arkofthecovenant
We are excited to announce that Ark of the Covenant have signed with Facedown Records.
AOTC came out swinging in 2011 with that infamous Connecticut brand of driven hardcore. They recorded their EP Separation at Silver Bullet Studio (Shai Hulud, Life in Your Way) and released it with Strike First Records. Now they’re back at Silver Bullet, recording their first full length Self Harvest with Gregory Thomas of Misery Signals.
The band’s debut EP garnered much praise and appeared on Best of 2011 lists.
Hopecore said “It has EVERYTHING…”  “…comparable to Impending Doom and The Acacia Strain, but with a signature sound that sets them apart”
“heaviness that rips bands such as Emmure into pieces…ridiculously brutal” – Erik Thomas, Teeth of the Divine

Ark of the Covenant’s debut full length Self Harvest will be released on Facedown Records this winter.

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.
