Formed in the summer of 2015 by two sound engineer friends at their local church, and a lifetime friend, Becoming Sons has already opened for national touring acts such as, Disciple, and Kutless. With a music style they dub, "metalpraisecore", Becoming Sons brings an aggressiveness to Christian music.

Roger Garza, frontman of the "Sons", was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. He has played in multiple metal and hardcore bands throughout his career but took a 10 year period to focus on leading worship for local San Antonio churches. "If you shall know the truth, the truth will set you free" John 8:32. This verse is what motivates him to continue the ministry of reaching out and spreading the truth that Jesus Christ is king. With his return back to metal music scene, he is hoping to reach to many of the lost.
Chris Rodriguez, Lead Guitarist of "Becoming Sons", was born and raised in San Antonio, TX. He has been playing guitar for 22 years. Plays many other instruments, as well as many other styles of music. He first came to be called by Christ in 2005 during a Bible study being held at his parents house, and there became his journey. With his addition into Becoming Sons, he is hoping to continue his ministry, career, and through his God-given talents, plant the seed of the Good News to hungry ears.

Brian's solidness makes him the backbone of the band. He is active in community service, as well as serving local churches with volunteering.

Roger Stack, drummer for Becoming Sons, and founder of the band, has been an active drummer since his high school days. Roger served in the Marine Corps after playing in Hollowpoint with Brian Derby. He lived abroad for many years before returning to Texas to form a secular band called, Stimple. Although a professional, successful band, Roger felt the need to walk away, and commit his life to Christ.
"I walked away and I made a lot of people who I thought were my friends, angry. One guy said ( won't mention names) that's just like a (expletive) Christian. Some were in disbelief, maybe two respected my decision. It was weird, but it felt like a heavy weight was lifted."
He gave his life to Christ, and was baptized by immersion in 2010, and ever since been on fire for the Lord. Utilizing his drumming skills for praise, and briefly playing in the Christian praise band, Rev14, Roger formed Becoming Sons, and has never looked back.
He is an unashamed Christian, ordained Deacon, wanting to take Becoming Sons wherever God wills, and spread the gospel to every creature, through heavy music.
