Interesting project. Transforming a whole biblical book word-to-word into songs sounds pretty difficult to me.

Oh wow....just checked out the "about" section on their FB page.  Greely is both vocalist AND guitarist.  Intrigued.....was not expecting that. 


Song sounds decent.

Hmm, sound better than I expected.

Wasn't Greely fired from Iced Earth for antisemitic remarks by the way? Just curious, because it sound like a pretty big step in the right direction to use biblical passages as lyrics.

The interview link up there, he claims it was Shaffer making stuff up to give him a black eye, and quote " you can ask Dave Abel about that....."

Song sounds pretty good but i'm hoping for more variance in other songs.

I really like the song. Is he a young believer, or is he still unsaved and just thinks Revelation makes a good album subject?

I’ll definitely check this out when it comes out.

I think I remember him doing a song or two, maybe with the same band name, back in the Myspace days.

I love his tenure in Iced Earth and the "Night of the Stormrider" album.  It's great to see him living as a Christian and supporting the Christian metal movement.
