Before Stephen McBean was in Black Mountain, Pink Mountaintops, Obliterations or Jerk with a Bomb, the BC musician spent the '80s in the Victoria thrash metal group Mission of Christ. The band were briefly signed to Metal Blade Records, though they were dropped before they could get their album out. Now, their long-lost material is finally getting released.

Supreme Echo is compiling the band's demos on a new album called Silence in Grave. The material, which was originally recorded between 1987 and 1989, has been remixed by Converge's Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studio and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege.

Further, the band's 1986 promotional cassette tape will be reissued on a 7-inch entitled Realms of Evil. That will be packaged with Silence in Grave alongside some expansive liner notes.
