I – New Bands
=========

As a reminder, we have taken on a whole new roster of bands in recent months! While this has been a whole lotta metal, for the rest of you please be assured we have some clean / melodic rock acts on the way. Please be sure to listen to and connect with:

Hail the Blessed Hour
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Hail-The-Blessed-hour/343386494275

Awake the Suffering
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Awake-The-Suffering/369146537738

Bring Them Low

A Wretched Betrayal

II – New Music
=========

Over the summer we released a very diverse rock and hip-hop album called the Positive Music Sampler. Eight tracks from eight artists, it’s really worth a listen:

Also just recently published is a promo single from Hail the Blessed Hour. Every download goes to help the band’s recording budget! Take a spin and if you want to show some love, take the 99 cents plunge and download “Apostle”:

III – Sneak Peek News
=============

In the next coming months, you will be seeing more band signings, more radio singles, and by early 2011 more releases from Raging Storm. Not to mention any names, but I can say we are looking at some mainstream rock, more melodic / old school metal, of course a few more extreme metal bands, and even some folk acts. Truly an exciting time to be watching what Raging Storm is doing!

IV – Phasing out of the “group” in favor of the “page”
================================

As we were testing the waters with facebook, it was unclear which was better for our music, a “group” or a “page” here on facebook. Well, to be honest the final answer might not be so clear! But there is for certain a whole lot more activity on the Raging Storm facebook page, and I want to invite any of you who haven’t yet to “like” us at the following link:

If for some reason you have a key idea why we really NEED to keep a group as well as a page, I am all ears! Until then, we will likely be phasing out the group by the end of the year.

Thanks for listening and God bless!

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
