Facedown Records signs In The Midst Of Lions

Official press release: Facedown Records is proud to announce the signing of St. Louis, Missouri's In The Midst of Lions. In the Midst of Lions grew up in the St. Louis music scene saturated with hardcore and indie bands. "Our local scene influenced our style to be a little bit different than the run of the mill death metal." A mixture of fast-paced tech metal and grinding melodic worship, their sound can be compared to such contemporaries as Meshuggah, The Faceless, Whitechapel, and Darkest Hour. ITMOL have been chomping at the bit to have the opportunity to tour full time since signing to Strike First Records in 2008, and that's exactly what they've been able to do. When citing goals touring is at the top of the list. "We've had a great time on the road and have pulled through a lot of van and trailer problems to stay on the road as much as possible and we don't plan on stopping anytime soon." With a Facedown album now in the works, ITMOL expects that the album will dwarf their previous Strike First release, saying that the concept of the album will be focused on God's wrath and humanity's release from that wrath that God has provided.
