Honey For Christ are a Northern Ireland based pure heavy metal band formed through obsession with metal music and all that it stands for. The band refuse to hold back on musical influences and only play what they want to hear; dark and emotional heavy fucking metal.
Honey For Christ were formed in November 1998 by 5 friends with a passion for music. All categories of metal were forgotten and it was agreed that no member would hold back any influence, and this created the sound of Honey for Christ.
From March 1999 to 2002 the band released 3 successful demos; April of 1999 the debut “Long Way Down & Rising” was recorded on 4 track.
The demo was heavily distributed and achieved very good press in both fanzines and magazines The events of 2000 led to the creation of a self financed EP, entitled “The Art of Self Abuse & Soul Erosion,”
In June 2002 the band were taken into a professional studio to capture the power and intensity that the music deserves; the outcome was “Forging Iron Will.” Again critically acclaimed by fanzines and the mainstream, the disc was a great success, and was featured as album of the month by metalUK.
In 2007 Honey For Christ decided to venture to Europe, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Germany and The Netherlands all geting a taste of the metal madness! Reacitions were very positive and the band had a great time.
2009 saw HFC retreat to their rehearsal room to complete the new tracks needed for the next release. 7 new tracks and a re-recording of the now popular live track, "The Final Transition."
Locked in the studio for 6 months 2010 saw the inception of the Honey For Christ debut full length album, "The Cruelty of Great Expectations." Recorded in Rundown Studios where the band had complete control the album has turned out exactly as planned; 8 tracks of bleakness marred in misery and degradation.
Released in 30th April 2011 this will be Honey For Christ's finest hour.
With more tours planned Honey For Christ continue - 100% raw, unclean, uncut hard & honest heavy fucking metal!!!
