Hard rock fans may already be familiar with the name, Michael. Hailing from South Amherst, Ohio, Shane Freeman, Todd Waites, Mike Slone and Dennis Raymond released their debut album, “The Battle Rages On” in 1995. With the support of Roxx Records, this cassette-only release was mastered to CD in 2019. While work on “Michael II” began shortly after the release of “The Battle Rages On”, personal setbacks meant a sophomore release was in the balance – until earlier this year. On 29 May Roxx Records proudly released “Michael II”, a testament to the tenacity of its then two remaining band members, Shane Freeman (guitar, vocals) and Vaughn Zajicek (drums, programming).

When Michael started tracking this album, the power trio of Freeman, Zajicek and Slone (bass guitar) remained. With their focus more squarely on guitar-driven rock, they created such gems as “Lost At The Cross”, “You Need Some Faith” and “We Got A Prayer”. When Slone had to leave because of ill health, the two remaining members agreed to finish the album before going their separate ways.

In spite of a lackluster 2020 for our world in general, Roxx Records had made a conscience decision to keep the music coming throughout this year. In reality with the world in such a state we need some positivity in this world, as such, one way we have done this is to partner up with Dale Thompson and bring you quite a few new releases this year. We have already brought you 5 new releases featuring Dale out front giving us some most excellent new music. Roxx Records has already released two albums from The Thomas Thompson Earth Project, Swingle and Thompson Ordained, We Are Resolute and let’s not forget the tail end of 2019 when we delivered No Other God to the masses. Also over at Christian Metal Distro we have become the official distributor for the classic releases from Dabster Gentlemen , Haunted No More and The World Will Burn! And we are not done yet!

Dale Thompson has now officially been dubbed ‘The hardest workin’ man in Christian Metal’! The latest release featuring Dale Thompson out front is the brand new release from Dominus Meus entitled “DM1 Revocalized.” Dominus Meus is the killer new metal project from John Evans (Evans and Stokes) The title “DM1 Revocalized” is aptly titled as such because John had already completed the album, when he heard out in the Christian Metal community that Dale was offering his services as a gun for hire. John thought and prayed about it and decided it would be really cool to hear Dale put his vocals on this project, and the rest is history!

2020 may be a very bad year for live music, but it is a very good years for fans of Dale Thompson of Bride

Dale continues to crank out the music any way and every way possible. This time as a part of the hard rockin duo called ‘Swingle and Thompson Ordained’

Read just how Randdy Swingle got to work with Dale in his own words….

“I had always had a dream to record a Christian Rock Album someday. I had been recording songs for years now. I have been a fan of Bride for over 30 years now, even back then I had thought about how awesome it would be to do a song with Bride. I got to meet Dale and Troy back in 1994 at the Agape Festival. They were willing to talk and spend time with me and my paralized cousin because it was all about the ministry to them, and to be able to reach out to all for Christ. Not just performing,  but meeting and talking to people after their shows, true ministers they were.

Roxx Records is happy to announce our next release from US metal bands AltarFyre.

Altarfyre was formed in late 2018 by Dave Kruse and Aaron Whertley. Both members have roots in old school thrash metal, having cut their teeth on the metal of the 80’s. The name of the band came to Dave, as he had envisioned an album cover depicting an altar of fire befor the Lord, and simply changing the i in fire to a y. Altarfyre was established to create heavy music that both glorifies God, and gives hope to the listener.

The band’s goals and mission, are to use their talents to reach the lost for Christ through their music, and to be a staple in the Christian metal arena. The band consists of Aaron Whertley (guitars/drum programming), and Dave Kruse (vocals). Dave‘s past bands include Fighting Blind, and RIZIN. The guys are hard at work on their debut EP “Wings Of The Everlasting”, set to release in early 2021.

Until then check out the debut single ‘Son of Man’ streaming below.
