Continuing to fills its ranks with heavy spirit-filled bands, Raging Storm Records very proudly welcomes Beneath the Destruction to their family of artists. Self-described as “Christian metal made for moshing”, BTD has started to make a name for themselves in their home state of Ohio and beyond.

“We at Silent Witness Radio are excited about Beneath The Destruction being signed to Raging Storm Records” says local DJ Jeff Bradshaw. “We’ve been watching these young men grow both spiritually and musically for the last year, and we believe they’re going to be a great fit with the stable of great bands already on this label!”

Also casting her vote of support for BTD is Corpus Christi bassist, and Raging Storm Records intern Stephanie Roat. “Beneath the Destruction are some of the most real, down to earth, hilarious dudes I have ever met. They have been there for me through the worst time in my life. They are people I can truly call family. Their song titles may sound silly, but the lyrical content is no laughing matter. They are 100% dedicated to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, regardless of the circumstance at hand.”

Delivering the Gospel message through a combination of hard metal and comedy may seem to be an unlikely combination, but it is one that has worked for the band so far. Over the next six months, the band will be working hard to focus their message and it’s delivery method, while they prepare to record their label debut later this summer. “The work ethic and dedication of Beneath the Destruction embodies everything I look for in a new band” says label president Jason Scannell. “These guys are a great fit for us, without question. We truly look forward to working with them on their new album later on in the year.”


Beneath The Destruction, hailing from Cincinnati, OH, broke onto the local music scene late in 2011. Driven solely by their desire to spread God’s word and promote a positive message through their music, Beneath The Destruction has no intentions of slowing down.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
