Day of Fire was a Tennessee post grunge band. Vocalist Josh Brown has a quasi similar story to Head from Korn. Both realized they had a drug problem & let it go when they came to Jesus. This song is so powerful & I have to turn it up every time I hear it. Jesus will never leave us. Can I get an Amen! … Continued →
