Lovewar return after 25 year hiatus

Lovewar burst on to the Christian music scene in 1990 when they released a demo that caught the eyes and ears of famed producers John and Dino Elefante. That would lead the band to their first record deal on Pakaderm Records and the release of the now legendary album ‘Soak Your Brain’.

‘Soak Your Brain’ would be widely received as one of the best Christian rock albums of all time. The album was even named one of the top Christian rock albums of all time by Heaven’s Metal Magazine that placed it number 47 out of 100.

But alas, like many of the bands from that era that should have been huge, the music industry changed spitting out a lot of those very talented bands much like Lovewar. Lovewar would never go on to record a sophomore effort and the album and the band went off in to obscurity never to be heard from again, until now!

The end of 2018 saw the band reform and launch a very successful Kickstarter campaign to release their second album, 25 years later! The band got right back at it featuring all 3 original members and they picked up literally right where they left off. There were 11 songs written back then and ready to go that never saw the light of day that the band dusted off, polished up and recorded for this special project.

Roxx Records is very excited to be bringing you the brand new sophomore self-titled album from Lovewar! These tracks sound amazing and show the growth and progression of what just might have been all those years ago. Now the world will have a chance to hear what just might have been all those years ago.

April 13th on Record Store Day the album will be released digitally worldwide along with a very special limited edition CD pressing. You will want to get your hands on this one, which will prove to be one of the best Christian rock releases of 2019.

True Strength to release new album on Good Friday

truestrength LP cover

TRUE STRENGTH is honored to announce that their third full-length studio album, Sanguinary Vivification, will be released on April 19th, 2019 (Good Friday) in both CD and digital format through ROXX RECORDS! Fans of bands like Sacred Warrior, HammerFall, Warlord, Iron Maiden, Bloodgood, Bride, Journey, Megadeth, Queensrÿche, Deep Purple, Kamelot, Sabaton, Thin Lizzy and Rhapsody of Fire will absolutely love TRUE STRENGTH’s new release!

Sanguinary Vivification track listing:

1. “Immanuel”
2. “Man Of Sorrows”
3. “Silent Before The Shearers”
4. “His Blood Is On Us”
5. “The Punishment That Brought Us Peace”
6. “By His Wounds We Are Healed”
7. “A Grave Among The Rich And The Wicked”
8. “Arisen Is The Suffering Servant”
9. “Worthy Is The Lamb”

The album features the renowned American power metal vocalist, George Tsalikis of ZANDELLE in addition to songwriter, rhythm guitarist and bass guitarist Ryan “The Archangel” Darnell, lead guitarist Josh Cirbo and drummer Ryan Mey.

In late 2017, True Strength went into the studio to record their third album, “Sanguinary Vivification”. As with “Steel Evangelist” they elected to work with Robert Sands on the recording of the album. The album was mastered by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Productions. Darnell recorded the rhythm guitar, bass, acoustic guitar and piano in three sessions. Josh Cirbo finished the lead guitar tracks after a year into the project and Ryan Mey completed the drum parts and both were sent to Sands to be added to the tracks. After being dissatisfied with his vocal performance on “Steel Evangelist”, Darnell took a more patient approach and decided to hire a long-term vocalist for True Strength. During a single year, he went through over six different vocalists, with scheduling issues being the main reason for them being unable to perform on the album. Finally, Darnell’s friend and former True Strength drummer Chris Clark was able to get him in touch with Zandelle’s vocalist, George Tsalikis who Darnell was a big fan of since the late-90’s, early-2000’s. Immediately, Darnell hired Tsalikis and he completed the vocals for Sanguinary Vivification in January 2019.

The album is the first theme album that True Strength has attempted. Each song seeks to show the parallel between the “Prophecy of the Suffering Servant” in the Book of Isaiah, and the life and the passion of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and how He and He alone fulfilled the prophecy written nearly 700 years before His birth. The lyrics for each song derive from actual scripture in the Books of Isaiah, the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as the Book of Revelation!

BONUS: All copies of the “Sanguinary Vivification” CD will come with a Limited Edition “True Strength Psalm 118:14 – Ryan “The Archangel” Darnell” Signature Custom Guitar Pick by Steve Clayton USA Guitar Picks!

*All digital sales of the “Sanguinary Vivification” album will be donated in the band’s name to the International Christian Concern (https://www.persecution.org/), a charity that assists persecuted Christians and their families around the world.

*True Strength and Roxx Records are not associated with the International Christian Concern or their partners. All donations are given to the ICC without solicitation, sponsorship or direct knowledge of the band (True Strength). All album proceeds are directly donated in the name of the band (True Strength) to the ICC without their knowledge.
