The front of the cd wrapper said "if you like skillet, thousand foot krutch, and pod, then you'll like Since October", part of that statement is true, you'll definitely like Since October, which isn't saying that I don't like those other bands, I just don't know enough about them to make the comparison. I like it that the lyrics are understandable, and the music is exciting and makes you want to rock out. The songs are to the point and relateable, but not too preachy. I guess this cd is labeled "christian", but anyone who just likes great music and well-written songs, should definitely get this one, because, it's awesome. I don't have any thing bad to say about this cd, if you get a chance to see them live, you should go, they are fantastic.
I loved every song on this album. At times I wish the vocals on a few tracks were just a tad bit louder than the bass so I could make out every word but otherwise great sounds, vocals and themes. I found out about this band by accident but I knew I liked them as soon as I saw the 'Disaster' music video and heard their sound. This is their first but it's so well put together. It was a great buy for me and I really suggest you pick up their album.
Just saw these guys playing friday (Feb 6th) live on the Saliva tour and to be honest until they hit the stage I had never heard of them but they put on a damned good show and won me over
Forget that it's christian rock and just listen its just a really good band they may not get the attention the deserve because of the Christian rock classification but they are a very solid band and put on a very good show on top of that they're all really cool and very nice people I got to talk to the drummer the most by far one of the coolest musicians I've met
Hopefully they come through my area again so I can see them again until then the cd will have to do
I've had this album for a couple of months now and haven't had time to go through it as thoroughly as I would have liked to by now. But after giving it a few good listens, I am highly impressed with this debut. There really is not a bad song on here, and anybody who likes Modern Rock will absolutely fall in love with this record. It rocks from start to finish, only slowing down a couple of times for two mellow songs but the assault does not come derailed because of those. I absolutely recommend this to anybody looking for some refreshing high energy rock.
I love this album. If you like Christian hard rock, such as Red, Skillet or Decyfer Down, you'll love this album. I'm always looking for good Christian hard rock. These guys are right up there on the top of my list. The only thing I don't like is the lyrics of the song "Disaster." I absolutely love the music in this song. However, it seems to me as though they are saying that God causes disaster in peoples' lives in order to help them in some way, or teach them something. Which is totally untrue. "Thank God for disaster..." is part of their chorus. God never causes disaster in our lives. Read Jeremiah 29:11. Also, never get the OLD and NEW testament confused. We live in a different covenant than those in the old testament. God never causes bad things in our lives, however, He can turn them around for good if they happen. But He is NEVER the author of disaster. God wants the best for all of us. If disaster happens, He will do all in His power to turn it around and use it for good somehow; but that is all "according to the power that works in us" (Ephesians 3:20). He is never the cause of disaster.....ever. Maybe this is really the message they meant to portray in their lyrics. I'm not really sure. Their video seems to hint towards that possibly. But anyways, it is a great album. They have a heart for God; which is awesome.
This is a GREAT album!!! Pick it up, download it, or do whatever you need to get this album. You will not be disappointed. If you like Red, Pillar, etc., you will enjoy this album...whether you are a Christian or not, or if you are just looking for something fresh, then check these guys out. Be blessed!!!
