Detroit technical death metal act, As They Sleep, has teamed up with Noisecreep.com to premiere a brand new track from the band’s forthcoming Solid State Records debut, Dynasty, entitled “Bedlam at the Nile”.  The third track to be unleashed from Dynasty – a concept album about the rise and fall of empires throughout history – “Bedlam at the Nile” focuses on the plights that hindered and eventually fell ancient Egypt.  Head over to: http://www.noisecreep.com/2010/11/02/as-they-sleep-bedlam-at-the-nile-song-premiere/ to hear the new track today.

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.
