Midwestern metalcore band Miss May I have premiered the song ‘Free Fall’ from their approaching new album “Curse Of Existence“. A September 02nd release date currently stands for that record via SharpTone.

Speaking of the lyrical inspiration for the song, vocalist Levi Benton offered:

“This song ‘Free Fall‘ is our open invitation to anyone who wants to take that leap they never had the courage to take. When you reach the edge of a journey you have struggled to travel through and you back out before the final step, this is your chance to take that leap off the edge and see where the journey takes you. I know the popular term for this is ‘imposter syndrome’ and for anyone who has felt the relief of pushing through, this song is your anthem.”

The group will mount the following headlining tour with Currents, Kingdom Of Giants and LANDMVRKS in support of that effort:

Not Of This World to release debut album featuring members of Bride and guests from Dream Theater

Roxx Records is ready to unveil the next Dale Thompson fronted rock n roll project with the world, Not Of This World, and it’s a killer new project with some very well known guest appearances.

Not Of This World is a project featuring music written and performed by Clay Ashbrook, vocals and lyrics by Dale Thompson of Bride with a guest appearance on several tracks by Derek Sherinian of Dream Theater and Sons of Apollo on keyboards and organs.

This project’s genesis is in Clay Ashbrook’s living room, where he composed and recorded all the music. Dale Thompson would then take the music and craft lyrics and melodies that fit perfectly within each song. This process started with 2 or 3 songs which expanded to a full albums worth over the last year and a half. This album cannot be defined by any one genre. You will find metal, rock, alternative, acoustic songs and ballads on this album. We are releasing this project in the hopes that people will enjoy the music and find something in the Christ-centered message of the lyrics that speaks to them in some way.

Aexylum – “The Fifth Season”

Aexylium pull out all the stops in their latest release filled with heavy riffs, pounding rhythms, beautiful and guttural vocals, traditional instruments, epic choirs and a majestic, epic feel to the songs on The Fifth Season.

The folk metal band Aexylium hails from Varese, Italy and dates back to 2014. From the early days of the band they have played many well-known festivals across Europe and were even chosen as finalists in the European Celtic Contest. During these festivals, the band has shared the stages with the likes of Elvenking, Wind Rose, Nervosa, Furor Gallico, Temperance and more. The band’s first self-produced ep, The Blind Crow, was released in 2016 and the first full length from the band, Tales from this Land, was released in 2018, which was well received by the listening public. As a further honor, in 2020 the band was chosen by the city of Milan to perform at the Castello Sforzesco. The Fifth Season was recorded at Twilight Studio by Davide Tavecchia and refers to a potential future where humans have depleted earth’s resources causing a neat total extinction, with lyrics inspired by Norse Mythology.

As one might expect from a folk metal album, The Fifth Season starts out with a bit of a prelude in the opening of “The Bridge” and then launches full on into a heavy fast guitar riff punctuated by pounding drums. Guttural vocals are the first thing to greet the listener as the song progresses and the traditional instruments are layered in perfectly to accent the guitars and drums and lend an epic feel to the song. Granted the guttural vocals may not be for everyone and I much prefer the more beautiful, transcendent female vocals elsewhere on the album but I get why they are here. The choir is expertly inserted and the variety of backing instruments really bring the song to life. The band has previously covered the Game of Thrones theme song and one can almost hear something similar here in the music.

Roxx Records is at it again, this year we have been working had to locate and find the many long lost Christian Metal ‘Priests of the Underground’ so to speak. And we found a gem in the band TELESTAI.

Telestai was a four-piece heavy metal band of which all the members had (and still have) an active relationship with Jesus. All the members of TELESTAI received Jesus during the 1980’s at different times, in different places. The focus of their ministry was to play amazing metal music and reach the masses to tell them about Jesus, and they did it well!

The band would record only one demo in their time and play a lot of high profile rock shows with many mainstream artists, including Holy Soldier, Barren Cross, Sacred Warrior, Trytan and many more. Luckily they also captured an amazing live show that featured several songs that have never been released before. And we are happy to be restoring this amazing music and sharing the work and ministry of TELESTAI!
