"Hope Lies Within is a progressive metal collaboration of 5 close friends doing what they love most. Each with similar outlooks, goals and ideas musically, they work together to give listeners something substantial to listen to. Hope Lies Within wanders from the norm of mainstream music and catches your attention by demonstrating raw emotion and strong musicianship all at once." - POP Vulture Magazine
"Q: Who are the band’s biggest influences?
A: Killswitch, All that Remains, BTBAM, Opeth, but we are music students as well so we are very much influenced by Classical, Jazz and many other styles. Much of the progressiveness of Dan’s writing is influenced by his substantial knowledge and experience of Jazz and the harmonic structure he learned while playing, whereas much of my upbringing was rooted in Gospel and R&B/Hip Hop. So really there are a lot of things that influence every little thing we do. " The Wellz Street Journal
A Modernization of the German classical composer Franz Schubert's 1815 masterpiece "Der Erlkönig" or "The Erlking". Hope Lies Within crafted this piece to reflect all of the amazing compositional stylings of Shubert, yet HLW brings in the full arsenal of their talents to make this song their own. "It is unmistakably the Erlking, yet it is very different. Hope Lies Within skillfully arranged this song to be heavy and modern while retaining much of what is familiar. "Listeners will continue to discover new things hidden within the music the more they listen". - BlankTV
