music to dream to - christian pop/rock, white metal

recommendations by allaire mikháil


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".

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.

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.].

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.

Scott Wenzel

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".

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".
