Song of the Day: Broken Yoke - Ends With You

Broken Yoke formed as a rap rock hybrid from Ohio & have released 4 albums. Besides this one check out Beautiful, another fave of mine from the band. Also check out these thought provoking lyrics. Anytime, anywhere There’s a place that I can go Where I can know Your truthful love’s Revealed It’s only in this place that I feel Your presence move inside of me My eyes desire to see beyond the door My soul slowly crying out To know you more My flesh growing weaker with time but I Regain my strength in you I spent time on the other side Crossing the line Swallowed by pride, and wondering why All my tendencies Are giving up so easily And so I surrendered my life to you I can’t go where others go And i can’t know What some other knows My life will show That I’ve been change by the person Who willingly Gave up his life for me Dying just to set me free Fearless eyes Timeless times I see forever fall from you Patient hands Pull me in It begins and ends with you I’ll never know again What it might be like To go again One second Without a touch from you I found the way I’m gonna stay Forever I need to say More that I’ve ever known You help me Realize who I am You help me See the man living within You help me Shine the light so I Find my way back to you Continued →

Song of the Day: Aggressive Change - Broken

Aggressive Change is another rarity that I came across in my unending search for Christian rock/metal. Finally shelled out the bucks to buy a copy from Amazon & seems to be a hardcore/metalcore band in the early stages of hardcore. The CD released on Ole Crow Records which also put out an early hxc cd I used to have: Lantern from XDisciplexAD.… Continued →

Song of the Day: GFM - Smile

Gold Frankincense & Myrrh (stylized as GFM) is a metal band comprised of 3 sisters. With so much talent for being so young, this band has a great future & have put out so much music in so little time. This review is also in reference to my friend Blake who runs Reanimated Radio who likes this band as much as I do!… Continued →

Song of the Day: Grand Prize - It's Not Over

Grand Prize hailed from the Calvary Chapel location in Idaho. They eventually changed their name to Esterlyn & do a more AC/worshipful vibe. This SOTD has a special meaning to me & is a lot of what I personally struggle with. : You say that you love Him with your life  But your going your own way  You need to let Him have your rights   Let Him take control of your life.”… Continued →

Song of the Day: Fono - Collide

Fono was an awesome band that had a really outstanding debut, but seemed to fail into obscurity shortly thereafter a follow-up. They originally came from the United Kingdom under the name Seven, but moved to California for their American tenure. Their vocalist actually played in other bands I have releases from called Split Level & Tribe of Dan.… Continued →

Song of the Day: The W's - Frank

The W’s were a short lived swing revival/ska band whose 2 full lengths garnered a lot of airplay on Christian rock stations back in the day. They are well known for their first hit The Devil is Bad but also check out the superb Moses. I did not know, but 2 members of the band formed a band BenDixon that I have been starting to follow lately.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Ruby Joe - Fat Cat

Ruby Joe was an awesome rocka/pscychobill band from California. They changed things up on their 2nd album which dabbled in swing. The original band that 2 members were in was named Strugglefish which is in reference I’m pretty sure to one of my all time faves 1st LP DigHayZoose which was actually my first review for one of their songs.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Luther-N - The Table

Luther-N was an industrial side project from a band I saw with Disciple many years ago called Junker Jorg. This song got stuck in my head when it came out & is a mix of rapcore & industrial which works in this song IMHO. Hope you like it as well. Their only release to my knowledge was on Youngside records which is the label that released music by my fave goth band The Awakening.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Cry Mercy - Time To Go

Cry Mercy was a groove metal band hailing from Australia signed to Steve Rowe’s record label. I remember hearing them on a compilation put out by Rowe Productions & loved this song. The album didn’t fare well, but might have done a lot better if it came out back in the early 90s instead of 1996 like it did.  … Continued →
