fallstar video





(November 29th, 2011) Come and Live! artist FALLSTAR have released their first music video, filmed under downtown Portland with popular indie photographer Tim Newman. The track “Horse Without a Rider”, off their full length record Reconciler. Refiner. Igniter., is arguably the toughest track on the album, combining huge chants with thrashy vocals that perfectly compliment the mass amounts of energy exerted in the video and the band’s live show.

“Before we even chose a song we knew we wanted our first video to be an accurate depiction of our live show. We wanted people that had never seen us play to know how wild we are on stage, to see us spit, stomp, and move nonstop. Location was this boiler room in the heart of Portland and it matched the dirty filthy, humidity that follows this band wherever we play. It was perfect.”

Vocalist Chris Ratzlaff

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
