This month has seen a few awesome releases in the realm of Christian metal from some of my favorite bands.
On Tuesday April 10th Demon Hunter released their 6th full album, True Defiance. This album is similarly in the vein of their last release, which boldly addressed the challenges of the post-modern world in topics ranging from neopaganism to Christian persecution.
“With every turn I fail to learn my path and it’s wearing down my days
To be the voice of a half-dead, suffering age / A never-ending seek that I chase to find my way.”- God Forsaken
Last week, Tuesday April 17th, Thousand Foot Krutch released The End is Where We Begin. The whole album is a winner in my opinion.
“I feel a million miles away, still you connect me in your way
And you created me, something I would’ve never seen
When I can only see the floor, you made my window a door
So when they say they don’t believe, I hope that they see you and me” - Be Somebody
And today, Tuesday April 24th (I see a pattern here), War of Ages released Return to Life. This cd just plainly isn’t for the faint of heart. From the intro of Immortal throughout the rest of the cd I had goosebumps. Then again, I’ve also acquired the taste to like this kind of music. Many probably won’t like it if they haven’t been exposed to metalcore before, but for those of us that do, this is one to appreciate.
