Have you heard of Gears of Redemption?

Oklahoma’s Gears of Redemption is Nu-metal at its finest imho. RIYL: Korn, These 5 Down, etc… Complete with a thumping bass guitar, driving drums & angst ridden vocals, this 4 piece band brings the controlled chaos. 2000’s The War of Blood & Rust (released by Godfather records) was the only album to emerge before the band disbanded. The rockier indie Christian shows showcased This Is Me, Shedding Skin & My Life in their playlists. Their song No Time found its way on Cross Rhythms Extreme Music Sampler Vol 4.  One can still access their old Angelfire homepage which has the bio for their bass player which I find to be one of the best in the genre. This is their song My Life

For myself and Reese the drummer, the music had to be percussive and rugged. Not polished and overdubbed. An approach similar Slip Knot. We all contributed to the writing and vocals. The head of Godfather Records hated our vocal approach.… Read more »
