Well well well, look what just came in!! How cool are these? Turned out really nice! Since I was young and got my first KISS pick with Paul Stanley's signature on it, it was always a dream of mine to one day have my very own bands' name on a white pick as well. Waited for a long time for this!! Very excited how these turned out!! ☆Steve☆

From our Manager:

Rochelle McGowan:

A word of encouragement to all the "Christian Metal" bands out there...

We all know the fight against Christianity is growing. We see it every day in our Government, Schools, Social Media, Workplaces, Shopping Centers, in the TV shows and movies that we watch and now, our own churches.

But, have you thought about the spiritual assault being waged on Christian Metal music?

I, myself as a Christian, was one of those people who used to wage war against Christian Metal. Actually, all Metal music for the most part. I know... yet here I am writing this to you.

Let me explain...

As a child, I lived with my grandparents who for years were both a "Barbershopper" and "Sweet Adeline" respectively. I loved being a part of that.

I was raised on the 40's "Big band" music, and the 50's - 70's "Classic rock" music listening to "Wolfman Jack" weekly. In the 80's I listened to "Country" music, moving into more of the "Modern Rock" music in the 90's.

During this time, my grandmother was the church organist and Children's choir director. I sang with her in the church choir for years and watched her practice the organ every day

which fed my love of music.

Because of this though, I allowed the "Church Community" to make me believe that ALL "Metal" music was bad. So, I never gave it a chance, just like so many others out there.

It wasn't until I met Steve McGowan over 23 years ago that I was introduced to "Metal" music. Talk about a whole new world for me!

I've spent the past 18 years really focusing on the different genres of "Metal" and figuring out what I liked and disliked still believing that "Metal" music didn't belong in Christianity. Then... along came our "Christian Metal" band, Weapons of God, over 10 years ago now.

That's really when my view of "Metal" music in Christianity changed...

all because I gave our music and lyrics a chance.

The world's view says that "Christian Metal" music is evil because it doesn't "sound like" the old school church music or the contemporary music you hear. People automatically associate it with secular "Metal" music because it sounds the same, not even listening to the lyrics.

But, in reality, the music isn't the problem at all.

It's about having a right heart in this "Christian Metal" world.

It's about your stage presence that reflects your Christian beliefs and not the world's. It's about the connections you make with the broken hearted because of your hearts. It's about doing what God wants you to do, and writing songs that bring glory and honor to Him instead of the death and destruction in the world which is exactly what Satan himself

wants and receives on a daily basis.

What better way to beat the devil at his own game, than to use "Metal" music that he meant for evil, and turn it around for good to praise God with?

So, as a band manager and "Old Dog" with a changed heart, I want to encourage you to not give up when things look like they are falling apart. Don't give in to the world and

change your lyrics to fit in.

Be patient and pray about your shows and what God wants you to do. He will line it all up for you with people and things already in place you couldn't imagine. (I've seen it with our band.)

Love on people whether there are 10 or 500 people there.

Remember, some places just shouldn't be touched and if you ask God for His opportunities and be patient while you are creating new music, the right places will be provided.

Most of all...Don't be afraid! God has your back!

If your "Christian Metal" is all done for God's glory... it will be Great!!!

Thank you all for giving our dark, dying world a little more light! If my heart can change,

every heart can change!
