Product Description

The Benjamin Gate ~ Untitled

Amazon.com

ForeFront Records' newest act--The Benjamin Gate--is in keeping with the label's tradition of introducing truly cutting-edge Christian sounds. With a roaring chorus of guitars and singer Adrienne Liesching's enigmatic vocals, this South African fivesome cover new ground on the musical map. Sure you'll listen to the call-and-answer choruses by Liesching on "All Over Me" and think about the Cranberries, or, for older fans, maybe even Siouxsie and the Banshees. But the similarities end with the Godly message stamped on each riveting rocker. Think Christian bands can't shake sonic foundations? Check out the fury of "Lay It Down" or the enthralling alternative rocker "Secret." And for those quieter moments, the Gate gives us the lonely sounding and moving ballad "Hands." It may take a few listens to grow on you, but this release is a thoughtful and dynamic debut for a world that sorely needs it. --Michael Lyttle

Customer Reviews

Great music with a wonderful message!
Lovingmom
They really valued creativity in their songwriting, and a lot of heavy industrial influence makes this album fantastic.
Hannah Rose Williams
It's a must have, whether you like Christian or punk rock, or both.

The music of the Benjamin Gate fits somewhere between alternative and techno-industrial, and is very similar to non-Christian artists like Garbage and Bjork. "Untitled" is incredible! With songs like "How Long" and "Lay It Down" on this album, you simply cannot go wrong in adding this one to your music collection. What makes the Benjamin Gate so great is not just that they are great musicians, but that their faith is real and is evident in the music they produce. You're not getting just a great mix of music, but songs that are both challenging and encouraging!

For alternative rock fans, Untitled is the best stuff out there in 2001. I can't think of a single current secular band, with the possible exception of The Catherine Wheel, that has the sonic complexity and creativity of The Benjamin Gate. Superficially, the vocals resemble the Cranberries, but the music is an innovative blend of techno-industrial electronica and anthemic rock like early U2.
I hope Benjamin's Gate gets a wide hearing outside the Christian community, because they have 100 times the energy, creativity, and emotionally-cathartic quality of any of the current radio bands. They'd make an excellent opening band for U2.

The Benjamin Gate has its own sound, its own voice, its own style. They aren't a rip off of some other band, unfortunately, like too many other Christian bands. I compare Benjamin Gate to Starflyer 59, not in sound, but in a shared willingness to stake out new ground style wise. The integration of guitars and quasi-electronica is seemless and organic, as are the transitions between slow, medium, and thrashing songs. The guitars are active, pronounced, aggressive, without over-hyped "Rap-metal" distortion that is so tediously common in today's music scene. Adrienne's voice is the connector between the different styles, as she can go out all Rock Goddess on "Blow My Mind" and "Lay It Down" and then softly provoke tears w/ the piano-driven "Hands".
A terrific band that deserved and deserves more appreciation.

Glitter studded guitars, strobe lights, and smooth vocals are what makes up the concert performance of The Benjamin Gate, an amazing Christian band from South Africa. Ok, so maybe you can't get the strobe lights and guitars with the CD, but you can get Adrienne's amazing voice backed by three awesome guitarists and one jamming drummer. Songs like "Halo" and "All Over Me" will have you rockin' for hours (it's all I could do to get myself to turn the stereo off after the third run of the CD!) It's a must have, whether you like Christian or punk rock, or both. This is one CD you won't regret buying!

This is the most creative music i've ever heard. It's so good, i've played it virtualy every minute of every day since i bought it. (three weeks ago) The music style is so original that i need to play it constantly so i can sing it in my head when i'm not near a CD player. It's heavy heavy rock, yet I find it peaceful enough to sleep with it on. The amazing female vocals surrounded by distorted guitar, and electronic sounds, flow so smoothly into my head that it sounds new everytime i listen. There is no bad song on this CD. Benjamin Gate, give me more!!!!!

We are unfortunately in a time where Christian musicians are doing everything that they can to keep the fact that they are Christians from somehow seeping out in their lyrics. The Benjamin Gate has decided to go against the flow with "Untitled". It is so great to hear someone sing songs that you don't have to wonder if they are singing about God or another person, there is no doubt that they love and are singing about God.
The other thing that makes this album stand out above most others is the music that it contains. This is energetic and original music. This is one of the few albums that as soon as I purchased it I had to listen to it over and over just so I could get the music stamped in my head permanently. The guitar work is phenomenal, and the vocals give the music a slightly eerie feeling. The loops don't dominate, but accentuate. This is modern music at its finest.
Here is what I think may be the one flaw this album will have. It is TOO good. This is not the typical pap that normally makes it in the Christian realm. I have seen this happen with great and original albums before, Leaderdogs for the Blind is an example. This album is just so far beyond what passes for great music with most Christians that they may get passed up. Don't make that mistake, this is an album you will cherish.

As soon as I heard "All Over Me" on a sampler CD, I bought The Benjamin Gate's "Untitled". This CD has not left me disappointed. I like it because it breaks away from the traditional styles of Christian music and brings listeners a fresh, different sound. I enjoy every song on the album. I listen to it quite a bit, and I haven't grown tired of it yet!
I am a big fan of The Cranberries, but I'm an even bigger fan of The Benjamin Gate because of their love for God and Christian message! I'll be the first to buy their new album when it comes out!
