    Ottawa, Canada based Siloam is the brainchild of a talented drummer by the name of Brian Lutes. Coming out of a real street wise background, Lutes became a Christian after nearly dying of a drug overdose but went back to the streets in order to work with kids and relate the Gospel to them in a creditable way. Lutes, In the meantime, had given up music altogether until he was approached by his pastor who said he had a dream of him being involved in a band called Siloam (drawing its name from John 9:7). Proceeding to jam and play at church on Sunday, Lutes got together with a partner of his from another band, Tom Saidek, and started holding auditions in Los Angeles and Europe. After auditioning a total of 70 guitarist and 40 vocalist, the two settled on a vocalist and bassist who both hail from Boston, Lee Guthrie and Chad Everett respectively, and a keyboardist from Vermont in Ken Maris. Lead guitarist Tim Laroche was recruited out of Iceland. Immediately after its line up was put together, Siloam entered the studio and began work on its 1991 Image 7 debut Sweet Destiny.

    The best way to describe Siloam would be a blend of melodic hard rock and melodic rock with commercial metal tendencies. Sweet Destiny actually flows quite well from front to back in that it includes no filler tracks, best showcasing the bands songwriting skills on energetic hard rockers such as "Chemical King (Big Fight)" and "Eastern Skies" in addition to "Here I Am Again" and "Sweet Destiny" with their radio friendly sensibilities. The band even turns it up a notch on the guitar driven metal of "Lethal Lady" while delivering two customary - though very well done - commercial ballads in "Child Of Mine" and "After The Fire". In the end, if you happen to be a fan of Stryper, Holy Soldier, Guardian, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi and others in the same genre then Siloam is certain to appeal to you.
