This album has NEVER and we repeat NEVER been released before in ANY format whatsoever! So you are hearing this song as a WORLD PREMIER as no one has EVER heard this album before! Check out this brand new track from Michael entitled ‘Lost At The Cross’ below.

Now check out the story behind this Long Lost and NEVER before released album in the words of Shane Freeman of Michael!

“Shortly after the release of ‘The Battle Rages On’ life happened for Michael. Drummer Dennis Raymond left the band to focus on his family and was replaced by former Stutz drummer Vaughn Zajicek. Shortly after, keyboardist Todd Waites was forced to leave as his job moved out of state. Finding a replacement seemed futile so the band decided to move forward as a power trio.

After quite a long hiatus, XL&DBD are back with The Beginning of Closure, their first album since their debut in 1993, keeping the same sound as they had back in the 90’s.

Early into The Beginning of Closure I found myself wondering if I’d entered a time warp taking me back to the early 90s’.  Everything about this album seems like it should be the follow up to their debut album Sodom and America, but that came out in 1993.  The general sound of the band is that of one that would have been popular in Christian bookstores in the early 90’s alongside, Pillar, Pax217, .rodlaver, East West, and other bands of that rap-rock-core sound.  While production is clean, it does lack a bit of punch that might have saved these tracks a bit and led them to sound a bit less dated.  The lyrics in “Go Away” are so over the top cheesy, one has to wonder if this is a parody of Christian metal in the late 80’s – early 90’s.

…”and all the way from your head to your toes, you’re looking like Bathsheba, but keep on your clothes…so please take your hands off my pecs…ain’t gonna be no sex”.
