Australian Summer Update: December 1st 2013 to February 28th 2014.
Hi everyone and from all of us here in Rowe Productions, Mortification, Wonrowe Vision and Silver Bullet Records, we wish you all a BLEST AND SAFE JESUS' BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION!
Yes, this update is a little early, but that is because we want to remind you of all the possible gifts that you can purchase from the Store at www.roweproductions.com
A HUGE thank you to Adam at www.soundmass.com for all the support this year! We are truly grateful!! A special personal Thanks from myself to my wife Kate for another year of great support! Happy 24th Wedding Anniversary my darling!! Vic Campbell for your tireless work on my Biography and Sherri Ross for endless promotion and enthusiasm for all things Rowe Productions! Congratulations to AntiDemon for your successful World Tour preaching the Jesus Metal Gospel and sowing seeds into the hearts of the lost.
Some of you may have guessed from these quarterly updates that I am taking a few months hiatus at the moment. This time out is to work through my Biography with Vic Campbell and simply to recharge the batteries! I did announce that I would be retiring in 2015, but now hope that this time out gives me the ability to keep on going with Mortification into my 50's as of 2015!
I have completed talking about my life in its entirety onto the Garage Band Recording program and then sending my story on CDs to Vic Campbell. You can all be assured that my Life's Story is in good hands with Vic who is an accomplished writer. If you have not already done so, please visit www.silverbulletrecords.com and pick up Rosanna Palmer's Biography 'Rock N Roll Believer' which was also penned by Vic.
Please visit the STORE at www.roweproductions.com and pick yourself up some great Christmas Gifts! Relentless, Brain Cleaner, Erasing The Goblin and Scribe Of The Pentateuch have now ALL been re-issued through Soundmass! All CDs contain Audio from the most important concerts surrounding each release. Relentless has our Live performances from The CRN Festival in Germany 2002, Brain Cleaner has songs from Revolution Metal Fest in Mexico City 2004, Erasing The Goblin has songs from Nordic Fest in Norway 2007 and Scribe Of The Pentateuch has songs from this year's Easterfest performance. All 4 re-issues have new and extended artwork in very professional packaging and presentation! Great work Adam!!
Please also take a look and listen to Wonrowe Vision Live At Easterfest on YouTube, along with our Mortification performance there. Our Wonrowe Vision CDs are also available! Much Gratefulness for your ongoing support of both Mortification and Wonrowe Vision!
I am VERY EXCITED AS JESUS METAL IS ALIVE AND WELL ONCE AGAIN! After a dirge of the secularisation of Christian Music for many years, prominent Jesus Metal Messages ARE BACK! Stryper have ALWAYS been the catalyst for change towards the acceptance of Jesus Metal in both the Christian and Secular Metal Realms! The new Stryper Album 'No More Hell To Pay' is the Band's BEST ALBUM in my opinion!! Plus take a look at www.soundmass.com for the new Sacred Warrior, AntiDemon, Bloodgood and Dueteronium Albums!! COMING SOON is the new Lament 20th Anniversary CD and the Debut Album by Worldview, featuring George Ochoa on Guitar and Rey Parra on Vocals! KEEP SOCIAL COMMENTARY OUT OF OUR JESUS METAL SCENE and out in the secular Metal world where it belongs! As you know, there is NOTHING WRONG with Social Commentary Bands, but the fact is that Social Commentary is not going to lead people to Faith In Jesus! Of course I have the danger here of coming across as judgemental with my opinions, so please read Romans Chapter 14 to think about WHAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU! What if right for me is simply my own perspective of course. We all have to stand before God one day and give an account of our lives. So in saying this, maybe check the lyrics to find out what your Fav Bands are saying or not. If you want the BEST OF SOCIAL COMMMENTARY Bands then check out U2, Napalm Death, Midnight Oil, Trouble and King's X! Great Bands, but they are NOT Christian Rock or Metal Bands! This is JUST MY perspective on this. See the above mentioned Jesus Metal Bands if you wish to feed your hungry ears with the JESUS GOSPEL TRUTH OF SALVATION!
In my hiatus these past 6 months I have been writing a NEW Mortification Album! I am 5 songs in and, for the first time since May, Andrew and I rehearsed some of the new songs together last weekend. We will present these to LLincoln in late January and go from there when we return to full practise and gigging mid 2014! The New Mort songs sound FAST and FURIOUS, mainly in the vein of Break The Curse, Self-Titled, Post Momentary and Erasing The Goblin Albums. Not sure how or when the next Mort Full Length will be Recorded. I am planing a FULL LIVE 25th Anniversary Recording and maybe a DVD that could make up a Double Disc release in late 2015 or early 2016. I will start checking our options next year. The biggest hurdle is always the financial one and, of course, firstly we need to find a Publisher or the finances to release my Biography. I also have a full and completely NEW Wonrowe Vision Album written, but at this stage that may never get Recorded.
So please keep us in your prayers and also the other Jesus Metal Missions around the world! ALSO, MOST IMPORTANTLY, pray for your Fav Secular Artists and Christians in Secular Bands like the Mega Daves from Megadeth, Brian Head Welsh who is back in Korn, Nicko McBrain from Maiden and Alice Cooper who we MUST keep in prayer as he is doing some scary underground work touring with Marilyn Manson. AntiDemon just Toured Eastern Europe with a black metal band who represented satan. AntiDemon boldly stood for Jesus in that dark scene! All of these people need our prayers as we also pray for one another!
Blessings to all for an awesome JESUS METAL 2014!
