A popular 1966 poem, “Please Hear What I’m Not Saying,” begs the reader, Don’t be fooled by the face I wear, for I wear a mask . . . I tell you everything that’s really nothing, and nothing of what’s everything, of what’s crying within me.

Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

"We all wear masks," says McNevan, setting the stage for his band's theatrical new work. "We hide what we don't want people to know we're thinking or feeling. And that's easy to get away with when life is so busy. A lot of times, we have no idea what's really going on in the life of the person right beside us."

Product Description

Thousand Foot Krutch is back with their most ambitious release to date, Welcome To The Masquerade, produced by Aaron Sprinkle (The Almost, Anberlin, Demon Hunter) and mixed by Randy Staub (Nickelback, Metallica). The album is anchored by the radio singles 'Forward Motion' and 'Bring Me To Life. Thousand Foot Krutch has sold a half-million copies to date of their albums Set It Off, Phenomenon, The Art Of Breaking, and The Flame in All of Us. The band hit the music scene with the Phenomenon album and branched into active Rock radio with the hit songs 'Rawkfist', 'Move', 'Absolute' and 'Falls Apart'. At Christian radio, the band has charted with eight #1 Rock songs, and three Top Five CHR hits. TFK has shared stages with a wide mix of headliners including Switchfoot, Skillet, Chevelle, Three Days Grace, 311 and Sevendust.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ear Candy... Scrath that... EAR STEAK September 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Heavy riffs, bold lyrics, touching ballads... everything down to the cover of the Welcome to the Masquerade is delivered almost flawlessly. The CD starts off with an intro which sets us nicely for the title track, inviting us to to drop our guards and admit, "I'm not o.k.". It's one of the best TFK songs recorded to date. Continuing the TFK tradition of writing fist pumping, "rawk" songs, Fire it Up gives us another anthem to be heard in sports arenas. It delivers awesome riffs and a very catchy chorus that is guaranteed to stick in your head. Bring Me To Life was offered as a sampler from Taco Bell's feed the beat, which TFK was one of the three winners. It is an epic in every sense of the word. With a simple (and often overused) theme, it offers some of TFK's best lyrics, and is one of the best songs in the TFK library. E for Extinction misleads you to thinking it's the albums first ballad starting off with atmospheric vocals and airy guitars, but some heavier guitars lead into a screaming bridge, and a catchy chorus which reminds me of Quicken from Phenomenon in which Trevor screams the first couple words of each sentence along with his singing for a very anthemic song. Watching Over Me is the albums first ballad. It offers a nice reminder of God's presence without sounding cliche and it ends with a soft orchestra. The Part That Hurts the Most immediately gets things moving again and introduces a small dose of synths to compliment some of the guitar work. Scream offers some honest lyrics of when you feel that you're "at the end of the rope" with some piano is thrown in for good measure. Look Away sounds like something that would fit nicely with Trevor and Steve's side project FM Static, especially their newest album Dear Diary. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars TFK does it again... September 8, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I love how this band really knows who they are as musicians and delivers to their fans every time. As to be expected from this group this album brings alot of rock with very powerful lyrics that will raise your blood pressure and put a smile on your face. Songs such as; Welcome to Masquerade, Bring Me to Life, Fire it Up, Outta Control, deliver on a heavier level. However, this album really does have a little something for everyone, example "Look Away" is a great song that is very capable of tugging on your heart strings. Basically this cd will not dissapoint. Whether you a returning fan like myself, or have no idea who Thousand Foot Krutch is, "Welcome to the Masquerade" is a must have in your collection and I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest Christian Rock album - EVER! September 26, 2009
By V. K.
Format:Audio CD
I'm 30 years old, and I LOVE this album! The songs are hard-core rock (I was head-banging!), with moments of sincere break-down, without being fake or flimsy. The CD itself is wrought with intense emotion. The CD itself is a journey from beginning to end. It would make a great gift for any late teen/early twenty's kid who is going through the natural melancholy/rebellious/insecure time or anyone that's searching for truth and something real. TFK is an AWESOME band, and I loved this album even more than all their previous (which is hard to do). I NEVER SKIP A SONG - I just keep the album on repeat! This album belongs in mainstream & kids wouldn't even realize the difference; the rifts, the beats, the chords, the relate-ability - it would all fit mainstream. The difference would be the message is real - with a Christian view, and subtle uplifting and hopeful messages that would lead them to Christ as the answer vs anything worldly.

5.0 out of 5 stars a party you'll never want to leave September 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As you witness the intro to TFK's new cd "Welcome to the Masquerade". It sets you up for the title track which does just that and brings you straight into the rest of the cd. Which i must say is so much worth the wait that you can't help but love the rest of it. Next, it's followed by the energetic, intensity filled "Fire It Up" once this song is done. You'll be feeling just like the song describes. "Bring Me To Life" follows that and has a rock feel along with the rapid fire delivery vocals/rap that TFK are known for. "E for Extinction" comes next and it has awesome live song written all over it. It's in your face and has nice vocals on the track that will have you singing right along. "Watching Over Me" is a ballad that you could probably hear on the radio which isn't a bad thing. As the song us "an angel watching over me". It would fit right in at just about any radio station.

Next comes "The Part That Hurts The Most (Is Me)" as the song title says it's referring to the hurt and pain that sticks more than anything is the self-inflicted kind. Once again the vocals, lyrics and the band as a whole really come together on this track. It sounds redundant but it's not really "Welcome To The Masquerade" is one of the better cds that i've bought this year. "Scream" is just what you want to do when things are at their breaking point and you can't think of anything to do. It's saying its cool to let your emotions go and let it all out. Another that i love on the cd. "Look Away" is another ballad by TFK, i like this one it isn't too dramatic or anything. It's just an introspective song that you will enjoy (maybe a listen or two) but i like it. "Forward Motion" comes next. It has the same title as another band that i like Relient K.
