Sorry for the Delay!

Life is always busy for us all, but for some reason the past few months have been really busy for those of us here at DTL. So this issue is extremely delayed and for that we apologize. We would like to get these out more often, but such is life.

For this issue Josh had the idea of doing lists of our favorite albums of 2012. This proved to be harder than it sounded, but we came up with some interesting lists for you. Not to mention the return of the “Tattoo You” feature on Sid’s Tattoo parlor. There are a ton of reviews and news bits this issue, so make sure to check them all out.

Action Spotlight:

Don’t just complain about the world – do something to change it

Freedom Firm is “dedicated to the liberation of children enslaved in commercial sexual exploitation, to their effective rehabilitation, and to justice against those who have profited from their misery. We unapologetically stand dedicated to this cause and this cause alone. We are motivated by our faith in God to conduct our work with the highest ethical standards and to allocate our resources with uncompromising stewardship. We believe that every person has immeasurable value and therefore the exploitation of any person is an unacceptable violation of their God-given value.” See www.freedom.firm.in for more details.

(Freedom Firm did not buy this ad nor do they endorse this magazine – just givin’ ya food for thought)

Down the Line covers bands that explored the intersection between faith and art in the 1980s through the early 1990s – even though they were probably never accepted in to what is called “Contemporary Christian Music” because they were too edgy or alternative or liberal or for whatever reason. Some of these bands may still be making music today, and others may have moved on. We cover these bands (active or dormant) as well as any new projects by former members of these bands and any new bands that may have the same spirit as these bands.
