Puckett seniorEarlier today we received an email from Ricky Puckett (In Darkest Dreams and former Broken Flesh). Ricky’s dad had a heart attack and the family could use a little help, read his message below:

Hello, My name is Ricky Puckett. I was formerly the vocalist of brutal death metal band, Broken Flesh, during the “Stripped, Stabbed, and Crucified” era of the band from 2010 to 2012. I was also the founder of Warclub Records and Warclub Radio (both of which are now defunct), and I am currently the vocalist of a project called In Darkest Dreams. My dad recently suffered a heart attack a couple weeks ago that was almost fatal. One of his arteries had 99% blockage and another artery was 100% blocked. The Dr’s were able to open up the one that was 99% blocked with a stent, but they said the damage to the one that was 100% blocked is too damaged to do anything about. He is currently not a candidate for bypass surgery. The Dr said that the extent of the damage to his arteries is too much that a bypass surgery wouldn’t do any good. Right now, we are down to just one option left on the table. He has to wear a Life Vest (which is basically an external defibrillator), but it’s not a permanent solution, because he has to wear it at all times and carry around a battery pack that’s hooked up to it at all times. He’s supposed to wear it for 3 months. After that, we’re hoping he can have an internal defibrillator put in him, but he has to go through the first 90 days with the life vest first. My parents don’t have any money. My dad is 78 years old and retired. My mom is 66 and works at Walmart, so they can’t afford the medical expenses resulting from his heart attack. Continue reading »

RED_.2015Grammy® nominated rock band Red reported the following:

‘You’ve been so amazing to us with your support, encouragement, prayer and stories! Over the past 9 years we have traveled all around the world bringing a message of hope and encouragement through music and we could not have done it without you! Thank you!’

‘Now we are asking for your support once again . We’ve logged nearly a million miles (763,000) on our bus over the past 5 years and being the machine that it is, it does break down on us from time to time and repairs are very expensive. One thing we hate the most is having to cancel shows due to breakdowns. Right now we have several issues that are going to become serious problems if we do not address them. Most of the problems are mechanical and there are a few cosmetic ones as well. We take pride in our ride and we want it to last us another 10 years. Would you please consider donating to help us get her fixed up and ready to roll?’ Continue reading »

MH smallGood news today from our friends at Metal Helm/Starve the Flesh Clothing, read more in the following message:

God Delivers a Printer for Metal Helm!!!!!!!
To those who have donated to the printer fund… Thank you!

To those who have lifted Metal Helm up in prayer to our Heavenly Father… Thank you!

To those who have sent encouraging words as we were overwhelmed in the desert… Thank you!

To those who believe that Metal Helm has purpose… Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! And Amen!

Last night we carried our new (used) printer into our printing room. The printer was not stored properly when it was last used and needs some replacement parts before it is ready to go but it should only take a week or two or three before it is printing some amazing shirts to help with the advancement of Jesus’ Mighty Kingdom in the metal world.

MH smallAfter months of consideration we (Metal Helm) have decided to run a fundraising campaign for a new printer since ours has now broken down. We would appreciate your prayers and consideration to help us financially so that we can continue to offer apparel for the extreme Christian metal fans worldwide. Below you can read a message from Jeremy Thurmond (Metal Helm/Starve The Flesh Clothing/Shigionoth Records), and do not forget to watch the video message.

‘Hello, my name is Jeremy Thurmond and I print apparel for extreme Christian metal bands that are sold through MetalHelm.com.’

‘In 2008 we started a new company called Starve The Flesh Clothing printing shirts with graphic images with Bible verse to explain on the back. We wanted to provide an alternative to the sometimes overly cheerful Christian tees that we were seeing.’

‘In 2011 we started printing almost exclusively for Underground Christian metal bands.’

‘In 2012 we started a new website (metalhelm.com) with Partner Jason Butz of Nokternal Hemizphear Records to combine the music store of Nokternal Hemizphear and the apparel sold through Starve The Flesh into a single new location.’ Continue reading »
