The site is still under construction, so the only part that's open for business at the moment is the forums, and they look like they've only been active for a couple of weeks at most. Stop by and say "hi" if you're so inclined... I did. :P

A Barren Cross update from Blabbermouth!! SWEET news! They're working on new material!! :banger:

 

BARREN CROSS 'Is Officially 100% Back' - May 29, 2008

 

Vocalist Michael Drive (a.k.a. Mike Lee) of the Christian metal band BARREN CROSS has issued the following update (excerpts only):

 

"First and foremost; I am happy to announce: BARREN CROSS is officially, 100% BACK!

 

"There has been great healing done in the band, and we are being raised up to an entirely new level. We are back in form and are out there performing again!

 

"BARREN CROSS is not just 'talking' about it, but we have now, as of this last week, officially decided to record a brand new full-length album! Inspiration like never before has already begun; we have already started writing for it! As a writer and the lead singer since our inception in 1983, I can feel it already; this is going to be, by far, the best BARREN CROSS album ever put out. I would like to add that the table is now open for any offers from producers and studios who would like to be involved with us. This is going to be greater than anything we have ever done.

 

"It is very possible that I will be embarking on a two-month 'solo unplugged' tour of the United States either this fall or winter. Right now is a period of time when the venues have the opportunity to get an 'MD' show booked, and following this period, when there are enough venues booked, we will be contacting all of them to schedule the dates. This is where you come in: I'm asking you to contact whoever you know that might be interested in having me perform, whether it's your church, club, or other. If you want to help with this, please contact 'KJ' who is specifically handling this tour: northsouthbooking@cox.net.

 

"In case you don't know, in the modern rock genre, I have been doing solo albums and performances, both solo-unplugged, OR with a band: mostly in Europe in the recent years, as I was based in Paris, France; but also in the U.S., where I am now based, in Hollywood, CA; the land of my childhood.

 

"For those of you who don't know, on June 26, 2006, I had a very powerful encounter with God, and a radical transformation that followed. It's the most incredible thing that ever happened to me. If you would like to read about this, you can find it here."

Yea, Mike Lee has apparently gone thru a "transformation" of some sort and he's been living in Paris doing weird artsy rock kinda stuff for the past few years... he's now known as "Michael Drive" for whatever reason... he sounds like he's gone a little screwloose to me but I'm still looking forward to hearing some new B.C. stuff.

For some stupid reason, my work computer is preventing me from accessing the website, but no matter, I heard all I need to hear--Barren Cross is working on new material! Hopefully Mike Lee (Michael Drive) hasn't gone so "mad hatter" on us that he steers the band in an experimental direction. I want to hear a heavy, hard-hitting, oldschool (with modern production values) Barren Cross album! If they can maintain a state of control, they will once again rock for the King in the atomic arena and unapologetically rattle your cage... :)

The Barren Cross website I linked in my first post has seen absolutely no construction progress since I last posted about it... and the forum is now full of porn-related spam. Guess they ain't got nobody moderating that thing!! :angry:

 

However, this appears to be their new "official" web site:

 

http://barrencross.net/

 

No forum/message board at this one (at least not yet) but it is way more "finished" than the other site.

 

Or if you're MySpace inclined, you can say hi to BC there as well: http://www.myspace.com/barrencross

The spam troubles at the B.C. forum appear to have been resolved. Someone must've poked the moderator with a stick and woke him up.

I was just perusing the B.C. website to see if there were any updates on their current activities, and found this rather disturbing (to me at least) tidbit at the end of their "History" section:

 

"Barren Cross is back writting (sic) new material for a new album and is in the throws (sic) of consideration of re-recording Atomic Arena.

 

:yikes: No, NO, NO!!! They should NOT re-record ATOMIC ARENA!! That album is absolutely perfect the way it is, and is Top Ten of All Time for me! LEAVE IT ALONE!! BAD IDEA!! BAD BAD BAD!!!

 

(Phew) Thanks, I just had to get that off my chest...

Wrong Christian metal band that starts with "B." Oz is playing with Bloodgood, not Barren Cross. :lol:

    • Haha poor DLR. But Axl is one of the most under or over-rated singers depending what camp you are in. I think he is great.
    • Wow, this'd make me happy. 
    • didn't see this coming??? https://www.facebook.com/100044481307670/posts/443250043834369/  
    • Intrigued who you didn't know. Assume it's the couple I quickly looked up, lol. 1. Gronwall. Love both versions of HEAT but Gronwall undoubtedly has the stronger voice.  2. I went with Rexon, but only because we only have such a small sample size of Keyes? Is he still even in Crashdiet? As much as I love Crazy Lixx, I have to say, if I knew more about this Keyes fella I'd probably pick him because on voice alone, I wouldn't say I'm a Rexon fan. Thankfully his band is killer.  3. Whiteman. lol, I like the guy but not many he'd beat in this. Since I haven't heard Rhino Bucket for a few decades, for good reason, I had to give it to Whiteman. 4. Gotta go with Axl. Again, not a mad fan of his voice, but respect is due for his range. Never thought much of DLR at all, so Axl in this one easily.  5. Again, don't really like either of these guys' voice to be fair. Love Keel, but, gotta say, on a purely vocal level, is Ron Keel the worst vocalist in all of hard rock? Quite possibly (not including that ass licker from The Darkness, of course). Don't like Shortino, but admittedly when he sings the more melodic/commercial stuff he actually scrubs up pretty good (eg. Badd Boyz). So my pick is Shortino. 6. lol, two more voices I don't individually like. Swan sound so strained all the time, and I never quite loved Tramp's voice, despite being in a sensational band. I actually went with Swan in this instance.  7. Hetfield over Mustaine. Don't really care for either, but content with my pick.  8. Jizzy goes alright, was never a fan of McMaster. Much as I liked Dangerous Toys, his voice was pretty awful at time, to be fair.  9. Bach, easily. Love Steelheart and Mike, but Bach all the way. 10. Wow, surprised by this result so far. Prime Dokken is as good as it gets, but on a purely vocal level, definitely got to give this one to Meniketti, who's a pretty damn fine vocalist.  11. Easy one. Not a fan of Vescera, love Tempest (especially when he was still making good music). 12. Another pretty straightforward one. Blades is solid, but Gramm has an unmistakably fantastic voice.   
    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
    • Shit I was into that Duke Nukem shit,
    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.
