Song of the Day: Illuminandi - The 40th Day

This cool band has appeared on a few compilations & have released a couple LPS since 1998. Appears they changed their name recently. Their style of music tends to lean to the gothic/folk genres, but they are all over the place reaching from extreme metal to prog rock. Just listen to their drum rolls & cello in their discography. Czterdziesta Doba is the Polish name of this song btw. Continued →

Song of the Day: Virgin Black - Drink The Midnight Hymn

Back in my military years I ran into a Christian family who was into goth music. The daughter introduced me to this band whom I have followed ever since. Check out all their stuff as you will not be disappointed if you’re into the doomy symphonic sub genres of goth. Also, check out a bad audio, but live version of another of theirs. Sombre Romantic is one of my fave albums of all time.   Continued →

Project 86 releases Metatropolis

So this has gotta be the heaviest song Andrew & co. has ever released. It is the first single for their last project (no pun intended!) entitled Omni that will be released in early 2023. I’ve seen them almost as many times as Norma Jean live & they are great in ever way with their musical finesse. I helped crowdfund their live album & have a unreleased pressing from it. Their eponymous album was the first cd I purchased when I joined the military at an army PX!… Continued →

Song of the Day: Kim Boyce - Facts of Love

I’ll probably catch some flack for this one, but hey, this song is a rocker. Kim Boyce was known in the CCM industry & was all over AC radio. But, when you’re a kid & your parents make you listen to only AC Christian music, you would get excited for a rock song on the radio!  Songs like this help me remember my childlike faith. This was 1992. Anyways, hope y’all like it & check out these lyrics. Reminds me of being on fire for Jesus which I have lost a lot of it tbh over the years and day to day life is an ever consistent reminder of the love of Jesus.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Jesus Freaks - Hate vs Sub-Train - Epidermis

Jesus Freaks was a thrash groove metal band that changed their name to Sub-Train after releasing 2 albums. They had some decent Christian metal airplay back in the day. Yeah they sounded like Metallica ripoff, but I’m not too worried about it. They still have headbanging music! And yes, I thought about this band when DC Talk came out with their Jesus Freak stuff.  And as a sidenote, Scott Waters’ No Life Til Metal site has a great review on them as he toured with them while with Ultimatum.… Continued →

Song of the Day: The Supertones - Little Man

So what is the actual name of this band? The Supertones, Supertones, OC Supertones! Anyways, they got the whole Christian industry into 3rd wave ska music. The other 2 Five Iron Frenzy & The Insyderz caught on right afterwards if I remember correctly. My acquaintance from high school was actually trying to bring them to Bloomington/Normal Illinois, but from what I gather they got stuck in a snow storm. Pretty sure this was circa 1995. Anyways, the bass lead is fun to play & not that difficult if you want to learn it.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Fold Zandura - King Planet vs WenCarla

So I saw this band when they first changed their name to FZ from Mortal. I talked to I think Jerome before the show with Bloomsday & asked for what I think was Kingflux & they ended up playing it for me. Yah! Anyways fast forward all these years later & Jerome has been working with Switchfoot & then AI find out they might come out with more music? Sounds good to me. Oh yeah, & remember YHWH is still in control of king planet! https://www.morzanmuzik.com/… Continued →

Song of the Day: Bloodgood - I Wanna Live In Your Heart

The passing of Michael Bloodgood still hits hard with all of us who remember his music and have followed his health on social media. This SOTD was actually my 2nd intro to them. My first being Battle of the Flesh off one of the Intense Records comps I found at a Hobby Lobby almost 30 years ago! I fell in love with this ballad & I still about the lyrics to this day how much Jesus still loves us. I felt my heart was leading I set my course on you In your eyes I’m reading Tell me what you want to do I want to live in your heart I want to be in your thoughts Where you go, walk with me And when you talk, talk about me The whole world sits and wonders How a man loves his woman When passion’s filled with thunder From the trance they’re under When you’re alone in the middle of the night Let my love be your light When you awake from your sleep Know in your heart my love’s deep My love’s deep Continued →

Song of the Day: Matt Papa - One Thing

This worship artist is one I interviewed back in college. He gave me this cd & I was hooked-every single song resonated with me & not many worship artists have, Anyways Check the whole album & these mission lyrics from Phil 1:20, Psalm 145:13, 46:10 which should be our anthem.  Jesus-nuff said For Erick there was one thing, one thing and nothing more That moved his growing family to the slums of Bangalore For Becca there was one thing, one thing that kept her home She gave up her career to take an orphan in her arms What would make a man so bold Make a woman lay her own life down Only one thing Jesus Christ, Magnified All over the world Lifted High, glorified All over the world Only One thing Is Worth everything Jesus Christ, Magnified All over the world For David there was one thing he gave his life to preach His church in China meets in secret growing every week For Ruby there was one thing that kept her in the choir It hurt to stand at 90 but she worshipped with a smile What would make a man so bold Make a woman lay her own life down only one thing For us now there is one thing A choice that we all have Living for our kingdoms or the only one that lasts..… Continued →

