Hey metal/goth/alternative/hard rock fans! Phantasmagorical Freek Friday is all about musicians, groups, and songs glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ in this genre.
PFF! Have you missed it? I have. And now: SKILLET
What I like about Skillet is their eclectic variety of instruments. Of course, they stay true to the metal/alternative sound that I adore, but they add a measure of melody and stringed instruments that move my heart. Their lyrics --and what I’ve heard of their lifestyles-- are consistent with Christian values and; therefore, I am proud to support them and to recommend them to anyone I come in contact with.
There is another factor that endears me to Skillet–Lori Peters. . .the female drummer!!! As I look through Skillet media I see she’s left the band; but Jen Ledger replaced her in 2008, so there is still a female drummer! (I play -therefore I am a fan)
A youth pastor encouraged the founding members to form this band. Their name? Here is what I found on wikipedia: Coming from different styles of rock music, the two decided to name the band Skillet, since it was like "throwing it all in a Skillet, and see what you come up with". And I love what they are cookin' up!
My favorite song to date by this Jesus freak quartet is: Savior
CLICK HERE --- SAVIOR
The video is not so special. Not bad. But not sick. I have a whole very, very hot video in my head for this track. . .they haven’t asked me for it yet. :)
Upon the birth of the idea of Phantasmagorical Freek Friday, I knew I'd showcase this rockin' bunch. I've held off too long to give Skillet a gzusfreek center stage. Skillet is one of my top two fav bands.
Hope you enjoy. What is your favorite Skillet song?
