His Name is Alive returns to the stage after spending years in the studio writing and recording the rock opera, Tecuciztecatl. "The new unit is a prog bubble gum machine," and they've added a mellotron to the mix. For fans of horror movie soundtracks, psychedelics, fuzz guitar and mellotron, this is a great way to spend the holiday. This special Devil's Night in Detroit event also includes opening acts Wiccans and the Decamp Sisters.

Silver Mountain is pleased to announced the debut of some new download albums that were previously available as ultra-limited tour editions.

Now available as of today are three new His Name Is Alive albums.

Cliff Bells Vanilla originally appeared as disc #7 in the 2010 ceramic box set and most recently as a concert DVD earlier this year. Now it's finally available as a Silver Mountain download in both MP3 and lossless FLAC formats.

Continuing the His Name Is Alive reinterpretation series that began with Livonias Strings is the brand new Home Is, a modern reimagining of the band's 1991 4AD album Home Is In Your Head. Home Is highlights the talents of Jean Cook's strings and voice.

Rounding out our triple crown of HNIA goodness is Dragons Look Out Your Window, featuring open sound, instrumentals, soundtracks and loops. Recorded 2012 and 2013 by Warren Defever and Cassandra Verras.

Check them out in our Silver Mountain store
along with dozens of other Silver Mountain gems. Listen to sound samples plus check out the free downloadable MP3s in the detailed release listings.
