Creator [edit]
by Hands | Genre: Hard Rock/Metal | Release Date: July 21, 2009
 

Shane Ochsner, Josh Silbernagel, Chris Schwartz and Jerik Hendrickson collectively are Hands, a Fargo band that combines circling atmospheric guitars punctuated with hard hitting progressions. They are a band in which rock and roll meets ambient hardcore and warm silvery singing rivals hardcore screams. Their songs are carefully crafted and layered with hope and strength, their evocative lyrics and emotional vocals leave Hands open-hearted to listeners. In songs hailed by Alternative Press Magazine as "wave after wave of musical awesomeness," Ochsner’s voice carries seamlessly from throaty growl to melodic yell and settles beautifully into sweet harmony.

Since forming in 2007 Hands have desired to present a passionate and intense live show. Now, two years later, they offer a performance that is characterized by what drummer Josh Silbernagel calls "beautiful chaos." Hands unfurl hugely anthemic prog-rock ballads bearing the influence of Isis while at the same time laying out solidly progressive hardcore tracks inspired by bands such as Life In Your Way and Misery Signals.

"Creator" was engineered by producer Mike Dresch at Cathouse Studios (Nodes Of Ranvier, The Spill Canvas, War Of Ages), who also produced the band’s previous record "The Sounds Of Earth".

Nice Change of Pace | Posted May 26, 2011
I would describe this album as unique and refreshing. While there are so many Christian metal acts out there, there are few you can truly comprehend and few you can undersand were they stand in the Light. Hands truly separates themselves from the bunch with "Creator," and while they have work to do in terms of technical prowless, this album is still a nice change of pace. Few bands, if any, are up to par with genre leaders Demon Hunter, but Hands establishes themselves as soldiers on the side of standing for Christ and not wavering--just like DH. Truly a head banger though melodic at times. It's not trash or mosh material, but it is still hardcore. Tight riffs and drum production as well as good breakdowns and singing. With "Give Me Rest" set to drop this year, it will be exciting to see how Hands has harnessed their craft built in this album. As it stands, Hands is set to break it wide open!
