We're halfway through the year of 2021 and some amazing new songs and records have been released. I hope the Christian Rock Recap has been helpful for you to find new releases to enjoy. There is much more to come and here are the most recent releases in the Christian Rock and Metal genres.
Phinehas - "In The Night"
Christian metalcore legends Phinehas is getting ready for record number five - The Fire Itself. Every fan of metalcore will find something great in this first single from Phinehas. The vocals are some of the most aggressive from the band ever, the shredding is energizing as always, and the lyrics are deep and impactful. Phinehas' new record, The Fire Itself, releases August 27.
As Lions and Lambs- Misery Season
An emerging band in the extreme music scene is As Lions and Lambs. They pair death metal and metalcore into a very heavy style of music while writing appropriately mature lyrics to pair it with. Misery Season calls out the awful effects of abuse in our lives. They are vulnerable, honest, and hopeful throughout the EP.
The Letter Black- "Born For This (feat. Trevor McNevan)"
The excellent second single from The Letter Black's upcoming, self-titled album is out now. "Born For This" is one of the best songs The Letter Black has written for various reasons. Additionally, Trevor McNevan from Thousand Foot Krutch offers great vocal melodies alongside Sarah Anthony (lead singer). Following the first single, "Rise," this sets expectations high for the new album and I'm sure it will be a fantastic rock album. The Letter Black will release August 6.
