Buried Above: Christian Rock with Friends | Posted January 29, 2022
What You Need To Know:

Buried Above is a hard rock band led by Colton Reed. He is a singer/songwriter who further honed his skills in music alongside producers Josiah Prince and Andrew Stanton with this album. This is Buried Above's debut rock album. The single, "Blood," rose on various Christian rock charts.

What It Sounds Like:

Buried Above bears strong resemblance to current Christian rock bands, being Reed's primary influences. Of them all, Disciple is the most similar. Two factors help Buried Above stand out - the impressiveness of a debut and the guest vocals. Christian rock favorites are found throughout, such as Dawn Michele from Fireflight and Matt Biard from Spoken.

Spiritual Highlights:

Reed's influences in rock music and his own Christian upbringing are evident in this record. Reed shares on his band's website that "the world is a very dark and gloomy place...But the hope of Jesus is still as prominent now as it has been since the time of Paul. This generation is desperately in need of a reminder of that hope, a reminder that there is a better way to live our lives."

The songs reflect his heart for a lost and broken world. Songs like "Never Too Late" and "Already Written" showcase tenderhearted songwriting, meeting us in our struggles. Meanwhile, "The Front Lines" and "Blood" proclaim the power and hope we have in Christ.

Best Song:

In a display of both musical prowess from great musical guests and Buried Above's own capabilities, "Blood" represents this record well. The catchy chorus proclaims the biblical hope that Buried Above stands for, "I see the things I've/But all you see is blood!" Josiah Prince (of Disciple) is the guest on this track, both vocally and musically with an excellent guitar solo.

For Fans Of:

Disciple, Skillet, Three Days Grace

Bottom Line:

All things considered, Buried Above's debut rock album lays a strong foundation for the band to further grow into their own from. Fans of the Christian rock genre won't be particularly surprised with this record, but it will definitely fit right in their playlists. With gritty screams, explosive musicianship, and the presence of great singers, Buried Above presents an enjoyable hard rock album, backed with biblical roots.
