Metal Missionaries brings you into conversations with some of Christian music’s most extreme artists, so you can get a firsthand feel for the scene and answer some questions or doubts for yourself.

In tracks such as ‘Hell’, ‘Ignominy’, and ‘Hate’, the lyrics reflect some of the hardest times we have faced in our lives and where the Holy spirit was in those times, something that we felt very lead to share with our audience. This, of course, would be a hard point to make without a crushing production, and we have to say that Nick Morris (As They Sleep) and Josh Dillon of Elaire Studios did a fantastic job at doing just that.”
