If you like the metal stuff, do not hear this album... But if you also like a good Hard Rock, you gotta listen THIS! Everybody hates Promise Man, cause everything changes on the band, but, as a Hrad/Grunge album, have a superior quality!! Fav. tracks = Love conquers all, Grind, Sand, Promise man, why dont you look into jesus... LISTEN NOW!

This is a great album. The songs are really great.

Not their most popular album, by any means, but I do like their sound on's nothing like their first two releases. They tried to do the grunge thing here. Not all the songs are great, but some are very good (and kind of catchy) like the title track.

First of all, I hate grunge. Secondly, I love the late 80's hair metal sound. So when I put this disc in, I was at first very disappointed. But the more I listened, the more I liked it and now I really like it! The opening title track is the best on the record. But there are some quality songs here. The thing that stands out to me is the lyrics. They are so much better than the formulaic lyrics on the first 2 records. This is a good rock record that will challenge you in your Christian walk.

I picked this CD up back in 96' and I still listen to it today. Music has definately changed since then but its still holds strong with it's cool (maybe simple at times), but cool riffs as in "Promise Man".

Compared to there first 2 albums this one sucks. Thats all I really have to say.

This is not Holy Soldier. It's everything but it's not HS.
From: Spikey   (IP unknown) Date: November 10, 2003 at 18:11
I give you the new and improved Holy Soldier! Definitely not the same sound as their previous 2 albums, but STILL AWESOME. Holy Soldier was one band to undergo major changes in band membership and style, but still put out a great CD!

Loved the first 2 HS CDs. This one, however, ranks with Guardian's Bottle Rocket as one of my most hated CDs of all times. I tried with everything in me to get beyond the fact that HS were following the trends in grunge but I just never could get into this one. Then I read an interview with the band where they denied ever being a "metal band" and stated that this was finally the music they always wanted to play! SELLOUT! Geez, if you want to follow trends, go ahead, but don't denying your past.

This is a great album. It's not metal. If grunge makes you puke, then stay away from it. If you like intelligent hard rock, then this is a keeper. They also do a cool version of my favorite Larry Norman Song!

This album is SLOW, makes me think of what would happen if Pearl Jam (on valium) was trying to do Adult Alternative! Funny thing is I think these songs actually sounded better live on the Encore album.

Actually this is the most popular album! It has a few songs that remind me of the Nah Nah song. This was a very bass vocal secular group in the mid ninety's. "why don't you look into Jesus" is a really great song. A few of the earlier songs do sound a little grungy, but they are user friendly. I recall that this got an award for best artist from dove! So, if you like the other albums, this one is a must. It's about Jesus anyway!
