Building 429’s new release, We Won’t Be Shaken, is a heartwarming record with songs that will be stuck in your head for days to come. The album does explore some relatively new styles for the soft rock/CCM group, including the introduction to “Get Up” and the symphonic elements in “Best and Worst.”

Overall, this album rehashes a lot of the previous sound of Building 429, so it may be a little bit of an upset to fans that were looking for something new or adventurous out of the North Carolina quintet. Nonetheless, this is still a passion-filled record that will also make you want to get up and move. For fans of Kutless, MercyMe, and Skillet.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
