Introducing a New Website and a New Song from The Offshore Accounts (Mainframe/Brownstory)

I am proud to introduce you all to this really great and encouraging new bible-based website called I Am A Wall. You can find the site at iamawall.com. Here are a few words about the site from its founder, Kim: “Each musician takes on a chapter in the bible to study. He or She then creates a song from what the Lord says to the individual. Iamawall is simply a documentation of what the musician creates.Continued →

Song of the Day: The Louvin Brothers - Satan's Jeweled Crown

Some of you are going to hate me for including this (what?!? country music on IVM?!?) Others of you–maybe only a few–will recognize the importance this type of music played on the development of both rock and roll (which somewhat ironically owes a huge debt to country music), as well as to contemporary forms of Christian music, because of the strong relationship between country music and Gospel music in the middle part of the last century.… Continued →

Craig's Brother Release "Superhero"

Craig’s Brother just released one of their strongest songs since “Follow Your Heart”. This one is my favorite of the new stuff alongside Terrible Slave of course. It has that classic CB feel and adds a certain metallic guitar moment (even a solo), mid-way through the song. The music just flows so well and lyrically is as sharp as ever. Like their (mostly) unreleased song “Crutch”, there is a slight curse word which might turn off the grandparents, but it is fairly mild, just some excrement tossed around 😉 Check out “Superhero” below.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Jesus Freaks - Hate vs Sub-Train - Epidermis

Jesus Freaks was a thrash groove metal band that changed their name to Sub-Train after releasing 2 albums. They had some decent Christian metal airplay back in the day. Yeah they sounded like Metallica ripoff, but I’m not too worried about it. They still have headbanging music! And yes, I thought about this band when DC Talk came out with their Jesus Freak stuff.  And as a sidenote, Scott Waters’ No Life Til Metal site has a great review on them as he toured with them while with Ultimatum.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Honey - The Way You Move Me

I can only think of 1 or 2 songs where the structure of the song is built primarily around one chord. It’s a pretty risky thing to try. Luxury did it with “South” from their debut album. While there are probably others, the only other one I’m aware of is Honey’s “The Way You Move Me” from their sophomore album, Lost on You. A one-chord song seems like it would be incredibly boring, but with the various embellishments, runs that weave in and out, and ways they alter the chord (okay, technically it’s not only one chord–but it’s built around only one) keep things very interesting and almost psychedelic.… Continued →

REVIEW : Rackets and Drapes - Chapter One: Welcome Home (New album)

Shock rockers R&D have released their new album which is the first of the Sanatorium collection & is currently on all digital networks as of tomorrow. I have been friends with Kandy for many years & have enjoyed all the music I have been sent that they have been working on. If you are a long time fan, you will recognize the reworks such as Milk & Cookies & Stix & Stonz. There is also a new one Suicide Machine which I had the opportunity to hear a demo probably a year or so ago now.… Continued →

Maylene and the Sons of Disaster Return With "Burn The Witches"

It’s so good to see and hear from Dallas Taylor on this new song, “Burn The Witches”. Once again, Dallas returns to his rightful place, fronting one of the finest metal/rock bands around – Maylene and the Sons of Disaster. Many wondered if he’d ever recover from his tragic accident but here he is bursting out from the studio and soon from the stage at Furnace Fest in a few weeks. Check out the new song and music video for “Burn The Witches”, below.… Continued →

Saint Valleta (The Beautiful Mistake, Stranger Kings) - Scars (New Song)

Saint Valleta which is the new project from Josh H. of The Beautiful Mistake and Stranger Kings (among many other bands and projects), has just released a new song titled “Scars”. It follows up that post-hardcore/emo/rock sound perfectly and is not only a trip through nostalgia but a modern take on rock n roll with a moody introspective vibe. Like Thursday meets Glassjaw, Anberlin, and Armor For Sleep. Check out “Scars”, below and make sure to add to your playlists.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Torn in Two - Plastic Dreams for Shining Rings

There was a lot of hype surrounding this band when they were first signed by Facedown Records, in large part based on the fact they had three vocalists. While the hype, and sadly also the band, were short-lived (they only released one full-length and one 3-way split album), they definitely generated a healthy buzz in their short existence. And for good reason too. Soli Deo Gloria (roughly translated as “to the glory of God alone”) dropped in 2001, and stylistically the album shows its age.… Continued →

Introducing: ISLY

I would like to take a moment to introduce our readers to a new indie pop group called “ISLY”. I found them through TikTok and the music they create is more in line with The Weeknd, Twenty One Pilots, and Owl City than some of the more heavier aspects of the music scene. Their music and message is much needed in today’s dark, cynical, and often times bleak sub-culture that seems to drive people’s interests. The music has an upbeat feel and the beats themselves are an attractive sound that’ll draw you in.… Continued →
