Christian Ska, Punk, and Hardcore in Spanish

So a few months back, a Christian deathcore/hardcore band from Matamoros, Mexico took the scene by storm with their message of faith, hope, and love that comes through Christ our Saviour. That band was My Place Was Taken. What seperated them from others doing the like is that their lyrics are all in Spanish. As I was viewing through some of the comments left on those articles here on IVM, I noticed that other readers were interested in other Christian artists that also sang in Spanish.… Continued →

REVIEW : Young Poet - Thrive in a Modern Era

Punk rock and pizza are similar in more ways than one. While the two can complement each other quite well, music – like food – requires a recipe. Unfortunately, Young Poet’s Thrive in a Modern Era tastes more like a dubious experiment than a well-made pizza pie. Opening song “Alizaren,” catches me completely by surprise with the spoken word akin to Being As An Ocean or Listener. I thought this was pop punk? Once “Better Hearts” comes on, I find out that it is … at least, for the most part, in retrospect.… Continued →
