Song of the Day: Resurrection Band - Beggar in the Alleyway

Depending on how you define the term, Resurrection Band was arguably the first Christian heavy metal band. While their debut album was released in 1978, their earliest demo recordings date back to as early as 1973. While many fans and critics will argue, “they’re not heavy metal, just hard rock,” this outlook unfortunately judges the past by current standards.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Creed - Meet Again (no, not THAT Creed)

Long before Scott Stapp was crooning about going higher and breaking out of his own prison, there was this Creed, a traditional heavy metal band from Germany. The band released only one full-length album through Pias Music in Europe (and Pure Metal in North America), after releasing an obscure EP. The band played an intensely melodic brand of heavy metal without ever crossing into glam.… Continued →

BROTALITY Detonates an Insane Heavy Metal Bomb

A new band I’ve just become acquainted with called BROTALITY, have dropped their heavy metal explosion of an album titled “Worldwide Desolation” and it’s a total winner. This band is super young, all teenagers, but don’t let that stop you from consuming their overwhelmingly solid sound. Age is nothing more than a number and in the case of this band on a scale of 1 to 100, they clock in at AWESOME.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Rage of Angels - Don't Give Up

Glam metal gets a bad rap. Especially in punk/indie/hardcore circles. Except for the occasional semi-ironic nod to the genre, it doesn’t get much love outside of 40- and 50-something dads who like to show off old photos of their teenage mullets. Whether the cheesyness or the sleaziness is to blame, folks seem to have a love-hate relationship with it.… Continued →

Love and Death Drop Major Tease

Love and Death have just dropped the biggest tease ever which builds upon years of anticipation for new music. Check it out below. Date is 11.13.2020. What does it mean? Rob J. and I have the answer (we think) to this mystery but we can’t share just yet. (Please excuse the 7 year old pic).… Continued →

Song of the Day: Warlord - Where the Road Forks

If you asked me what the heaviest Christian release of all time was, a strong contender would be the self-titled EP from Portand’s Warlord (not to be confused with the secular heavy metal band of the same name). One of the earliest releases on the Tooth & Nail imprint, Solid State Records, their debut EP featured deep, dark, heavy riffs and lengthy songs.… Continued →

Please list artist name covering a song and song title below this post in the comments section so I can take your suggestions and add them.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Trouble - The Misery Shows (II)

Though a fantastic classic/doom metal band, Chicago’s Trouble were always slightly confusing. They often used Christian imagery, biblically-themed lyrics, and somewhat uncharacteristically for doom metal–a positive outlook. Take this ballad from their 1990 self-titled album: Please, take His hand The time has come to learn Please, take my hand Let me take you to learn And yet, the band played almost exclusively secular venues with other secular artists, and depending on which band members you talked to, they seemed to distance themselves from the “Christian” tag.… Continued →
