CHRISTIAN ROCK RECAP WITH RYAN ADAMS, #12 - Death Therapy, Dens, Convictions

Some bands that I've highlighted in the past have more space in my column. But, this time, it's thanks to their new full-length projects. Recently, rock bands Dens and Convictions have each dropped impressive records. Metal band Death Therapy will follow suit with a new project of their own. Rock veterans August Burns Red is dropping their 10th-anniversary version of their record, Leveler. Also, rock group Then It Ends continues to release great singles, once per month. Here's the latest rock news.

Death Therapy "Familiar Shadows" 

Death Therapy's third studio album, Melancholy Machines, will drop in early June 2021. Their recently released second single, "Familiar Shadows," boasts heavy industrial sounds that contrast the light-hearted message of encouragement. This record may be one of the band's most creative yet. But, we'll have to wait a little longer to find out. 

About the single, band lead Jason Wisdom, "'Familiar Shadows' is about overcoming depression and suicidal thoughts one day at a time. It's meant to be an anthem. Not only for those going through these battles, but a call to action for those who can reach out a hand to them and assure them, as the song says 'you are not alone.' I hope folks will hear this song and realize they aren’t the only ones who feel alone. Even if they're physically alone at that moment, my desire is that the song will make them feel connected with countless others." 

 

Dens - Tamed Tongues

Dens, the rock band signed to Facedown Records, has released their celebratory album, Tamed Tongues. This project is a re-recording of their 2020 hit album, Taming Tongues (yes, it has a similar name). Each song has been re-arranged and re-recorded (new vocals, music, and styles). Dens really stretched their creative muscles and it paid off well, thus allowing for significant highlights to the message of this noteworthy concept album. 
 

Convictions - I WON'T SURVIVE EP

Convictions is easily one of the most hard-working and devoted bands in the Christian metal genre. And, with their record, I WON'T SURVIVEtheir hard work has really paid off. Each song on the project is a story from the band's personal friends, ranging from suicide, post-traumatic stress disorder, and depression. Convictions' faith, as well as those of their storytellers, is an evident key to surviving life's rough times. I WON'T SURVIVE is one of the heaviest metalcore records to hear in 2021, both musically and lyrically.
