James Mattern (of Open Grave Records/Divine Metal Distro) is compiling a book chronicling Christian metal in its various forms.  The book, entitled A – Z Discography of Christian Heavy Metal, seeks to be “a complete discography listing every track recorded by over 500 groups [including] member line-ups, catalogue numbers, demo recordings, compilation recordings [and] recommended must-have recordings.”  The project is being funded through kickstarter, and you can read more about it at kickstarter.com/projects/deathvalleyjim/a-z-discography-of-christian-heavy-metal.

Although James Mattern is behind the project, it is unclear who is helping compile the information.

Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
