Crust punk outfit Saul of Tarsus is premiering the song “No Treasure” from their most recent album, Road to Damascus, today with HM Magazine. The Riverside, CA-based band, who also claim elements of grindcore and thrash in their musical influence, dropped the album on Nov. 20. We spoke with Anthony Marquez, guitarist for the band, about the song:

“The song is based on Matthew 6:19, James 4:14, the Book of Ecclesiastes, and a little bit of the Book of Proverbs. The message of the song is to focus on Jesus as opposed to being distracted by the material world. It is also a warning against selfishness, greed, idolatry, covetousness and the attacks of the enemy. Each chorus is slightly different, the first two describing the perishing world and the third pointing to Christ as the solution.”

If you dig the track, can pick up the new album from SkyBurnsBlack Records. The band, which formed in 2011, will be playing next on Jan. 16 at the House of Rebellion.

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.
