On July 24-27, Metal Bible International and Metal Sanctuary will make a common mission outreach at Motorveckan in Lycksele, Sweden.
Motorveckan draws annually to around 70 000 visitors and we see it as an excellent opportunity to reach out to rockers, bikers and other motor interested. We are planning to be in place during Wednesday to Saturday when there is the most activity in town these days. As we want to be able to give away Bibles to those who want one, we need, besid
Friends - we have been busy! We are thrilled to announce the release of 4 CD Reissues! Three of these are by the amazing SACRED WARRIOR, who put together four consecutive albums that are as elite as metal can possibly be! And the fourth is a New Mexico band, Rapture from the mid 80's - the band would later change their name to the Moshketeers, but OH MY GOSH were they amazing as Rapture! Think early Deliverance (debut era) and Metal Church! Powerful metal guitars with a
Bloodgood’s Detonation hardly needs an introduction. This is – simply put – a classic within the Christian scene. The gritty melodic bite of David Zaffiro’s guitars, anchored by the solid rhythm section, combined with Les Carlson’s passionate and intense exhalations were the perfect formula not only for success, but more importantly, for the delivery of the Gospel message. Circa 1987, Stryper and a few other bands had made inroads into the metal community, but they were large
A little late to the glam metal and hair band scene, Holy Soldier was no slouch. I always thought of them, at least initially, as a cross between Bloodgood and Stryper. The Bloodgood influence was obviously from producer/guitarist David Zaffiro, his signature sound smattered all over the original 10 tracks. Whereas contemporaries Les Carlson and Michael Sweet were singing more in the stratosphere during that early era of Christian metal, Steven Patrick’s voice brought a nice
If you are a fan of the lyrical genius of Becoming the Archetype and industrial/electronic bass guitar and keyboard driven heavy music then you need to check out Jason Wisdom's latest release. “Voices/Of fear and confusion/Take hold of my mind/Distorting my vision/Make truth hard to find.” In essence, there exists, in this world, forces working against your mind to deceive and confuse. I really can’t think of a better description of the kind of struggle mankind is up against
Hailing from the East Coast and arriving with a thunderous roar is Ritual Servant. Their freshman release Metallum Evangelii is now available to the masses courtesy of Roxx Records. A two man project from Patrick Best and Seth Boone, they have clearly tapped a vein of pure 80's thrash gold. Having listened to this album several times now, I’m really amazed at how deep they mined this particular vein and how authentic it is. Delivering one hundred percent pure thrash metal.

Sacred Warrior is proud to announce the release of their newest single, "Blood River"! This is the culmination of many months of work, and showcases the newer, more modern sound that Sacred Warrior is developing. While the production value has significantly elevated, and the style and sounds may be different than what you're used to, the lyrics are 100% in your face and uncompromising as you've all come to expect from Sacred Warrior. This song is the heart cry of a pathetic,
HM Magazine veteran Lee Haley had a chance to catch up with Tourniquet's Ted Kirkpatrick about the long-awaited new album. Here's their conversation. Lee: What was the inspiration behind Gazing at Medusa? Ted: I’ve always liked Greek mythology and Hindu mythology and all that stuff. I thought, "What is it that I hear more from fans than almost anything else?" It is that they feel defeated. They feel defeated in life. Whether they are a believer or not, it's very easy to get
