Instrumental indie rock super group Unwed Sailor has released a new video to accompany their single “Camino Reel.” The song comes from their soon-to-be-released album Look Alive, and their recent material finds them rocking out a little bit more than in the past.

My Epic Unleash Their Heavy New Track "White Noises" (Feat. Cory Brandan)

My Epic are back with a new song titled “White Noises” featuring Cory Brandan the frontman for Norma Jean. If you don’t know who My Epic are and aren’t familiar with Cory’s work, check out this song! This is an explosive, glass shattering heavy new track with enough sonic depth that it simply overwhelms the senses. I think there are three different fans of My Epic, the ones who love the light stuff (Broken Voice), the heavy “Behold”, and the ones who appreciation EVERYTHING the band does.… Continued →

New(ish) Norma Jean - "Children of the Dead"

Most Anticipated Releases of 2019: Rob Jensen

So, 2018 is behind us, another year on the books. After having put together a list of my favorite releases for the year, I decided to try going in the opposite direction and form a list of the albums I’m anticipating most in the coming year. Now, a bit of a heads up before we dig in; I am almost certainly missing some albums here. Some may have escaped my attention, and I’m sure there are more to be announced yet as well.… Continued →

5 Christian Metal/Hardcore Bands That You May Not Have Heard Of

These are some bands that were sort of popular, but didn’t get very far. Hopefully this sheds some light to the underground SFHC Scene or more appropriately, SFMC Scene. 5. One Way/Raid Christian metalcore/hardcore One Way formed in… I don’t know when. The 80’s. The band did not have very much success or really any publications. Other than one in HM in 1991. But Raid, their next band, had a little more success. Same genre as One Way, but with a Straight-Edge message, alongside the uplifting Christian message.… Continued →

5 Christian Metal Bands You May Not Have Heard Of (80's/90's Version)

Today, I am posting a list of Christian Metal bands from the old days that aren’t mentioned very often when talking about Christian metal. Most of them tend to be Nu-metal, ironically, even though the 90’s was the time for Nu-Metal/Rapcore. 5. Oficina G3 Oficina G3 is a Christian prog metal act from the late 80’s. Forming in 1987, the band began as a heavy metal/hard rock band, influenced by Stryper and Petra, but progressed into a Progressive metal/nu-metal/metalcore-ish band.… Continued →

REVIEW : Norma Jean - Polar Similar

The Almighty Norma Jean simply cannot be stopped. The storied band just released their seventh record, and it’s their best yet. They’ve reunited with Solid State records, their production has never sounded better, and despite having been around over fifteen years, Polar Similar proves they haven’t lost any steam. Norma Jean has been an anomaly for quite a few years. Meridional and Wrongdoers showed the group continuing to stretch themselves to top each previous studio effort.… Continued →
