Such an amazing album! I waited a long time for this and it did not disappoint. This album is a must! My favorite songs are the dead rejoice and the tower.

Stavesacre is back with a vengeance!!!

With a long hiatus one might wonder what a Stavesacre album might sound like. Stavesacre does not disappoint. The long time fan will hear hints of songs past and the new listener will wonder why they've just now heard of this band. Mark Salomon finds new life in his vocal cords and steps out of his box on some songs. On occasion you think you know exactly where he's going and then he throws you a curveball in his best possible way. The band finds themselves in similar territory but you'll never find any recycling done with these tracks. One listen brings the excitement of having a new Stavesacre record. The second listen through is a reminder that most music isn't this good.

The only thing about this album that was bad was that it ended. The music stopped after the last track, hymn, and there was no more music. Stavesacre has long provided a soundtrack to my life and this album has provided another chapter. I am older and have a family now but they deliver thoughtful music and some very goo rock music. Thank you gentlemen.

About Stavesacre

The hardcore CCM supergroup Stavesacre formed in 1995, with vocalist Mark Solomon (the Crucified, Native Son), guitarist Jeff Bellew (Crucified, Chatterbox), drummer Jeremy Moffat (the Blamed), and bassist Dirk Lemmenes. Heavy and leaning toward hardcore metal and thrash, their original sound had more in common with Die Happy or Tourniquet. The group released their debut album, Friction, in early 1996, followed a year later by Absolutes. In that time, Scaterd Few drummer Sam West had replaced Moffat. Stavesacre returned in 1999 with Speakeasy with a new second guitarist, Ryan Dennee. Bellew left very soon after to get married, so Stairwell guitarist Neil Samoy took his place. A collection, aptly titled Collective, summed up their period on Tooth & Nail, chronicling their slow transition from heavy metal to emo rock. By the time of their Nitro Records debut, (stavz'a'ker), the band had fully transitioned into an emo band. The group released two full-lengths shortly thereafter: 2001's Collective and 2002's (stavz'a'ker). ~ John Bush
