Cast the First Stone

An Album By

The Great Commission

Review by

Let’s play a game. I write only the most important words about the new The Great Commission album, deal? Cool.

New Album. Cast The First Stone. Eleven tracks. Vulnerable from the outset. Singing … well, singing done well. Do I like melodic vocals in hardcore now? Maybe. Pulling it off for sure.

Classic hardcore crew-alongs, with the Commish twist. Sincerely performed. Emotional (not sappy, emotional; they’re different). Not soft, even with the singing. Perfect, honest title track. Honest album. Will they offend? Maybe definitely. Hopefully. Honest music should. It should affect us all.

There’s growth. Development. Check it out. And think about that, too – Cast The First Stone. That’s heavy.

I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
