When a band bothers to tell the world that they are Christians, there is always a lot of discussions following the announcement. Why they do need to mention their religious beliefs does not always make sense to me. At the same time, the fact of a band being Christian, and their Christianity encapsulating the concept of the band is obviously as valid as any other, isn't it?
A Hill To Die Upon plays extreme metal, and Infinite titanic Immortal, the band's first full length, contains lyrics that reflect this Christianity, though through a darkness not uncommon to metal lyrics. Thus the band creates a lyrical atmosphere of choice to make their way into extreme metal.
The music is unfortunately too little variated for my taste, which is a pity, given the fact that the band's performance is absolutely respectable. The sound is rich, but the originality often literally blasts away.
The band is already booked for a gig series and I believe their show can be great, so check'em out!
