From opening to closing, there is something unique about this album. August Burns Red’s latest full-length release, Rescue & Restore, shows you the experience and knowledge the band has gained from all their years with this fifth album. The Manheim, PA band’s 11-track powerhouse solidifies their claim as one of the premier bands – not only in the genre – but in the whole industry as well.

Rescue & Restore starts off fast, keeps the momentum going, and it continues to pick up throughout the album – there is no slowing down. There is nothing out of place – just solid, technical guitars and light speed drums, constantly pushing the screams of front man Jake Luhrs. With songs like the opening track “Provision,” and the sure-to-be crowd-pleasing “Beauty in Tragedy,” their new material not only sounds great on record, but it will be sure to keep audiences ignited during their never-ending touring schedule.

Each song is fresh, new and full of heart-pounding music and racing lyrics. There is nothing is cookie-cutter about this album; it’s produced, engineered and beautifully put together. Open the gates, because August Burns Red has returned home to their throne at the top of the industry.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
