Dave is the host/producer of The Covenant Metal Show, a weekly ministry dedicated to bringing you the BEST Christian rock and metal from yesterday, and today! The show also brings you the Word of God, as well as an Altar Call to come accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Dave grew up on the heavy metal of the 80's, and was very much influenced by the music. In 2005, he co-founded a heavy metal band called Fighting Blind, and gigged extensively throughout the Albuquerque, New Mexico area. In early 2012, he co-founded the metal band RIZIN (pronounced Risen). The band released one studio album, "In Ruins", released in December of 2012. Dave was the main lyricist for the band, and has a talent for writing powerful lyrics. RIZIN disbanded in the summer of 2013, and Dave sought out other musical opportunities, and eventually retired from bands. In January of 2015, Dave felt led to start a radio show, and The Covenant Metal Show was born.
