Miss Angie Is Back With A New EP

Miss Angie is back!

By Colin Cruz

Miss Angie hit the scene as a teenage rocker on Myrrh Records in 1997, with the smash rock hits Lift My Eyes Up, Satisfied, and Hands.   I loved playing those songs on my weekly FM Christian rock show back then.  The title track from her debut disc, pictured above, 100 Million Eyeballs, was released to Christian CHR/Top 40 radio at the same time as the debut rock single Lift My Eyes Up, and of course, 100 Million Eyeballs was way too cool for most Christian CHR stations, but I was happy to be able to play it on a Christian Hot CHR station that used to exist in Albuquerque when I was there in 1998-2001.

In 1999, her sophomore disc Triumphantine came out, featuring the rock hit I Love Light.

In 2011, under the radar, she dropped an album called Time And Space.

And now in 2021, she releases her new EP called Desert Flags.   The Blastozoic Era has added the song Joy Rider to The Middle Blastozoic Era show playlist.

Stryper To Hell With The Devil…2.0???

I think most Stryper fans know deep in their hearts that despite some solid recent albums,  Stryper will never be able to top their 1986 album To Hell With The Devil.   But they will soon release an album that may very well be their best album since To Hell With The Devil.

The band recently recorded the whole album all over again at Spirithouse Studios in Massachussets.

Rights and use issues surround some of their earlier works and this will certainly give the band some more freedoms and probably open up some more income streams from airplay and other usage of the new versions of the songs.

Miss Angie Is Going To Make A New Album

Miss Angie  is a modern rock/alternative artist that put out two records of that ilk in the late 1990’s on Myrrh Records.   Well, guess what?  She is back at it!  She is working on a new album that will be produced by acclaimed producer Gabriel Wilson, who was the lead singer of The Rock n Roll Worship Circus.   Both groups are played frequently on the Middle Blastozoic Era radio show on The Blastozoic Era radio station:

Miss Angie tells The Blastozoic Era: “We are picking songs now and they range from sounding grunge 90’s to prayer roomy with a little edge. ”  She also says that  Wilson may also be playing guitars on the record.

The album is slated to come out in mid 2020.

 

 

Zion Has A New Album Coming Out

80’s Christian metal band Zion has a new album coming out.  Pre-sale orders are being taken now.

As far as mainstream comparisons go, the band sounds most like AC/DC, musically and vocally.

70’s and 80’s  Swedish Christian rock band has hired a Norwegian travel agency to plan an excursion to the city of Jerusalem, Israel in June 2020.  It will be a time to be enjoyed by both the band and its fans…as the band Jerusalem plays concerts in the city Jerusalem.   The band is inviting you to come hear their music in the city they get their name from…and to enjoy food, fellowship, and sight-seeing with them, and to walk where Jesus and the disciples walked.
