Editors’ Notes

Oxygen: Inhale nudges Thousand Foot Krutch’s signature fusion of hard rock aggression and hip-hop flow a tad closer to the pop mainstream without compromising the group's core mission. Lead singer Trevor McNevan sounds reinvigorated here, coming across as both defiant and reflective as he confronts the corruptions of a fallen world. Bassist Joel Bruyere and drummer Steve Augustine combine solid command of the groove with a suppleness that keeps the songs light on their feet even as they pack a wallop. “Like a Machine,” “Untraveled Road,” and “Born This Way” (not the Lady Gaga tune) launch the album with a triple assault of passionate rhymes and unrelenting rhythms. The band crank into high gear with “Give It to Me,” an assertive soul cry set to a grinding metal riff. If the upbeat tracks are unrelenting, Oxygen: Inhale's ballads are disarmingly tender. The acoustic-centered “Light Up” and the atmospheric “In My Room” are particularly good vehicles for McNevan’s softer side. “Glow” closes this well-rounded album on an appropriately luminous note.

BORN THIS WAY

At 50 years of age, I have never been stagnant or satisfied with one genre of music. I especially become turned off by artists that stick to the same sound album after album after album because it's "safe" or it's the sound that got them the success initially. TFK has been one of my favorite bands because they have skillfully evolved knowing when to maneuver their sound to stay relevant to the listeners. Like the church worship, I believe that the leader must be willing not to become polarized in one style but stay relavant to the old and young to the point of not turning off the whole body whom are there to bring their worship before God. (but I regress). The single 'Born this Way' made me curious because of the huge success Lady Gaga had with a song of the same title. This brings me to the most important part of the review. Though my ears are the gateway to sound, it's the mind, there after, that becomes the gate to the heart. Words (lyrics) can be a malignant cancer to our soul or a healing breath whether it comes from a christian or non christian if it's true and not in opposition to God's written word. Trevor has always seemed to speak to me that stirs thoughts and emotion to my beliefs and life experiences. 'Born this Way' conjures a fighting spirit that is within (like John the baptist). "...my blood was the wrong type, so I had to give my life" The song gives me the impression that only by Christs' blood are we forgiven when we die to ourselves and live for Him (a daily feat). I love this group and hope and pray that they stay relevant to our listening world and more importantly, to a God whom we too often diminish or confine. How we would fall to our knees if we really knew Him and His glory and power. Keep pumping out great music boys!

This is going to be epic.

Super excited to hear this album. This is a band that somehow grows, develops and cultivates its sound over time. Each album has been a beacon of musical precision. After watching their Pledge campaign, clips and previews, it is clear we are in store for something explosive.

If you are a fan of rap, rock, metal and/or punk music, TFK has something to show you. Get ready to breath!

Bold Album

Like just about everybody, I was shocked by the amount of slow songs and acoustic instrumentals on this record. If The End Is Where We Begin was their heaviest album, Oxygen: Inhale is their mellowest one to date. These songs are really personal and have more of a worship vibe than any of their older work, and the lyrics reflect their faith in a more direct way, which I really respect. This was a very bold move for TFK, but I love the pure simplicity and beauty in this album. I’m looking forward to the second half of this album, Oxygen: Exhale, which I predict will contain the energetic hard rock they have become legendary for. I will always keep being a TFK fan. If you guys ever read this, keep on doing your thing.

Toronto-area Christian rockers Thousand Foot Krutch first appeared in 1997, when Trevor McNevan, Joel Bruyere, and Steve Augustine started putting a worship song spin on a rap-metal sound similar to Limp Bizkit or Korn.
