I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father but by me. ~Jesus

Hello everyone. I hope you have benefited in some way from Christian Bands You Should Know About and Underground Christian Bands. I have really worked hard to try to find—what I think—are some of the best Christian artists out there. But you may have noticed that there hasn't been a whole lot of new content for several months now. The reason is that I have gone into a new season in my life. God has opened up a great opportunity for me to go to college, and that has ultimately taken up any remaining space that I have available. Also, I am working on an album with my band Underground Railroad. So as you can imagine, I am very busy. Eventually, if God leads me in this direction again, I will put as much effort into it as I have in the past. Don't get me wrong. I am still doing it—only on an extremely part-time basis now. I just didn't want you to wonder, and think maybe these sites were going into the graveyard, as so many others have. In the meantime, keep the faith and love the Lord with your everything!

...a friend's testimony

I wanted to share an excellent Christian testimony of a friend who came out of drugs, fighting, gangs and had a near-death encounter.

Decyfer Down - Nothing More

I just got a sneak peek of the latest single from Decyfer Down's upcoming release, "The Other Side of Darkness" and I need to tell you, it begins with some heavy riffage. For me, I really liked the direction they took with Scarecrow and I feel like they are not only moving in the right direction, but are a solid band that should be on your radar. Look for the new track on a radio station near you.

Samuel Lane

I am loving me some Samuel Lane right now. Really reminds me of secular artist Ray Lamontagne, but better obviously. His lyrics are really loving towards the Lord.

Four Star Revival - Knights Of The Revival

Four Star Revival is a Hard Rock / Metal band based out of the Dayton, Ohio area. The singer has Layne Staley (Alice In Chains) similarities at times, but also has a real Power Metal aspect to him. The guitar playing is very decent. You have to have good guitar stuff going on in metal. That's just a prerequisite. Drumming and bass are also very, very good. I am impressed that these guys are making this kind of solid Christian music. 

Their overall sound has Hard Rock and Metal elements to it that definitely remind me of 80's/90's with some Black Sabbath nuances. After a little investigation, I found out that the singer was in a band with former members of metal giant Armored Saint. I think I may have even had something by them on cassette back in the day. Too long ago... Anyway, the guitarist was also in an 80's band called Warminister, which I never heard of, but I checked them out online and they were the real deal. They had the whole 80's getup going in their pictures, and if you had that, you were serious. You can also hear the 80's solo thing in Benny Bodine's (guitarist) playing. He rips through some flying guitar solos on their debut album called Knights Of The Revival. Knights Of The Revival is one of the better albums I have heard all year in 2014. As a Christian, I seriously recommend getting their album if you're looking for solid Hard Rock and Metal.

Loud Bird - New Album "Live Quietly"

Jared Shotwell, the man behind Loud Bird, has just released a new record called Live Quietly. To be honest, I rarely look forward to an artist's new release much more than his material. Why? It's different. It doesn't lend the same predictability that I hear too often lately. This album in particular draws the listener in to a very contemplative state of mind, which is good if you would like to ponder your life or just chill out.
