Gotee Records is pleased to announce the release of ZAPPIN (The Best Of), online and in stores September 14, 2010.  Spanning John Reuben’s career, the project (a digital and Christian retail exclusive) gives a snapshot of John’s last decade, spanning 6 albums and over 300,000 units sold.  ZAPPIN (The Best Of) will be an essential for old and new fans alike, containing 18 songs in one collection.

The project also includes a link in the packaging where fans can download all twelve of John’s acclaimed music videos.   Since his start as an ice cream vendor in his debut album’s “Do Not” video, Reuben has made his name over the years as not only a compelling musical artist, but as a creative visual artist.  Continuing with his male cheerleader in “Move”, and most recently, the traveling circus inspired “Town Folk” video, Reuben has developed a dozen iconic characters throughout his career.     Gotee felt no greatest hits collection could be complete without adding in these classic videos that respond so well to the music.

When asked about the project, Reuben quickly replied, “Really a decade already?! Well, alright then. Enjoy!”

Today, Gotee has launched a pre-order so fans can guarantee receiving the project on release day.   Fans are urged to visit gotee.com/store to pre-order.

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.
