DEFINITELY NOT METALCORE | Posted April-21-2017 I love Matty Mullins!!! He is a cheerful, loving and caring person. I have thoroughly enjoyed his screaming admonitions and encouragements as the frontman of Memphis May Fire. With that said, his self titled solo projects have left me severly wanting. In his second installment, Unstoppable, he has at least stepped up his game from the innaugural release (self titled). I wouldn't recommend this album to anyone but preteen/tween girls. I appreciate that he may want to broaden his outreach to other genres, but for the love of all that is wonderful in the universe, please put a disclaimer on anything that is released, that THIS IS NOT METALCORE. Scream on Matty, scream on!
XXI is AOK | Posted February-23-2017
When we are faced with the challenges that come with being a mortal being there can be many outcomes. These young men were dealt a cruel fate in the death of their dear friend and bandmate, lead singer, Eric Gentry. When some choose to hide or mask their pain, these gentlemen sought their solace in the only true one that can heal us YHWH and his son. They also chose to continue on their legacy as a phoenix rises from the ashes. From their former band "A Feast For Kings" rises "XXI" (21 in honor of the age Eric was when he died).
If you like metalcore or any of the subgenres, you will love these guys. They come straight from the heart with lyrics that will move your soul, and riffs that will melt your insides. With maturity I can see these guys filling our metal spirits for many years.
Lecrae continues to light up the Rap/Hip-Hop world unashamadly reppin' GOD. I particularly like this cd for it's harder edge on more than 1 or 2 tracks as he usually leans to more hip-hop rather than the rap style. He has also caught the attention of main stream entertainment by winning a grammy, and appearing on 106 & park filling the house with fans chanting "one-one-six" at the end to the show's closing interview.
Gr8 new find! | Posted September-12-2013
This band was found and supported by John Cooper of Skillet. After hearing them open for Red in Flint, MI in the Spring of 2013, I understand why he was so hyped about these guys. I believe this band will surpasss the popularity of Skillet and perhaps Red. Incredible clean vocals mixed with tough riffs and alround positive and real lyrics make this quintet "ones to watch". If you like hard rock genre and want the depth of spiritual lyrics, this is your band. I am definately a "Humanoid" (fan of the band, as chosen by the band on facebook).
P.O.D. is renewed. | Posted August-01-2013
It is refreshing to see P.O.D. back renewed, refreshed and ready to lay it down. If you haven't heard their latest release " Murdered Love", get ready to rock! This album is full of raw unadulterated energy and passion. As always they mix hard rock with reggae and punk stylings to motivate and spur you on. I chose to take one star away for the last song in the mix for the edited curse word, which was used in a third person context, but unnecessary. Overall an A class effort by the San Diego crew.
