SHINY TOY GUNS has unveiled “The Background::III” viaYouTube.com/ShinyToyGuns.  The video, which premiered yesterday onARTISTdirect, is a behind-the- scenes look of the Los Angeles electro-rock outfit’s upcoming album III due out October 22 (Five Seven Music). In the 7-minute clip, the band—Carah Faye (vocals), Chad Petree (vocals/guitar), Jeremy Dawson(keyboards/bass) and Mikey Martin (drums)—discuss their coming together as a musical unit and background of various songs on the album.  View it now at:http://youtu.be/100fIGJ0iAY.

In the clip, the group discusses album track “Fading Listening,” heralded byKCRW‘s Jason Bentley, calling the song a “game changer” for the band.   “It erased all previous notions of what the band was about,” he wrote on KCRW.org“The song is automatic and I’ve gotten a very strong response from our listeners when I play it.” Today (Friday, September 21), the “Fading Listening” (Epic Wave mix)from DJ/producer Treasure Fingers made its debut on RCRD LBL.   Wrote Emily Zemler, “So far, the new LP has been teased by the single ‘Fading Listening,’ which is remixed here by DJ/producer Treasure Fingers. This reworked version of the electro-pop number retains the original’s hooky pop feel while infusing it with eclectic beats and an alien-like vocal distortion. Perfect for the clubs.”

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.
