  • STRYPER's tour in the USA was a big success to say the least! According to the concert reports they sounded better than ever and Michael could still hit all the high notes just like he used to. The band was very Christcentered and even took time to pray with the audience. If you were not able to attend the tour I have some great news for you... There will be a DVD released from the tour! There will also be a live cd released!! WOW!!! Now we really have something to look forward to! Both the cd and dvd will be released sometime during next year probably in Spring/Summer 2004. Concert reports from the tour and lots of other interesting stuff are available on

  • MORTIFICATION is in the studio recording their new album. It will be titled Brain Cleaner and will be the heaviest project the band has recorded in Ten Years. A lot more of a Death Metal/Grind orientated album but with plenty of Power & Thrash Metal mixed in to keep it interesting and multi dimensional.

    Mike Forsberg (ex Cybergrind) comes into the band on drums replacing Adam Zaffarese who left the band in February for career reasons. Steve thanks Adam for his 3 years of youthful input into the band. The World Tour was a high point for the band in 2001. Mike Forsberg has many years experience playing in Extreme Metal bands and brings a big feel of early Mortification back into the sound. Steve is the main man on Bass & vocals with Mick Jelinic continuing on Guitar to complete the new lineup. Expect a February 2004 release through Rowe Productions initially.

The 2CD NordicFest Edition of "COME ARMAGEDDON" was limited to only 300x and deleted the same night. The 1CD Edition is now officially released and available from our webstore to a special anniversary price, and serves as a great introduction to all our releases from EXTOL: "BURIAL" to VARDØGER "WHITEFROZEN".

    We can confirm that ANTESTOR have finished recording their new fullength, and that it sounds awesome...more news about that next year!

    The MCD release is sure to become a classic not just for those who already know the genre.

The first edition comes as 999x limited Digipak with extended artwork, in true ENDTIME tradition.

    To celebrate the first five years of the label and its work, ENDTIME PRODUCTIONS SWEDEN are proud to present "COME ARMAGEDDON"! Featuring one track from each release spanning from EXTOL to VARDØGER, and with each track being a classic in itself it serves more as a great introduction to the label than a closure of the first 5 years. So as the end times themselves draw to their inevitable close there are many things that we know are to come. One of these is the continued work of ENDTIME PRODUCTIONS in bringing us special, unique releases where we can look for a clue to the Eternal Treasure that is hidden in the present chaos. Come Armageddon. Artwork by the famous Kristian Wahlin aka Necrolord (AT THE GATES, EMPEROR, DISSECTION, EXTOL etc etc).

  • Crimson Moonlight's new album The Covenant Progress received 9.5 of 10 in Germany leading Rockmagazine Rock Hard!!! Here is what Rock Hard magazine wrote:

    The perfect mixture of Dissection and Dimmu Borgir. Considering the heaviness of their music, one shouldn't think that it is possible that there is close link to Narnia. Hubertus, the brother of Narnia's singer Christian is the guitarist of the band and our favourite Malmsteen-like guitarist, Carl-Johan Grimmark, produced "The Covenant Progress" target="external". This album is definitely as good as the all-time classic "Storm of the Light's Bane" target="external" by Dissection! The forceful guitar leads, which almost pierce your ear-drum painfully are among the best that have ever come to us from the high north. In addition to that there are powerful drums, fitting breaks and a gifted shouter. Black (-metallic) heart, could you ask for more? Crimson Moonlight would deserve to be licensed by a big label. But until this is the case, you will have to contact good, specialized mail-order companies or their label
    9,5 / 10 points

    Last but not least I have started to build a worldwide network of concert promoters and venues that are open for christian metal bands. The plan is to make it international so christian metal bands can get in touch with good promoters and avenues, all over the world .

    To make this network as useful and good as possible I need your help and input! So if you know of any good and trustable promoters that are willing to organize christian metal gigs, please let me know. I need the following info: 1) Name of the promoter 2) Promoters email 3) in which area and country they can organize gigs, and 4) if the gigs are in christian or secular places or both.

