HIMSA kicks off their first North American tour in almost two years tonight as they hit the road with Amon Amarth and Sonic Syndicate. The group have triumphantly returned with a devastating new offering, Summon In Thunder, which is already being hailed by critics and fans as the bands career defining opus. See below or visit www.myspace.com/himsa for their complete tour routing.
The inaugural episode of HIMSA TV, shot by King of Hearts Productions, has been posted online. In this wacky segment the guys give you a firsthand look into the insanity that took place at their record release show and present some out-takes from their Unleash Carnage video shoot. Click on the link below to check it out and stay tuned each week for new episodes from the road.
Derek Harn (bass) checks in with the following report:
Hey HIMSA dominion! Its been well over a year since weve done a full U.S. tour and were all anxious to get back out on the road and rock you again. Our latest album, Summon In Thunder, has been getting great reviews and a lot of excitement from fans new and old. Well be playing a lot of new material on these dates and we have a new powerhouse of a drummer named Joe Frothingham. He hails from the woods of Washington state and he loves to beat the hell out of his drums.
We are very fortunate to be playing these dates with Amon Amarth and look forward to making friends with them and Sonic Syndicate. Our thoughts and best wishes go out to the members of Decapitated and their families. Their presence on this tour will be sadly missed.
We recently played our record release show in Seattle at El Corazon.We themed it out with tennis gear like the Unleash Carnage video. Things got crazy, bodies and balls were flying constantly. Check out the webisode of that and the out-takes from the music video. Well be bringing you another installment next week with more footage and craziness from the road. We look forward to seeing you headbanging in the crowds across the country. Be sure to stop by our merch table to give us some high-fives.
HIMSA recently completed a very unique video for the track, Big Timber, with director Jared Eberhardt. This is an abstract clip that focuses on the journeys of Sasquatch; you have to see it to truly believe it. Click the link below to check it out.
The Seattle-based metal quintets ferocious blend of melodic, unrelenting thrash speed mixed with old-school influences results in a savage, unique and uncompromising sound that is welcome, refreshing and undeniable. This scorching new effort (and debut Century Media offering) also marks the return of original guitarist, Sammi Curr, to the fold. With Curr rejoining and collaborating with Kirby Johnson (guitars), the groups integrity and passion were at an all-time high, resulting in their most dynamic, yet devastating material yet.
In 2007, HIMSA are destined to leave a definitive mark on the genre.
Summon In Thunder is without a doubt the groups finest offering yet.
This is the sound of American metals next truly great band realizing their own excellence and basking in a self-made glow of invincibility9 out of 103
