Harp & Lyre’s new full length record Intentions will be released on October 9th. For nearly the last four years Harp & Lyre has been a voice in the movement of music, giving some a soundtrack to parallel their lives, all the while on a journey that holds no one specific definition or outcome. They call upon anyone who will listen to their melodies to not hold them in regard to the others that try to settle in but to look in light of where the melodies derive, not stopping for one demographic but growing and cultivating sound that agrees with and spawns from a reflection of honesty and urgency.  That urgency has been stitch in the seam of their integrity, keeping them close to the reasons for their origin. They look not to make a name for themselves but to take part in the larger movement that has been at work years before their arrival, helping secure a community that spans more than just their dwellings in Oklahoma.

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.
