This week on the MetalUnderground.com Official Podcast, we bring you yet another band hailing from Dayton, Ohio. This time it’s Four Star Revival, a four-piece Christian outfit dedicated to spreading the Good News not through screamo/hardcore - as has become inexplicably and irritatingly custom - but through an invigorating blend of hard rock, traditional and power metal.

Debut album “Knights Of The Revival” is out now, and we are proud to present and discuss the song “Hold On,” followed by an airing of “Red” at our sign-off.

Co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) has another ticket giveaway for Fort Lauderdale’s Revolution Live to announce, so tune in to hear the details. He also is eager to report on his experience at last month’s giveaway concert featuring The Ghost Inside, Every Time I Die, and Architects.

Co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) reacts to the recent implosion of Megadeth’s lineup that saw drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick unceremoniously exit the band. He also has a few thoughts to express regarding the online reaction to the widely-publicized financial woes of former Creed frontman Scott Stapp.

And before you start hollering, for the record, NO, he does not think Creed was a “metal” band. To learn why he thinks this topic belongs in the discussion… you’ll just have to listen in!

You can do so here, and subscribe via iTunes and RSS feed.

Greetings, Kevin and Mike!
I would just like to share a thought or two about "Bloodstone and Diamonds" and Scott Stapp.
Having heard the Machine Head album, I agree that it needs a few spins to grow on you. It´s not to explain why it´s that way. The songs on "The Blackening" or even "Unto The Locust" were sequenced in a traditional / familiar way; even the song seem constructed differently. It challenges you, which is a good thing.
From where I stand, Creed were a Christian, hard rock band. They also had a clean image. Of course all the "it serves him right" is stupid beyond belief. Again, heavy metal used to be hard´n´heavy, a designation that would include anything from Venom or Slayer to Whitesnake or Bon Jovi. It recognized heavy metal came from rock´n´roll. Today, metal labelling seems very market-oriented.
Finally, Happy New Year to both of you. May 2015 be a great year for you and for the podcast.
