Christian Death-Metalers Impending Doom are proving that there is room for their brand of Death Metal in a genre that has been long known for themes of evil, aggression, and destruction.

Although family members have been playing together in bands for decades, Family Force 5 bring a whole new meaning to keeping it in the family. The band was formed and is led by the Olds brothers, sons to Jerome Olds, a Christian musician from the 1980s.

One of the most popular bands to come out of the greater Toronto area in the last few years is the post-hardcore group Silverstein. These guys have been together since about 1998, but just last year started to garner some major mainstream popularity which has resulted in spots on major tours and steadily growing album sales. The group just released their third full-length LP in July titled Arrivals and Departures which has already become Silverstein’s best selling album to date. The band is currently on a very lengthy tour of North America before heading over to Europe later in the fall which will see the band on tour almost non-stop right up until the beginning of 2008.

One of the most punishing new bands to emerge onto the metal scene is Streetsboro, OH’s Forever In Terror.

Very few punk bands crack into the mainstream and even less of them do it with a political message. Chicago’s Rise Against have screamed for political activism and social responsibility since 1999, but it wasn’t until the release of their major label debut, Siren Song of the Counter Culture, that they did it on a mass scale. The album sold in excess of 500,000 copies and introduced their viewpoint and ideals to a whole new audience.
