Banshee are a legendary US Power Metal band formed by guitarist Terry Dunn, who remains the main man behind the band to this day. The band was formed in 1986 and only a few months after they released their “Cry In the Night” EP, which was picked up by Metal Blade Records in 1988 for release. They also included the song ‘We Want You’ on the Metal Massacre 9 compilation.

By the end of ’88 the band’s popularity had become such that they gained the attention of Atlantic Records. “Race Against Time” was released on Atlantic Records in 1988. Unfortunately the band was lumped in with the hair metal bands at the time, despite the fact that they had a much tougher, heavy metal sound. It wasn’t until 1992 that we were given new music from the band. They released their independent album “Take ‘Em By Storm”, with the band parting ways shortly after. Continue reading »

It was 1988 when the Christian Metal Music scene was about to change and finally expand in to the extreme metal genre.  Southern California thrashers Vengeance with support and direction from Pastor Bob Beeman were about to unleash their debut album “Human Sacrifice”in hopes to reach the lives of those who needed something like this. They accomplished this wholeheartedly and at the same time shocked the world with its intensity and bold message.

Thirty years later and Human Sacrifice continues to make an impact on people’s lives and in the metal community. As 2018 brings in the official 30th anniversary of Human Sacrifice we are prepared to bring you something very special and unique as we celebrate this monumental release. Continue reading »

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!