    Secondly I need your help to locate avenues, both churches and secular places that are open for christian metal bands to come and play. I need the following info: 1) name, email and phone to a contact person, 2) name of the avenue, 3) what kind of avenue it is (church, club, stadium, theatre etc) and 4) the full address to the avenue, and 5) in which area and country it is located .

    So if you can help with any of this I would be very thankful! If you are in a band I'm sure you know some places and organizers you can recommend... Mail me with any info you have to

    I know some of you out there has been wondering what's been going on with Vaakevandring. Well, to be honest: NOT MUCH! We played our last show in Oslo, December 2001, and sadly, this WOULD be the last show from Vaakevandring. Due to some personal affairs within the band, we took a break after our guitarplayer left the band in early spring of 2002. He was our webmaster, which is the reason the website has been down for a while. The 4 remaining members then decided to end the band late 2002, because of several reasons. One being that 3 of the 4 members are now involved in ANTESTOR fulltime. We don't want to make this dramatic at all, and we (all 5) former members of the band are still good friends and see each other every now and then. However, there are a few Vaakevandring songs that we (the 4 remaining members) hope to be able to record and release as a full length some day. Maybe this year, but nothing has been set yet. Thanks alot for your support, and we look really forward to serve you with Antestor and other projects too!
    God bless!
    On behalf of Antestor/Vaakevandring,
    Pål Dæhlen

  • For the 7th year in a row there was a prayer meeting for christian metal on the christian conference Nyhemsveckan. ca 40 people attended and prayed according to Matthews 18:19 for revival in the swedish metal world, for the christian metal bands, for unity, for Bobfest, for christian metal cds, zines, websites etc, that God will use them in a mighty way to lead many to Christ. It was a very powerful prayer meeting that lasted for almost an hour. The prayermeeting was organized by Prayer Warriors, a prayerchain praying for revival in the swedish metal world.

    Things here at the Bride camp have been very enterprising. Mainly we have focused our attention on song writing and preparing for the studio May 31st. We have chosen 12 songs out of the couple of dozen we have worked on. We believe we have a great group of songs and are confident that the Bride fans are going to enjoy. We have read over your emails and letters throughout the past year and we did as many of you suggested. We have drawn inspiration from within and have composed songs that we really enjoy playing. Thus far we have no ballads but one never knows once a band enters the studio if the creative bug will bite or not. We only have a couple of more weeks to rehearse but will be more than ready to lay these songs down.

    The recording process will be done on each weekend in the month of June and hopefully mixed during this time frame. The band is producing this work and we are going to bring out who and what Bride really is in the recording. If you liked the live vibe and dry mixes of Snakes in the Playground then you will really like the new CD.

    Because CD's are not just recorded and sent out immediately, we expect a release date to be around the end of August. We still need an artist to design a cover and there will still be time spent at the manufacturing plant. It seems like that the recording of a CD is easier than preparing it for release. Because this will be an independent release we encourage anyone and everyone involved with magazines, radio and bookstores to contact us. We want to service all legitimate outlets.

    We will let you know when it will be time to preorder. Meanwhile we could use your help in promoting this new project. Call your radio stations and tell youth groups etc about the new CD. The success of this project will be determined by the fans and will also influence the longevity of the band.


    Many of you have requested that Bride release a DVD of live footage etc. Troy and I have gone through the over 100 video recordings that we have shot of the band over the past 18 years and have put together what we hope is the first of many projects which chronicles the band. The newest DVD / Video project is called "Bride The World Tour" This work contains 90 minutes of never before seen video footage (some that we feared had been lost). On this project you will see what it is to fly with Bride, room with Bride, hang out back stage with Bride, drive and eat with Bride. This project takes you along on tour and vacation as the band makes its way to South America and back. There is also footage of them sight seeing and a lot of serious humor and tragedy. This in my opinion is the most up close and personal footage ever released of the group. The sales success of this project will dictate future Bride DVD releases. In other words if you, the fans support this DVD we will do more in the future. It is rather costly to do the DVD format but since many of you desired the DVD format we thought we would give you an opportunity to own one. We are taking preorders now. This project is $16.00 video and $20.00 DVD. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks delivery.

