Doug Burr leaves Texas and hits the road for Midwest shows !  It’s not since last year when Doug went on tour with Son Volt that he has left his home state of Texas. He is on tour in support of his amazing new record O Ye Devastator.

Also of note is that Doug wrote the title track for the film Topeka, which has been winning too many film festival accolades to list.

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.
