Album Review

Day of Fire was born when former Full Devil Jacket vocalist Josh Brown experienced the grace of God following a heroin overdose in 2001. After his transformation the building blocks began to assemble for what is now Day of Fire. The bands' self-titled debut opus on Essential is a testimony to where Brown has been but more importantly, where he's going. Lyrically the disc is a window to Brown's struggles and eventual victory over drug addictions and emptiness. Cuts like "Through the Fire" and "Time" suggest a man who has experienced transformation with the latter being a warning to those hesitant in making positive change. Musically this disc is rich in textures. There are the savory acoustic moments à la "Cornerstone" and the harmonic filled "Rain Song."The true flavor of the release, though, leans on a straightforward rock vibe. Guitars are chunky throughout with an apt assortment of tasty guitar fills and nuances to fill the void. "Fade Away" is a groove-oriented blues-filled rock piece. The cut is centered by a solid riff while backwards recorded guitar peppers the flavoring. "Jacobs Dream" is a tune that derives its legs from a '70s rock groove. The songs bridge rings echoes of classic Sabbath or Zeppelin tones. Day of Fire is a sterling debut. The disc serves up a strong groove while maintaining excellence in lyrical integrity and musical heft.

Raw Post-Grunge with Spirit

This is an excellent post-grunge, modern rock cd. The guitars are crisp and heavy, the pace mostly midtempo. The cd is consistent musically and hints at many pertinent themes which are of relevance to all. Joshua Brown is a comparable to Chris Daughtry or Scott Stapp. His gravely vocals are excellent and make him unique. To keep that edge throughout a concert would be amazing to witness. The passionate vocals border on hardcore in their straining but are still controlled when pushed to the limit. There is variety here yet the band has enough sensibility to not stray from their own sound, from what works for them. Through the Fire is akin to Daughtry's It's Not Over. While mostly midtempo, the band picks up the pace on Detainer, Time, I am the Door, and Reap and Sow. The gothic bgv's on Detainer are hauntingly cool. Cornerstone is a cross-over acoustic ballad that rightly garners some airplay on more contemporary stations. The mellower Fade Away and Rain have a Third Day/ Guardian feel in both their arrangements and their content. Jacob's Dream is reminiscent of 12 Stones. Day of Fire is a voice of hope in an empty world. Their flame certainly shines, like light in darkness. While they understand the despair of humanity, they also reveal options to such so-called dead-ends.

awesome

It was after Full Devil Jacket lead singer Josh Brown overdosed on heroin in 2000, upon the conclusion of the band's first tour, that it became clear to him that he needed to change his life or risk death, so instead of completing the next Full Devil Jacket album Brown spent the next few years trying to clean up his life, finding religion in the process. Though he thought he would never enter the music business again, Brown didn't stop writing songs, and around this same time, Essential Records,...
