There Must Be Someone Out There

An Album By

Dead Words

Listen now

Out of the Dallas/Fort Worth area comes punk band Dead Words, striking all the right chords and punchy snares needed to make this record a hit. With hints of punk icons before them, ranging from Suicidal Tendencies to Civil War Rust, you could also sprinkle some of the band Thursday over a few of the songs. “Atlas Shrugged” is the standout song of the album, while other songs, like “Vs. the World” and “Holy Rage” help show the band’s range.

Faster tempos and choruses are sure to have half the crowd circling, with the other half singing along to the fast-paced, blood-pumping songs; after all, the album is only a little over 25 minutes. Don’t let the length of the album deter you. This is a great album to own for fans of punk music.


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.
