This blog is no longer active. My life has taken turns that have left me with no extra time or energy to devote to this blog's maintenance and the uploading of additional content. I do continue to receive and respond to comments on posts on the blog, through email, and on Facebook. I still love to listen to old Christian hardcore albums, as well as reminisce about and discuss these bands. I hope this blog continues to serve as a valuable resource on the subject, which keeps me bound to continuously replying to incoming emails with requests for downloads whose links on the blog are no longer functioning. This is no problem and I am happy to continue offering such a favor. If a link doesn't work then contact me.

All the music posted on this blog belongs to the artists. It's all on this blog for the solely to spark memories, discover Christian hardcore bands you never knew existed, and to be a reminder to go and search for and purchase these records! Please, if you enjoy any of the records featured here then try to get your hands on a physical copy. If you are associated with any band on this blog and would like me to either remove the links to downloads of your music or not be featured on this blog at all then please just email me.

Looking for rare Saved by Grace stuff

Saved by Grace recorded two songs for a split they did with The Esoteric back in 2002 titled Roads Between.  The split was released by hand on tour in 2002, but when approaching a legitimate release through Anxiety Records, Saved by Grace apparently backed out of the deal due to issues with their vocalist who sadly hanged himself later on in 2010.

I heard these two tracks by Saved by Grace back when they originally posted them online before the release and they were super heavy and super good.  I regret not going about the appropriate paths to obtaining them for myself, because now I absolutely can not find them anywhere online.  If ANYONE has access to these two tracks by the band, or the entire split with The Esoteric, please contact me!

Thanks guys.

By the way, I have A LOT of stuff I plan to post on here sometime soon.  Life has been busy and gotten in the way, but once I get all the stuff sorted out, I'll get it ripped onto my computer and posted on here.


  1. I remember listening to Our Solemn Season Ends song,but never actually heard the full release,also SBG's full length cd was awesome
    RIP Josh

  2. Nice work .Thanks for the share. Keep up writing so that we can get more informative blogs like this one.

  3. hey, not sure if this will be seen...

    my name is jason shrout, i played drums in saved by grace. i have a hard copy of the split with the esoteric (the version with the blue cover). that version was the tour version for the coalesce/esoteric tour in 2002. sbg played the kc (lawrence, ks, specifically) date of that tour which was the tour kickoff. that version was available at that show and on the following tour. sbg never got any copies for us to sell. we only got personal copies for each of us on that night. the first cover art that you posted was the actual version that was released later on after the tour was over. the original version was hand numbered and all. pretty rad. anyway, those two songs were the first songs written by the band after the full length (for what you have done, recorse records). those songs hinted at what the band was progressing into. very heavy parts ala turmoil and more harvest worship, but with the spacey/melodic stuff ala cave in. there were another probably 7 or 8 songs written after this split that were never recorded, but were played live. so if you saw us on tour, especially the 2002 and 2003 timeframe, you would have seen almost all newer stuff and maybe one or two songs from for what you have done in the set. anyway, im rambling. ive been planning on making an SBG facebook, so that there will be a central place for pictures and memories, etc.

    if anyone wants to contact me, i can get you files of the songs from the split. just hit me up at my facebook page. then backslash then xcrujonesx or search for me - Jason Shrout - Kansas City, MO

    or there is always the old fashioned email way, backslash xcrujonesx
