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.

Blabbermouth


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

HIMSA have triumphantly returned with a monstrous new effort, Summon In Thunder, which is a dynamic, thrashing metal assault that will quickly force the entire genre to take notice. Steve Carter (who produced HIMSAs second album Courting Tragedy and Disaster) produced the music while Devin Townsend (Lamb of God, Darkest Hour) produced vocals and the renowned Tue Madsen (The Haunted) brought it all together nailing the mixing and mastering duties.

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.

Reversing the meaning of a Sanskrit word for peace and harmony among all creatures, HIMSA's name now rightfully dubs them the bearers of rage and wrath, essentially translating to "living life with the most amount of harm and evil possible." With a name embodying the very nature of heavy metal, the HIMSA of this day and age have earned themselves the name they've had since 1998 through constant touring and undying devotion to the band's cause.

Through the course of eight years, fads have come and gone, and musical tastes within metal have shifted like the tides. But all along, HIMSA's veins have undoubtably flowed with metal. One foot of the band's collective conscious has been continually striding forward to lead an ever-evolving metal scene, while the other has remained planted in their old-school roots.

In 2007, HIMSA are destined to leave a definitive mark on the genre.
