Song of the Day: Massivivid - Forgiven

By in Articles, Lyric Videos | 1 Comment

Ever heard of Deitiphobia? Massivivid is what became of Wally Shaw’s (founder of Deitiphobia) musical endeavours. Likened to Nine Inch Nails, the music is more guitar driven than his previous. I remember hearing Wally’s music back in the mid 90s & loved the song Red Society when industrial was at its peak in the mainstream. My email address back then was even industrial_remixx! Well time has progressed & Massivivid even won a Dove award in the Christian market with 1998s Hard music Album of the Year. This release’s record label, Tattoo, also brought us B.U.C.K which I wrote a review a few weeks ago.  Several C.S. Lewis inspired quotes are included on the album as well. Their follow-up reminded me of Marilyn Manson (musically) to a degree & had greats such as Boomerang & All The Rage. I chose this song because of its heartfelt lyrics. Jesus paid the way & did it all. Nuff said. Check it out

This world crucifies you again and again
I’m trying hard to escape the influence of sin
You offered your blood and i ran with your pain
Though i rejected you,
You’d do it all the same if i asked you to
Your hand has always been upon my head
You’ve always been there just like you said
It hurts less to live when i give in
And in you arms tonight i’m forgiven
Forgiven because your grace says
I don’t need to wonder why
You destroyed the walls i built by giving up your life
Consuming fire come quickly
For i long to see your face
I know i need you now
I don’t understand it
Why your love just will not die
I will seek your face
Receive your grace
I know you’ll draw nigh
If i ask you to
I can’t comprehend your generosity
You don’t owe me anything yet
You give it all to me if i ask you to

Now Massivivid is a name I haven’t heard in a long time. Back in my college days, there was a local Christian used music store in Springfield, Missouri that my buddies and I would frequent. Found tons of great stuff there over the years, like Dance House Children, The Prayer Chain, Fold Zandura, and others. This album was one of the ones I picked up, as I’ve always had a soft spot for Christian electronica/Industrial rock. Solid record.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
