Not Too Blind To See Great Music | Posted June 13, 2024

What You Need To Know:

Classic Disaster is a new Christian metalcore band formed in southern California. They recently released their debut EP - Too Blind To See - with a newer label called Sanctify Studios. Too Blind To See is their first major release, aside from some leading singles that gained attention from the hard rock and metal music scenes.

What It Sounds Like:

Modern metalcore bands often find themselves in a sea of bands who are doing similar things with their heavy music. Classic Disaster has a more alternative metal sound, leaning more into a continuous, groovy riffs that drives the music, instead of relying on guitar solos or breakdowns. Their sound is reminiscent of 2000s Christian bands like Pillar or Skillet.

Spiritual Highlights:

Too Blind To See features six songs, each of which accomplish something a little different. The opening song is exemplary of their mission as a band - to bridge hardship and hope in life through their music and lyrics. It invites the listener to open up and receive God in their life. The next song, "To The Ground," has the same in-your-face message that a lot of the now-big names in Christian rock and metal have had success with.

The EP seems to open up with more vulnerability as it progresses, finding the last two songs especially deeper with elements of faith and life struggles. "Never Alone" dives into the difficulty of trusting God even when we feel alone and even more so, with "Suffering." The EP is full of mature, honest, and biblical songwriting that is encouraging and refreshing.

Best Song:

There are strong contenders for my favorite song, as the lead singles, such as "To The Ground" and "Broken System" are solid songs for any fan of Christian metal. But the most impressive song is the closing one, "Suffering." The message of the song is something we can all relate to.

Lead singer Adam Castro screams a heartfelt cry to God with, "they say you hold the whole world in your hands/and if that's true then I don't understand/why there's so much suffering/I know you have a greater plan!" Lending to the song is the fantastic musicianship of the band, showcased in that your attention is kept through the almost 7-minute long song.

For Fans Of:

Pillar, Skillet, Bloodlines

Bottom Line:

It's not often that a metal band's debut is packed with so much potential and excellence. The singles were definitely leading up to something great and Classic Disaster delivered. The closing song showcased their ability to creature longer, more musically diverse songs, and I hope they lean into that more next time. Although, "To the Ground" was the most average of the songs, both lyrically and musically. Ultimately, the passion to share hope to a hopeless world with well-made alternative metal is clearly seen here. I hope more is to come from the band soon enough!
