"I can't wait for everyone to hear these songs," shares Camp about the new album. "After all these years, it's amazing how the well to draw from never runs dry, when we rely on Him. The Lord continues to give deeper and deeper songs that speak to different seasons of life. With this new album, we're doing some things we've never done before. I'm releasing five songs with five different music videos for each song, before the album even comes out. And I'm definitely ready to play these songs live. On 'The Answer Tour' we'll be playing new songs of course but also bringing back some very early ones. It's a very exciting season."
CRUSH is an album of 10 80s influenced heavy metal songs that glorify Jesus as Lord and encourage listeners in their faith. If you are a Christian who enjoys the sounds of 80s metal music you will totally dig this album by Pastor Brad!
Some people think of ApologetiX as little more than a cover band, using parodies as an excuse to play “the devil’s music.” Well, you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge our “covers” by the Book.
Jesus said, “Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment” (John 7:24) and “Each tree is recognized by its own fruit” (Luke 6:44).
We have almost a quarter-century of fruit by which to judge this ministry – countless cases of God using our parodies to “reach the lost and teach the rest.” Souls saved. Hearts encouraged. Minds enlightened.
The same God who created mankind also created music. People become sinful by what they say and do. Songs become sinful by what they say (lyrics) and do (the feelings/actions they stir up), too.
But God can redeem people and make them new creations (2 Corinthians 5:17), and He can do the same with songs.
When God changes a person, they may look the same, but their heart is changed. When God changes a song, it may sound the same, but its heart is changed, too.
You should be able tell a Christian by his words and actions. The same criteria should apply to Christian music. To paraphrase Forrest Gump, “Music is as music does” -- so open this box of chocolates and see what you get.
