Metal Helm serves as the storefront for what used to be the Nokternal Hemizphear Record label and merchandise. Metal Helm is a full-on mailorder webshop that includes official licensing and distribution services along with a trustworthy consignment program for all labels and bands that want to get more exposure! It is our desire to see the power of the Almighty Creator praised through the music and merch that is promoted through Metal Helm.
The name Metal Helm is based off of the Ephesian's verse "Take the helmet (or helm) of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.", Ephesians 6:17 (NIV). Aside from the metal music elements associated within the logo, the symbolism of the Metal Helm logo coincides with the biblical eternal truths that Metal Helm lives by.
Ephesians 6:10-17 (NIV): Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Metal Helm Mission Statement:
Utilizing music and art, Metal Helm exists to supply and promote biblically-sound messages that seek to reach out to a dying world, uplift the weary, and enrich the faithful. The goal of Metal Helm is to bring glory to the Eternal King and Savior Jesus Christ and to connect with a world desperately in need of the healing truth of God's ancient and timeless Word.
About Metal Helm:
Our passion and God-driven purpose is to spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the four corners of the earth. In doing so, the Lord directed our paths to cross and eventually for a greater sense of unity within the Christian music industry to form. Seeking to see Christian metal and rock music and merchandise to have a deeper impact in the world Starve the Flesh Clothing (RIP) and Nokternal Hemizphear Records created Metal Helm. Now, Metal Helm is an online store front that fully supports the missional objectives of Nokternal Hemizphear Records and Forge a Legacy ministry.
Metal Helm is owned and operated by Christian warriors that have surrendered their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ and believe that He is the Son of God who died on the cross to save us from our sins (should we choose to believe it) and that He has eternal power and dominion over everything. We wholeheartedly believe that there is good and evil, Jesus and Satan, therefore, we are in the midst of a massive cosmic battle that has been raging since before the time of man, when Lucifer (now Satan) arrogantly rebelled under the notion that he could usurp God's omnipotent supremacy and thus was thrown out of heaven along with his fallen angels upon their dismal defeat during the war in the heavenly realms (Revelation 12:7-9). So, let it be known that we are to "Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." Ephesians 6:11 (NIV).
