Song of the Day: Apostle - The Sword

One of the most beloved and respected bands in the traditional heavy metal scene, Apostle was a slight anomaly in that they never released an album on a record label. Formed in 1983 in Jacksonville, FL, the band released a total of 5 independent full-length albums (not to mention EPs and compilations) all while remaining an unsigned band. Apostle opened for Christian metal stalwarts Whitecross on a national tour, and also had a song featured on East Coast Metal for Regency Records, in 1988, where I first heard the band.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Kids - Golden Road

Kids is a relatively new indie rock band out on Tooth & Nail records. Today’s SOTD is an upbeat love song that will get stuck in your head. Check out the lyrics below. Well I don’t know the future so I wonder How to know if a golden road will end And the dreams we dream may lead to certain failure But where the road goes lead me to her All I know is I’m gonna marry that girl I’m gonna marry that girl I’m gonna marry that girl Can’t wait to tell her I will I’m gonna marry that girl No time for anyone else I’m gonna marry that girl Gone the days are all the pain and heartache Gone the dames and all failed attempts Cause the dreams we dare to dream are being granted I’ll claim forever until it happens All I know is Continued →

Song of the Day: GFM - Smile

Gold Frankincense & Myrrh (stylized as GFM) is a metal band comprised of 3 sisters. With so much talent for being so young, this band has a great future & have put out so much music in so little time. This review is also in reference to my friend Blake who runs Reanimated Radio who likes this band as much as I do! This SOTD was hard to choose from my other fave Graveyard of Identities, but is because of its lyrical content.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Wage War -Grave

Wage War is a newer band in my collection. Disclaimer-They seem to be a quasi-Christian band as has had not too much recognition in the Christian market, but I have seen their videos that hint at the subject. Other bands that fall in the quasi category are Memphis May Fire, The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon, etc… Anyways, this song is so darn catchy & just happens to be one I can relate to. Just know that in Jesus, anyone can change if they let the Holy Sprit lead.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Fireflight - What I've Become

Fireflight is one of the bands that each cd they have come out out with, there is always one that stands out the most to me.

I have not heard much of their latest so I will be checking it out soon.… Continued →

REVIEW : MrENC - On and On and On

Right off the bat, it’s loud and energetic.  This is melodic, yet noisy indie rock, reminiscent of the classic 90s Britpop with hints of 70s glam (think the rock riffs of Suede meet the swagger of The Divine Comedy).  But don’t be fooled, this isn’t simply nostalgic stuff, stuck in the past.  There is a real energy and drive to this music that captures one’s attention right off the bat. For those who don’t know, MrENC is Eric Collins’ nom-de-rock (formerly of Denison Marrs). … Continued →