    If you are interested in ordering this video or the DVD "Bride The World Tour" send a check or money order to Bride 295 Churchview Road West Point KY 40177 or email your credit card information, along with your name and mailing address to this email address. I will take care of each order personally. Please allow a little time to receive these. If you live outside of the United States send $3.00 postage.

BOBFEST  2003  - Soli  Deo  Gloria! (Festival report)

This year Pastor Bob's plane was just on time. I met him at the airport at the same minute the plane should arrive! The plane even landed 20 minutes BEFORE scheduled time! Have never seen that happen before? Bob lived at my place for almost two days where I got the opportunity to show him the beautiness of the swedish capitol Stockholm, including the very wellpreserved huge warship Wasa that was built 1628 (!) as well as the Old Town that's also several hundred years old. (Stockholm is 750 years old BTW). Besides showing Bob Stockholm he was also my guest in my christian metal radio show Metal Radio where he chose his
favourite tunes and had plenty of interesting things to say about all the bands.

On Wednesday evening we continued by train to Linkoping. There we hooked up with Daniel, Olov, Samuel and Hannah from the Bobfest crew. As always there were plenty of things to take care of to get everything in order for the festival so we had some busy days. On Thirsday we all met at Daniel's mothers house and had a great time in fellowship and prayer. Prayer has always been an important part of the festival and it's truly the foundation of it and I really want to thank everyone that have kept this festival in prayer. Your prayer has meant more than words can say...

Friday came and we continued with the preparation for Bobfest. Since this was our 5th year I had made a special Bobfest gallery with articles, photos, posters and other cool memories thoughout the years.

Bobfest began 7.00 pm with the opening service with Pastor Bob. This year we had a great worship team including members from Extol which made the worship both powerful and rocking. After the service was over everyone went over to the concert place called Cupolen. This was the first time we have been in this place and it's a great place with plenty of space both for the audience and all the music sellers. (Bobfest is also a great place to get cool music BTW.)

Unfortunately there were some problems with the soundcheck that caused the gigs to be delayed 40 minutes :( But when it finally started it went well with some minor problems. Except this delay almost everything has went very smooth this year. (Which made things a lot easier for us organizers :)

Callisto started the gig with their metalcore sounding music. They are a finnish band and I hadn't heard much of them earlier. They were heavier than I expected but still too much core to my taste. Crimson Moonlight followed next. It was nice to see them live again! As always they have the cool viking/black metal image with swords and candles and fitting clothes. They played plenty of new material from their brand new cd The Crimson Progress since this also was their releasegig. Their new tunes are
really fast and brutal and will blow you away. They ended with one of their classics from their previous release Eternal Emperor.

Narnia then took the stage! They played of mix of both new and old material. The new tracks sounded very heavy. Unfortunately there were problems with mikes and technical things that disturbed the band's performance. But it was a good gig anyway where Carl-Johan as usual did some cool guitarsolos. The whole band is very tight and definately one of the best metalbands out there.

Next band was Leviticus!! Yes the classic swedish hardrockers from the 80s did a reunion show just for Bobfest. And what a ride! The band ripped through classics from all their albums and sounded much heavier than on record. The singer Peo Pettersson has a fantastic voice and he sounded better than ever! Sound was tight and the band managed to play the tunes very well, especially considering that they hadn't played together for many many years. It was a great experience to see Bjorn, Kjell and the other bandmembers on stage and they really enjoyed the gig themselves. A fantastic gig and definately one of the highlights to me and many others. What a great ending to the Friday concert! I really feel sorry for all Leviticus fans that wasn't there to enjoy this awesome gig. But I have some great news for ya, the whole gig was recorded and will be released on a livecd this Summer! There will also probably be a DVD with this gig... So Leviticus is back, better than ever.

Saturday started off with metal breakfast in the church Ryttargardskyrkan where we had the conferencepart of the festival. Metal breakfast is a an awesome experience, eating breakfast with 200-400 other metalheads while listening to Tourniquet and other good metaltunes flowing through the speakers. Really cool and enjoyable to be around so many christian metalheads in the same time. It's like a family where you get to know a few more each year and you have a great time, enjoying great music and
great teachings.

