Elefante-produced rock, but thanks to a great voice in their frontman it stands out as a gem. Hailing from Lancaster, CA, The Brave had the right elements, but unfortunatly broke just before the grunge revolution. This still stands as a fantastic melodic rock album, though, and is worth seeking out if you're a fan of Guardian, Petra, or Fear Not.

This band sounds like a cross of early GUARDIAN and HOLY SOLDIER. The albums sound like the album Guardian should have done after the 'Miricle Mile' CD. The Brave are worth your time if you like good, straight rock music.

This album is great. The slick production aside (it could use more rawness), it rocks. Ride With The Rhythm is a terrific, fast paced rocker and is my favorite song. If you like to sing along with big rock anthems, this is the CD for you. Big drums, big guitars, great singer, big BGV's, it had it all. A great slice of that 80's hard rock sound.

This album could've been a bit heavier for me, but, like they say, 'ya can't have everything... Strong vocals, powerful harmonies, driving tunes, and a great message! If you like melodic hard rock played with passion, this is definitely worth checking out. 8.95/10
From: Malcolm   (IP unknown) Date: July 28, 2003 at 17:58
This is one great record! Of course, I am a bit bias because I was the bass player. Had a lot of fun making this one. 10/10.

I really enjoy this album. Malcom, you'll be happy to know that I played a lot of your stuff on my radio show in college. Very impressive. Everything about this album rocks. One listen and you're hooked. Nicely done.

This is their most powerful album. It gives off the true meaning of a 'headbanger'. Being saved and delivered from the occult and the world's view of headbander music, this album R.O.C.K.S. (Reaching Others for Christ's Kingdom thru Salvation)
From: Stu   (IP unknown) Date: July 8, 2004 at 14:26
I bought this cd brand new & still have it. This band had it all, excellent musicianship & vocalist. John & Dino's production made this a masterpiece. If you don't have it, get it! You won't regret it!

Great album, there is no bad song on it. Great vocals, great melodies, great production, etc. Personally the highlights on this album are All Together Now, The Waiting, Little Love, Big World and the very best Never Live Without Your Love. A must to have.
From: rick kerch vzla   ( Date: February 26, 2007 at 21:57
I totally agree with you Salomonkey!!!.There's not a single bad song in this album and of course with the production of the Elefante brothers what else could you possibly spect?.10/10
From: 777Stryken777   ( Date: May 18, 2007 at 9:23
Hmmm... not a bad song? That's true... but the Elefante production watered down what could have been a great hard rock record. Imagine what this would have sounded like without the keyboards. I have a bootleg video from the Battle Cries Tour, and they sounded much better in the raw, live setting.

Well, I am from Guatemala City, even though our language is spanish, The brave was a great band, there is a nice group of young christian people here who really enjoyed their music, their rythm their voices and their message. God bless these guys where ever they are. How I wish to have a band like this one on these days. God bless you all.

Malcolm, I really enjoy the band as well as enjoying playing basketball with you at Jane Reynolds Park. Great CD! Produced by one of my favorites...Jon Elfante who I understand was all over these tracks... :-)
From: David   ( Date: June 9, 2009 at 23:35
Absolutely loved this album back when it came out and it still holds up, despite an obvious 80s feel to the production. But the tunes and performances win out. These guys should have been up there with Bride and Guardian as leaders of Christian metal. Just didn't quite work out that way.
From: Fizgig2007   (---.) Date: August 25, 2009 at 8:10
Awesome album - I have it currently playing!! Bought it new and is still almost scratch free. The music was a huge part of me growing up. Would love to track down the follow up CD 'Trust'. I had a tape copy - pity it's over played and wrecked!

I was introduced to their music in 1994 and i still listen to them alot at home or in the car. their music,and the message has helped me grow in the faith.The sad thing is ,,why did they stop?
From: Ronnie B   ( Date: April 29, 2011 at 10:19
I saw these guys live in Birmingham Alabama in the 90's and they were incredible. I was also fortunate enough to hang out with them after the show at the Waffle House. Great band with a real heart for ministry. I wish we could have heard more from this line-up. I liked the follow up with Randy Roberts on vocals, but this line-up was my favorite. It really is too bad that they didn't record more. They had a great instrumental 'SOUP & A BISQUIT' that was tremendous.

Hi guys! Thanks for all of the nice messages. Just wanted to give you all a shout out, and let you know that I am currently working on the new Brave record, should be available early next year. The tentative working title is Acoustica, but that may change. The album will feature all acoustic versions of some of the best of both Battlecries and Trust, and a couple of new tunes. Stay tuned!! Stayce--The Brave

Great work of art and well produced. This remains one of my favorite discs of all time. Thanks to you guys from the band and to the Elefante Brothers for putting out a great piece of ministry to those of us who longed for something other than secular metal. This helped my walk then and remains an aid to my walk today. Blessings on all you fellas. Can't wait for the new disc!
