Hi, great new music. I love the following 2 songs the most…
Brynn Elliott – Might Not Like Me (Acoustic) [Single]
Abigail Duhon – Abigail Duhon [EP]
So The Letter Black got a lot heavier post t&n. I didn’t expect it and I am liking the metal influence.
I really like it. Does anyone have any suggestions for the nu-metal sound? I have been really into as of late. Stuff like this and Love and Death and early Disciple and Project 86… Any ideas or suggestions?
Looks like you have a good idea of some of the bigger bands with some nu-metal influences. I would find it hard to find a band that is just nu-metal. Now some of these may be more heavy rock, but I believe you will find the sound you are looking for with some of these bands(or albums): – Spades and Blades – More metal/metalcore, but they do have some nu-metal mixed in that I just love – https://spadesandblades.bandcamp.com/ – Early if not everything Demon Hunter has released – Skillet – Collide – This album they experimented with some metal influences… Read more »
I already knew about quite a few of these bands. I have been into heavy music for a long while. I have just had the itch to listen to hard rock/nu metal/rap rock/whatever, lately. Back when I was listening to this style of music, I was not a believer so I was listening to a lot of crap and I missed out on so much of the great christian alternative. So, from your list I discovered Spades and Blades, Righteous Vendetta and Beanbag. Actually while exploring Beanbag’s related artists on Spotify, I stumbled upon Justifide and LikeDavid which is awesome.… Read more »
I figured a lot of my list would probably be known to you unless you are really new to christian music, but I wanted to make sure I included as much as possible. Since it is not on your list currently I think I should recommend Brian Welch’s album before he named it Love and Death called Save Me From Myself. Which you probably have heard of, but just making sure. Weird that I forgot to put Justifide on that list, but glad you found it. Those suggestions on spotify or any music service is a good place to start… Read more »
A few recent releases you could check out:
* As We Ascend – Farewell To Midnight
* Random Hero – The Covering
* torndown – Live Again EP
Dude that We Are Leo album is really great. I’ve always been a fan and even though they ride that “pop” line, I can’t help but enjoy the tracks
I’ve only listened to lead single and while it struck me as being made for CCM it’s the kind of CCM that doesn’t make me want to turn the dial. If the rest of the album is similar I could totally live with that.
The Letter Black is not out until 6/2 over here in Europe.
Same for you?
Nope, the album came out yesterday (5/26) in the US. It is curious that it has been pushed back a week in Europe. I thought the whole point moving to Friday releases was to make the release date universal worldwide. I know that the album is being distributed by SPV in Europe instead of by AMPED like it is here in the US. They must of been the one to change the release date for some reason.
No EDM. 🙁
I haven’t gotten a chance to listen to either yet, but I know We Are Leo and Abigail Duhon are both artists known to incorporate EDM elements into their music. I expect both albums to be more CCM friendly but I do intend to check out both and see if either one experiments with EDM any.
Also, not EDM but Narrow Skies is the new project from Salt of the Sound so I’m expecting it to have a little bit of a electronic flair to it.
But yeah, I didn’t kind any Christian EDM this week. Maybe next week.
