How did I get to know the band: Again, Metal Devastation Radio is responsible for this review. I have to grab Christian rock, I don't want to withhold the fun from myself or you.
How do I find the disc: I thought it would be cruel, but hear for yourself:
I AM FREE starts out pretty old-school. The song could also be from the 80s, but somehow it seems like they have soldered three different songs together into an intro. The singing doesn't sound bad, but I'm missing the fire here. The text basically says that I should read a poorly written fantasy book and stick to the nonsense that is in it. No thanks.
I FELL IN LOVE (SWEET AS CANDY) gives me smoke on the water flashbacks. The bass is really cool, but the rest of the song is safe to shred. It's nice when the band is in love with Jesus, the guy can stay stolen from me. So on to the next track.
ON THE WAY TO THE PROMISE LAND stays true to style. Stale songwriting, plus a good portion of Christian stuff. This is about the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. I find the line particularly significant: “Never question, the Lords intentions. He know what's best for you. ”They couldn't have incorporated better advertising for the Church of Satan.
SPIRIT IN THE SKY ends the EP and slowly I have to wipe the blood from my ears. The song sounds like Ned Flanders formed a band to counter the satanic effects of rock. And when I want to hear Flanders Rock, I put on Okilly Dokilly. This will probably not convert anyone to Christianity, but they do make some money in the USA, especially in the Bible Belt.
Conclusion: just cruel. I don't know if this is worse than Riveting Truth or not. And to be honest, I don't listen to either of them anymore. So if you really like this kind of crap, you can listen here, I advise against everyone else: - Full Metal Mayhem
