CHRISTIAN MISTRESS: Full Album Streaming Now; North American Tour Approaches

Agony & Opium — the debut release from Olympia, Washington-based metal act CHRISTIAN MISTRESS — is streaming now in its entirety on Decibel Magazine’s website! Tune in now to check out these six tracks of thunderous, purely infectious, classic heavy metal:

Still a fairly brand new act, CHRISTIAN MISTRESS have created a massive stir in recent weeks, building up to and following the recent arrival of Agony & Opium, which was released on August 24th via Olympia’s 20 Buck Spin label. Jacking tons of fresh and unique energy into a classic style, the band are quickly becoming known internationally via incredible media and fan response to the album.

CHRISTIAN MISTRESS are also preparing for their massive two-month North American venture alongside Thrones kicking off later this month, which will surely help catapult this band to even higher levels of appreciation from their new and soon-to-be new fans. Get ready!

Promos of Agony & Opium as well as interviews with several members of CHRISTIAN MISTRESS are available now via phone and email.
