B-Sides & Remixes

NEW: “LOVE & WAR: B-SIDES & REMIXES” EP

For months I’ve been secretly collaborating with a few artists, mixing in my studio, and working to bring you a little something new. Introducing, “Love & War: B-Sides & Remixes”! 4 of the songs are remixes of tracks previously heard on “Love & War & The Sea In Between“, and the other 4 previously unheard songs on the EP are additional content from last year’s 18-song epic. Listen to Aaron Strumpel, Kye Kye, and Mason Jar Music rework and re-imagine some familiar songs, while also hearing something new. You can download it for free!

A NEW AND IMPROVED JOSHGARRELS.COM

I’ve been working together with “Love & War & The Sea In Between” album designer Chris Tobias and his design company Stereotonic, to bring you this new website. I’m so excited about what Chris has done—not only with the site design, but also with the site’s streamlined functionality (now viewable on iPads and iPhones). Take a look around, for there’s a lot of new content to explore!

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.
