Here are we again. I had to do this in response to the useless, inobjective review our resident panderer gave this band, Angelic Power Force Redemption, which is another example in the long line of crappy bands that get a ridiculous amount of praise from the diaper-wearing idiot reviewers of this hypocrite site who think they're all so goddamn Gallant in giving out huge scores to rubbish modern bands.

They think they're so grim, just because they sing about Hare Krishnas. Like anyone will ever go as far as Vemon did in the 80's lyrically with their serious and thought provoking music? Doubtful, and I haven't seen anyone do it yet. Truly avant-garde means pushing the boundaries of old-school bands that don't ever change their sound. Modern bands don't seem to be able to understand this simple concept. The only redeeming quality of this band is that I get to bash it in this review.

And why do they need 700 hundred members to make this music? I remember back in the day when it only took three and a half members to be in a band: one to do the growling, one to do the singing, two to play guitars, one to drum and another to wander around the stage painting corpse paint on all the hot over 40-something women whilst playing the cowbell. That was true metal, not this drivel. It's nothing more than a carbon copy of Deathspell Omega or Sonic Syndicate + (insert any band using guitars or drums or humans): droning guitars that drone on dronelessly. Drone: it's what all the teenagers want these days with their tank tops and their Playstation 360's and their MiniDisc players.

This CD was a monotonous journey into boredom which would eventually spawn menstrual cramps. The only thing I can fathom about the complete blind-devotion of the fans is that they don't know any better, or because they haven't listened to me. Angelic Power Force Redemption left this listener wanting a hell of a lot less musically and lot more of the exact same thing that the bands I really like did years ago. Giving this offering anything over a 3 is being egregious.

I actually really enjoy bands like Blut Aus Nord, Kittie, Merzbow, Wintersun and A Dream of Poe because they all know how to make music without being pretentious. Not this band with their poly-bi-carbonate rhythms, triplet subdivisions that contrast with duple subdivisions and progressing anti-choruses. Not to mention the chord harmonics that clash with quasi glissandos! I mean come on guys, what on Earth were you thinking?!

I don't hate Angelic Power Force Redemption, I only hate young people and people that don't share my opinions, I just think their music is severely lacking on just about every front. At least it's not The Black Eyed Peas and the guitars are distorted. Of course, you obviously won't listen to one fucking word I wrote, which is typical. All you fanboys and girls are quite clearly enslaved to this kind of music.

Performance: 3
Songwriting: 2
Originality: 2
Production: 3

Put away any thoughts you had about Christian Metal and get ready to have the Hell beaten out of you...literally!

Hailing from the Megachurch, Tribuo Nos Vestri Viaticus, comes Angelic Power Force Redemption. A 247 member (a use the term member and not person as you will see later why) financially backed by their congregation of 140,000 who play some of the most amazing music ever recorded. Not wanting ignore or ostracize any genre of Metal, APFR play what could be best described as Epic Progressive Symphonic Thrash. A feat I can assure is not easy to accomplish.

Why only 3 for production?

I thought Genesis was a very polished rendition of the start of the world.

Much like the beginnings of the world it was very noisy and messy with lots of crap going on.

I see what you did there... and I like it.


and Daaaaaaaaaaaaang... I know it's a joke but seeing Kittie and wintersun besides names as Blut Aus Nord and Merzbow is just plain fucking disturbing.

Please, it's not that bad. Overrated sure, but it's hardly the pile of bear shit you make it out to be. I quite liked it, it's far more creative then you give it credit for. Perhaps the begining of post neo progressive blackened power thrash metal? Only time will tell.

You don't know shit man...I've been a fan of this band since the church days (they played in church not in a garage like all the wannabe cool kids).
