The modern worship sound from Colombia's Soulfire Revolution returns with their sophomore release Afterglow. Their debut album Revival set the expectation high for the follow up release. This album continues to provide evidence that God is moving across the world, not only in North America.
The album kicks off with "Arise," an uptempo, electro pop tune with a catchy and singable chorus. If there is one thing that Soulfire does correctly, it's providing songs that will have the ability to engage a congregation. This song is a call to worship, a call to stand and come to battle, a call for the church to arise.
"Lost In Your Love" is very reminiscent of their first album. Clearly, the gang at Soulfire Revolution have found their sound and are not straying far from it. The song delivers a clear worshipful message of the love of Christ.
Things slow down considerably with "We Will Rise Up" and "You Have Won My Heart," the latter being a precious heart cry to God. A song of devotion and praise, this is the kind of worship song that you cannot easily sing unless you mean it.
The album ebbs and flows, much like the Holy Spirit does during a worship service. There are uptempo praise songs followed by heartfelt worship songs. It is an album that can be listened to all at once, or you can pick three or four of your favorites and lead yourself into a powerful time of prayer.
This group of young people from Bogota, Colombia are doing an amazing job in bringing the gospel to a land that is desperate for God. Although they haven't shown much growth musically since the debut, the music they are writing and singing is doing what it needs to do: bringing glory to God.
