“A Broken Line” is a three piece outfit from Long Beach, California, that has joined the Thumper Punk Records family of bands. The diversity of their hometown makes its way into the band’s sound which is an eclectic mix of street punk, ska, pop punk, metal, and good ol’ rock n roll. The band is known for their fiery live shows, powerful sound, and lyrics that reflect the battle for faith in a difficult world. The trio met at church and began playing house shows to raise money for the charity HOPE Worldwide. Slowly the band was given more opportunities to play shows in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Riverside at parking lots, bars, backyards, venues, even a mini-golf course. Ever since day one, the mission has remained the same: know God and make God known. A Broken Line exists to reflect this mission and to help inspire others to do the same. The band is currently writing and planning to record their first album.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
