Continuing our very busy release schedule for first quarter 2011, RSR is proud to announce two hardcore metal masterpieces.

Recorded earlier in 2010 but kept fairly quiet while waiting for the right producer, A Wretched Betrayal’s full length epic “Destroyer” is currently undergoing finishing touches at the acclaimed Sound Lair in Knoxville, TN.

Also from 2010, the independently released EP “Deceiver” from Bring Them Low has recently undergone a rigorous remastering under the executive production of Raging Storm. Set for a label re-release in 2011, this is an EP worth getting.

For a limited time both albums will not only be available at a reduced pre-order price, but also with FREE SHIPPING. If that is not enough to make you at least give these albums a listen, there are also FREE DOWNLOADS from each album available on Take a spin of the singles and grab a copy for yourself. If you like what you hear and want more, please support the band by ordering their albums online.

It's all digital now, but, along the way, Van Pelt stirred up quite a few waves, played some seriously heavy music, and made a few friends along the way. Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.

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.
