又是来自美国的乐队,这个国家如井喷一样源源不断的产出美国式的中产阶级愤怒!!年轻人迫不及待的给自己过剩的荷尔蒙找一个喷射的出口,The Great Commission就这样应运而生,作为乐队的首张专辑,水准还算可以,中速的Hardcore.如果你喜欢Hatebreed,那你会在他们身上看到影子...
The Great Commission was born in 2008 when Angela Razo and Justin Singh disbanded Every Man For Himself in search of something more significant. TGC has their roots in Redlands, CA where they are surrounded by the spiritual influence of bands like Sleeping Giant and xDeathstarx. However, the bands they look to for guidance aren’t limited to their hometown. TGC draw musically from the bands they grew up listening to and mix the dynamics of these older, heavy, hardcore bands (including Point of Recognition, No Innocent Victim and Hatebreed) with the new school brutality of bands like Impending Doom and Acacia Strain. This combination is an essential quality that is winning fans of both new and old sounds. Playing with a 6 member line up, 3 guitarists and 3 full stacks, Angela, Justin, DJ, Christian, Alex and Rodney put on an intense live show. Says vocalist Justin Singh: "We play every single show like it’s our last. For us this is more than just making music, this is our worship."
Razo, guitar player and back-up vocalist for The Great Commission makes clear the purpose of the band: "Being a part of the hardcore scene for 8 years we have come to the realization that the scene is full of broken, angry, hateful kids that come from broken homes and dysfunctional families. We can speak to them from experience because we used to be those kids. We know their broken, hardened hearts can be healed and we use our music as a way to reach them."
The Great Commission "And Every Knee Shall Bow", like all Strike First Records physical titles, is a limited edition digipak made out of 95% post consumer recycled cardstock and no PVC plastic.
