Two days ago I went to visit my parents at our families cabin. Well, apparently they were out when i got there so i couldn’t get in. I had some time to kill so i decided to go to Walmart. I was in there looking for a specific CD that they have for download on walmart.com. They didn’t have it but they had another one i’d been meaning to try out.
“The Silver Cord” – The Classic Crime
I have heard of the Classic Crime for a couple years now. For some reason i never checked them out. Just recently i found out that they are actually a part of Warped Tour this year and that a single from their last album has gotten considerable secular radio play. I’ve really been meaning to check them out so when i saw their newest album at walmart i decided to pick it up. After listening to it a few times i have to say it’s pretty good, not amazing but good. I actually think they sound like a christian version of Panic At the Disco, or Fallout Boy (which is probably why they are so popular). Pretty decent CD. Price Paid: $8.87
This weekend was Open Grave Records “Free Download Weekend” and they had three christian metal albums for download absolutely free (and legal! 🙂 ). I downloaded them all but only one was really my taste.
“The Habit of Fire” – Kekal
This is a pretty cool album. Experimental, Avant-Garde/Doom Metal with mostly clean vocals. It’s a really cool album. The lead singer’s voice is annoiying on a few tracks but other than that it’s pretty solid. At one point he even sounds like Getty Lee from Rush which is kind of crazy. The music is a nice blend of metal and other stuff… they use horns and synths and all kinds of crazy stuff at different points on the album. This was a free download but i will probably look for the actual CD. Price Paid: $0 (Thanks Open Grave Records!)
Stay tuned for more updates! Thanks for reading!
