The Beatles once sang, “It was twenty years ago today / Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play.” In 1993, the trailblazing metal missionaries, Bloodgood, who taught and inspired many in the Christian metal realm how to play passionate music of both substance and power, took a hiatus to raise their families. But twenty years later in 2013, the band emerged unexpectedly to release their sixth studio album, Dangerously Close. You might think after so long a break, the band was ready to smooth out the metal onslaught and lean toward the mellow side of things. But those notions were soon detonated with the first opening sledgehammer riffs of “Lamb of God.” Throughout twelve tracks, the passion and potent musicianship of this iconic band bleed through with a band that rocks hard with pulsating fury and intelligently written lyrics of faith that convict and inspire. Vocalist Les Carlsen has lost none of his vocal pyrotechnics, as the band, which includes Stryper’s Oz Fox, pounds out anthems for a modern world. Les is joined by the twin guitar assault of Fox and Paul Jackson, together with the tight rhythm section of Michael Bloodgood and Kevin Whisler proving this band can still set the world on fire.
Girder Records is proud to offer this modern classic in a Limited Edition CD, with new artwork that matches the vinyl version, and featuring the bonus track, “The Word,” a Beatles cover, previously only available on the version released on the Swedish label Doolittle Group. Don’t hesitate to snatch up this gem before you find yourself missing out on one of the band’s finest musical achievements.
