Fraction - Blood Moon - 70's Christian Rock {Doors Vibe}

Post by BobtheBerean on Wed Jul 08, 2015 7:53 am

I just read an article on the {I guess they could be called pioneers} of Christian rock - Fraction...

Their cd "Moon Shot" .

The article described the vibes as Doors and Iron Butterfly...Dude,
they were do right on the Doors vibe {especially vocally}..

Lyrically, very Christian....

Does anybody know much about this band?

The cd Blood Moon is well worth a digital down {about $8.00 on
Amazon}...The cd is available too..I have played it constantly
since downloading it..


Check one of the first Christian rock bands..

Oh yeah! I had no idea they were Christian the first time I heard them, I was just taking psychedelic rock recommendations. Not one of my favorite albums as the singer can be over-bearing and the music a bit meandering. Not sure you could accurately call them Christian (edit: realized I'm speculating because all we have to go by is the lyrics which are pretty legit minus a mention of "mother earth" and some strange images etc.) . It's definitely good music. This is the best song on there:

Pioneers? I had a thread up of 1960s Christian rock bands up a while back. 
Not being a big fan of 70s rock this was meh for me. Probably good to those more into the style though.

Yeah, I think I found The Pilgrims through that! Good stuff. There was some good stuff in the '60s no doubt, even before the typically accepted Larry Norman debut of '69. I posted this one a while back, and I still think this is the most original/unique Christian rock song of the '60s. Barque pop/proto-prog!

lol   UMMM Dude I am WAY into 60's Psychedelic music and The Electric Prunes are AWESOME but they ARE NOT a Christian band.  They do have some religious under tones in one cd and some jewish undertones in another but they are NOT a Christian band at all.

You're right. I'm just the kind of guy who will say "After Forever" is the first Christian metal song even if the band members aren't. I read it was the doing of the Prunes' producer who wanted to throw in some Christian and Jewish lyrics in there, so who knows, maybe the producer was a Christian?

Wow, never heard of them this is cool. Right up my alley. I enjoyed the Pilgrims thread a while back too and I remember they had a spin-off band that sounded like Hendrix but can't remember the name. 

Check this one out from 1964:
