An Album By

Glen Kaiser and Joe Filisko

Those of us who have missed Rez since their retirement from the business have consoled ourselves with the fact that frontman Glenn Kaiser usually has some kind of blues project going on—his famous electric jams with Darrell Mansfield and others, the GKB trio, his solo work—and still performs live, often nearby at the Cornerstone Festival, where he’s an annual staple of the event.

Since, sadly, Cornerstone is no more, it’s fitting that Kaiser’s performance last year was memorialized in CD and DVD format for posterity. Glenn plays acoustic blues, armed with his acoustic and famous cigar box guitars, accompanied on harmonica by Mr. Joe Filisko, whose prowess on the instrument is demonstrated on “Amazing Grace Train.” This serves nicely as a live version of the recent solo album Cardboard Box, where Glenn’s main focus was on the plight of the homeless with a couple blues standards thrown in. CD and DVD are sold separately and come in eco cardboard sleeves.

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.
