A Book About Xtian Metal? It Was Only A Matter Of Time...
March 27, 2010
Heavy Metal has long been associated with dark, evil and nefarious themes. Throughout its history, Metal has also been linked with rebellion and the questioning of authority. While the stigma has by and large been accurate in the past [and it still is and always will be accurate - Ed.], an underground movement has been gaining popularity over the last decade. Extreme Christian Musicians, they look and sound the same, but they are bringing a message of hope, faith, love and redemption to fans of the genre. There have long been fringe Christian Metal Bands with product available exclusively in Christian outlets and gift shops. For the first time Extreme Christian music has moved from the dusty back bins of the Christian Book Stores to the front racks at super retailers like Best Buy, Wal-Mart, Target and Hot Topic. Everyday these bands are on the road traversing the country and taking their message and their brand of music to the masses hoping to make a difference. "Metal Missionaries" contains in depth interviews with over twenty groundbreaking Extreme Christian Artists from around the globe, including Becoming The Archetype, Corpus Christi , Grave Robber, Fearscape and many more.

Beginning April 1st 2010, "Metal Missionaries" will be available for digital download exclusively through www.undark.net. Log onto www.undark.net to order and download your own personal copy.

What People are saying about "Metal Missionaries":

"Bruce Moore has taken on the arduous task of communicating with extreme Christian bands from all over the globe to assemble a very concise and informative book. Metal Missionaries dismantles some of the ignorance surrounding what is deemed "acceptable" to God in modern music and shows that God is so much more creative than any of us could begin to fathom. I have no doubt that this book will bless any true metal fan. May God continue to bless you as well, Bruce!" -Wretched, Grave Robber

"Although volumes could be written containing testimonies from Christian bands and their fans, Bruce Moore has captured the spirit of the movement in this wonderful book. In it you will find his heart, as well as the hearts of many Christian metal musicians as they convey the feelings and experiences of so many that have been involved in this exciting movement for the past few decades." - Pastor Bob Beeman, Sanctuary International

"It would be a gross denial to claim that Metal Missionaries is anything but a solid journalistic foray into the burgeoning Christian Metal movement. To my knowledge, no other book on the market so honestly and expansively presents this generally unreported phenomenon. Metal Missionaries is an enjoyable read, even for a blaspheming rabble-rouser of my notorious caliber. In Bruce Moore, "The Snake" once again loses a fine propagandist." - Dr. Ryan Bartek; author of "The Big Shiny Prison."

"Metal Missionaries is a smooth read and offers wonderful insight into a peculiar sect of metal, one which has experienced scrutiny and even contempt from both secular and religious communities alike. As a person immersed in the same music communities as Bruce, I still found myself learning many new things. This book is not only factual and informative, but also a fine example of why Bruce is such a pleasure to work with and know." - Chris Gonda, founder of PureGrainAudio.
