With our gears moving at break-neck speeds, we at Static Age Records are proud to officially announce the addition of three new bands to our roster! Sleep Serapis Sleep; Artifex Pereo; and The Gun Show.

The Gun Show: Christian metallers The Gun Show, both technically proficient and brutally heavy, are a touring workhorse.  Indie Vision Music said “they [The Gun Show] open up on you with guns a blazing.”  Playing energetic and fun songs, packed with breakdowns, sing alongs, bang your head riffs, and melodies, this Ohio outfit seems to know what people want to hear.  They will be working on an upcoming release in the next few months and will be playing Cornerstone 2010.  You can hear material from the band on their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/xthegunshowx

In additional news, we have added a new member to the staff of Static Age, TJ Sego.  Formerly the drummer of Gwen Stacy, TJ will be serving a dual purpose at Static Age handling booking and acting as an in-house production consultant to our bands.  TJ spoke about joining the Static Age family, “The direction that Static Age are going, as well as the attitude they take regarding their bands and partners, is one that I would be a fool to not be a part of. I find the growing band roster to be very strong with big potential, and I am very much looking forward to contributing to their success creatively and professionally.”

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.
