Stephen Christian of Anchor & Braille On New CD, Tension – As Long As Someone Will Listen, I’ll Always Push Out Albums!

Anchor & Braille, the side project of Anberlin vocalist Stephen Christian, will be releasing his fourth solo CD, Tension, on May 22nd via Tooth & Nail Records. This new studio release is inherently personal and a departure from the music he has come to be known for with Anberlin. Tension explores the more pop-driven side of his songwriting and was born out of a creative time during the recent Anberlin reunion in 2019.

Album Reviews

Alestorm – Curse of the Crystal Coconut Review

While I was initially a bit worried, Curse of the Crystal Coconuts has turned out to be yet another excellent Alestorm album. At this point, fans know what to expect, as this is yet another collection of insanely goofy, wildly entertaining pirate themed tracks, with a steady balance between power, folk and symphonic metal, as well as the occasional more epic sequences. Despite a couple weaker tracks, the album is amazing overall, with some of the band’s absolute best work to date, spread out fairly evenly throughout the album. Fans of the band are sure to love this, while anyone looking for fun pirate themed metal would be highly recommended to give this a listen, as it’s every bit as good as any other Alestorm album.

I genuinely didn’t know what to expect from the A Light Within front-man, i love that band loads so i had high expectations, but also an open mind, there’s a lot going on here and there are definitely songs that a creative, visually artistic mind could make something of.


SAVAGE MESSIAH – The Bitter Truth – Live in Tokyo – Video exceeds a quarter of a million views in less than a week.

Lead singer Dave says ‘The Bitter Truth’ a track from our latest record Demons recorded live at Kandamyoujin Hall in Tokyo . We have been very fortunate to be able to go to Japan every year for the last 3 years and to steadily see the band get more and more popular has been really rewarding to us .
