In this one trip thousands came forward seeking a deeper knowledge of Jesus Christ. This band is bold and willing to push past any barrier that comes against the goal at hand. They have seen tremendous acts of God’s favor and blessing upon what they set out to accomplish for his glory, making history by being the first Christian artist to publically worship in Vietnam. As the title of the record indicates, complete abandonment to God is the underlying theme. Along with some excellent instrumentation, the band offers some of the most poignant and thought-provoking worship songs recorded within the last few years.
With songs like “Beautiful” and “35 Weeks,” this is a band that is destined to make an impact on listeners everywhere. Paul Durham |www.ccmmagazine.com Re:Zound continues to break down musical barriers between rock and worship. With their new release Abandoned to You, their heart for worship is more apparent than ever as they continue their mission to spread the message of Christ’s unfailing love internationally. www.familychristian.com While I do think that it's hard to enter the CCM music industry and gain major acceptance these days, Re:Zound's fresh style will likely get them noticed when they do come on the radio. What remains to be seen is whether or not this unique sound will be embraced by those who enjoy bands like Mercy Me or Casting Crowns. Kevin Hoskins |www.jesusfreakhideout.com The reason that I picked Re:Zound to be featured [week of 04.20.08] on the show was simple. My show features the very best artists that I can find from all genres of music so a bands sound and image is number one and two on who I choose.
Once that is established then I go for a good story that the artist may have so when I found out that Re:Zound was the first Christian band to play at a public venue in Vietnam I new the combination was a perfect fit. I hope this answers your question. Brent Bradley | www.podshowradio.com Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
