"The Night is dark and I am far from home... lead thou me on!"
In this dark world, can you see the light? At times does it feel that God has withdrawn from our presence? Have you suffered a dark night of the soul?
This is the soundtrack for these times! Inspired by personal struggles and triumphs, "Dark Night of the Soul" is sure to touch your soul intimately. Lyrically profound, personal, and inspiring, this piece of thrash metal artistry was forged from the best of thrash metal in its heyday. "Dark Night" will please fans of old - school Metallica, Megadeth, and Tourniquet. Very heavily progressive, Last Rites takes an old style and puts a new twist on it. You will hear folk influences in the Celtic - infused "Lorica" Beautiful church organ tones juxtaposed to crushing guitars in "Cross Not Taken" Bass guitar solos flying overhead in "Confessions" and even a rocking power ballad in "The Pillar of the Cross".
If you miss the glory days of thrash metal but don't want the "same 'ol, same ol'", then Last Rites' "Dark Night of the Soul" needs to find its way to you! If you want music to stir your soul, "Dark Night of the Soul" is what you need. If you want truly Christian music with an uncompromising message of hope and mercy in this world filled with hate, you need to pick up Last Rites' "Dark Night of the Soul"!
"Tear off my ears, so that I may hear!
Tear out my eyes, so that I may see!
Rip out my tongue, so that I may fill!
Be filled with the Spirit, with the bread from heaven!"
Lyrics from "The Pillar of the Cloud" and "Say What You Mean"
