Behold The Beloved Rocks At KCF 2021

Behold The Beloved rocked the main stage Saturday afternoon at this year’s Kingdom Come Festival.  And no, Disciple’s Kevin Young did not venture out early in the day of their set to join in the collaboration they recorded.  That would have been too much strain on Young’s voice, with all the screaming, yelling, singing and preaching Kevin does during Disciple’s 14-song sets.  But it was a good BTB show, nonetheless.

Here is a video of the first song of the set:

Gold Frankincense And Myrrh Takes Their Show Inside At KCF 2021

At Kingdom Come Festival 2021 in Indiana, Gold Frankincense and Myrrh played at the indoor Capstone Music Stage.  They brought their awesome teenage energy, charisma, showmanship, beautycore and pyrotechnic smoke.

One nearby headbanging teenage girl with long hair headbanged so hard and flung her hair back so violently, it ended up right in our grill, in the camera shot.

Fortunately, no humans or hair follicles were injured in the shooting of this video:

Interview With Brian Head Welch Of Love And Death / Korn Tuesday On TheBlast.FM

The Blast’s Colin Cruz caught up with Brian “Head” Welch, lead singer of Christian hard rock band Love And Death, earlier this month, and the interview will air tomorrow/Tuesday during Colin’s show, in the 2 PM hour, USA/Canada Central Time.

Welch was addicted to alcohol and/or drugs from the ages of 15 to 33 but he has been radically set free from addiction by the power of Jesus Christ!   We’ll hear some of that testimony and hear about new music Love and Death.

Skillet And Stryper To Share The Stage In Minnesota This Summer

Two huge bands that begin with “S” from two different eras will share the same stage soon:

Skillet…which began in the mid to late 1990’s and has never stopped rockin’…

And a resurgent 80’s band that lead singer John Cooper grew up listening to as part of his Christian metal album collection:  Stryper.

Skillet will be headlining Friday night September 10th at the Rocktember Fest in Hinckley, Minnesota.  Immediately preceding Skillet will be Stryper.   The rest of the bands at the fest are secular hard rock.

The timing is a bit ironic.  Cooper had recently been spotted in public by a casual music fan who said (paraphrasing) “You look familiar…aren’t you in that band…that Christian rock band…Stryper?”

Well, in case you have any trouble telling the bands apart (LOL) here is your chance to clearly differentiate between the two.

We’re not 100 percent sure, but at press time, we believe this is the first time these two bands have shared the same stage on the same night.
