I AM ABOMINATION released their GOOD FIGHT MUSIC debut, To Our Forefathers, on May 11th, 2010, and are receiving astounding critical praise!

  • Shockhound.com describes the release as, “a complex, brutal and technically-proficient musical interplay that’s already earned the band a rabid underground cult following.”

  • Crave Magazine Online exclaims, “Blending progressive, metal and post-hardcore, the band have carved out a formidable niche for themselves, drawing fans from the three purist genres while maintaining a level of respect granted to a select few bands.”
  • Alternative Press Magazine’s online review of the album illustrates the music as, “teeming with melody and grace,” and, “some powerful shit; wild guitar licks weave in and out of the songs, wall-of-sound riffs lead into impressive breakdowns, and the vocals are polished.”

Taylor, Michigan’s I AM ABOMINATION are set to embark on their upcoming tour with Jamie’s Elsewhere and Memphis May Fire, beginning this Friday, May 21st! The band is also pleased to announce a summer run with Four Letter Lie, kicking off in La Crosse, WI on June 19th! All tour dates are available below.

Vocalist Phil Druyor is pumped about the two tours! “We’re extremely excited to appear on stage with Jamie’s Elsewhere, and we’re equally thrilled to have been invited out on the road with them! Also, we’ve wanted to tour with Memphis May Fire for a while, and we’re finally getting the chance!” Druyor is also energized to re-appear with past show-mates on I AM ABOMINATION’s second summer run. “We’ve played with Four Letter Lie before, and we love the dudes in that band! We’ve also toured with Lower Definition before they took their break, and we’re stoked that they’re back on their feet so we can tour with them again!”

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.
