Angelica, Reviews -

When Angelica first appeared, it was a project conceived byguitarist/songwriter Dennis Cameron with four albums beingreleased between the years of 1989 to 1992. After a 27 yearhiatus, Angelica has returned with a new release, but with atwist. The songs released during the project’s first run were typicalof the pop glam metal era, which is not to say that they werebad songs. They were known for Cameron’s guitar work andstraightforward lyrics, proclaiming a bold message.

Christian Metal, Christian Rock -

There are tens of thousands of Christian Bands and artist out today.  However it wasn't but about 25-30 years ago during the mid to early 80's that there were literally only a few dozen Christian bands, and even less Christian Rock and Metal Bands.  Early on there were artist like Resurrection Band, Love Song, Larry Norman, Sweet Comfort, 2nd Chapter of Acts, Randy Stonehill and others, but it wasn't till Cornerstone Festival launched and started to give a stage and presence for Christian Metal Bands.
