You don’t often hear the terms “Crunk” and “Christian” in
the same paragraph let alone the same band description, but Family Force
5 has accomplished the rare feat of combining Rap, Punk, Hardcore,
Funk, Metal and Dance beats with a Christian perspective.
There is something to be said for a Metal band that
can incorporate its religious beliefs into the music without coming off
as cliché or pompous. San Diego Metalcore
outfit As I Lay Dying has been one of those bands.
Spirit Song Festival is once again taking over Kings
Island. The three-day features two dozen of Christian music’s most
famous artists. The lineup includes the likes of Switchfoot, TobyMac,
Owl City, Third Day and NEEDTOBREATHE, as well as Cincinnati’s very own
Mosteller. With such a mixed and well-known lineup, Spirit Song is might well draw its largest audience yet.
