This CD is awesome. It's is in-your-face heavy metal. The lyrics are bold, powerful and Biblical. These guys are not afraid to proclaim the Gospel loud and clear.

This Album Is Awesome, The musicianship is excellent. The Words are very uplifting. These guys don't play when it comes to singing about God, Jesus, And The Holy Spirit. I here their next Cd is to Be Very heavy and more updated. Can't wait to buy that one. Mr. Joe here on the other hand probably does not have tthe cd. I do And I have seen them live, The can Rock the house.

Got this CD a few years ago, spun it a few times, and was unimpressed. Very generic traditional metal, poorly produced, in a really cheap package. They have some chops but need to get a real producer to polish their songs up a little; at best, this sounds more like a decent demo tape rather than an official album release.

the cd was great, did need a little better production though. But the message and The music is very awesome. Just a note, I have heard some of the new stuff soon to be released. I have a friend who knows a friend who got me into the studio where they are recording. MAN people will not think it's the same band. they have gotten a lot better, and I heard they are even changing their music on the next release after this release. Hint: triplets Drop D and very heavy this soon to be relesed cd.

Great album. Was fortunate enough to pick it up recently and am glad I did. Very solid musicianship. Lyrics are, as stated, very up-front and faith-based. Production may be lacking but that doesn't take away the solid performance of the band. Looking forward to some new stuff from these guys.

The Cd is very good, and the guitars and vocals stand out. The ne Cd call By The Blood is the best they have ever done, soon to be released. They sound like a new band even better than this last self titled cd. Plenty of triplets and double bass. They are truly very good on the soon to be released cd. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. May be there last cd from inside source. Billy Vaughn the leader of the band may call it quits after a liver transplant. Just a note I heard.

These guys are great,they are true believers in Christ. They don't hide what they are about. They believe in using their music to bring people to Christ. I have heard some of their new stuff coming out an The new stuff is the best I have heard them play. Can't wait till the cd is for sale, I have to get my hands on one. The new cd called "By The Blood" doesn't sound like the same band. They have gotten much heavier. Good quality mix also from what I have heard.
