Saving Grace


New Zealand's Saving Grace are the latest band to ink a deal with Strike First, the Facedown Records imprint which helps to develop and foster brand new bands before upstreaming them to Facedown proper.

"Signing with Strike First Records is a dream come true for us," guitarist Vasely Sapunov told Noisecreep. "We grew up listening to their bands, and we couldn't be more happy."

This signing serves as a true introduction to Saving Grace. Sapunov describes his band as "brutal metallic hardcore with big breakdowns and a lot of Euro vibes. Our sound is influenced by everyone from Slayer and Arkangel to the Wu-Tang Clan and Impending Doom ... everything we do is for the glory of God." Even if you don't like message-driven hardcore, the music is still powerful enough to capture your attention!
