Album Review: Eddy Mann – “Worship In Spirit And Truth” LP

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

It’s rare nowadays to find an artist that spiritually captivated you in the way Eddy Mann does. With his new album Worship In Spirit And Truth, we delve into a realm of authentic musicianship and inspirational songs that soothe your soul and bring your faith to greater heights.

Before the album released on October 5th, we got a taste of the record with the album’s opening track “Every Little Thing.” A sensually uplifting song that introduces us to one of the many chapters this album takes us through. Eddy‘s vocals are on point and have a vibrant feel with great control. His voice is very multifaceted and he implements very effective melodies into every song, focusing on the key points of his songwriting structures that really put the musicianship factors at the forefront.

One thing you will notice though is Eddy‘s signature sound and overall aura as an artist. Each track offers up a new angle of Eddy‘s ability and between his bluesy guitar swells and ambient vocal style, we get a special treat every time. His lyrical content strongly focuses on the worshipping aspect and really encompasses the light that faith in the Lord can have in those that see and hear Eddy‘s music and the messages that are delivered.

The production value on this album are versatile and never rehash the same ingredients, and aren’t afraid to explore different avenues of mastering a song in its own right. However, the best part about this album is despite hearing a different approach in May of these songs, you can immediately recognize Eddy‘s signature sound and artistic merit, putting his spiritual touch on every track and every melody that is graced within.

This is an album for anyone and everyone that really appreciates a musically spiritual atmosphere, and really puts their faith in the Lord in whole. Eddy Mann has been a continued vital voice for songs of worship, and Worship In Spirit And Truth is another masterpiece added to his legacy as an artist and creator.

Worship In Spirit And Truth is currently available on all digital music retailers and music streaming outlets. You will not regret picking up a copy, and you’ll be glad we recommended it to you.

Artist Review: Shining Force 

Review by: Justyn Brodsky

For those of you who yearn for heavy metal’s epic years of Iron Maiden’s Number of the Beast, the entire Judas Priest catalogue, and Metallica’s first 3 albums…we have a special treat for you.

We have another reason not to mess with Texas. These Pasadena rockers are bringing back a sound that never left in the first place. Christian/Metal band Shining Force by way of solid guitar riffs and a stampede of a rhythm section remind us that true metal is still at the heart of all metal fans alike, despite the additives to the genre over the years (i.e.: core, black, death, speed, nu, melodic, and any other word you can attach).

Starting off with their track “Rapture”, we get served up with some unstoppable energy and guitar riffs that cruise into a very melodic and in-your-face verse. The vocals sustain an impressive range and definitely have a Maiden-worthy vibrato that sets the classic tone for their take on heavy metal’s glory days. There are powerful drum films, very well-crafted dueling guitars and a heavy hitting overall dynamic.

Cruising over to the title track of their upcoming album, the energy and innovation is still ever present in “By the Blood”. A track that offers up more integrated songwriting techniques and play on tempos. The guitars are very gain-fueled, crisp, and crawl right under your skin. It’s impossible to ignore the string-attack this song has and once again, we have a vocal range that was born for this breed of metal. A breed that has manifested into endless influences for today’s modern metal, and a legacy that fuels itself through bands like Shining Force. Just like all the metal greats that sit in your collection, Shining Force fits right in, and helps push the legacy onward.

The band is embarking on a full U.S. Tour this summer in support of the upcoming anticipated album, By the Blood. An album you will be very glad you purchased when it’s released. So keep an eye out to see when Shining Force is coming to your town. Mark your calendars to make sure you know when they arrive to come make their mark! You will not be disappointed.
