Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh, better known as GFM, is a hardcore faith-based metal band out of Jacksonville, Florida that has accomplished so much in such a short period of time.
GFM have created their own genre of metal, which they affectionately call “beautycore.” They have topped the Christian Music Weekly chart for four weeks straight, and have gone to #6 and #9 on Billboard‘s Christian Hard Rock chart.
In this in-depth interview with CJ, Maggie, and LuLu, they talk about what it’s like to be part of the rock and roll lifestyle as Christians, how they are preparing for their futures, how their unique songwriting process works, and more!

Hello everyone! My name is Scott Itter, but some know me as Dr. Music. I am a music journalist and photographer out of the Chicagoland area, and I have been in practice for over 20 years. I grew up in the 70’s with two big brothers that showed me all kinds of rock and roll. As I grew older I ventured out into different genres like jazz, funk, folk, and whatever else I could wrap my ears around. As I read every liner note and every Circus and Hit Parader like they were the Old and New Testament, I came to realize that I just love sound and appreciate all the people that create it.
I later became a stay-at-home dad and started honing my writing and photography skills to keep my mind from turning into mashed peas. My kids are now adults, my mind is only slightly mushy, and I am thrilled to have the honor of presenting my work to you!
