The Liner/Sleeve Notes:
Thanks to Jesus Christ our Lord and God!
Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.
John 1:12  T
his album is dedicated to those who have not yet received the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior…. We’re Coming!!!!”

Personal Review:  
So, the album opens with the unlisted track, “Stand As One” which is all together a pretty catchy track, that is basically the easiest thing to sing a long with. The second track is titled “Satan’s Lies” which opens with a pretty heavy drum solo from Chris Garrett, the song overall proves to be a pretty decent track. It is then followed by the song “Living for Eternity” which once more, opens with a drum solo, then a guitar solo. I find that a lot of the lyrics sound too similar (in my honest opinion), then comes the track “Get Away” which is… an alright track? Then the A-Side closes with the track, “Tonight” which is pretty much, a good way to close the A-Side of any heavy metal Christian record?

The B-Side opens with the ever so wonderful, “Satan Leave that Boy Alone” (which if you work with me, you’d know that it has become quite a joke.) It is well written, and delivered – but some things… are just not made for this time? The next song is titled “Lies of Men” and by this point those who’re listening will have begun to realize that almost every song has the same opening guitar riff, but the lyrics are good. For the third track, “Holy Right” they decided to open the track with a “test of the emergency broadcast system” – AND name the song after the band, and NOT use the same guitar riff for the track. Though, it does take like half a lifetime to get to the actual lyrics, which is kind of annoying, but I do enjoy how the entire band keeps yelling out “IT’S YOUR HOLY RIGHT!” – anyways the B-Side closes with the song “Stop Killing the Children” which seems like it was written with the easiest beats (or whatever it’s called) – up ’til the chorus comes.

BUT WAIT! There’s more! “Stand As One” has a reprise! Who’d have thought? Not me.

Special Guest Review:  
Now, I usually don’t do special guest reviews, but I did have someone who is a singer (Not a famous one or anything) listen to the record, so this her (Ariel) review.
Stand As One“, while the track is okay, there’s only one sentence repeated and it just didn’t do it for me. “Satan’s Lies“, the words are actually nice and almost deep, Thumbs up. “Living for Eternity“, like the music at the intro the tone of the voice doesn’t match the music, not my favorite. “Get Away“, it sounds like a children’s version of the bible, ’nuff said. “Tonight“, I highly suggest having premarital sex while listening to this song. “Satan Leave that Boy Alone“, This is my mind sounds like the band trying to tell Satan to not make boys gay or else they won’t go to Heaven. Disgraceful. “Lies of Men“, this song is a lie, but I like it. The repetitive use of the word “Jesus” is very original. “Holy Right“, holy shit – the intro is most of the song. “Stop Killing the Children“, Chuck the dog liked it. “Stand As One (Reprise)“, please refer to the first song review.

    thank you for the review. we were so nieve when this album was released. I wish we could rewrite and take a different approach at it. this band actually spawned known band Ironwrath which is superior over this band minus the vocalist Keith Miles. Holy Right is just a cult classic band which is cool.
