Formed in 2006, Inter Arma is one of the most talked about heavy bands to come out of Richmond, VA . The group (consisting of T.J. Childers - Drums, Steven Russell - Guitars, Trey Dalton - Guitars, Mike Paparo - Vocals, Joe Kerkes - Bass) formed in 2006 and released their crushing debut full-length Sundown via Forcefield Records in 2010 to much critical acclaim. Combining a punk rock ethos with an esoteric blend of psychedelia, black metal, and doom/sludge, the quintet quickly developed a name for themselves in the underground through relentless touring and mesmerizing live performances. After Sundown's release, Inter Arma began a rigorous DIY touring schedule, playing shows with bands like Cough, Krallice, Mutant Supremacy, Castevet, Royal Thunder, Ken Mode, The Body, Hull, Batillus, Black Breath and many more.

"The performance spaces of Nashville clubs like The End and Exit/In have incubated one of metal’s best-kept-secret scenes, as heard in the sludgy strivings of acts like Loss, Across Tundras, and the city's own Yautja. On their debut LP, Songs of Descent, the trio keep the doomy legacy of these forebears close—but not too close, since there are plenty of other ingredients in the mix: teeth-gnashing thrash, ferocious grindcore breakdowns, slabs of Palm Desert-style stoner rock, and a little industrial ambience." - Pitchfork.com
Guitarist/vocalist Mike Moracha and bassist/vocalist Nick Nava et al
-The stoner-thrashing three-piece will make their debut on EasyRider Records May 13 with No Blood No Sympathy, a full-length that takes great and efficient pleasure in crossing the line between heavy rock and metal over the course of its nine-songs/28-minutes, cuts like “Troubled Rose” metering rolling groove with gnarled-distortion even as the later “Debreeding” portrays the crossover punk roots of early thrash with a modern twist of fuzz and satisfying runs of bass.
-"Turn down the lights, put on a horror movie, crack open a beer and zone out on the sheer volume of No Blood, No Sympathy because it feels so damn good."
-The Big Takeover
"HORNSS does not beat around the bush, this is high octane, beer drinking music! ... It’s like if Fu Manchu got too paranoid from pot and switched to whiskey, beer, and Robert E. Howard novels." - The Sleeping Shaman
