Wonrowe Vision - 2 Headed Monster One of Steve Rowe’s earlier incarnations was the classic metal band, Lightforce (1986 to 1989). Then he formed Mortification and unleashed the first christian death metal album ‘Mortification’ in 1991. Their 1992 follow-up ‘Scrolls Of The Megilloth’ was a masterpiece of fast death metal with some doom influences. He recently released the final Mort album ‘Realm of the Skelataur’ (2015).

However, Steve still hankered back to those earlier days. His lifelong interest in and passion for 70′s classic heavy rock and early 80′s classic gospel rock led him to form Wonrowe Vision. It is influenced by the 70′s mainstream bands such as Status Quo, Deep Purple and Motorhead combined with the 80′s gospel, hard rock sounds of Resurrection Band, Jerusalem, Barnabas and 100% Proof. One of the biggest differences lies in Steve’s clean, bellowing vocals.

graveforsaken_Vaughun“Hi, this is Vaughan from Grave Forsaken. The issue of music downloading is a complex one. A massive number of people download music without paying for it, so you can make yourself quite unpopular if you speak out against it. I’ve heard all the justifications and reasons people give, but to me it boils down to one simple fact – it is illegal so, therefore, we shouldn’t do it. As far as I can see, if something is against the law of the land, as Christians we are morally obligated to not do it. This is problematic for us music lovers, as it is so easy to obtain material with no direct consequences.

I will never point the finger at a friend or colleague who downloads, as I realise it can be a complex moral minefield. What I try to do is set an example and support legally purchased music. Being in a band, I’m asked about this on a weekly basis. People ask me if downloading impacts our album sales, so it’s obviously on their minds. Continue reading »

Steve Rowe [Mortification / Rowe Productions] issued the following message:   I just sat down and listened to the Master Disc of AntiDemon‘s new album Apocalypse Now this afternoon and it is KILLER!! Kind of Morbid Angel meets Suffocation mixed with the Trademark AntiDemon sound musically! Easily the band’s BEST Album to date both in Song Writing and Production! It is so AWESOME to have THE WORLD’S BEST CHRISTIAN DEATH METAL BAND coming out on Rowe Productions!!

With AntiDemon Touring the past 6 weeks it has been difficult for the band to get the Master Discs to me until now. However, Pre-Orders are now welcome! Infiltration Squad Members can order directly from me for $16 AUD (Australian Dollars) each POST PAID!! Continue reading »
