We're halfway through the year 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. Here are the most recent releases in the Christian rock and metal genres.
The Letter Black- "Born For This (feat. Trevor McNevan)"
"Born for This," the excellent second single from The Letter Black's upcoming self-titled album, is out now. Trevor McNevan, the lead vocalist from the Canadian rock band Thousand Foot Krutch, offers great vocal melodies, alongside lead singer Sarah Anthony. Following the first single, "Rise," the expectations have become high for the new album. But, I'm sure the new rock album won't disappoint. The Letter Black drops their self-titled album in August 2021.
Phinehas - "In the Night"
Christian metalcore legends Phinehas is getting ready for record number five: The Fire Itself. Every metalcore fan will find something great in "In the Night," the band's first single from their new album. In the song, the vocals are very aggressive, the shredding is energizing, and the lyrics are deep and impactful. Phinehas' new record, The Fire Itself, drops in August 2021.
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. Their new EP, Misery Season, calls out the awful effects of abuse in our lives. The EP's lyrics are vulnerable, honest, and hopeful.
