    Bonfire - Legends

    Going against the majority here, but I liked that. Thought they did a nice job with it. It probably helps that my 9 year-old daughter, who names the original as one of her favorite songs, has declared Bonfire's version to be "totally hard rockin' awesome."

    Disturbed - Are You Ready

    Not the greatest song they've ever done, but a good'un nonetheless. It sounds like Disturbed, which is good enough for me. If it's more polished and/or melodic, it's not by much. In a world full of modern hard rock/metal sound-alikes, these guys have always sported a distinct style that has resonated.

    Bride - working on new CD

    Christian headbangers should spend more energy protesting crap like this instead of moaning about the title of Stryper's latest album.

    Bride - working on new CD

    John the Baptist was decapitated, right? That seems appropriate, 'cause I think I would rather chop my head off than listen to that abomination again.

    Issa - Run With The Pack

    Well, if Issa was in the shower with me while I was singing, I'd probably destroy her too...

    Judas Priest - Firepower

    The other two songs didn't do much for me, but this one is pretty cool. My waning interest in this album just re-spiked.

    Stryper - God Damn Evil

    Some of the fans on Facebook are calling this a grower, and I can sort of see that, but I doubt there's a single Stryper fan out there who was hoping this would be what the first single sounded like. Personally, I don't hate it ... but it damn well better not be the best song on the album.

    Stryper - God Damn Evil

    They have an album called "To Hell With the Devil." They have a song called "Rock the Hell Out of You." By now, you would think the "fans" would have figured out that this band likes to engage in what I shall call "Christian swearing." My favorite comments are the ones begging the band to put a comma after "God" so that the title won't be blasphemous. Who knew holy commas were a thing?

    Bride - working on new CD

    There's an easy joke here about how you didn't insult somebody's mother, you insulted somebody's bride, but I'm gonna let it go...

    Ya'll are vicious. Ya'll are also correct.

    Bride - working on new CD

    Let's hope it's better than their last bore-fest. "Snakes..." was/is a classic Christian hard rock album, but the band has never been able to duplicate its success, regardless of how many times they have promised to do so. There was a time when news of a new Bride album would get my metal chops salivating, but now I greet such news with a shoulder-shrug and a "Meh, whatever." That said, I'll always give 'em a chance. While their last album was pretty much unlistenable, the preceding few releases all had at least a few decent tracks.

    Great write up for a great, underrated album. The whole thing just flat-out rocks, but "Walking Evil" ... man, that track makes the cut every time I compile a Favorite Christian Metal Songs Playlist.

    The Letter Black

    Yep, I was all excited when I heard they were going heavier ... until I actually heard it. All sorts of crunch and screams and balls, but they left most of the hooks behind in the process.
