Cedarville, OH-based post-hardcore band Wolves at the Gate is preparing to release their sophomore album, VxV, through Solid State on June 10, but today we have their debut song, “Relief,” to tide us over.

Frontman and guitarist Steve Cobucci says the song “is not just about relief for the physical things of life, but far more importantly is the relief that is found in the fact that God offers a freedom from the wages of our sin.”

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.
