Never understood people writing off his new stuff because its too Christian. Has anyone even read any of his Thrice lyrics?
"And there's no greater love, than that one shed his blood for his friends"
Kensrue always did with Thrice what every good lyricist does, and blurred the line between his exact intention and universality in order to widen his audience. Look closely at almost the entirety of Vheissu alone, and you'll find it's weaved around adaptions of verses and scriptures. Even if you're not a person of faith, don't you still find it fascinating that a man can draw enough concept and soul from 2000 year old writings to head a masterpiece like this album is?

Like Moths To Flame: blatant retelling of Peter's denial of Christ.
