by Four Star Revival
(Aztek Records)

With the release of their debut album, 'Knights Of The Revival', Ohio based Christian rockers, Four Star Revival  have successfully delivered a hard-rocking stalwart that provides a plethora of riffage, soaring vocals, and a pounding rhythm section. The band is comprised of Jack Emrick - vocals, (Life After Death - which featured members of Armored Saint), Benny Bodine - guitar, (WarMinister), Ed Girard - bass, (House of Jason) and Paul Strausburg - drums (World Gone Wrong). 'Knights of the Revival' is packed with memorable moments, with all songs standing on their own as seperate moments, united into one enjoyable listen. This is done with solid riffing, slick applications of hooks and harmonies, and vocals with range and gusto, which can actually be understood. Full of anointed lyrics and some of the meatiest guitar licks ever laid down courtesy of, guitarist Benny Bodine along with the rhythm section of Ed Girard and Paul Strausburg that is tight as a glove and rock solid vocals by Jack Emrick. If you wanna bang your head to some well crafted rock songs, this is the album for you. "Red", "Faith", "Perfect Life"  and "Save Me", are able to expand on this formula. The musicianship, writing, and vocals are extremely tight. Four Star Revival is committed to the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, a message that rings loudly throughout their new album. The cross stands at the center of the lyrical content - an emphasis that is missing in a lot of Christian music these days. 'Knights Of The Revival' is a solid debut release that should please fans of the Hard-rock /Heavy Metal genre and welcome new listeners to a very good band. - Highly Recommended
