Day of Fire lead singer, Joshua Brown, is the former frontman for Full Devil Jacket (Island/Def Jam). Joshua has a powerful testimony of turning away from his rock-star lifestyle after surviving a heroine overdose and surrendering his life to God while in rehabilitation. After a two-year hiatus, Joshua began writing songs again, this time with guitarist/songwriter/fellow believer Gregg Hionis, and the pair began playing out in Joshua's hometown of Jackson, Tenn. The radical transformation of Joshua's life along with the straightforward message found in the lyrics, has given Day of Fire the platform to have a major impact on culture. Musically Day of Fire is the perfect blend of aggressive rock mixed with the message of hope. The band's national debut release is produced and mixed by Scott Humphrey (Rob Zombie). They appeared on various festivals throughout the summer and opened for Third Day on first leg of the fall tour.

great way to kick it off!| Posted September 26, 2009
I don't even remember how I heard about this band, but I'm very glad I did! This is a great debut album with examples of skill, talent, and passion for God. The lyrics are pretty good; simple at times, but they get their points across fairly clearly unlike some bands. Now apparently some fans prefer vague, poetic lyrics that they can interpret for themselves, but I like the solid, unmistakable kind which is in most of the songs on this album.
Specifically, my personal favorites were Through the Fire, To Fly, Rain Song, and I Am the Door. They have great power in those songs with the guitars driving them along! Loved it! They sound a little bit the same, but still great for a first album.
A touch of variety is mixed into this work with Rain Song and Fade Away being slower (though definitely not in a bad way) and even an instrumental track thrown in. Shows a bit of the band's musical abilities to produce songs on different levels.
Overall, a strong debut, definitely worth a listen! And because it tends to get into your head and stick with you, I ended up buying the CD...
Great Debut!!| Posted August 07, 2009
This album has no songs that are really stand out, but i would say that there are no bad songs other than Adrianne. If I had to reccomend a song though, I would say either Jacob's Dream or I Am The Door. This is a very good album that I think everybody should give a chance!
Great one ....newest album is better.| Posted December 22, 2008
These Dudes are awesome !! I've seen them live a couple years back ....With excellent guitar playing ,these guys perfected the word ROCK .
I didn't much care for there stage manners....Josh Brown would spit all over the place between breaths.

I won this cd, but I didn`t keep it. There was like only one song that i liked on there. Their music is a little too hard for my taste.Not a cd that I would recommend

Outreach| Posted March 24, 2008
This is a perfect band to use to outreach to the youth who are searching for something more. I gave this CD to a friend of mine who was getting caught up in the world of drugs, sex and rock and roll. He adored this CD and it helped him find his way into the Christian Rock world.
