TTHOG incorporates grind, slam, tech, melodic and classic death metal into a ultra-heavy sound never lacking in brutality or originality.

The mission of this band is to spread a message of hope, redemption, strength, freedom, patriotism and ultimately salvation through Jesus Christ. Simply put, Taking The Head Of Goliath is death metal for life.

On Thursday February 9, 2017 the Christian Metal Community lost one of its most valuable players. Dale Huffman owner of Metal Pulse Radio succumbed to the cancer he had bravely been fighting the past couple of years. Dale was a family man, a great father, grandfather and husband to his wonderful family, as well as a great friend and supporter of many in the Christian Metal Community. Those friends and supporters truly showed their love of Dale when called upon for a very special tribute to him.

Roxx Records and Rottweiler Records are proud to present “Metal Pulse: A Tribute to Dale Huffman.” This special tribute project came together very easily when Bill and Scott from Roxx put out a quick call to all those that knew and loved Dale. We had an overwhelming response and we quickly had well over 50 artists and labels wanting to contribute tracks to this effort. When we quickly realized we could not fit this all on one CD, Rottweiler Records owner Shawn Browning quickly stepped in to provide support and we now are ready to present you with one of the LARGEST Christian Metal compilations in history, a true tribute and testimony to the great man Dale was.

TAKING THE HEAD OF GOLIATH is our last of three announcements of new artists to join The Pack at Rottweiler Records!

Please welcome them, hit all their social media sites, and download their absolutely, no overdubbed live e.p. for FREE at the link below!

From the most innocuous and innocent origins come the greatest stories—tales of the underdog conquering the oppressive forces that be, turning the tides against all odds to vanquish evil and emerge victorious, a stalwart and obelisk to the forces of good. Despite their punishing and intense style of bone-breaking, skin-shredding brutal death metal, the Twin Cities-based, Taking The Head Of Goliath are such a story. Beginning from the ashes of previous projects with the goal of creating a Christ-centered, more-crushing-than-a-ten-ton-bulldozer amalgam of brutal death metal with all the genre’s various technical, grinding and thrashy subgenres to completely obliterate the sensibilities of their listeners. Taking The Head Of Goliath—while on one hand, are precisely as violent and intimidating as their name might imply—are a force for life; a driving and dedicated display of a love for all things death metal that simply demands to be heard.

Rottweiler Records has checked in with the following announcement

Listen up, Dawgs. . . It is with great pleasure and anticipation that we are FINALLY able to introduce and announce our next band.

Please, EVERYONE welcome O WRETCHED MAN to The Pack!!

Many men and women find themselves asking—themselves, the world, God above, anyone who will listen—who can redeem the ravaged state of disrepair that plagues our society and global community today? This question, in its most rudimentary form, is little more than a modern adaptation of the age-old adage: O Wretched man that I am, who can save me from this body of death? While the question itself is humbling and eye-opening all at once, the answer can be just as staggering. And it is from the dialectic nature of the depressive and dreary question and the potentially enlightening—or damning—answer that the metallic ensemble O Wretched Man derive both their namesake and their dynamic of dismal darkness and ethereal, orchestral aural illumination.

Thirteen, this number conjures up several images depending on who is observing it. Every thirteen minutes, one American will take their own life. Every thirteen minutes, someone in America dies in a motor vehicle accident. Every thirteen minutes, a woman dies of breast cancer and thirteen minutes is the time the warning sirens give before a tornado hits.

Insert Thirteen Minutes, the metal band from Tulsa, OK taking on the significance of thirteen in the spiritual realm. Thirteen Minutes is the time it takes every day to be spiritually fit. Thirteen is the number of great blessing. The number thirteen is the number of new life. God’s number (seven) together with man’s number (six) = Thirteen. The number thirteen is the difference of what man can do and what God can do. Continue reading »
