facedownfest

We are excited to announce that Facedown Fest 2012 will take place on April 6 & 7 this year. We’re doing things a little differently this year, splitting the nights at two different venues, and holding a Strike First night and a Facedown night.

We’re also doing something special for ticket purchasers by creating some bundles to give you more bang for your buck. Tickets are available right now at www.facedownfest.com and feature bundles with a limited edition Facedown shirt and/or a cd of your choice. You get all that plus little-to-no ticketing fees, and free shipping for the cd and shirt bundles.

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.
