Statistics 2017

Holy Cross Epic Church Guerreiros Paulistas Gunstar Music Metal Electronic Gothic Brazil Paulista Christian CDs
2017 was a calm but very productive year for CYBER10. More than ever the songs were streamed resulting in very good numbers, also the buying of music grew too and those things weren't due to new releases (because there were just a few) but because people are discovering our music little by little. The only free-download compilation released this year was a new volume of METAL STORM, featuring mostly bands which were already part of previous volumes of this series but they took part now with new songs, a kind of revival (more info below). We want to thank your support and may God bless your 2018 (with a loud music, for sure).   Emerson Olaf

Keepers of the Cross III (part of METAL STORM series) was the only free-download compilation released this year, it has only Christian metal bands and was made in a tribute to the 500 years of Protestant Reformation.

This compilation release is a special album in tribute to the anniversary of 7 years of the debut CD of Epic Church. This compilation gathers the more electro-rock/futurepop oriented songs of Epic Church, some of them in exclusive versions not found in any album else. This release is physical CD only, not digital.

CYBER10 Metal Storm VIII - Keepers of the Cross III

Being the only free-download compilation to be produced in 2017, this third volume of Metal Storm keeps the tradition initiated in 2011 of a compilation only with Christian metal bands . Five years after producing the last volume (second) of "Keepers of the Cross" I contacted some old friends and they responded positively about being part of a new compilation, which gave me motivation to put the idea into reality one more time. This volume brings power / heavy metal, symphonic metal, melodic metal, a bit of extreme metal and many tracks were remastered for this compilation. This release is also coming out exactly on October 31st 2017 in a tribute to the Protestant Reformation which completes 500 years.
