Album Review

Over the years, Christian rockers have embraced everything from pop-metal to new wave to thrash. So it was inevitable that some bands would use rap-metal to promote a Christian message, which is what Pillar does on Fireproof. Musically, this Kansas band mines the same rap-metal and rap-rock waters as Kid Rock, Rage Against the Machine, Fat, Limp Bizkit, and Linkin Park. But lyrically, Pillar doesn't have Rage's anti-establishment outlook any more than it shares Kid Rock and Limp Bizkit's macho bad-boy perspective; instead, Fireproof is a place where chugging, downtuned guitars are combined with a Christian-oriented message. Pillar, however, isn't in-your-face or militant about Christianity — Fireproof isn't telling listeners, "Convert to Christianity, or else." If anything, optimistic tracks like "Echelon" and "Behind Closed Doors" are promoting Christianity in a subliminal way; to put it bluntly, Fireproof doesn't sound like a Jerry Falwell sermon. And because its lyrics aren't taking the fire-and-brimstone approach, this CD stands a good chance of crossing over to secular audiences. Musically, Fireproof isn't innovative — anyone who spent a lot of time listening to alternative rock stations in the late '90s or early 2000s has no doubt heard a lot of similar-sounding bands. And the lyrics aren't groundbreaking either; since the early '90s, P.O.D. has been demonstrating that rap-metal lyrics can be spiritual and optimistic. Nonetheless, this more uplifting vision of rap-metal isn't an idea that has been run into the ground, and some metalheads will find it rather refreshing to hear another rap-metal band that isn't totally dark. All things considered, there is a lot to like about this solid, if derivative, CD, which originally came out on the Nashville-based Flicker label in 2002 and was re-released by MCA the following year. [The album was also pressed in bonus DVD and bonus track formats.]

These guys are awesome! They rock way hard for Christ. The lyrics are absolutely some of the best lyrics I've heard from anyone. The guitars are also some of the best I've heard. These guys are true Jesus Freaks! Pillar is one of my favorite bands along w/Underoath, Kutless, Skillet, Day of Fire, and Decyfer Down. If you like any of those bands or just awesome hardcore music, Pillar will rock your face off!! Rock on Pillar!!!!


i bought this album a year ago when it was getting old and i ended up liking all of the songs but echelon just blew me away. despite not being in the top ten songs i think that echelon is the best song ever by pillar.


I don't have this "Limited Edition" version, but I do have the normal "Fireproof" CD, and it's amazing. I would give every song on here a 6 out of 5 stars. The only thing that kind-of bugged me is the transition between "Stay Up" and "Behind Closed Doors", but that's on the normal CD. My favorite 3 songs from this CD: 1. Echelon 2. Hindsight 3. Fireproof Buy the CD, its worth it.

Pillar is comprised of Rob Beckley (vocals), Lester Estelle (drums), Noah Henson (guitar), and Kalel (bass). These Christian rockers with an alt-metal edge have been honing their infectious sound since 1998 while attending Ft. Hays State University in northwestern Kansas. A deal with Flicker was inked in 2000 after the band's self-released debut, Metamorphosis, impressed the label. Within months, Pillar followed things up with Above. Their first single, "Open Your Eyes," was popular on the college...
