Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s Gideon are a no holds barred, in-your-face hardcore band with an already impressive repertoire.  Well-placed gang vocals and a powerful front man set Gideon apart from many of their peers, while the band as a whole, whose members have been playing together only since 2008, come off sounding like seasoned pros.  Their Facedown debut Costs (engineered by Brian Hood) will be released on March 1, 2011 and will be supported by non stop touring including Facedown Fest in Pomona, CA (April) and Cornerstone Festival in Bushnell, IL (July).  See a list of current tour dates below.

Gideon have just released a song from their upcoming album on Facebook.  You can hear False Profits here: http://www.facebook.com/GideonAL
Costs will be available for pre order on January 19th at http://facedown.merchnow.com/

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.
