Ten years ago “They Want You Silent” was released by one of the scene’s most impressive and timely bands, Bloodlined Calligraphy. Fans and media were dually impressed and the album garnered praise from Revolver, AP, Outburn and more. 2005 was a great year for some now classic Facedown releases, and this BLC album was definitely among the top. The band’s live show was an energetic powerhouse of metalcore, and vocalist Ally French could hold her own as the face of the band and one of very few female vocalists in the metal scene.
The band experienced a crushing blow when bass player and founding member Eric Cargile died suddenly in his sleep at the age of 30 on April 20, 2010. Since Eric’s death the band has withdrawn from the stage, but “They Want You Silent” remains a bright spot on the Facedown Records Legacy.

Leroy Hamp waxes lyrical on the five-year anniversary of “Eternal.”
It’s hard to believe 5 years have passed since the release of Eternal. What is even more impressive is how much our fans have grown in experience and leadership collectively since this release as evidenced by the stories shared on WOA social media sites. They’re an amazing testimony to how Christ has impacted our fans and we are honored to have played even a small part in this. Remember that our earthly lives are temporary, but life with Christ is ETERNAL. Happy 5 years!
