Empty Atlas - Half Magic (New Song)

Empty Atlas also dropped a new song on last Friday titled “Half Magic”. This rising star in the realm of indie music is fast becoming one of my favorite bands. Please make sure you give them a fair listen and check out their other recent tracks while you’re at it. I know soon that you’ll be in agreement with me on the fact that this is a highly talented and super enjoyable band.… Continued →

Anberlin Announce New EP + New Song

I missed posting about this over the long Fourth of July weekend. Was busy with family and health issues. Anyway, one of my personal favorite Rock bands are back in action. Anberlin have announced their signing to Equal Vision (as reported earlier) and just dropped their new single “Circles”. While different, this song invokes a certain familiarity and instant likability. If you are a longtime fan then I’m sure many of you will appreciate the new direction.… Continued →

Gametime - J.A.R. (Green Day Cover)

Melodic punk band – Gametime, just dropped another NEW song and this time it’s a really cool cover of the Green Day b-side “J.A.R (Jason Andrew Relva)” which originally appeared on the “Angus” movie soundtrack back in 1995. It was one of their best B-sides and has since been re-released on the Green Day “International Superhits” album. Don’t be like other people and decide to jump ship to another country, give this solid melodic punk cover a listen today!… Continued →

Song of the Day: Deliverance - No Love

Metalheads are divided over whether the subgenre dubbed “speed metal” actually exists or not. Often confused with shred metal and/or Neo-classical (yes, those guys play fast, but that’s not the same thing), it’s almost synonymous with thrash except there are often clean vocals and/or slightly cleaner guitars. In the Christian scene, the most obvious examples are the seminal and fantastic Valor, Tourniquet’s early work (also adding a progressive element) and the mighty Deliverance. While Deliverance has flirted with a lot of different styles (speed/thrash, gothic metal, alternative metal, groove, etc.),… Continued →

Song of the Day: Slick Shoes - Fulfilling

This band is cool. I remember seeing them back in the day & I was impressed. I’d consider them pop punk & they were one of the early T&N bands that I had collected. Chose this one as I always understood the lyrics. The life’s torn from you, there is nowhere to turn. You’re all alone, you feel hollow and empty. Nothing you do can suppress the heartache that you feel. The only strength you have is used to cry in misery.… Continued →

P.O.D. Are Re-Releasing "When Angels & Serpents Dance" With Bonus Tracks

After 14 years, “When Angels & Serpents Dance” is finally getting the release treatment it should have always gotten. This is a favorite P.O.D. album of mine next to their other big hits like Fundamental, Satellite, Testify, etc. This album had a very commercial sound and had that “hit” potential but for whatever reason, disappeared to the piles of thrift store dust bins. On October 14th 2022, Mascot Label Group will re-release the P.O.D. album newly remixed, remastered, and with 3 bonus tracks not on the original album.… Continued →

The band returns with a new song today called “The Lost Colony” off the forthcoming album titled “Children of The Great Extinction”. How great is that title and that art is pure fire! Listen to the song now on all digital networks and pre-order the album right here.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Dogwood - In The Line of Fire

With regard to the news of today that is surely causing friend to turn against friend, family members against each other, man against man, woman against woman, and the general disregard for one’s truth, with precious life taking a back seat, I thought I’d share a song that fits today’s message. This song is called “In The Line of Fire” and it appears on Dogwood’s 2nd full length record, “Through Thick and Thin” (1997). It’s a great song and the sentiment still rings true.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Bruce Cockburn - Wondering Where the Lions Are

This veteran, Canadian singer-songwriter has been active since at least the early 70s (probably earlier), since his debut eponymous album came out in 1970. I first became acquainted with his music in the 1990s, reading an album review in CCM Magazine, but also hearing equally about his accolades from the secular press. I took a chance on buying a live album, when I found a copy of his 1990 live album (he’s done at least 5 live albums), Bruce Cockburn Live on cassette.… Continued →
