Roxx Records and NoLifeTilMetalRecords are at it yet again! We are so stoked to bring you the latest round of releases! In fact, we are going to bring out 4 brand new titles to you right now all at once!
Lets start with a Classic Christian Metal title! Flash back to the late 80’s and early 90’s in Southern California where the Christian Metal and glam scene were going strong! This classic Christian metal band was out there doing there thing and should have made it much bigger than they did. This time Roxx gives the special remaster treatment to the one and only, Eternal Ryte as we bring you the bands debut, and only full length release, ‘World Requiem’
‘World Requiem’ was originally released in 1990 and just celebrated its 30th Anniversary, and was produced by legendary producer Cesar Kalinowski. This album is a true classic in the genre and to the Christian Metal community. Alas the band would never release a sophomore release and would head off into Christian Metal obscurity after this amazing debut, and we are bringing it back to life for a new generation.
‘World Requiem’ is being released on vinyl for the very first time ever! And it is being released as a part of the Roxx 100 Series where we focus on obscure indies and release them exclusively in a 100 piece format. Yes only 100 pieces of this will be pressed on a beautiful black 180g vinyl. In addition this historic piece of Christian Metal history will get the exclusive Gold disc treatment in a limited pressing of only 300 copies! In our usual pattern we used the now legendary duo of Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound) and Scott Waters (No Life TIl Metal Graphics) to remaster and design this one in to a beautiful collectors piece.

Lets head over to NoLifeTilMetal Records next where we are unveiling the debut release from Southern California’s very own Madrost. NoLifeTilMetal Records is proud to announce the CD and vinyl re-issue of the 2012 debut "Maleficent" from Southern California based progressive thrash metal band Madrost.
Founded in the summer of 2007, Madrost is a progressive death thrash act focused on precision songwriting and an energetic diverse approach to their sound. Influenced by the likes of Metal Church, Death, ELP, Believer, Coroner, Mekong Delta and Iron Maiden, the band has transformed from a straight-forward thrash/death style to incorporating a wide range of other instruments and time signatures into their own unique sound and style. Madrost signed with NoLifeTilMetal Records in 2020 to release their fourth album, the progressive thrash masterpiece "Charring The Rotting Earth."
“Maleficent” was initially released in 2012 as an independent CD-R release and has been out of print and out of circulation for years. Unlike the bands more recent releases, "Maleficent" is a more straight-forward thrash/death metal album. The album featured furious riffs, blistering speed, shredding guitar solos and vicious, biting vocals.
Both the vinyl and CD re-issues will be remastered by Rob Colwell (Bombworks Sound). The CD will feature an expanded booklet and an exclusive bonus track. This vinyl will also be limited to only 100 copies on 180g black vinyl, and the CD is a jewel case edition with 8 page booklet limited to a 300 piece pressing.

Up next heading back over to Roxx Records we are very honored to be working with these two amazing artists Nick Layton (FireWolfe, Q5) and Roger Dale Martin (Vengeance Rising, Die Happy) in conjunction with Sanctuary International. Going under the name Layton & Martin (L&M), this debut album is an instrumental masterpiece, combining some of the most classic hymns and amazing rock music to create “Roxology (Unearthing Majestic Hymns from The Catacombs)”
The Layton & Martin “Roxology” album is the culmination of years of work that began with one song (Deep Deep Love of Jesus). After that song was recorded, a vision began to develop for a full album of classic instrumental hymns. In the 21st century, the hymns are largely ignored, as well as their deep and rich content – relegating them to the catacombs of music history. Beyond that, many people who have a great connection to hard rock and heavy metal music have not been introduced to these masterpieces of musical expression. Thus Roxology. Ten amazingly arranged and performed classic hymns that not only Rox your ears, but your soul as well.
This album includes the lyrics to each song. They are provided so the listener can spend time meditating on the great Biblical truths declared by the original hymn writers. In addition, the band will be launching www.RoxologyMusic.com very soon, with stories and study tools that bring each song to life. This music will enrich you in your pursuit of a deeper and richer worship of our Majestic God. As stated by the 19th century, English pastor J.C. Ryle, “Good hymns are an immense blessing to the Church. They train people for heaven, where praise is one of the principal occupations.”
