The Silence Is Broken!
Posted September 30, 2009
The Letter Black has certainly "Broken the Silence!" The first single, "Moving On" might seem rather heartless at first listen, but once you think about it, the meaning jumps at you. It talks about how "I don't care about you", but the "you" can be seen as an ex, or as our sinful nature.
The first single, "Hanging On By A Thread" is a hard hitting single that screams that everything isn't alright, and that someone must come and save me. It's an earnest plea out to God to come save.
"The Best of Me" is about how “I’ll you the best of me” and how we shouldn’t hold back from serving God. A great, uplifting song! Two thumbs up!
“Collapse” tells how even though we’re in pain, God can heal our scars and give us new life. It says, “I can’t live without you.”
“Away From Me” is a hard-hitting song that is telling that which holds us down “to get away from me!”.The scream in the song seems a little out of place at first, but later grows on you. Great guitar rifts!
“Perfect” is a fantastic ending to a first release. It’s a praise song along the lines of “All Around Me” by Flyleaf. It lauds God about how “perfect He is”.
Even though comparisons to Fireflight will certainly occur, The Letter Black is a talented band deserves recognition. The highlights on this album are the vocals and the guitar rift. I give this EP a 4 out of 5. Expect big things out of this band!
