JOHN COFFEY says:

New lead singer, new inspiration, new adventures

As you probably all know last May, our leadsinger Art, decided to leave JOHN COFFEY. Many people applied for the job an it took us quite some time to find the right person. But now, world, we can finally say, we’ve got him! We’re proud to present you, the new guy on vocal duties!

He goes by the name of David Achter de Molen. Born and raised on the meadows of Holland, he became a man on the plains of Kentucky, USA. David spent most of his time screaming in hardcore/screamo bands and he’s got that good old rock n’ roll screamin’. From now on David will be joining us on tour and in the studio.

Check out the first footage of David and us working on new material.

So what are we up to right now?

Alfred and Carsten will take the winter off to explore South East Asia and Indonesia and see what rock n roll is all about on the other side of the world. They’ll stay in touch through our Facebook page, so you can see what they’re up to.

In the meantime the rest of the guys started writing our next record. The first demo recordings will take place by the end of this month. So be on the lookout for some nice video footage on our new website at www.johncoffey.nl

Meanwhile, if you haven’t downloaded our last record VANITY, you can still do that at our Bandcamp site.

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.
