Hey guys!
So, as a kid I devoted countless hours of my life playing video games.
Nintendo games like “Little Nemo,” “Mega Man” and “Contra” – all have a special place in my heart. Which is why the idea of turning a few Sleeping At Last songs into 8-bit (Nintendo-style) music felt like such a fantastic idea!!

As homage to my childhood summers of video games and fun, I proudly present you with this FREE Summer Surprise EP entitled, “8-Bits http://noisetrade.com/sleepingatlast
” available now for a limited time on NoiseTrade http://noisetrade.com/sleepingatlast
!

My pals, Steven Padin and Mike Carroll from an insanely talented band called The Reign of Kindo <http://www.thereignofkindo.com/>  made this possible! They spent many hours over the past year and a half converting these songs note by note to make the most authentic 8-bit versions as possible. They did a truly fantastic job! So excited to finally release these little nostalgic beauts into the wild!

The “8-Bits http://noisetrade.com/sleepingatlast
” EP features 1 song from each of my records, magically transformed into retro Nintendo-style video game music:

1. Currents (from “Ghosts”)

2. Umbrellas (from “Keep No Score”)

3. Porcelain (from “Storyboards”)

4. Next To Me (from “Yearbook”)

(EP Includes the original recordings of each song too!)

Huge thanks to Steven and Mike! Please take a moment to check out The Reign of Kindo’s http://www.facebook.com/thereignofkindo

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.
