Today, I’m doing something a little different. These bands are bands that people should know and that are on the rise. Check them out! And here you go!
5. Saints Can Lie
Metalcore acts have become very common in the United States. But Saints Can Lie seem to be doing something sort of fresh. The band formed in 2012 with the original lineup of brothers Vocalist Jake and Guitarist/Pianist Hunter Shaw, Guitarist John McDonough and Drummer Bryce Garland. The band comes from Texas, home to many amazing metal bands including Pantera and The Famine. On April 26, 2013, John, as well as Jake and Hunter, got into a car accident. John died that day, but the Shaw brothers survived. To this day, the band has memorialized him permanently on their Facebook page. The band is independent and has released an album titled Trial & Tribulation.

Sometimes, as Stephen King said, the most mind-boggling thing is size. Size conquers all. The sheer size of the known universe, for example, crushes the mind when you just consider it.
As I think about the mysteries and wonders in creation, usually my mind turns to the insanely vast reaches of space. Continued →
