Music and more from a Christian perspective
Slow down, and have your change ready
The fifth and final album by Barnabas serves as a fitting end to the bands career. Little Foxes proved that the band didn't just get lucky with two good albums (like so many other metal bands did). Retroactive Records concludes the epic re-issue series in style.
One need not know the language, nor the Scripture they're singing, to feel overwhelmed by it. Thankfully, in this age of the Internet, it needn't remain unheard by saints-and-ain'ts seeking a near divine musical experience.
The fourth album by the Barnabas saw the band reaching the pinnacle of their metal evolution. Retroactive Records continues the re-issue train with Feel the Fire, showcasing a band that had finally gelled together and perfected the sonic direction they were shooting for.
After not gaining much momentum from a major label debut, many wondered where Guardian would go from there. The band answered - loudly - with Fire and Love - an album that proved they were just getting warmed up with their previous album. To this day, scores of fans still name this as one of their favorite albums by Guardian.
