Christian symphonic metal bands and projects are a rare find. This is mostly in part due to the complexity of the genre. Reflection of Glory is a symphonic metal project that masterfully harnesses the genre to glorify Christ. Far from being an "alternative" to bands such as Nightwish, Kamelot, and Epica; Reflection of Glory has a unique sound and approach to the genre.
Having earned a degree in music, Barry started as a singer-songwriter and his first album "Bird's Eye View" demonstrates these abilities. He has released two other albums, one of which is an instrumental Christmas album that presents a fresh take on ancient songs of Christmas that evoke the wonder of the miracle of the birth of Christ. His most recent album "Reborn" is a full-blown Symphonic Metal project that contains well constructed compositions, skilled guitar riffs, and eloquently penned lyrics that glorify God.

Revelation Attic is more than symphonic metal. It is a place above where you can go to find out more about yourself and more about God. Intense guitar riffs, intricate vocals, and pensive lyrics supported by a foundation of masterful bass guitar work create an atmosphere that challenges the listener to think beyond what is visible to the human eye.
The music of Revelation Attic is a result of the Rasa and Guntis; a power-couple whose musical collaboration evolved into a beautiful romance. Rasa's vocals are intricate and controled with precision. Her influences inculde: Sinead O'Connor, The Cranberries, and Kate Bush. Not only is she the voice of Revelation Attic, she writes the lyrics for their songs.
Guntis is the composer, guitarist, and bass player. His abilities on bass exceed what is common to the metal genre. His influences include: Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, and KISS. He has been able to take the nuances of bass that are associated with classic rock and interweave it into the metal genre.
A perfect tapestry of heavy guitar riffs, intense rhythyms, and positive lyrics best describes the music of Red Calling.
