This is were they got their stuff together. Rocking USPM that at certain songs really really crushes. Close to the Edge is such a excellent song, Mike Lee with his both Bruce Dickinson and David Defeis sounding voice is phenomenal in that one. Another highlight is the ripping Living Dead, it so cool to end the album with that one, even if I wonder if it wouldn't have been the perfect opening song. Those two are the best songs but most of the songs here are high quality metal. The lyrics are still of course about Jesus and other controversial topics as abortion and suicide, so if you're easily turned off by that stuff then keep away. But for those who missed out on them and love USPM check out Close to the Edge and Living Dead, you won't regret it.
And what do you call assassins who accuse assassins anyway, my friend?

I like this band, I agree the lyrics can be a turn off sometimes with Christian rock & metal.
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.