Song of the Day: Tree63 - 101

South African Tree 63 delivered a lot of music mostly through the AC format, but they also had some rockier tunes. They started in 1996 under “Tree” but the name was taken already by others. They added 63 based on Psalms 63, a reference to their second LP. Anyways hope you like this one as much as I have over the years. Also, vocalist John Ellis eventually struck on his own. Check him out as his solo stuff is decent also.    … Continued →

Song of the Day: Fighter - Alone With You

This song is been one of my fave songs of all time-yeah there are a lot of them. But for real I think it was maybe 1994 I heard this one & I immediately was hooked. Maybe it was Amy Wolter’s voice or the lyrics (probably the latter). Anyways, keep you eyes, ears and heart open to what YHWH is telling you and spending quiet time with Him is a surefire way of letting Him be involved with our lives. It’s been too easy to stay away I’ve excuses for everyday that I ran from you Looking the other way Afraid of what yo might say Of what I’d have to do But when I stopped running And started to hear Your voice became real I can feel you near When I am alone with You I can hear you calling When I am alone with You Your Spirit’s falling… Your voice keeps calling my name Sitting here in my quiet chair expecting to find you there This is a better choice I can think of all the years wasted In a one way conversation It was only my voice Ready to listen I’m ready to hear Word so sweet to my aching ears Continued →

Song of the Day: Rusty Shipp - Man Myth Legend

Rusty Shipp is modern rock w/ a grunge influence whose lyrics & song titles are nautical in nature & hence created the Nautical Rock & Roll genre!. They have a few albums under their belt already & their name is a play on their vocalist’s actual name. Anyways, this one is my fave one from them off their latest record. Be looking for a forthcoming interview I will be doing with them here shortly.    … Continued →

Song of the Day: Justifide vs Reform The Resistance - The Way vs Kill Lies

Seen this band several years ago before they changed their name to Reform the Resistance. They were a modern rock/rapcore band back then which also did songs in Spanish. This album cover alone is enuff to check this band for crying out loud lol! Reform I wish would have caught on more to Christian or mainstream radio for that matter. They are so incredibly talented. Heck check out both bands stuff. You won’t be disappointed trust me…and I’ve heard most in the Christian industry.     Continued →

Song of the Day: Sometime Sunday - Blue

Sometime Sunday’s first LP on T&N is one of my fave albums of the 90s. They spun off into a few different directions such as Tragedy Ann, Rock N Roll Worship Circus, Tomfest, etc… This song may sound cool, but its a harsh reality to those of us who have ever dealt with lust. If one needs a good book to read on the subject, check out Ted Robert’s Pure Desire. Looks like I already wrote a SOTD on Tragedy Ann if you want to read it in the archives.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Theocracy - Hide in the Fairytale

TBH I never did get into power metal-until I heard Theocracy. They are that good. My Bro Ben (whom is starting our much long overdue metalcore band without me of course as I no longer live in Columbia SC. saw them maybe a year ago called me up & I had a conversation with their drummer. Anyways this song hits you like a ton of bricks as is a take on Romans 7:15-20. A child in sweet duplicity For innocence? Or slavery to nature And the bents that haunt him straight out of the womb?… Continued →

Song of the Day: Convictions - Eros vs The Price of Grace

So this SOTD goes out to my bros in Convictions whom I think has evolved to be the best metalcore band of the past 5 years. They are talented as all get out & are still deeply rooted Christians. I have seen them twice in the past 2 weeks & each time the crowd was into them also. I joke with Mike (their vocalist) on them playing this old song Eros & he chuckles. Anyways, Check out Pastor Rob’s reaction to The Price of Grace also.… Continued →

Song of the Day: Idle Cure - Holy Mountain

So I heard this song back in the day & fell in love with it. Now this is in those days that internet wasn’t around yet & I had no clue how to find it. Years went past & while digging thru Idle Cure’s stuff, whoa I just found my jam!  This is AOR & I get this is a punk site but these lyrics (partially pulling from Psalm 99:9) still ring all these years later. Hope y’all understand what I mean. Have you ever been up to the mountain Have you ever walked on holy ground We can all go without condition The veil’s been torn, there’s love all around The light shines from all directions You’ll cast way your cares Have you ever taken water from the river If you drink you’ll never thirst again It’s all been given to us freely No more servants, we’re called friends The path is narrow, the days are few Let’s walk up to the mountain and turn the old to new Shadows falling, harvest from the light I can feel the power of love Voices singing, praising the Most High Now I know, I’m standing on holy ground Have we lost the heart to worship Have we lost the song of praise Is our walk another chapter Reading words but we never bless His name The path is narrow, the days are few Let’s walk up to the mountain and turn the old to new Come enter in and you will see The temple door is broken free Lift your voice now don’t be shy Lift Him up to be glorified  … Continued →
