Sometimes the demo recording of a song has a vibe that cannot be duplicated. The songwriting process can be cathartic, especially if you're trying to make sense of things in your life through the music.
Some of these demos were recorded to pitch the music to the label or producer. There are cases where someone writes a song for an artist and actually sings it as a reference for them to learn the tune. Again, this is what this record is about, not better or worse, but enjoying all the steps in the process. When he got in the studio to make the record there was a strong sentiment of sticking close to the demos and trying to recapture that intimacy. On the other side of that coin some of these are a testament to the production.
It is always interesting to see what twists and turns a song takes from inception to the finished version. We hope you enjoy Demotis Vol. It is a pleasure to share this stuff with the world.

Pulling inspiration from old 45's from Bruce's personal collection, he'd capture the musicians recording together on the fly, trying to conjure some of the hoodoo from those old recordings while adding a bit of hoodoo of his own.
Livgren though, much like Lazarus, would have a second chance at life. Led by his devout faith and months of intensive physical therapy he persevered, making what his doctor's and therapists described as a nearly miraculous recovery. With his faith in God stronger than ever he returned to the recording studio a year later "with a new determination in seeing the cantata finally becoming a reality. The In God We Trust - Stryper - In God We Trust (Cassette of Lazarus - A Canata by Kerry Livgren is a triumph from its opening overture through its magnificent conclusion.
Lazarus is a truly moving and riveting piece. Livgren''s cinematic-like compositions rise to crescendos in concert with a group of incredibly talented vocalists who bring the story of Lazarus to life with hair raising solos and awe inspiring choirs.
The all-star cast that Livgren has assembled shines brightly throughout the album's 60 plus minutes. It'll also might help you understand why many of the lyrics didn't rhyme. I remember shaking my head as a year-old confused as to why musically it sounded so good but the lyrics felt a bit out of place.
Upon reflection, we understand all these years later that the album was written in Swedish and then transposed to English later on. In any case, the album is raw, unpolished, and sometimes uneven, but I love the unpretentious sound and feel of it. Loaded with keyboards and guitars yet somehow not too flashy.

In13 years later, the band released the album, Live At Bobfest Thankfully Live At Bobfest gives you all the things you want in a live performance and none of the things you don't and just might be one of the best live albums you have ever set your ears to.
Live albums are not popular for three main reasons. The audio quality is nowhere near the level and quality of studio albums, the singer often goes off into different vocal arrangements or lack thereof, which is not what the fans wanna hear, they want to sing along to the same song that they've been singing along to in their car. The other reason would be all the ad lib and talking between songs and chiding with the crowd. Without context it's impossible to feel like you were a part of it.
Live At Bobfest sampler: www. The same can be said for both "Prophecy" and "Rebirth," with latter treating listeners to inspired echoed guitar leads. The band even breaks open a fresh can of pure charm with the delightful country rocker, "Romans " and the laid back campy "The Joy of the Lord.

