The Choir E-News Update

Dear friends,

Eleven more feathers are in the river. That is to say, our new album, Burning Like the Midnight Sun, has been recorded, mixed, mastered and delivered (along with the cover art) to that mysterious entity called “the manufacturer.” I’m told (and I believe!) it will be available to you, our devoted listeners, on June 28. It’s been 5 years since O How the Mighty Have Fallen. Thanks for waiting around the bend! (Admittedly, this “river” metaphor feels a bit contrived; but now that I’ve got no more lyrics to write… Well, it’s hard to dam the flow.)

Tim played the bass with unrivaled melodious fury. Buckeye Dan Michaels (from Akron Ohio) played lyricon and sax (best since Chase the Kangaroo if not EVER). Marc rendered his distinctive ambient, trippy-slidy guitar beauty. Derri’s vocals have rarely been more emotive – and his guitar work – magical! And as if it’s not outrageous enough that I’m offering my own rave review of our own album before it’s even “out”… I’ll risk going even further by asserting what will soon be undeniable – The drum tracks are smokin’!

Seriously, we’re just thrilled to “still be at it” after all these years. Thanks for riding the current with us. (Ah! Get a grip on that analogy compulsion, Steve!)

And thanks for listening.

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.
