If you are a fan of Oh, Sleeper or metal, you will not be disappointed by this album.
KellyisGhost
While the album's lyrics are indeed powerful, its musical intensity is just as unforgiving.
A Customer
This one is probably my favorite of theirs, a little lighter on parts, but very very good.

There are some albums that should never been taken at mere face value, like Touche Amore's Parting the Sea Between Brightness & Me, Defeater's Empty Days & Sleepless Nights and...well, any Oh, Sleeper album.

If you know Oh, Sleeper`s previous material, then you know that their provocation through seemingly blasphemous lyrics, imagery, album titles, etc. is very much intentional. They want you to dig further. They're practically begging you to look deeper in to their message, opposed to just scratching the surface. Their third full length album, Children Of Fire, is no different. In fact, I think I've dug deeper into this album than any of their previous releases.

Children Of Fire--the band's first album featuring new drummer Zac Mayfield and bass player Nate Grady--is a full concept album that begins where their previous album, Son Of The Morning, left off. It creates a scenario where humanity believes God and Satan are both dead, and people begin to live without concern for their actions. It follows a Christian father and his atheist daughter as they question what they believe (or don't believe). I don't want to reveal too much about the album's concept here, but let's just say it doesn't progress the way you would expect.

Lyrically, this album doesn't hold back. With such rage-fueled exclamations like "I'll marry a blade to his throat!", "Make my grave or animate my veins!", "I saw God die!", "Now cut, cut until the head comes off!

Have loved Oh, Sleeper since just about the beginning...ever since they released their album When I Am God. Quality material! I have not missed an Oh, Sleeper release since! I actually preordered this album. Oh Sleeper has grown to become one of those bands in my book that I no longer have to listen to any material by them to know that the music they release is going to be good...I already know it, and the same goes for this album. This album simply kicks @$$! If you're into metalcore music or just metal music in general, I highly recommend checking these guys out! Choice listening!

When I Am God was impressive, Son of the Morning was terrific, and Children of Fire is nothing short of amazing. This album is brutal, technical, and beautiful, and the band's story-weaving prowess has reached a brilliant new level. Oh, Sleeper also experimented with a couple of acoustic tracks this time around, and they're a delight.

I'm a huge August Burns Red fan, but this is hands down better than Leveler.

I truly loved Son Of The Morning, so I wondered what Oh, Sleeper would do that could top it... I was actually kind of worried about a "junior" rather than a "sophomore slump". Well, I realized I worried for nothing after I heard Children Of Fire for the first time! I have to say that this album, while having lyrics that tell wonderful stories with challenging subjects, rests squarely on the shoulders of lead shred-meister Shane Blay. I dare say Shane has spent the time since SOTM in his woodshed... and it's walls must be splattered with the vestages of unused riffs and solos that most bands would kill to have as the foundation of one of their songs.
The OS guys have crafted an album packed with songs that make you feel... and I mean more than just the ringing in your ears. Songs like "Hush Yael" (which as a dad tears my guts out every time it plays... but I just can't hit the "skip" button) and "The Family Ruin" underscore what's truly wrong with us as people and a society. Then, Oh, Sleeper brings you thought provoking hope and faith again with tracks like "Children of Fire" and "Means to Believe" (which was originally written for Blay's solo project, Anullaby).

This is an album that punches you square in the mouth and screams "LISTEN TO ME!" I suggest you do what it says!

Top Tracks: "Endseekers", "The Family Ruin", "Children of Fire"

If you are a fan of Oh, Sleeper or metal, you will not be disappointed by this album. The album definetely makes its point through its music and lyrics. The reason I became a fan of this artist was for its lyrics, as the music was initally a little too hard for my liking. What drew me in was being completely confused by an album titled "When I Am God." I listened to it for a while and it grew on me. So I read the lyrics after listening. Now that I've grown accustumed to the sound, I can see how technical and carefully woven all the albums are from Oh, Sleeper. I hope this may help people who would otherwise be deterred by this type of music give it a chance.

I can't seem to stop listening to this CD, it is truly a work of art. The grueling screams combined with melodic singing, the trash found in the background such as in 'Hush Yael', deep base, insane guitars, and phenomenal drumming are an accurate discription of of sound for this album--Though, I doubt I can find the right words without making this an extremely lengthy review to explain it better. Thanks for another amazing piece of work, and we will be looking forward for more! If you are looking for something to listen to that makes you think a little, or feel like you've had some sort of experience, this is your band.
