Never knew much about New Jersey's Redeem at all. Honestly, I can't even remember how I heard of them, was 10 or so years ago, I was way young. All I know is that they released one record, a full length titled Diadem of Beauty in 1999 on Sofa Records, a label that I believe may have been lost in time. I never saw Redeem, never seen a picture of a show or seen a show flyer with their name on it, but I remember hearing from some older dudes at my church when I was young saying Redeem was insane live. For the longest time, I couldn't find Redeem's stuff because if we all can remember, hardcore wasn't so commercial and all over the internet. I didn't even have internet back then anyway ha. Anyway, I do know that a few of the members in Redeem went on to be in Kissing the Hands of Wrath, another New Jersey act, much more metal influenced though. If you liked when Zao came out with their Where Blood and Fire Bring Rest record in 1998, then you'll be way into Redeem and their Diadem of Beauty record.
