Rick’s Dove nominated CD, “Soul Lift,” is available for the first time ever on my web site – www.rickaltizer.com

The CD feature vocals by:
Johnny Cash
Russ Taff
Mike Roe (The 77’s)
John Ellis (Tree63)
Steve Mason (Jars of Clay)
Mark Stuart (Audio Adrenaline)
and others.

Included in the package are 8 unreleased songs from the sessions that have never been heard before.  There are some amazing surprises in these extras if you’re a Johnny Cash or Russ Taff fan…but that’s all I’ll say about that.

Go to www.rickaltizer.com to listen to samples and purchase.

Here are some reviews in case you’re interested in what nice things other people had to say about the record.

A multi-artist multi-faceted brilliant album.  Totally creative and incredibly unusual.  Soul Lift must rank as one of this year’s most original releases.  10 stars out of 10!
CrossRhythms Magazine, Mike Rimmer

Soul Lift should certainly be remembered as one of the most original and unusual worship albums of the year.  Defiantly daring and radical, Soul Lift is one of the most original-sounding releases of the year.
Robin Parrish, Christian Music, About.com

Exceedingly creative and satisfying. “A” rating

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.
