Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra
FABLE
Available Today

Benjamin Dunn and the Animal Orchestra have released the much anticipated project – FABLE – today, August 21.

This project is filled with what Dunn’s fans have come to love: a musical collaboration of creative phrasings, eclectic instruments and songs that get stuck in your head for days.  FABLE, largely inspired by the fiction works of C.S. Lewis, pairs vivid imagery and fascinating characters with spiritual allegory to create a musical project unique, both sonically and lyrically.

Early reviews agree.

“Benjamin Dunn has penned some original and insightful songs which inspire imaginings of heaven and grace…It’s hard to find fault with FABLE.” – Indie Vision Music

“A perfect summer sounding record” – Tunes International

Recorded in Harrisburg, PA, FABLE, like albums in the past has a rotating cast of musicians involved.  On the album, the Animal Orchestra consists of Dunn (Lead Vocals, Synth, Guitars and Banjo), Nathan Horst (Guitars, Banjo, Background Vocals, and Synth), Joel Semke (Bass and Synth Bass) and Rusty Fuller (Drums and Glockenspiel).  The live show will have a variety of participants, depending on the show date and location.

This week, Dunn and his band are heading to Europe for a quick tour, before launching the FABLE Tour in the US in October.

Sept 5 – Bleskensgraaf, Netherlands

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.
