I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home) has already received multiple 5-Star reviews, as the acclaim continues to roll in:

“What many are saying could result in a New Artist of the Year Dove Award for them, we’ll have to wait and see, but the debut project is fueling that discussion for sure…if you get a chance, make sure you catch one of their live performances, it’s incredible.” – NRTRadio.com

“From start to finish… The City Harmonic have put together a great album.” – IndieVisionMusic.com

“The creativity in communicating the gospel through words and music is impeccable and a major feat for Christian music…This album is sure to establish The City Harmonic as not just another band, but as a movement of new worship artists.” – JesusFreakHideout.com

The City Harmonic has a sound unlike any other in Christian music today. So much so, I hesitate to even call them a band, but rather musicians because the quality of the music is so powerful.” – NewReleaseTuesday.com

“The album is a sonic journey, an audio canvas of a story unfolding much like a painting being created where history, pain, reality, hopes, dreams and the promise of the afterlife intertwine with one destination…I would recommend this album highly to anyone…” – AllAboutWorship.com

“While it may only be their debut album, The City Harmonic has created something that seasoned groups strive to do and rarely accomplish. It truly is an impressive album that glorifies God and keeps us listening for more.” – Breathecast.com

“…The City Harmonic’s I Have A Dream (It Feels Like Home) is just about as good as it gets and deserves proper attention.” – ChristianMusicZine.com

In less than a year, The City Harmonic went from being virtually unknown to international acclaim.  The band has gathered an impressive five nominations, including New Artist of the Year, for the Gospel Music Association Canada’s 33rd Annual Covenant Awards that will be held in Calgary, AB October 28.  Becoming the best-selling new artist of 2011 on the SoundScan Top Current digital singles sales chart, the band is not as interested in finding fans as they are looking for participants in the journey; “getting people in on the act—hearts pounding and feet moving,” The City Harmonic current tour dates follow:

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.
