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 with grinding melodic metal, their sound can be compared to such contemporaries as Meshuggah, The Faceless, Whitechapel, and Darkest Hour. After the success of their debut album “Out of Darkness” (2009 Strike First Records), In the Midst of Lions were signed to Facedown Records where they have continued to tour heavily and build their loyal fanbase nationwide. The spring of 2010 saw them headlining the Facedown Records “Young & Wreckless Tour” with label mates A Hope For Home, Hands, and Onward to Olympas and this summer the band will be on the “Scream The Prayer Tour” with For Today, Maylene and the Sons of Disaster, A Plea For Purging and many more.
Their new album “The Heart of Man” was recorded with Jamie King (Between the Buried And Me, For Today) and is a sonically crushing metal album that is sure to impress fans and critics.
