Letter To the Exiles release us a short EP of what is to come. With an original track, and a cover and an acoustic track. The albums title says it all. The band might be working on something new for the future, but they wanted to let their fans and everyone one else know that they are still hungry and still ready to move. A cover of the Foo Fighters The Best of You says many things about the band. They are not afraid to take chances, they have strong influences, and the band is learning and adapting to what could be a new side of the band. What that side may be, it is unclear. If Dave Grohl is influencing the band, then we can only assume it will be great.
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.Full Feature More from Guardian
