HEELE Reflects on His Childhood with New Track “Still Intact”

With a grungy feel, a groove heavy bass line, and pitch perfect alt-rock vocals, HEELE’s latest single “Still Intact” explores singer/songwriter Michael Henss‘s early life – as he looks back and contemplates about his past. As Henss himself describes:

The inspiration for this song came from a long-lost home video of my early childhood.

Lyrically, I’ve tried to reconcile the emotions that it conjured up within me while watching it for the first time.

While HEELE’s sound is often described as an intersection of metal, alternative rock, and industrial music – this single is decidedly a melodic alternative rock song with strong 90s grunge influences. It makes sense given the song’s inspiration and its content that it wouldn’t be a face melting metal track.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
