War of Ages - Cut Throat (Lyric Video)

The insanely talented metal(core) band, War Of Ages, returns with their politically charged new anthem titled “Cut Throat”. The song and it’s lyrics are basically an answer to all the movements on both sides that incite violence and hatred without offering any clear direction. It’s a hopeful call to arms in a biblical sense and doesn’t hold back lyrically. This is a band that has always stood for what is good and right and clearly points people towards a biblical worldview without being ashamed. Bold and unafraid, ready to share in love and out of a love that comes from a relationship with our savior Jesus Christ. Musically it’s heavy hitting, explosive and abrasive metalcore with a message the world definitely needs right now. This my friends is “Cut Throat”. Continued →

XIII Minutes - Machaira (Lyric Video)

We are excited to bring you the brand new lyric video from Rottweiler Records act, XIII Minutes. The song is titled “Machaira” and can be purchased right here via bandcamp.

I’ve been pleasantly surprised that “Machaira” has been as well received as it has. It’s a bit slower in tempo than what we’ve released to date. Not that I’m complaining though… I appreciate Indie Vision Music for premiering this lyric video. It’s been my favorite one. There is a subtle, yet powerful imagery to it. Hopefully, the viewer will dig a bit deeper into the song meaning. 2017 has been an exciting year for XIII Minutes. It’s great to release our newest Digital 45. We hope that our listeners continue to stay tuned for future music – Jamie Kucinski (XIII Minutes) Continued →

The Best of 1997: Favorite Hits From 20 Years Ago

Yep, the list you’ve all been waiting for (not really) is finally here. Feel free to offer up some laughs and critical remarks for the music I listened to the most 20 years ago. You’ll notice a heavy T&N presence and I just couldn’t help myself. There were a lot of albums and releases I found myself spinning back then and still getting plays today. I think that’s where this list falls in place, it’s the albums that had the longest lasting impact with me and had a catchy sound that I just couldn’t get enough of. I ride more on the commercial, melodic side of the market rather than all that arty ear splitting noise rock ;) I created a special Spotify play list that you can find near the end of the article. Some of these titles are out of print and only available in YouTube form so enjoy those unheard hits within the article. Remember kids, “some” of these releases may not have the best language so if you get queasy at the thought of dirty words from the general market (do we still use the word ‘secular’?) bands, you may want to skip those parts. So check out my faves below and don’t forget to check out “The Best of 2007” list which can be found here. Hop in your time machine and let’s get ready to party like its 1997! Continued →

Steadfast Records Resurfaces, Original ZAO Releases Get Re-Released

Steadfast Records has returned and with that comeback is the announcement that the first 2 releases by ZAO (before they signed with Solid State) have been re-released. That’s right kiddos, get “All Else Failed” (original version), and the ZAO/Outcast “Split” on all digital networks. Listen on Spotify below. Steadfast Records was the work of Matt Traxler, a member of legendary groups like Six Feet Deep, and Brandtson before those amazing bands broke up. My hope is for a Brandtson reunion. Can’t wait for the “Radiowaves and Other Gibberish” Compilation to get the re-release treatment
