The Saving One

An Album By

Starfield

Even with the nominations, awards and radio hits, Starfield still seem as an under-the-radar act. Perhaps that’s not the case for some fans, but mostly the Neufeld brothers continue to craft worship anthems with electric guitars and crashing drums with the best of them only to find others receiving more acclaim and press. Nevertheless, that doesn’t stop them from offering more of the same on The Saving One. The title track sounds a bit familiar and generally the guys deliver a more original turn on their lead single. The same could be said for a tune like “Declaration of Dependence,” which even in its title is trying a bit too hard. Still, the piano of “Rediscover You” and the softer side of “Absolutely” are worth the price of admission. If anything, this album places itself nicely in the discography, even if it’s not the best of the bunch or a great leap forward.  [sparrow] Matt Conner

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.
