I'm Talking to You

by Messenger

Modern Metal sounds kick hard but with originality and progressive artistry. The message of Christ is couched in an amusement park roller coaster ride of vocal and guitar solo highs that pierce the sky and bottom end lows that rumble the floor. Get on.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Messenger is a new act, having played together since only the Summer of 2008. The sound is birthed out of their favorite Heavy Metal and Progressive Rock sounds such as Rush, Led Zeppelin, Nickelback, Daughtry and Sabbath. The songs explode with humongous power chords in innovative rhythms. The melodic vocals soar with great Rock tones and the message in the words always grabs attention. The Metal guitar solos are pure, musical and fast. Get on the ride to glory!

I love the 80's
If you were into the whole 80's metal scene, then this disc is for you. I can hear the Sabbath influences as well as the early days of Motorhead. The production is a little raw, but that just makes it feel even more like it came from my favorite decade. Overall, it's a good release and worthy of being in my coolection.

Angel J Vargas

Great!
If you love 70s and 80s metal like Sabbath, Rush, Zeppelin and a touch of early Petra, give these guys a chance! THe production is organic, you can hear every single instrument and understand every lyric! This is one of the best cds I have bought lately (and I buy many!).

After a certain time things come back into fashion. Messenger have a sound that takes you back to the late '80s, when Pure Metal Records was at its peak. Back then the major releases were Saint 'Too Late For Living', Bride 'Live To Die' and Whitecross 'Hammer & Nail'. Fast forward 20 years to 2008 and Washington DC's Messenger here release their debut. The reason that I am referencing Messenger back to those late '80s Christian metal acts is not just the sound, but also the simple biblical messages in their lyrics. "Hell Is No Party" is a glorious heavy metal romp with "One time you shake your fist in the air/One time you shout to the sky/One time you destroy what good could be there/One time you just got too high/God says it's sin and you say 'Oh well, I'll laugh with my friends when I get to Hell'/ Hell is no party, Hell is no fun/You face the Maker (and eternity) in a crowd of one/Hell is no party!" Next up is the epic "King Of Kings" with its smoking guitar solos and time changes. It is based on Revelation and the return of Christ on a white horse. The chorus is "And his vesture dipped in blood/He is the Lamb who bore the cross/He is the mighty King Of Kings/The war shall not be lost". "Bright And Morning Star" starts out as a gentle ballad before throwing in hard rock riffing. This is followed by "Don't Shoot The Messenger" which beats you around the head with the chorus "Don't shoot the messenger/You know I bring good news/If you feel the fear of God/You know what you must choose/Don't shoot the messenger/my message - don't refuse". "Forbidden Love" is a thoughtful ballad about being attracted to a beautiful woman, but not knowing whether she shares the same beliefs. There entails a lot of soul-searching. The musicianship on this album is great, especially the twin guitar attack. The lyrics may leave non-Christians puzzled due to some of the biblical/church language but no one can doubt that this is well executed old school metal.
