Josh Scogin of The Chariot recently released the debut album of his mostly acoustic project, A Rose By Any Other Name entitled “One For My Master And One For My Dame.” The project has surprised a lot of people used to Josh’s aggressive side now being serenaded by rustic guitars and melodic croons. Alt Press.com has given a big seal of approval with a four star review here: http://www.altpress.com/reviews/entry/oneformymasterandoneformydame/

Choice quotes from the review include “sounding like the lost stories of a long-forgotten generation where campfires were the only setting a songwriter needed to tell a musical tale. Scogin’s vocals are a highlight throughout One for My Master And One for My Dame, crooning and harmonizing all along the way.”

Scogin just finished his first regional tour as A Rose this week which came through Atlanta, Arkansas Texas and Tennessee. CD’s and merchandise for sale at the following link

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
