We are thankful we have been able to keep brining you some of the best Christian music being released today, and thankful for all the artists that work with us and allow us to help share their music and message to the world.

“Fleas Naughty Dog” has been a Rottweiler Records tradition since 2010 with the sole purpose of honoring God, celebrating life in Him, worldwide music scene unity regardless of musical style, and having a ton of fun in the process.

It’s with great joy and excitement that we present to you “Fleas Naughty Dog Vol 8”. As usual, some songs are quite serious and reverent, some songs are silly and fun, and some are just well. . let’s call them unique. In totality this eclectic group of Christian artists represents a small fraction of the creativity of God‘s people, in some small way mirroring His divine creativity.

Finland power proggers Ultimatium will be releasing their epic theme album “Virtuality” on Friday, November 27th via Rockshots Records.

Before it officially drops later this week, the band is sharing their latest video for their single ‘Vengeance’.

Ultimatium‘s mastermind Matti Pulkkinen explains the track:

“This is the opening song of our new prog power theme album “Virtuality”. The song features guest vocals from Emily Leone from Lost In Grey and our vocalist Tomi Viiltola along with drummer Matti Auerkallio who plays the role of the villain in the story. The song is fast with power metal themes and goes to more progressive stuff in the mid part. There’s also a blast beat for the first time in an Ultimatium track! Lyrics guide listeners to the story and give important clues of the things to come”

Packed with five amazing lead vocalists, Peter James Goodman (Conquest, ex-Virtuocity), Jukka Nummi (ex-Myon), Emily Leone, Tomi Viiltola (ex-Dreamtale, Perpetual Rage, Viilto) and Matti Auerkallio (Katra, Manzana, SoulFallen), “Virtuality” is a unique storyline about the virtual world, and the dangers of sharing everything in social media, along with up-tempo power metal songs combined with darker elements.
“Virtuality” is set to be released on November 27.

Adorned Graves is back with Being Towards a River, which sees the band continuing in their journey started with Out From the Depth of the Grave where they expertly crafted songs with elements of thrash, doom, and goth.

Adorned Graves first caught my attention in 2015 with the release of their ep The Hand of Death, and the title track that expertly blended elements of thrash and doom, sounding like a mix of Slayer and Black Sabbath.  In 2017 the band released their first full length, Out From the Depth of the Grave, which instantly surprised me as the band crafted songs far more complex than on the debut ep, which leaned heavily toward the thrash end of things.  The Kaiserslautern, Germany based band advertise their sound as one of Old School Thrash with a touch of Doom Metal  and that would be a fair description.  Similar to their last album which took on the story of Jonah, this one has a deeper overall concept to it as well.  In this case the band had planned an outright speed and thrash ep, but during the writing process, things took a different turn and the band looked toward the river as a symbol of life and time with the idea of taking the listener on a journey from a river’s beginnings to its end in a allegory of life’s journey.

Perhaps taking some cues from Metallica who I hear in many of their songs, “Swallet Hole” opens with clean guitar reminiscent of that in the opening of “One”.  Keyboards add atmosphere to this solemn track with spoken lyrics.  Later in the track layered guitar solos elevate the track and set up the listener for the storm that is about to begin.  Similar to their previous albums, production is clean and has a bit of an organic feel to it where all the instruments and vocals are clear and contribute to the overall sound and feel  of the tracks.
