Summary:

While Revolt focused a little more on a rhythmic sound than Resist, both play off each other well and sound more like two halves of an album instead of two EPs released a year apart.

Hundredth has a great sense of timing on their latest EP, Resist. Tracks will go at a feverish pace through sections of each song, before suddenly dropping off to give listeners a chance to absorb what they’ve heard. The rhythm section sets the pace and direction for the record, while the lead weaves in and out with soaring melodies and a wonderful harmonious compliment with Chadwick Johnson’s vocals layered over top. Resist is the follow up to Hundredth’s EP, Revolt, and Resist continues from where it left off. While Revolt focused a little more on a rhythmic sound than Resist, both play off each other well and sound more like two halves of an album instead of two EPs released a year apart.

The standout on Resist is “Demons” with its back and forth between the lead and rhythm throughout the track. (The lyrics focus on the struggle with personal demons and temptations.) Resist ends with one of the coolest instrumentals I’ve heard in a long time, a speech by S. Brian Willson. It starts out the track, similar to “Barren” on the Revolt EP, while the band plays the speech out, ending the EP with a beautifully haunting and simple melody.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. 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.
