We're bringing an album stream from Ascend The Hill, for their second full length album, O Ransomed Son; you can stream the album on their profile here. The band has been backed by bands such as Impending Doom, and August Burns Red; Thrice vocalist/guitarist Dustin Kensrue is also a fan, and also provides guest vocals on this album. You can download the album tomorrow for free here, and also purchase a physical copy of the album here. You can follow the band on Twitter, and on Facebook.
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.
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?
