Biography

Armed with loud guitars, aggressive vocals, and thunderous drums this Chicago based group sets its attack on the music world with the intention of bringing Heavy Metal back to the masses.

Since the band’s inception in 2003, HEMI has always been determined to be a band that carried the torch of the true heavy metal sound pioneered by the legendary acts of the 1970’s and 1980’s that influenced them so greatly. Taking such influence and blending it with their own unique style, HEMI has produced a sound that has set them apart from many of the bands of today and put them in a category all by themselves.

Formed in their hometown of Chicago, the band set its goals early and cut several demos with various lineups throughout the years before recording and releasing their debut album “Fire in the Sky” in 2007. Met with an overwhelming response, “Fire in the Sky” quickly catapulted HEMI into an underground mainstream which caught not only the eyes and ears of thousands of new fans, but also, critics and industry professionals alike such as famed producer Michael Wagener (Ozzy, Metallica, Dokken, Skid Row, Accept) who gave the band very positive reviews on their work. “Fire in the Sky” was consequently distributed digitally to every major downloadable channel, and is also famous for being the only independently released LP to be distributed by Hot Topic stores across the country.

In 2008, HEMI teamed up with RavensFilm Productions to contribute the title track of the album to an upcoming motion picture called “The Fixer.” Director Nick Michalak saw a unique opportunity to work with HEMI further documenting the film’s release and their involvement by producing a music video for the album’s title track.
