Come&Live! is excited to announce the November 30th release of In Exile. This is the latest EP from The Frozen Ocean and will be available on comeandlive.com as a free download.
Connecticut-based singer and songwriter Dave Swanson is The Frozen Ocean.  He says that, “I wrote the new songs with more focus and direction and a clearer sense of what I wanted musically and lyrically. I feel like I’m still trying to find my unique voice as an artist. But with this record, I’m a big step closer to where I will be the rest of my musical career. I always hope to improve my ability as a songwriter, musician and engineer with every project and to inspire and intellectually stimulate others who enjoy the music.”
Because he is the only official member of the band, he’s able to choose musicians he truly admires for each recording process. This time around he enlisted the help of Matt Griener (August Burns Red) and Andy Nelson (Wrench in the Works). Lyrically, the majority of the songs are rather introspective and allow listeners to peek into Dave’s life. For example, “Phantoms,” explains the loss of his father-in-law and baby nephew and how he and his wife dealt with and are still processing such devastating losses. He sings about how people who rest their hopes and dreams in people and materialistic items are repeatedly let down in “Promised Land.”  He shares, “Though some of the lyrics come from dark and broken places, I want people to see hope in those circumstances. I believe very strongly that God is able to take everything in our lives and reconcile it into something beautiful.”
ABOUT The Frozen Ocean:
Formerly in bands such as Life In Your Way and Play Radio Play, Dave started The Frozen Ocean to satisfy a personal creative interest. Since then he released a self titled album in 2008, and now 2010’s In Exile. From Connecticut, he plays shows mainly in the New England area. For more information, logon to his Web site.

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.
