Weapons of God announces their return, bringing a new set of Jesus Metal songs to fans with the release of their sophomore CD, The War Within US. The forthcoming CD is a follow-up to their 2019 debut CD, Weapons of God and is set to be released on September 3, 2021. The members are Steve McGowan and Leon Black once again on guitars and sharing the lead vocals.
Ed Girard is on bass guitar and Greg Alan on the drums.
Along with the album announcement, today also marks the release of the first single and video from the album, "War Within" premiering exclusively on Roxx Records and Weapons of God channels on YouTube.
Weapons of God are playing regionally and are frequently leading Worship at the First Heavy Metal Church of Christ in Dayton, Ohio and they will be playing at the Rock-N-The-River in Diamond City, Arkansas October 2, 2021 along with Bred 4 War, 3 Days Under,
Becoming Sons, Tetalastai, Bayou Believers and Rising Within.
Weapons of God recorded the The War Within US in Dayton, Ohio with Engineer, Ron Pease at the Refraze Recording Studio. Pease has worked with other bands in the past such as The Goo Goo Dolls, Nelson, and ex-guitarist from Megadeth, Jeff Young.
The War Within US is composed of ten new tracks including: a heavy, crushing, instrumental song to kick off the CD, “Deep Wordless Knowledge", the blistering, southern, dirty metal song, “Give 'Em Jesus", the chaotic, driven force of "Isolate", and the powerful but mellow song, "I Am with You". Completing the CD are two bonus track rerecordings from the debut CD Weapons of God:
"Anger" and "Weapons of God".
And, while each song varies in tone, the songs are all originals and circle back to one universal theme. The War Within US is about the war and destruction of the world, the war within our country and the war within our minds. Hence, the "US" is capitalized in the title for the United States and for each of US for the personal and daily fight against the spiritual warfare of evil and its temptations,
and the rise and outcome in the end for the need of our Savior.
Stay tuned as we get ready to launch pre orders in early August:
Incase you didn't know, we have a new premiere video coming out of our first single from our new album. What's the name of the new album? What's the cover gonna look like?
When will the new album be released?
Well... you will have to tune in this Tuesday and find out at Roxx Productions or right here on this page.
Blessings to you all and the love and support you have shown.
None of this would be possible without the Lord involved.
Understand, He's in command!! Thank you Jesus!!!

A Huge Thank You, to our band Manager, Rochelle McGowan for all the hard work you do on hooking us up on shows, during such a trying year of the plandemic 2020. Thank you, Paul Portell and The Holy Metal Underground page.
Thank you, to all that took the time and voted for us. We appreciate you so much!
Praying 2021 is a better year for live shows and events for all of us!!!!
Even during the plandemic and all the chaos in the world, 2020 turned out to be a very good year for us when it came to playing shows. There was only a total of three shows that were canceled due to Covid 19 but God was able to shine through these times of darkness!! A big thank you to Brian Smith and The First Heavy Metal Church of Christ for allowing us to come into your church, to worship and praise with your congregation in 2020. Here's hoping that 2021 is a much better year.

(A message from Greg Alan. He's getting ready to do some wonderful things. Many blessings to him.)
I will be kicking off a series of inspiring Testimonial Devotional interviews with my good friend, an amazing Brother in Christ, and an outstanding radio host of "The GRR"... Mr.Tony Marks on his radio show "Chefs Rock Block". The date and time will be announced on Tony's radio show as to when this series of inspiring testimonies will begin. I am honored to be the one to start this off for him and grateful to be given the opportunity to share my story of the unexpected and unbelievable journey that God has put me on and guided me through. Please tune in to hear how amazing our God truly is and what opportunities he will present to you if you just call upon him and believe in your heart that he will answer your call. I am definitely a great candidate for a Testimonial interview. Who knows... your experience with Gods greatness could be the testimony that someone else needs to hear and you could be a future guest on Tony's show. Stay tuned, stay focused, and stay the course God has put you on. God Bless Brothers like Tony Marks and Sisters like his supportive wife, as well as all of you who have the faith that God will deliver. Bless you all!!
