Casting Crowns Reader Comment:
I was reading last night in 2 chronicles 7:14 where the Lord says “If My people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek me, and repent from their wicked ways; then i will hear them, from the heavens and i will forgive their sins and will heal their land” this is the root of repentance the heart start of our beginning with God, what ever it is you and God know, just throw yourself at the feet of God and let him work, and you with whats left of your strength and watch.
Everyone loves a good music video and it is time to get one up now! Here is Radiator by FF5 also known as Family Force 5.
Family Force 5 uses elements of rap, post-hardcore, alternative rock, punk rock, and club oriented crunk, and sometimes a nu metal sound.
The band often cites their own style as crunk rock. Most songs contain heavy use of synthesizers and simple power chord riffs. Some songs make references to break dancing, use Crunk style loops, or a club atmosphere. The song “Supersonic” spells out the word “crunk” in the lyrics. Many lyrics also make reference to the fact that the band is from Atlanta. They have been labeled as having a similar sound to Marilyn Manson. The band has tried to distance themselves from this image, as they do not feel it is true to what they stand for.
When asked about their “Love Addict” video and its relation to their Christian image, Solomon Olds states “They want Sandi Patty all over again. They want Amy Grant. And most times, it’s people that don’t understand new art, new videos… We want to make music that is for God, but at the same time, we want to make music that people enjoy and that they’re not turned off by.”