At 11:00 a.m. it was time for the seminars. Pastor Bob shared some hardhitting messages about the church and how it has to change to function better. Christer Espevoll from Extol talked about God's grace, the goth/metal pastor Marcus Olson talked about how to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit and Anders Voldronning from Silence the Foe spoke about loving one's neighbour.

All seminars very very interesting and to the point. After lunch Pastor Bob had some great teachings where he shared some wise words about miscelleanous topics. (All seminars and meetings are available on tape).

Saturday concert started off with the surprise band Sons of Thunder. This time they had a better mixing than they had had on earlier Bobfest performances. Sons of Thunder played many tunes from their brand new album Circus of Power. Very heavy sounding music with Christcentered lyrics in classic Sons of Thunder style.

Azure Skies with members from Mental Destruction and Sanctum was quite an odd experience. This was the first time we have had industry on Bobfest. It was a weird experience to see the band headbanging over the computers, but that's industrial. Not really my thing but interesting to see.
Soapbox was our hardcore band this year. They have become much heavier since last time they were on Bobfest. Still too much hardcore for me to get into it, but a big step in the right direction.

The highlight for me on the Saturday gig was definately Pantokrator. They ruled the stage delivering powerful crunchy death metal. Great stage presence and they really got the crowd headbanging. Pantokrator played plenty of tunes from their brand new release Blod. One tune also contained the creed of faith. Really cool! As a special surprise they also played the Mortification cover Brutal Warfare!! Wow! Yes, finally I had opportunity to hear this tune live!! The crowd became wild (in a good way),
people were headbanging, forming moshpits and totally enjoying it. Wow, you have to see this band live. They totally shred!

Ganglion is a norwegian band that I had only heard a little from earlier. They play an own kind of punk/thrash rock'n'roll. They were heavier than I expected but still not really my thing. But they put on a energetic live show that many in the audience liked.

The evening ended with Slechtvalk from Holland. Brutal black metal and extremely fast! The bandmembers had their own kind of "corpse paint" that weren't too beautiful :) Shamgar, the main singer sang with an intense shrilled voice and he even used the shrilling voice when he talked between the tunes which made it very difficult to hear what he said. The best tune they played was a Horde cover. Well, what can I say, intense and brutal to the maximum.

Bobfest then ended on Sunday with two regular church meetings along with the ordinary churchmembers in Ryttargardskyrkan and Johanneskyrkan where Pastor Bob talked about Bobfest and the idea behind it.

So, that was Bobfest folks. Overall it was a BIG success and definately det best Bobfest this far. Bobfest have now established itself as the biggest Christian Metal Festival in Europe and this year we had visitors from 14 countries all over Europe + USA. There were ca 400 on the whole festival and ca 600 on the gigs. There were also plenty of press people on Bobfest including the biggest swedish metalmagazine Sweden Rock Magazine! National swedish radio P1 was also there as well as the local radio station radio P4 Skaraborg (they recorded the whole Leviticus-gig and will soon air it).

Bobfest was overall a GREAT experience and definately the best year this far! We had a great time, enjoying great teachings and great music. Many people were touched by God and had their lives changed. Pastor Bob also lead several people to the Lord! Amen!! So God was definately doing some great things during the festival and for that we want to give God all the glory, Soli Deo Gloria!

Bobfest 2003 was a mega success and I'm already looking forward to Bobfest 2004. C ya there??

    ***METAL  NEWS  030212***

    It's been 11+ years since all 4 original members of Stryper have set foot in a studio to record any NEW material as Stryper. Well, the wait is over! All four original members (Michael Sweet, Robert Sweet, Oz Fox, & Tim Gaines) entered the studio in January of 2003 to record 2 NEW songs that will be included on a "Best of Stryper" CD to be released by Hollywood Records! At this time the following details have been made available: The CD will consist of the band's favorite Stryper songs PLUS the 2 NEW songs. The 2 NEW songs are described as being "heavy" & "modern". The CD will be produced by Michael Sweet. Hollywood Records plans to release the CD in the Spring of 2003

