Lineup Announced For Up From The Ashes Festival

Heaven's Metal Magazine will be sponsoring the two day "Up From The Ashes" Christian metal festival in celebration of their 25th anniversary. The festival is set to take place on August 28th and 29th at the Vault in Temecula California. More information on the festival can be found here. Heaven's Metal Magazine also checked in with the following statement about the fest and their 25th anniversary:

"The year was 1985, the Metal scene was alive and thriving, many magazines and fanzines were popping up to cover the latest and greatest in the metal scene. Magazines like Metal Edge and Spin would rise to the top of the rock and metal scenes in covering the hard rock and metal scene and excel at it for many years. But only one magazine would rise to the occasion of exclusively covering the Christian hard rock and metal scene. One magazine that 25 years later is still alive and thriving today, ‘in a print format’, which is a huge accomplishment, amidst the many ongoing changes in the ways we promote music to the world today!

"Join us for one special weekend as we celebrate 25 years of Heaven’s Metal Magazine! Two days of heavenly metal from artists that have in the past, and still do today, grace the pages of Heaven’s Metal magazine! But wait, not only will we be celebrating 25 years of Heaven’s Metal magazine, we will also be celebrating several seminal anniversaries from some of the key artists that helped shape the magazine, many of which still continue to grace the pages of the magazine today!

"Featuring performances from Deliverance celebrating the bands 25th Anniversary, Bloodgood celebrating the 25th Anniversary of their ‘Metal Missionaries’ EP, Once Dead celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Vengeance Rising’s ‘Once Dead’ album and a special reunion marking the 25th Anniversary of Stevie and the Saints!

I Built The Cross Signs To Open Grave Records

OPEN GRAVE RECORDS has announced the signing of Nevada-based death metal band I BUILT THE CROSS.

I BUILT THE CROSS was formed during the summer of 2008 by two long time-time friends and ex-members of the popular death metal band Disfiguring the Goddess. As friends, Reed and Gare have been closer than brothers since before either of them can remember, and as musicians, they've been working together for the last several years. Although they have been involved in musical projects spanning various different genres all across the board, they claim that death metal is the only form of musical expression that can truly make their hearts, minds, and desires most tangible.

I BUILT THE CROSS is a Christ-centered, spirit-led technical death metal band with a driven and distinguishable purpose: spread Jesus' name to an audience of people in a music scene that is generally stereotyped as "evil." To them, musicians aren't defined by the music they play, rather, it is the other way around. As a whole, I BUILT THE CROSS is ultimately concerned with clarifying the unconditional love of Jesus - the Savior, the Friend, the Father.

Look for I BUILT THE CROSS's debut album out this spring on OPEN GRAVE RECORDS.
