We Came As Romans: To Plant A Seed

Sound — 9
The way the Guitar is used with much distortion really is fantastic. I love how they are so much yet just enough. I also like the sharper uses for some songs, such as the intro in "Broken Statues" and the chorus of "An Ever-growing Wonder". I really think there has to be some relation to a "I'm not the type of person but I'm gonna do some good on this earth and look cool doing it". I am a huge fan of the hardcore with an addition of orchestral music so I can say nothing bad about that, just the way it forms perfectly.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are unusual. Unlike many screamo or hardcore metal bands this one delivers a positive message about many different accounts. An "Ever-growing Wonder", "To Plant A Seed", and "We Are the Reasons" especially. The only thing I would say for them to work on for there new upcoming album (out spring/summer 2011) is that the lyrics have there up and downs with the screamo to positive message mix. On the other hand I am so impressed with how the clean vocals just flow back and forth with the screamo vocals in every song, again very little disappointment here.

Overall Impression — 9
This is the bands first studio album and it is fantastic, all I have to say about the possibilities is that I expect amazing things from a new album coming out. Again, spring/summer 2011. Favorite songs would have to be "Searching, Seeking, Reaching, Always", "An Ever-growing Wonder", and "I Will Not Reap Destruction". I would 10 times out of 10 recommend this album to anyone, most likely a hard rocker but still, it would never hurt to mention them. I recently had a meltdown on my 160GB Ipod and my friend let me borrow his until I find out what happened to mine and "To Plant A Seed" was the first album I put on my friend's Ipod. I love this band.

    alright. so first, flyleaf???? dude if you're going to try and post in defense of christian metal, please a) choose a metal band, and b) choose a band. if you're going to look into good christian metal look into with blood comes cleansing, i built the cross, in the midst of lions, inhale exhale, impending doom, for today, or the great commission. some of the heaviest stuff out there today. jeez.
    They are not a christian metal band, i watched an interview on you tube and they said they are not.
    theyre not christian. they just have a very positive message in their music and there are a few christian dudes in their band, but they aren't in the christian genre
    and also, Eric Choi plays drums, not guitar. this UG review is very bad for being a "professional" review

    These guys aren't hardcore, they're metalcore. BIG DIFFERENCE.
