When you hear the term "Christian band" or "Christian music," what thought comes to your mind? A group of people that say they are Christians, but their music would never inform you of that fact if they didn't tell you up front? Or, do you think of the direct opposite end of the spectrum, where the music is the exact same praise and worship songs played in churches on Sunday mornings, only with distorted guitars? 70times7 put a lot of thought and consideration into the "Truth in The Aftermath" album, as they did not want their sound to just become a generic praise and worship sound that seems to be overplayed on Contemporary Christian radio today, but at the same time they did not want to hide their faith behind obscure lyrics to where people would have to wonder: "Is this really Christian?" Pulling from various musical influences in their lives, ranging from Megadeth and Tourniquet all the way to P.O.D. and Rage Against The Machine, and many others in-between, and writing lyrics that minister to both the church and the secular market, in the writing vein of artists such as Larry Norman and Mark Heard, 70times7 pulls no punches when it comes to ministry ... both musically and lyrically. This is music that can rock you like a Saturday night, and minister to you like a Sunday morning.
