The 728th Soundtrack of the Week is the music from Electric Jesus which is mostly, I think, by someone called Daniel Smith.

It's on multi-color splatter vinyl!

Electric Jesus is a movie about a fictional Christian rock band and so, you know, Smith had to come up with a bunch of songs not just for that band but other bands in the scene.

Since it takes place in the mid-'80s, heavy metal hair bands were more or less the target.

The film's subject is a band called 316, and so naturally they are most represented, but there are several other bands, including Danielson (which is also Daniel Smith), Bloody Mass, Soul Exhumation, Satan's Clutch and Joy Explosion.

A lot of these songs are really great!

I hadn't heard of Smith before but I'm impressed.
