First and foremost, I Built The Cross is a ministry, and our utmost priority is to disperse, expand, and clarify the love and grace that Jesus Christ has so freely given to us. Secondly, we like to play Spirit-Led Technical Death Metal, with a little hardcore influence sprinkled here and there. Anyway, this section isn't devoted solely to musical participants, but spiritual members as well.
Ex-members from Disfiguring The Goddess (We left on good terms and remain good friends), We, Reed and Garrett, explored our boundries by trying out a few different genres or music, and through the acoustic, hardcore, and pop punk, we discovered that in order to express ourselves in the truest form, metal was the only thing that got the job done.
Recently, we added Jason as our second guitarist and to this point he's been an incredible blessing, not only as a participant in the band, but as a close friend and family member. Without his amazing musical abilities for technical speed and smooth guitar writing, we're sure IBTC wouldn't be where it currently is and where it's climbing.
Soon after, we added our close friend and brother Zak on bass. His tireless laughing and great sense of humor really brighten our lives...despite the color of his skin ;) In all seriousness though, we're excited to see what he has to bring to the table...err...cross, we mean?
Most recently, we added Steven on drums. He took a huge leap of faith as he took a trip from Florida to Nevada to try out for our band. Within minutes of meeting him, we fell in love with his genuine personality and desire to serve the Lord. After our first practice with him, we knew he was the one.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
So here we are, answering the Lord's calling.
Unorthadox death metal in the name of Jesus Christ.
