SARDONYX is a power metal band that was known for killer music and an uncompromising message. Choosing to remain unsigned, the band reached many thousands of teens during their active touring period from 1988-1994. Many were surprised and delighted when Sardonyx returned this spring with a new cd Sons of the Kingdom that's blowing people away with songs full of conviction, and powerful music that sounds like they haven't skipped a beat at all. I recently met up with singer T
The new album, The Great Divide, by Millennial Reign drops May 25 on Ulterium Records. I sat down with founding member and guitarist Dave Harvey for the following interview. How important is album artwork to you? How does it interact with the music you are making? I think it’s very important. It needs to reflect the album title and be eye catching. It should tell the story without words. Jan Yrlund did an awesome job capturing the feel of the new album title. Your music is di
The US power metal band MILLENNIAL REIGN will release their new album "The Great Divide" on May 25th via Ulterium Records. The album will be available on CD, LP and digital. The LP edition is strictly limited to 300 copies worldwide. "Till The End", the second single from the album can be streamed at YouTube below. The Great Divide feels like a more focused and powerful album than its precursor and the new vocalist Travis Wills [Infidel Rising] really shines through the album
Metal Praise And Exhortation Sardonyx’s 1992 debut Majestic Serenity was one of the best independently released “ministry” metal albums ever, in my opinion. Tom Denlinger’s eccentric, yet incredibly charismatic and convicting vocal onslaught combined with a bass-thick, mid-tempo crunch to create an unusual mix of “classic metal-infused,” progressively doomy metal. Moreover, with Scripture references galore, the lyrics were—and remain today—a veritable Bible study. Songs like
From the Sardonyx camp: Hello Everyone! In the days leading up to our album release on the 13th, we will be completing our online store. Please pray for us as we put the finishing touches on this new ministry tool for world of metal! There has been a lot of talk about revival in the Christian Metal world. There is a great need for God’s men and women to return to the things He has called them to do (Ephesians 2:10). It has been three years since we first started working on
When bands directly send you their material to ask for a review, you just never know what you are going to get. In this day of do-it-yourself recording, the quality of tunes can vary quite a bit, and often times there are quite a few band releasing sub-par material — with no label or management involved, it easily happens. So, when I received a note asking me to review this unknown band Seventh Servant and their self-released 2-track single, I didn't know what to expect. I ta
There have been some requests to republish the "top 100 list," so here is the essential content (sans album pics) from the 'list' as originally published in 2010 for the 25th Anniversary issue (#86) of the Heaven's Metal fanzine. Keep in mind that this list doesn't include anything released post 2010. The plan is to eventually make this issue (along with other back issues) available to view in its (their) original, full color glory (pdf format). Stay tuned for that, but in th
Born out of darkness, the band started with Bassist Est Coachman, Drummer Lord Mad Max, Guitarists Carlos Illuminati Hunter and Edy Guttenfly and multi-instrumentalist and Vocalist Nocturnu Grave Digger. Three years after formation, they released NIGHT OF HALLOWEEN in 2011 via Extreme Records. A year later, they released CEMETERY PORTER with a different label, Sanctus Gladius Records. TALES AFTER MIDNIGHT came out the next year, through Sanctus Gladius, followed by ZOMBIE whi
We had a great time during the first week of September at Alaska Audio Works in Chugiak, Alaska. Bill Pagaran worked very hard laying down drum tracks which will be replacing the existing electronic scratch tracks. Check out this video from inside the control room. Please pray for our main engineer mix down and mastering guru, (and guitarist for the project) Rod Feltman, who is co-producing this new project with frontman, Tom Denlinger. Rod will be working on these songs over
