I'm new here.

Good day!

I'll be honest upfront--I'm joining this forum to advertise my debut Christian hard rock metal album. Band name is Sevenoneself, album is "The Treasure of the Crucible". But more of that in a different post.

I grew up in Saskatchewan, Canada, where there's little-to-no music scene. In high school I survived off of HM magazine (and their sampler CD's), our local Christian bookstore (era of Intense, REX, and the beginnings of SolidState), and Cross Rhythms Music. I even ordered a few CD's from Rowe Productions; 2 were flagged at the border and by the time I paid duty I owned 2 VERY expensive Christian thrash albums!

I'm a multi-instrumentalist who has ended up playing in worship bands most of his life. I've been a part of very-small music projects, but nothing that has ever turned into anything. The fact that my wife and I had our first child when I was 22 could have something to do with that! I've been a youth pastor, associate pastor, and bible camp director.

I am not nearly as versed in the music world as most of you. I knew the music scene much better 25 years ago than now. But the last few years I've been checking out the top reviews at AngelicWarlord and have picked up some great new music.

My Favourite Christian Metal Bands / Albums (no particular order):

Tourniquet       - Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance
Skillet              - Unleashed
Vengeance       - Once Dead
Stryper            - Against the Law
Narnia             - From Darkness to Light
Tamplin            - Soul Survivor
Theocracy        - As the World Bleeds
Living Sacrifice - Nonexistent
Zao                 - The Splinter Shards...
The Crucified    - Pillars of Humanity

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm a fan of Deliverance - Weapons of our Warfare, Vengeance Rising (first 2 albums especially), Bloodgood (yup, first couple albums), Barren Cross - Atomic Arena, and Extol's Burial.

I've listened to Believer' and Veni Domine (like 20 years ago!) and they didn't resonate with me. Red Sea and Hero I've never heard of, so I'll be checking them out right now!

Yes. I think folks on this site know a whole lot about music, and I think it's very impressive.

Don't sell yourself short mate.

Your Main Site reviews are quite a substantial and helpful contribution.

I've been reading your reviews for as long as I've been here.
