Philadelphia were one of the premiere Christian rock bands in the 80’s releasing 2 classic and long out of print albums (Tell The Truth and Search & Destroy) before calling it a day. Then once again reappearing in 2016 to release a rerecorded version of their never released third album (Warlord)

Punk rock wasn’t always the domain of photogenic young things given to emotionalism. When “hardcore” was the adjective commonly used to modify “punk” in the 1980s, primal musical aggression and tempos verering toward the supersonic demanded equally forceful lyrical content delivered with commensurate conviction.

Entering the hardcore fray in mid-decade were The Lead. Nearly all of the co-ed Florida trio’s studio output is now collected in a compilation called Hardcore For Jesus. The four years of artistic evoltion it evidences is as revelatory as its evangelistic/testimonial fervor.

From their debut four-song 7-inch EP in ’85, The Lead distinguished itself, but not only by their Christianity. Having dual lead vocalist-songwriters in guitarist Julio Rey and bassist Nina Llopis set them apart, as did a vanguely English attack on such numbers as ‘It’s Thru You’ and anti-abortion ‘Better Off.’

Drummer Robbie Christie began contributing verses and vocals with the act’s longest release, ’86’s cassette-only Return Fire. A virtuosic tightness began to develop amid the lo-fi cacaphony. ‘Lead Us To Salvation’ evinced a power-boogie spawl, ‘Emergency’ and ‘The Law Of Love’ messed with club beats before the latter skidded into a hyper-frenzied 180 with ‘Throwaway.’ Llopis begins to sound all the more feminine on numbers such as ‘Take Him Home,’ and Rey maims blues influence on ‘No Religion.’ Continue reading »

Kicking off the new year right Roxx Records announces another new signing for 2019!

Classic Christian Rockers Fear Not have signed on with Roxx Records to release their brand new EP entitled “For The Wounded Heart”. This EP will showcase the first new recordings from Fear Not since the release of the bands one and only full length self-titled album in 1993, over 25 years ago. This year after celebrating the 25th anniversary with a beautifully done reissue of that debut album on both vinyl and limited edition CD, the Christian rock community was buzzing about Fear Not! That buzz caught the attention of the 4 original members, and the creative juices and chemistry of those 4 guys was so great it ultimately led them to writing and recording 5 brand new and amazing tunes.

Roxx Records is very excited to bring you another absolutely amazing release in 2019. Hailing from SC / NC, we bring you Ritual Servant !

Ritual Servant may be one of the boldest bands for God we have ever brought you. Bold and in your face Scriptural lyrics and one of the most beautiful album covers designed by Noel Puente from Granada, Spain. When we started to work on logos and titles for this cover, the band quickly stopped us and said they wanted this art to stand on its own, with no band logo on the front, exalting and proclaiming what they stand for as a bold statement to the Christian and secular community.

Front man Patrick Best said, ‘This album is NOT about us, it is about making a bold, exalted statement for Christ and giving God all the praise, honor and glory’ Continue reading »

Roxx Records is very excited to announce the first of several new releases coming your way in 2019. Starting off we are very excited to be bringing you the latest release from one of Christian metals most prolific singers, the one and only Dale Thompson, as we announce the signing of his latest project No Other God ( N.O.G for short )
 
N.O.G features not only the talents of Dale Thompson out front on vocals but also Nenel Lucena on lead guitar, Alexandre Aposan on drums and rounding out their sound on bass Raphael Dafras. With Dale hailing from New Zealand, the rest of these very talented musicians hail from the beautiful country of Brazil. Despite the distance between them, this talented bunch was able to come together and bring you this most excellent debut wall shaking, heart stopping, and super heavy metal shredder, quite possibly the hardest rocking album you have ever heard Dale take the helm for.
 
Check out the new track ‘Take It By Storm’ below and get ready to rock!
