KINGDOM POWER METAL
JESUS IS KING
News for January 2018
Welcome to a new year that will be filled with many new things that God will do in this world. There has been a lot of talk about revival in the Christian Metal world. There is a great need for God's men and women to return to the things He has called them to do (Ephesians 2:10). It has been three years since we first started working on this new CD. We have been obedient to Him to write and complete this work but it has not been an easy "just slap it together" project. But we are very excited about releasing what He has given us for His glory and for building up the Body of Christ. We are convinced that releasing it is all about God's timing.
Would you consider praying for us every day till it is released? To date, we have 7 songs completed and there are two more that need final vocal tracks. This Saturday, January 6, we are planning on doing vocals for our 8th song called "My Bride Beloved". It is a theatrical metal song where Jesus, the Bride and Satan sing back and forth in passionate intensity. Needless to say, all of us have had to bathe this in prayer. We value intercessors that take the spiritual impact of this new CD seriously.
Our goal is to do as much work as we can this Saturday. Then in two weeks, we will be working on the 9th and last song on the CD. More on that will be in an update which will be released sometime next week.
RELEASING THE SONGS - Lord willing, we plan on first releasing these new songs as digital downloads in February and then consider how we will work with the different labels who are interested in our work. Please pray for wisdom for us in this area. Thank you! - Tom Denlinger (lead vocals)
In September we finished laying down all our drum tracks in Chugach, Alaska. Our drummer, Bill Pagaran did an outstanding job and we are all very excited to hear the final product! Here is an quick clip from inside the control room during his recording session for you to check out.
Since that time our main engineer, mix down and mastering guru, (and guitarist for the project) Rod Feltman, is hard at work mixing in the new drum tracks. Rod is co-producing this new project with frontman, Tom Denlinger. Rod will be working on these songs over the next few weeks.
Many of you have asked if the band will ever play these songs live. Honestly, we don't have any current plans to do that. The nature of these songs are more of conducive to a more theatrical, epic, and larger venue performance. Because of the reality of being an older band who has not released anything in 12 years, we know that playing larger shows will probably not become a reality. We are happy just being able to release this new powerful music that God has clearly given us.
Please pray for God to work through all of us in the coming days. Because of the spiritual (warfare) nature of these lyrics, we would also appreciate your prayer for our protection against the enemy who seeks to sift us as wheat. We know that is his desire. But as Jesus said, "for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing in Me" (John 14:30).
Please be patient. This project comes from our hearts and we cannot release it until it the music captures the excellence of the message.
