Here is some new music for you...

As you know (or maybe you don't) I have an online radio station. With that comes free music. Sometimes it is good and sometimes bad, yet sometimes it is very good!

Here are some artists I am playing or will be heard soon on iggyROCKS!

Blushing Well
This flesh I'm In

The first cut alone is worth the album. They sound a bit like Soundgarden meets Tool but less polished. Yet, even without the gloss of a high studio production Blushing Well stands on its own as a unique sound in Christian music. It is one I highly recommend.

Crime Scene Earth

Some of you might remember them from the eighties and nineties. They were best know for their darker presentation of the Bible. This has that Judas Priest feel and vocally Josh Kramer still seems in Metal form. It is petal to the metal from start to finish. The Judas in Me is one that I liked.

darkness and light

Brazil is bringing out the metal. Scelerata is bring the truth. They are hard hitting. Think Yngve Malmsteen meets Iron Maiden in high gear! Guitar playing on this effort is top notch and the drums are merciless.

Living on the edge

This is one of my favorite listens right now. Rocking metal reminiscent of the nineties yet fresh. I believe this band is from Sweden and it is restoring metal to it former glory. The guitar playing is melodic and vocals are powerful.

And now for the softer side.

Carrie Newcomer
The Geography of Light

This is not just great music but great story telling. Every song on this CD brings some great imagery. The sound is folksy but don't let that stop you from checking this CD out. She is writing from the emerging church viewpoint and there is a depth that one will explore deeper and deeper with each song.
