Last friday there was a lot of commotion within the Christian metal scene after Deliverance canceled their performance on the Rock Alive fest. (April 14) and also about the statement that Rock Alive released.

Now they have released the following jointly statement;

Dear Rock Alive & Deliverance Fans,

The last few days there’s a lot been written and said about the situation regarding Deliverance and the Rock Alive festival. Back and forth there have been harsh words, and things been done that shouldn’t been done. Both Rock Alive and Deliverance regret the way this has gone out of hand. Therefore the past days were spend by both sides to talk about this to try to understand and clear things up. This has led to the conclusion that along the way there have been a lot of misunderstandings. Things that were said during conversations were misinterpreted, and Rock Alive admits that where it concerns the airplane tickets they should have been much more decisive. Also does Rock Alive regret the fact that they have put too much focus on cancelations that happened in the past. This was unnecessary. We are glad to report that after these conversations both parties have come closer together again. Unfortunately hasn’t this resulted in Deliverance traveling to the Netherlands again.

In a series of drum cover videos that focus on Jim Chaffin influences growing up. Check out the fifth one below.

Dave Lombardo is #1 if I was doing this list in order of magnitude. He has the perfect blend of punk and metal as a player. His riffing on the snare and toms, fast feet? Ridiculous. How can you forget his 16th’s on the ride! Massive influence for video #5.

The video can be watched below.

Jim Chaffin is the original drummer for The Crucified and Fasedown and has played with many other acts. Such as Once Dead, The Blamed and Left Out. Currently Jim is playing drums Deliverance. Continue reading »

Deliverance – “The Subversive Kind”

Deliverance returns with a thrashy vengeance and not only their first new album in almost five years but also a reunion of Glenn Rogers and Jimmy P. Brown for the first time since their debut 1989 album.

Deliverance is a name well-known within the Christian metal community.  Dating back to 1985, the band has released 11 albums and been on a host of other compilations.  Many first became familiar with Deliverance with their 1990 release Weapons of Our Warfare with the title track gaining airplay on MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball , and the album selling over 100,000 copies, leading many to label it the Master of Puppets for Christian metal.  As often happens, lineups changes and by the fourth album in 1992, Stay of Execution, the band had their second guitarist change and Jimmy P.  Brown took the band in a more progressive direction, tired of being known as the Christian Metallica clones.  Changes in sound would continue with the band shifting to industrial for Assimilation in 2000 and then taking another hiatus before releasing As Above, So Below in 2007, which was followed by yet another hiatus until 2010.  In 2011, the band announced they would play a final show later that year, but as before, situations changed and the band reformed with George Ochoa on guitars, former drummer Jim Chaffin, and bassist Victor Macias to play Exodo Fest in Mexico with Grave Robber and Silent Planet.  2017 saw the re-release of their 1989 debut and Weapons of Our Warfare and the return of original guitarist Glenn Rodgers. Following a successful crowdfunding campaign, The Subversive Kind was recorded and features performances from Victor Macias (Tourniquet) on bass, Greg Minier on guitars and Jim Chaffin on drums.  The album was produced by Jimmy P. Brown and Jim Chaffin and was recorded and mixed at 3 Frogz Studios and Valhalla Studio with mastering by Rob Colwell at Bombworks Sound. Continue reading »
