Finally. A "worship team" that is actually a "band." I like SonicFlood and the other modern worship outifts, but they all sound like they are playing in church, and are not actual bands. I can't quite put my finger on it, but all of these outfits fall short of the "band" sound. Until I found The Rock and Roll Worship Circus. There is no doubt that they are a worship band, in the full meaning of both of those terms. Check them out, and let me know what you think.

You know the genre has been around a long time (and that I am getting old!) when Stryper is going on a reunion tour. They came close to my town, and I saw the ad noting that this is their "first tour in 12 years," with "all of the original members." I remember those heady days of Christian rock and metal, from Rez to Barnabas to White Cross. And of course it all started with Stryper, the grandfather of this form of music. And they are back -- boy, am I old!
