Love Ascend the Hill. Interesting seeing them getting some face time here on AP.net though. I don't think the album is up for download at the time of this post, though it will be available free sometime today. Really excited to give this a spin.

These guys should be huge.

I'm personally not a fan of the ministry, but the sounds they create are unparalleled.

One of my favourite bands. I am absolutely loving this new release. Seems like a healthy marriage of the two previous albums. Excellent music. Thanks for the stream!

That's cool that you can enjoy the music despite not being a fan of the ministry. So many people would reject a band for that reason!

Regardless of your beliefs, check this band out for how talented they are. Christian or not, these dudes have incredible music skills. Really reminiscent of Come Now Sleep era ACB!

I'm Jewish and I love this band. The musical talent is unparalleled. Maybe a tip to listeners who are turned off by the lyrics: instead of automatically coming to the conclusion they are singing about loving God/Jesus, imagine they are singing about a love for a person. Or rather, if they are singing about the grace of God, imagine they are singing about the beauty of the universe. I'm not entirely sure if that helps but it's something that keeps me listening.

The music sounds REALLY great and i like the singers voice but the lyrics is to much sometimes. I like christian lyrics overall, there is often a great message and many cool metaphors. But these lyrics isnt the best i´ve heard, Every song is like "Jesus, i love you", "God, in heaven" etc etc.
which song is Dustin on?

Lyrics are a little much for my tastes, but the music is good.
