music to dream to - christian pop/rock, white metal
The music of Phillip and Natalie LaRue is a mixture of pop, rock and ballad, of course with Christian texts. Brother and sister, their voices blend harmonously together and create a sound I could easily imagine in the top ten.
From the first CD, I especially love "Reason" and "Someday" - the CD was my Christmas present from my brother. The second one was his gift to my birthday in 2001... here, I love most of all "Theory of Flight", "Fly" and "Fallen for you".
|1. Reason||6. Waiting Room||11. Run to You (the Piano Song)|
|2. Picture Frame||7. Always be|
|3. Someday||8. One Day of the Week|
|4. Fallen King||9. Katie|
|5. As She cries||10. Stars|
|1. Theory of Flight||6. Near to me||11. One white Tulip|
|2. Wake up||7. Brianna's Song|
|3. Fly||8. No Goodbyes|
|4. Jaded||9. I can't sing|
|5. Fallen for you||10. Seem to be|
The music of Godrock is not metal, it rather falls under the category of "pop/rock". Some of their songs are so wonderful I want to cry. Try "Wild Horses", "Take my Hand" and "Praise awaits". Not only intelligent texts, but also a sound you won't forget.
|Let there be dancing|
|1. Let there be Dancing||6. Procession||11. Psalm 48: Walk about Zion|
|2. Follow the Lion||7. Not be shaken||12. Prayer Song|
|3. Praise awaits||8. Kingdom Celebration||13. We will stand|
|4. Christ the solid Rock||9. Praise be to God my Rock|
|5. His Love endures||10. Crush the Walls|
|Live at Joel's Place|
|1. Wild Horses||6. Fall on Me||11. Lift Me up|
|2. Upon this Rock||7. Breathe||12. Take away the Veil|
|3. Be Released||8. Take my Hand||13. New Shoes Blues|
|4. Joel's Place||9. Trample on the Ashes|
|5. Sing to Him a new Song||10. Crowns down|
Bloodgood (named after their bassist, Michael Bloodgood) plays 'White Metal', that means their music is Heavy Metal with Christian songtexts. Strong E-guitars, characteristic vocals and intelligent texts are their trademark. Many of their songs are ballads.
I love their music. Singing along's not only good against aggression, but also a nice way to paint the ceiling in your new appartment... ;-) [My neighbours might still think otherwise, though.].
|1. Anguish and Pain||5. New Age Illusion||9. Shakin' It||13. Do or Die|
|2. Battle of the Flesh||6. Crucify||10. Killing the Beast||14. The Presence|
|3. Eat the Flesh||7. The Messiah||11. Alone in Suicide||15. Top of the Mountain|
|4. Never be the Same||8. What's following the Grave||12. Out of the Darkness||16. Black Snake|
|All stand together|
|1. S.O.S.||6. Kingdom come||11. Streetlight Dancer|
|2. All stand together||7. Fear no Evil||12. I want to live in Your Heart|
|3. Escape from the Fire||8. Help Me||13. New Shoes Blues|
|4. Out of Love||9. Rounded are the Rocks|
|5. Say Goodbye||10. Lies in the Dark|
The music of Whitecross is also White Metal. Lead Vocals sung by Scott Wenzel, the band's songs are very catchy with wonderful refrains. Especially "In his Hands". God, I love that song! This CD has accompanied me for three weeks through Scotland, and is still likely to end up in my car's radio.
|In the Kingdom|
|1. No second Chances||6. Love is our Weapon||11. Holy War|
|2. We know what's right||7. The eternal Fire (Guitar Solo)|
|3. In the Kingdom||8. You will find It there|
|4. In his Hands||9. If He goes before Me|
|5. Good enough||10. Tell Me the Time|
Scott Wenzel's music is very similar to the sound of "Whitecross". White Metal in form of mostly ballads, you can't help but sing alongside him after listing to the CD for two, three times. I especially like "Sarah" and "Are You faithful".
|Heart like Thunder|
|1. One God, one Love||6. Sarah|
|2. Give up Your Heart||7. Heart like Thunder|
|3. Heart on Fire||8. Are You faithful|
|4. His Eyes||9. Find our Way|
|5. He laid aside his Glory||10. You gave Everything|
White Metal - Sampler
If you'd like to try White Metal, this CD is a good start - the title is apt. A sampler with songs not only from Bloodgood and Whitecross (my favorites), this is a CD I can wholeheartedly recommend each and every song of. Not a single one of them isn't good, and my preferences tend to shift according to my mood. My favorites often are "Just a Man", "Will I find Love" and "I miss the Rain".