    This is what Michael Sweet has to say about the new release:
    Hello Everyone! As you all know Stryper reunited for the first time in almost 12 years to record two new songs to be released through Hollywood Records in the spring of 2003. The two new songs will be part of a "Best Of" which will consist of songs chosen by the band. "Can't Stop The Rock", which was a compilation as well, basically consisted of material chosen by the label for the most part. We were limited at that time to only put a limited number of songs on the disk. This time around there will be a total of 18 songs on the new project (16 old and two new). It will take everyone on a ride from present to past as the sequence goes from newest (two new songs) to oldest (Yellow and Black Attack). The two new songs are entitled "Something" and "For You" and have a very modern day Stryper sound. We prayed for God to anoint every note and believe that He did! All of the old material will be digitally re-mastered / eq'd to add a little more punch where it lacks and a little more definition where it lacks.

    The time with the guys went really well. We prayed a lot and laughed a lot. We tracked drums and bass at Sound Station 7 on January 4th and 5th. We then tracked guitars and bgv's from the 6th to the 9th. Lead vocals were then tracked and then it was mixed. Everything went so fast. It seemed like a blur! The sound is very heavy and very modern yet we were able to stay true to what we do and have always done. There are some guitar harmonies, vocal harmonies and over all it's a very, very BIG sound!!! I'm really excited about all of you hearing it. Hopefully you'll like what you hear. We will post the lyrics here at as well as samples of the songs as soon as the label gives us the okay. The samples will only be samples, not full length.

    I believe that these songs are some of the best songs that we have ever recorded and I think that the other guys agree. These songs were two songs that I had written for a new project of mine to pass around to companies at some point. You probably remember us mentioning two new "heavy" songs? These are those two songs. The deal with Hollywood went down so fast that there was no time for us to get together to put something together. These songs were already recorded and ready to be sent out to everyone to hear. We (Stryper) then re-recorded the tracks and added the vocals. A few effect guitars were flown over to the new tracks and everything worked together perfectly! The songs were produced by myself and co-produced by Kenny Lewis. Carl Beatty was the basic track engineer (drums and bass) and Kenny Lewis tracked everything else. I brought in Jack Marques (Mars Hill) to sing bgv's with Oz and myself to add a different flavor to the vocals. The vocals turned out amazing! Oz did some great solo work as well!

    Please keep this project in your prayers. Pray for Gods will to be done and for lives to be reached / touched through these songs. We will keep you posted on everything here at and until then, blessings to all of you. Always,

    Michael Sweet

    Bassist Tim Gaines has this to say about the upcoming release:
    "This really has been an exciting month for us and a wonderful beginning to a new year 2003. On New Years morning, my wife took me to the airport and there I met [guitarist] Oz [Fox]. We departed for Providence, RI, where we met up with [vocalist] Mike [Sweet] and [drummer] Robert [Sweet]. From there we went to a Motel 6 in Seekonk, MA and the four of us went to a room and prayed together. We asked the Lord to rededicate STRYPER, to be used by Him, and to forgive our shortcomings. I am truly amazed. I never thought I would see the day when we would sit together and put the past behind us and ask God to use us again. This is an answer to much prayer that has gone up for us over the last 10 years. God is good!"

    The next two days were spent in a rehearsal studio going over the new songs that were to be recorded. It was a lot of fun and the songs came together very quickly.The Peavey guitar company sent us a truckload of equipment to use, which sounded great. It looks a though Peavey will be doing a full endorsement with STRYPER this coming year. "We went to the recording studio - Sound Station 7, and spent the first day getting drum sounds. The second day Robert and I recorded the drum and bass tracks. Time went by quickly, and before I knew it I was back on a plane to California. Oz and Mike spent another week doing guitars and vocals.

    "So you might be asking where does this all lead? Well, it leads to a new 'Best Of STRYPER' album entitled 'Seven'. It will feature two new tracks as well as previously released tracks (yet to be confirmed) celebrating our 20th anniversary. The new CD is scheduled to be released in March 2003. At this point we are talking about the possibility of some touring this summer in support of the CD."So that's it folks, it is a start of something that could be really cool. Keep us in your prayers."

Bride will write a ballad or two for this project. Bride understands how much a song like "I miss the rain" meant for so many people.
