Video footage of the Heavy Metal Ensemble Of Lawrence University (HMELU) performing songs by TESTAMENT, BLIND GUARDIAN, VENOM, METAL CHURCH and FINNTROLL on May 2, 2013 at at the Lawrence University Memorial Chapel in Appleton, Wisconsin can be seen below.

According to The Lawrentian, the Heavy Metal Ensemble Of Lawrence University is “a unique ensemble of twenty-two musicians which made its first appearance in 2006 and consisted of drums, guitar and low winds and then went into hiatus until current senior Calvin Armstrong revived the ensemble last school year, 2011-2012, for HMELU‘s first large group performance as well as the small group concert ‘Dopesmoker’.

“This year, the ensemble featured the unconventional mixture of bass, tenor and soprano saxophones, two French horns, two trumpets, including piccolo trumpet, tuba, a full trombone section, two guitars, two cellos, bass, drums, percussion and, of course, vocals. Armstrong and junior Tyler Kundinger traded off vocal duties amid a few purely instrumental tunes.

HMELU has become quite a culture within the Conservatory, with its artistic use of corpse paint for every musician and the now-iconic photographs of the ensemble around campus. This year introduced new metal names for each musician; every member chose a name from mythology, often Norse, phrases translated from Norwegian, Finnish and Icelandic languages or names from existing bands’ members.”

[EDIT] COREY TWEETED THE FOLLOWING EARLIER TODAY: Thank you all for your concerns. I appreciate them and all that the Des Moines community is doing for me. If you have any info please contact the West Des Moines PD. FYI- the basses stolen were not Paul’s personal basses. They were Paul Gray Signature Basses from Ibanez.”

Guitarist/vocalist Frank Van Kwarte of Sargon has issued the following announcement about recruiting a second guitar player for live shows:

“It’s with great pleasure that I announce the addition of Arizona’s own Jack Flieger (Singularity) as a touring member who will play the second guitar with us at The Goregrowler’s Ball Fest in San, Antonio Texas on November 18th, 2011.

“We are very grateful to Jack for helping us out with this show because it’s our intention to reproduce our debut album from start to finish just how it’s recorded, and we really do need two guitars to to that!

“After a few rehearsals with him, I can surely say that he’ll blow a few minds in Texas.”
