Stavesacre is back at it. The band, who last put out an album in 2009, has promised a sixth album, appropriately titled Stavesacre VI. The songs for the album are currently in the demo phase. In order to help fund the release of the album independently, they’re turning to crowdfunding. Packages include physical copies, vinyl, hoodies and shirts.

Ryan Dennee, Dirk Lemmenes, Jeff Bellew, Sam West and Mark Salomon last released music together in 2009 when they put out Against the Silence, a five-song EP they also released independently. Stavesacre’s biggest release was from 1999, Speakeasy, an album that peaked at No. 44 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.

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.
