PFF was designed to showcase metal/goth/alternative/hard rock artists who give Jesus Christ glory.
So there he was -- JOSH BROWN -- shooting up cocaine all day and leading his then band: FULL DEVIL JACKET onto the stage at night. In the late 1990’s JOSH BROWN possessed a measure of success. FULL DEVIL JACKET opened for bands like Creed and Train. But the party - the drugs began to own him. The drugs became a god as Josh lived in rebellion; and after a while he came to believe that the true God was just mad at him, and would never forgive him for the rock star lifestyle he lived.
In 2000 Josh Brown almost died of a heroin overdose. However, through rehab and his wife's loving family (who are strong believers in the Gospel), Josh turned his life over to Jesus Christ and truly began to follow Him. Josh then formed a new band: DAY OF FIRE, and they are using their talents to glorify God and pass the truth of His love along.
DAY OF FIRE. What a name. I read that Josh Brown’s conversion felt much like the Day of Pentecost when tongues of fire appeared dancing above the apostles’ heads as the Holy Spirit poured out. Josh may not have seen flames, but he termed his “come to Jesus” moment a “Day of Fire”. Great name! Great testimony!
I really don't want to skip over this. Rock "legends" like Jim Morrison and Curt Cobain died at the bloody hands of drug addiction. Many do not get a second chance after an overdose, and if they do, most don't take it. Josh Brown did not die that fearful day he overdosed on heroin; and he seized that second chance, letting Jesus come in and change and mold him. Thank you, Jesus.
Day of Fire has some amazing stuff out. Of course, I like the heavy
