Roxx Records is very excited to bring one of our very own personal favorite recordings back to life. ! We are extremely happy to bring you the complete recording history of one of the Bay area’s finest Christian metal bands of the late 80’s Soldier ! The music of Soldier has been a personal favorite of ours, and one we have wanted to release for many years now, and this year the bands full length release “Babylon” is celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2018! This album and band should have been WAY bigger in our humble opinion, Alas, like many very talented bands of that era (Malachia and Eternal Ryte come to mind) they somehow got lost in the shuffle or over looked by the major labels of the day pushing and promoting Christian metal.

We are very excited to bring you not just “Babylon,” but the bands entire recording catalog back to life on CD and vinyl for the very first time! “Babylon” was originally released on cassette tape only and 5000 of those were pressed back then! Before “Babylon” the band would also release another demo on cassette tape only entitled “Louder Than Hell” with only 1000 copies of this one being pressed, both are impossible to find these days. After those two releases the band would get to go in to the studio and work with acclaimed producers, John and Dino Elefante, where they would work on and record two tracks that would be released on the compilation “California Metal II.” This would mark what would be the last recordings the world would see from Soldier, until now!

“Listen close. There’s a war going on for your soul right now.” My response: “Dude, I’m all ears.” I soak up the sounds of war issuing from my headphones and prepare for the impending confrontation. Johnny’s opening riff takes centre stage, and it’s a goodie. A shell explodes and the drums carry me into the fray. Pretty exciting, huh? And that’s only the beginning!

Crushing The Deceiver are a thrash metal band from Clovis, California. They launch their debut on 4 May, and will join heavyweight metallers Deliverance at the Sacrivox Music Festival in July. If the album is anything to go by, it’s going to be a blistering show! I mean, check out “The Light Inside Me”. It’s like someone’s pulling back on a slingshot and letting go, the momentum carrying Grant ever forward: “You are the passion inside me, The motivation that drives me…” Grant’s growl compliments the overall sound, and on this track the band varies its pace between soulful unblack lament and soaring stomp.

The link to the battlefield is reestablished in “Guide the way to You”. Ryan’s bass pushes forward, while the guitar and vocal rhythms echo one another. While they are adept at delivering riffs and beats at speed, Crushing The Deceiver also experiments with tempo to great effect. The changing intensity keeps me focused on the message.

Having just finished recording their seventh studio album entitled “Wing Seven” the band is ready to get back at it, playing shows, maybe hooking up as part of a tour and just play their music to the people wherever they can go. Continue reading »
