Get a load of this, kiddos! For those of you who grew up in the 1990’s and think you have heard the best of Christian extreme metal from the band nowadays, you have not heard anything until you have jumped back in time and experienced the bluntly, brutal onslaught of fearless warriors like Haven! This self-titled album is one of our favorites from our youth! Guaranteed to become one of your favorites as well! Dark, melodic, thrash metal that cuts to the core. Check out the track “Blood of the Lamb” – one of our most favorite songs in ALL of metal for ALL time sake! (Metal Helm/Nokternal Hemizphear Records)

1991's Age of Darkness is the second (and final) album from Christian metallers Haven. Before you conjure up images of Stryper, you'd do well to give this one a chance. Where a band like Barren Cross drew its influences from Dio and Iron Maiden, Haven's sound owes more to a certain Seattle sound (no, not that one). I'm talking about bands like Queensryche, Fifth Angel, and Metal Church.

Age of Darkness is a very impressive traditional/power metal album, full of great melodies, shredding guitars, and a Geoff Tate-inspired vocal style. There are a couple instances of Dokken-style balladeering, but for the most part this is a fast paced power metal album that should please fans of Apocrypha, Powersurge, Crimson Glory, and any of the bands mentioned earlier. Haven is a Christian band, but they're not overly "churchy" with their lyrics, so Age of Darkness shouldn't alienate the average metal fan. Believe me; this one's much more likely to induce headbanging than Bible-thumping!

The 2017 reissue of Age of Darkness on Retroactive Records sees this classic album on vinyl for the very first time! Both Vinyl and CD have been digitally remastered to perfection by Rob Colwell of Bombworks Sound!
