Sound of the Saints, released May 4, 2015, is the tenth studio album from Audio Adrenaline. Audio Adrenaline is a band that has been around since the mid 1980s. However, they are still producing music that is relevant and modern, as shown by Sound of the Saints. Although I had not been a fan of their previous works, I really like this album, and I think that it will definitely help revive their following. Sound of the Saints brings new life to this well established band.
For Audio Adrenaline’s longstanding fans, Sound of the Saints will not disappoint. There are definitely some harder rock songs on the track list, such as “Move,” “Out of the Fire,” and “Saved My Soul.” Even though these songs have a hard hitting rock sound, they convey a positive message in their lyrics. I found all of these tracks to be enthusiastic and refreshing. “Move,” “Out of the Fire” and “Saved My Soul” feature intense rock melodies with steady, uplifting, and thought-provoking lyrics.
“Move,” track no. 1, and “World Changers,” track no. 10, emphasize the main goal of the band. “From the beginning, Audio Adrenaline’s purpose has been to encourage people to move out of their spiritual comfort zones,” says main singer Adam Agee. Through powerful sounds and convicting, yet encouraging lyrics, I expect these songs will enable Audio Adrenaline to reach that goal.
Sound of the Saints also includes some Praise and Worship style songs. I see these songs as a connection to Audio Adrenaline’s roots, since they were the creators of the Praise and Worship hit, “Big House.” Songs on Sound of the Saints in this category are “Sound of the Saints,” “Spirit Burn,” and “Miracles.” I know that Praise and Worship music is a very crowded genre, but Audio Adrenaline brings new style and meaning to this genre. These tracks are more than just the typical “seven words eleven times” praise song: they have deep, meaningful lyrics, and unusual themes. These songs are not confined to the typical Praise and Worship subjects, they instead branch out and speak about other aspects of the Christian life.
I was extremely pleased with Sound of the Saints. The musical skill shown here really sets this record off as being one to notice in Audio Adrenaline’s history. The songs have meaningful lyrics and pleasing sounds. I think that this album would be a good introduction to Christian music for someone, because it is pretty middle-of-the-road as far as sound goes. In addition, Sound of the Saints really represents the Christian Rock and Praise and Worship genres well. Audio Adrenaline is definitely drawing from their roots to revitalize their music, while simultaneously creating a new and energizing sound.
