Roxx Records is very excited to welcome U.S. metal band True Strength to the roster for a proper re-issue of latest album “Steel Evangelist.”

True Strength’s sophomore album “Steel Evangelist” was independently released digitally back in May. Upon that original release, “Steel Evangelist” suffered from production quality issues due to budgetary restrictions.

However, all of this changed when the band was signed by Roxx Records as Bill Roxx put the band in touch with engineer Cliffy Walker (guitarist of Christian punk band The Huntingtons) to remaster the album, and this new version is like night and day in comparison to the original.

Roxx Records will be releasing the “Steel Evangelist” album in CD format for the first time ever with completely new cover artwork designed by Scott Waters. The updated and remastered version will also be re-released digitally with the new cover artwork and will be called “Steel Evangelist – Roxx Records Edition.” This new edition will be released everywhere on February 17th, 2017.

– January 31st, 2017 –

Featuring members of Between the Buried and Me, Haken, Trioscapes, Cynic; launches first single, “Dancing Machines”

On March 10th, Nova Collective (featuring members of Between the Buried and Me, Haken, Trioscapes, Cynic) will release their debut album, The Further Side, via Metal Blade Records. Nova Collective‘s music can be described as fusion, weaving progressive rock influences with world music, jazz and classical, to create something entirely new that is pure aural candy for prog/jazz fans. For a preview of The Further Side, the first single, “Dancing Machines”, can be heard at: – where the album can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:
–Black 180g LP
–Clear-red marble LP (limited to 200 copies!)
*digital options are also available!

Nova Collective began in 2014 when bassist Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me, Trioscapes) and guitarist Richard Henshall (Haken) began exchanging emails about music; before long, a few demos were fleshed out into full arrangements. Drummer Matt Lynch (Trioscapes, Cynic) and keyboardist Pete Jones (ex-Haken) came on board shortly after to finish writing the album. The Further Side was written on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, with Briggs and Lynch in America and Henshall and Jones in England, sharing session files until the group could get together at the beginning of 2015 to record with engineer Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, The Contortionist). Mixed by Rich Mouser (Neal Morse, Transatlantic), it is immediately clear that The Further Side is a labor of love for all involved, and that enthusiasm shines throughout.

Nova Collective line-up:
Dan Briggs – Bass
Matt Lynch – Drums
Pete Jones – Keyboards
Richard Henshall – Guitar
