Fallstar presents “Saratoga Springs”, an exclusive track off their upcoming record Reconciler. Refiner. Igniter. The record drops on March 29th and will be available for free download courtesy ComeandLive.com!

In a recent interview vocalist Chris Ratzlaff had this to say about the track-
“I love Native American culture and last year I traveled down to Death Valley to study the Saratoga Springs culture. I wrote as someone from that culture experiencing God, and I often wonder if that group of people knew the God I know. This is my absolute favorite song on the record and I’m so stoked to play it on tour, it brings out the dance!”


LYRICS:

SARATOGA SPRINGS

So I press my ear to the ground. For when the Great Spirit speaks. I will move with the wind. What it took me to learn I cannot read the skies. What it took me to learn the smoke in my eyes was signals and signs. Where the willow trees sing out by the water’s edge. You were tending your garden in the sun. Whoa. We raise with colored crowns. He calls us from the ground. He gave us the dance, the movement the wings. He gave us a song to sing, to scream. In my heart’s a battle, it’s long and must be won. He gave us a song to sing, to scream. All other gods lie prostrate before you sobbing and professing their inadequacy. His name is Donner. His name is Blitzen. I will move. Magma recreate. May this earth be born again.

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.
