Passionate vocals. Gnashing guitars. A potent message.
These are the elements that make Red - both live and on their mighty debut, End of Silence - one of the most buzzed about bands to crash through the Christian rock world in recent memory.
First single, "Breathe Into Me," perfectly sums up this approach. Armed with angular, staccato riffs and Michael's throat shredding yet melodic vocals, the song is a fierce lament about looking back and not liking what you see. "This is where I lose myself when I keep running away from you," Michael's shouts. His redemption comes in a chorus backed with mournful strings and a yearning, almost pleading cry for God to "breathe your life into me - I still need you."
Red's duality - fiery, yet poignant - is best exemplified in the flip-sided duo of songs, "Already Over" and album closer "Already Over, Pt. 2." The first version is led by a dark, lilting piano and relentless snare before exploding in pure metal fury. Lyrically it documents a downward spiral, a running or falling away from something good. "Pt. 2" is the antithesis. A stripped down happy ending of sorts, where the lost soul finally finds its way home.
:On their debut release, the Pennsylvania quintet known as Red unleashes an awesome blast of shifty, melodic hardcore, punctuated by passionate vocals and laden with lush string arrangements and sharp guitar chops. Songs include 'Breathe Into Me,' 'Lost,' 'Already Over,' and more.
