Phantasmagorical Freek Friday by KM Wilsher

Here's my monthly music review. Or 'music according to the freek'

I am a “Freek” for Christian music that can be described these words: hard, speed, rock, Goth, metal, alternative, grunge, heavy. . . oh, you get the picture.

This week I'm seeing RED *** I don't know the meaning behind the name, but I like the name RED for a Christian rock mega group.

RED lays out electric rock instrumentation, adds great lyrics that glorify His name, and tops it off with great vocals broken up by subtle harmonies. I'd say these guys from Tennessee are like Kutless meets Skillet edged off by a little Pillar. But their sound is all their own!

I know you'll want to hear them after reading this quote by one of it's members:
"At the end of the day we're Christians before anything. That's exactly the reason we're doing what we're doing. We've been saved by grace, this is what it's done for us, and we believe that it can do the same for you."
--Anthony Armstrong

It doesn't get any clearer than that. These guys are fellow Jesus Freaks and not shy to say so. In a world where compromise and beat around the bush faith statements rule -I'm a fan and seeing RED.

If you have time, check out some of their tunes!

For heavy, click the words below to listen to:

For a softer, longing call to heaven, click the words below to listen to:

For their newest release, click the words below to listen to:

What group are you a fan of?

Nice. I liked the heavy.

I'm kind of in a music funk right now, and not in a good way.

I can't find anything that I really want to listen to, but my hubby and I finally getting together with a drummer tomorrow to work on some originals.

Wow, that is HEAVY!

Well, I'm now into Francesca Battistelli. FREE to be ME is her song I'm listening to lately. Also, Matthew West has another song out that is really rockin' my world. I'm thinking I'll put it on Musical Monday next week. It's really good. It's called, The Motions.

Great post, Gzusfreek

Kat~When you said you were in a funk, I thought you were saying you were listening to "Funk music" LOL. . .I bet the jam session tomorrow might get you out of your funk! Have fun. I really like the "heavy" :-)

Lynn~I've not heard of Francesca or M West I'll look for them on Musical Mondays at! :)

Thanks, both of you, for stopping by!