Christian metal is not a solitary style of music, but rather an ideological umbrella term that comprises almost every subgenre of heavy metal music. The musicians within Christian metal bands typically base their lyrics on Judeo-Christian traditions. The lyrical approach of Christian metal bands is somewhat varied, as some emphasize the positive aspects of faith matters while others iterate the teachings of Christ.
Some bands keep their message hidden in metaphors. Only a minority take an aggressive attitude towards those who speak against Christianity, "preaching full-on fire and brimstone and Old Testament style God's wrath back at extreme Satanists ". The lyrical style varies depending on culture, denomination, and country. For example, in Northern Europe the bands with Lutheran members usually prefer a personal lyrical approach, which is seldom meant to " convert " in an aggressive manner, since evangelism has been more typical among American bands.
Christian bands never deny their conviction but typically avoid preaching, and sometimes the matter is left unexpressed, leaving religion as a private issue of the listener. In such cases, identifying a "Christian band" can be difficult. Secular bands that occasionally deal with Christian topics are a different matter altogether. Defining a Christian band is a much debated issue on Christian metal forums.
A Christian band is expected to have either professed Christian members or a Christian message, preferably both. Led Zeppelin's " Whole Lotta Love " could just as well be a conversation between husband and wife, as not. Black Sabbath's " Electric Funeral " exactly parallels the blood red moon of the Book of Revelation by John of Patmoswhile their " Hand of Doom " describes the ravages of drug abuse.
Ozzy Osbourne could be heard preaching to his audience in the earlier song, " Children of the Grave ": "Tell the world that love is still alive you must be brave; or the children of today are children of the grave.
Early heavy metal fans were viewed by the populace as a counterculturejust as the fans of rock and roll, in general, were. Early heavy metal lyrics and themes were often accused of challenging Christian values, and as the genre grew, some bands actually did.
Among the early bands who were accused of adding negative connotations to the term was Black Sabbath. Although there are now metal fans of more-advanced ages, from its origins through the s their age centered on teen years. Some metal songs criticize religion, such as " Death Church " by Machine Headwhich "critici[zes] the hypocrisy of the Christian church. The metal subgenre with the most emphasis on apocalyptic themes is thrash metal. Christian metal has its origins in the late s and early s in the Jesus movementa hippie movement with Christian ideology consisting of hippies that converted to Christianity.
The Christian hippies within this movement, known as " Jesus People ", developed a musical movement called Jesus musicwhich primarily began in southern California, ex. Los Angeles when hippie street musicians converted to Christianity. These musicians continued playing the same styles of music they had played before converting, among them heavy metal music, though they infused their lyrics with a Christian message. Larry Norman was one of the earliest Christian rock musicians who released his first album titled Upon This Rock in which is arguably the first Christian rock album produced.
The first Christian hard rock group was possibly the California-based band Agape, formed in the late s. Known for their psychedelic rock and blues influences, the band released an album titled Gospel Hard Rock infollowed by Victims of Tradition in The Swedish group Jerusalem was formed in and is cited as another early Christian hard rock group. Both albums had a notable impact on Christian music culture. Jerusalem also became an instant hit among listeners, and within the first six months the record sold 20, copies, unheard of within the genre of Christian rock in Europe.
In the early s, there were four notable Christian heavy metal groups: Messiah ProphetLeviticusSaintand Stryper. Stryper was also the first band to identify as Christian metal. Stryper gained attention with their way of throwing Bibles to the audience at their concerts. During the mids, heavy metal music divided into autonomous subgenres. Weinstein described the thematic diversity that cross-cuts musical styles: "In the s, white metal and black metal emerged. Their lyrical themes are at polar opposites to each other, one of them bringing the 'good news' and the other the 'bad news.
White metal is commonly called Christian metal. In part a response to the popularity of the heavy metal genre, it transforms the code of heavy metal to serve purposes of Evangelical Christian sects and other denominations.
In part, also, Christian metal is a well-crafted missionary effort to recruit members and save souls. Satanic symbols and imagery have been a staple of heavy metal since its beginnings with Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. In the West, there is no better symbol for rebellion. But groups such as Mercyful Fate claimed that they were not playing. Their claims to be true believers, followers of the lord of the underworld, were seen by many to be a commercial ploy.
Soon the Christian metal bands became controversial for their beliefs and often evangelistic goals in the metal music scene, which typically holds individualism in particularly high esteem. The album To Hell with the Devil sold 2 million copies and achieved a Grammy nomination. Not Album) was Christian metal criticized by non-Christian metal fans, but soon the movement was also criticized by fundamentalists; Allmusic wrote that "when church leaders were accusing heavy metal of encouraging Satanism, Stryper set out to prove that metal and hard rock could be used to promote Christianity.
The southern California band was viewed with suspicion by both ministers who refused to believe that Christianity and metal were compatible and fellow headbangers—and yet, Stryper managed to sell millions of albums to both Christian and secular audiences.
In contrast, however, many Christian evangelists and church organizations took a more supportive role. For example, televangelist Jim Bakker expressed public support for the group Stryper, watching them perform and becoming personal friends with the band's members.
Christian metal soon developed into its own independent record labels and networks. Soon there appeared other labels such as R. Records and Intense Records. Fanzines were published in several countries, with Heaven's Metal as the first one in the US in During that time almost every Christian record label became interested in Christian metal, and they advertised the newly signed metal bands on their roster on Heaven's Metal since it was the only publication exclusively covering the movement.
Soon Heaven's Metal achieved more popularity and became an official, professional publication. Heaven's Metal achieved a dedicated flock of 15, readers. Bands' sales usually rose when the ensembles were covered on the magazine.
Many rock and metal fans that became Christians through the ministry of Christian metal bands were rejected from churches in the s. This fellowship brought many musicians together and formed groups such as Tourniquet, Deliverance, Vengeance and Mortal that would soon become ground breaking acts in Christian music culture. This proved influential and soon Christian metal festivals were organized elsewhere as well.
Sanctuary's activities began spreading, and it had 36 parishes all over the United States at its peak by the s. The Sanctuary parishes had a significant impact on the Christian metal movement: groups that would later become notable such as P.
By the late s, the parish's workers felt that regular churches' attitudes towards metalheads, rockers and punks had become more permissive, and therefore did not feel the need to keep Sanctuary going on any longer, hence, most of the parishes of Sanctuary were closed.
Sanctuary became Sanctuary International, and it currently gives international studies and lessons on Christianity. Sanctuary also runs an internet radio station called "Intense Radio" which, inreached approximatelylisteners.
