Summary:

After leaving their former label, the Dallas, Texas-based Dead Words has landed on their feet. There isn’t a lot of material on Hey Rockers, but the band’s punk heart bleeds through the quick jabs of the tracks. It reminds me of the first time I heard 1,039 Smoothed Out Slappy Hours, one of Green Day’s first albums. As history would show, it wasn’t nearly as good as Dookie, but it was an album Green Day had to make to get to Kerplunk! to get to Dookie. Hopefully, Dead Words has the same kickstart some of those other lucky punks have taken advantage of.

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.
