Stria – Chimera

Stria is a electronic rock band out of Orlando. They released the album Chimera in 2009 and toured for a good year promoting the album. Then at the end of 2010 producer and former Skillet guitar player, Ben Kasica contacted Stria offering to produce a new album with his media group. Stria Signed with Skies Fall Records in 2011 and began recording their new album.

They have a five song EP that is scheduled to come out this spring. From what I understand the sound of the new music is a little different than the music on this album. A little less rap-core with more electronic elements and a more of a straight hard rock sound. This band is for anyone that enjoys Red, Breaking Benjamin, and Skillet. Read the rest of this entry

Crazy Crazy Awesome Awesome – Truth

Crazy Crazy Awesome Awesome is not every ones cup of tea clearly, based on the reviews that I browsed through on the web. I saw it most labeled as crunkcore, which I can only guess is screamo, rap and electronica all wrapped up in one, because that's what it sounds like.

Many people compared them to Brokencyde, but I don't know who that is and didn't care to check them out. I think anyone who enjoys Family Force 5 should probably give it a try. Their styles are similar but unlike FF5's lyrics, which seem to be mostly about dancing and very little about their Christian faith, Crazy Crazy Awesome Awesome does not hide their faith in the least. They put out lots of great Christian messages through their lyrics, two songs are spoken word talking about scriptures. This is one thing that I really like about this album because since I downloaded it two weeks ago it is the only thing that my kids have been requesting to listen to, they LOVE it!!!
