The extremely popular Christian site Jesus Freak Hideout has released it's first compilation album, and are giving it away for free. The album called, Songs We've Been Trying To Tell You About (And Others We Haven't) Volume One, is a compilation of mostly independent artists that they enjoy and think you need to hear. There are also some fairly well know bands on it such as Family Force 5, The O.C. Supertones, and Kids In The Way.

Most of the music is in the rock genre whether it be pop rock, hard rock, folk rock……. There is a handful of hip-hop/rap and electronic artists on it as well. If you are a metal fan there is not much for you here Fallstar's song Hunters I believe is the only song on here for you and it falls more in the hardcore category. I also noticed that the compilation is for the most part male dominated there are very few females represented on the album. Read the rest of this entry

My Maker And I – Hundredfold

My Maker And I is a Christian hardcore band from Shady Side, Maryland. They just released their album Hundredfold for free on their Bandcamp page. I would say they fit into the heavy worship genre as well. The last song on the album, Emmanuel, is the only song with clean lyrics that are backed by hardcore screams throughout. I have to say the clean vocals are good I would have liked to hear them mixed throughout more of the other songs. I really like the album though, a strong debut for the band to build on.

Hands Of The Martyr – The Frigid War

Hands Of The Martyr has released their first album since getting a new vocalist. The new album, The Frigid War, is available at their Bandcamp page and just as their first album Foul Tongue you get to name your own price for it. Their sound musically sounds the same but the new vocalist has a completely different style than the last one. I have very limited knowledge of hardcore music so the only band I know of to compare the vocals to is the band Integrity. So if you are into hardcore music with that style of vocals check out their new album.  Read the rest of this entry

Hands Of The Martyr – Foul Tongue

Hands Of The Martyr is a hardcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah. They started out first as just a worship project under the name Falls First Fire. The band has since changed their name and some of their line up. They released their full length album, Foul Tongue, in 2011. Even though they are not just a worship project anymore the music is still all about God for them.

This album falls nicely into the heavy worship category as well as hardcore/metalcore. The band has also released a single they did with Tommy Green (Thom Green) of xDEATHSTARx and Sleeping Giant fame called We Are The Hope, which can be found here at Amazon and We Are The Hope (Ft. Thom Green From Sleeping Giant) - Single - Hands of The Martyr. Read the rest of this entry
