Filmed in Atlanta by director by Nathan Corrona, the video explores creative film styles while bespectacled lead singer Jeremy Spring croons “Close Your Eyes, then we’ll start to see….”
“This was our first music video, and we weren’t sure what to expect,” explains Spring.  “The director took the phrase “you don’t answer to time” from the second verse and ran with it. We used a lot of organic special effects on the timing that really enhance the song.

“We are so happy with the way the video turned out, and are even more excited to partner with AbsolutePunk for the premier.”
CLOSE YOUR EYES has also been added to Paste Magazine’s “Songs for Haiti” Compilation.  100% of the funds contributed through “Songs for Haiti” will be spread among three charities active in the relief effort: Doctors Without Borders, Red Cross and Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund.  For more information, please see http://songsforhaiti.org

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.
