I list it by artist, though, not by individual songs. So I'm going to go ahead and say not.
Ah, ok. I am hoping they focus more on their Christian faith for the next album. My respect for bands with no real "Christianity" in their lyrics always waxes cold over time.
Some guys at the Christian Metal Realm were having problems downloading the Silent Lapse album as well. The vocalist for SL joined and told us the problem.
It is pretty good, though. Maybe not something that I would have paid for soon, but good enough to listen to. Seed of Hope is my favorite track right now.
From Promise Land, for those interested.
Do you have a link for where you can download this Menahem album for free? I googled, but couldn't find it. Thanks!
Oops. Nevermind. I saw you posted it. Thanks! Good band
I downloaded it also... And I must say... I regret my vocals criticism. It was VERY good.
I can appreciate music that is what it claims to be, so I'm not that stringent in general - but my requirements for anything that bills itself as explicitly Christian music are definitely really high as well. Music doesn't have to be explicitly Christian to be God glorifying of course. But for many (if not most) of the artists in the music industry which claims that category - well frankly, I'd rather they *didn't* sing about Christian themes, since way too many of them barely know which end of a bible is up. (Particularly in the "pop" market). It doesn't help that most of the record labels don't either, and are really just secular companies shoveling whatever trash they think the market will bear rather than trying to find and encourage quality music and lyrics.
Great, solid, Christian lyrics like say, Absolution day, or from non-metal artists like Shai Linne or LeCrae are sadly really hard to come by. Finding the combination of quality music and lyrics by Christian artists in the progressive metal sphere is *really* rare, and certainly to be treasured.
Here's hoping the few we have now are the start of a new trend.
I have, they are very good. Not sure if you would necessarily qualify them as progressive, but his vocals are some of the best I have ever heard, and he's a great guy to boot.
I forgot to post this then I first started this. This band Treasure Land has to be the best Christian prog band I ever heard. They only have like 4 songs on youtube. This has to be the best song by them, and it's my favorite.
I take back my slap then.
Check out Scandinavian Metal Praise.
Oh yes, Scandinavian Metal Praise is very good.
Other bands who you can list here include:
Essence Of Sorrow
Fires Of Babylon
So guess what? I just got back from Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and it was fantastic.
So now I want to start listening to the band Narnia. Which album should I get first? I'm thinking either The Great Fall or Enter the Gate, but if another one is better I could change my mind. Yeah, I know I'm kind of late to the game.
Decade of Confession would be best. Just a large compilation of their best.
Enter The Gate, Long Live The King, Course of a Generation, and Decade of Confessions.
I don't really do compilation albums, so I'm probably going to start with Enter The Gate then.
Good choice. My fav of theirs.
The movie, btw, was indeed fantastic, although I haven't read any reviews or other's opinions. The only thing is, they should have used some Narnia music for the credits...
