AsHellRetreats
After releasing their first full length album Revival with Strike First Records in mid 2010, the band has moved up to Facedown and is getting ready to record their new album Volition.  Vocalist Jackson Greene had this to say about the move:

We are more than excited to be moving to Facedown Records. We’ve appreciated this label for what it has done for its bands and we are more than grateful for getting that opportunity. We’ve been working so hard touring and promoting our record ‘Revival’ off of Strike First Records and we want to work even harder with writing our new Facedown Release titled ‘Volition,’ making it our most passionate material yet.

As Hell Retreats will be heading into the studio to record Volition with Brian Hood (A Plea For Purging, MyChildren MyBride) in January.  Look for Volition in Spring 2011.

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.
