This hardcore band hailed from Colorado Springs. They infused their heavy chugga chugga rhythms with melodic parts without ever getting whiny. This led some fans and writers to dub them post-hardcore, which isn’t fully accurate, but I can see why they said that.
What strikes me about this song is the passion behind both the music and the clear-cutting lyrics:
Where is the hope?
Where is the love?
Without these your system will self-destruct
While it might seem that the song was aimed at society in general, it is actually pointed at the failures of the Church to stay true to the pure message of the Gospel. If it’s not about the love, then what is it really about?
