The Prayer Chain "Mercury" Now on All Digital Networks + Live in 2023

One of our music scene’s best kept secrets is the band The Prayer Chain.

Well that now “classic” album “Mercury”, is available once again via all digital networks and streaming sites. I’ll be streaming it myself from Spotify today! The band have also announced possible new shows in 2023 and a possible “Live” Vinyl release next year as well.… Continued →

Song of The Day: Whitecross - Enough is Enough

Today’s song of the day is going back, I mean WAY back into Christian rock past. I’ve always dug the band Whitecross. So much of their music was similar to what was coming out in the 80’s/90’s sound wise but they had their own spin and music chops to back it up. Rex Carroll was a force of nature and Scott’s raw vocal talents cut through the noise and all those sappy moments. They were true innovators in a scene run rampant with drugs, sex, and that whole vulgar image people ate up.… Continued →

RIP Michael Bloodgood and Kaleb Luebchow

It is unfortunate news I bring you all today. Our music scene just lost two tremendous musicians and faithful servants. Michael Bloodgood who is the namesake and founding member of a legendary heavy metal band called Bloodgood that had quite a few huge albums release during the 80’s that shared Truth and Faith in a very real way through their songs and music. The band made a return about 10 years ago and released the fabulous, epic Christian Metal album “Dangerously Close” in 2013.… Continued →

Becoming The Archetype are on a roll. Not only did they just release a music video for the first single “The Lost Colony” but now they have put out single #2 – “The Remnant” through all digital networks and streaming sites. This absolute beast of a new album is shaping up to not only be the band’s best work but quite possibly one of the best METAL albums of 2022 (disclaimer: it’s possible the word ‘best’ could be outweighed by words like ‘insane’, ‘mind blowing’, ‘smashing’, ‘beast mode’, ‘slapping’, ‘award winning’, ‘critically acclaimed’, or an ‘underrated masterpiece’ and we are not responsible for misrepresenting Becoming The Archetype by undercounting the ferocious nature of said “masterpiece”).… Continued →
