you were never aloneIf you have never listened to Emery, then you’ve missed out on some great music for the past 11 years. Their unique sound is influenced by a wide variety of genres such as post-hardcore, alternative rock, and -arguably- emo. Some feel that their debut album “The Weak’s End” is their best work, while others claim that they got better with every album. The band doesn’t specifically identify as a christian band, to avoid the stigma that comes with it. But all the members are openly christian, and the lyrics show this on a regular basis. Emery seeks to spread art and love, and has gained a lot of respect for this from both christian and secular audiences. After four years of hard work, including creating their own label, they released their newest album “You Were Never Alone”.

The first song “Rock, Pebble, Stone” begins pretty mellow. Vocal harmonies, and clean guitars in the background. The song will feel welcoming and familiar to any Emery fan, in a good way. The thing I’ve always liked about Emery is their ability to make softer songs, while their sound as a band remains relatively consistent. That is not an easy thing to achieve. The band matures with each album, but also seems to get more creative. Something else that stands out to me, is the bass guitar. It’s very audible, and doesn’t disappear into the background. That is a very positive thing in my book. It is a pretty upbeat song, and a very accesible start for their album. Continue reading »

Peter_Espevoll_II_by_KienBaoBadChristian recently conducted an interview with Peter Espevoll of the Norwegian metal band Extol. Peter talks with Matt, Toby and Joey about his metal band Extol, spending time in a Norwegian mental care facility with his family and why Extol took an unexplained hiatus, as well as mental health and its life changing effects on his world. “We live in this world and it’s full of shit. Rather than always praying for health or the perfect things, my focus has been more on asking God to be with me in the tough things.” The interview can be heard on BC‘s latest podcast.

Extol‘s long-awaited fifth album has been released on 21st of June 2013 in Norway, Germany and Austria and on 24th of June in Europe via Indie Recordings and on June 25 in North America via Facedown Records. Continue reading »

‘We have some awesome artists on the compilation including a selection of bands that submitted music to us this summer, new songs from BC artists like Emery and The Classic Crime, as well as artists on other labels like Wolves at the Gate, The Foxery, and ’68.
