Review

Skillet has with their now eight albums become one of the biggest bands on the Christian rock scene. However, it took five albums to get the big breakthrough and this with the album Collide. After that, we now have received three strong albums where the band moved away from their industrial roots to a much more commercial and accessible style.
This new album, Rise is no exception and offers once again magnificent rock with beautiful arrangements, packed in an arena format. It does not take many seconds to recognize them in the opening and title track, which I think is a strength of the band. Was a little afraid that the band would be a bit too predictable on this new album after the two very nice albums Comatose and Awake. But the band has written a very good collection of tracks where there is six or seven clear single track. Personal I like when the band gets a little heavier as in "Not Gonna Die", "Circus For A Pshycho" and "Madness In Me", but also the softer "American Noise" is worth mentioning.
Overall a very stable release that I’m pretty sure that most fans will receive in a positive way!

Did you know that?

Pearl Jam´s first name was "Mookie Blaylock" after the All-Star basketball player, but the name was changed to "Pearl Jam" due to trademark concerns. Vocalist Eddie Vedder claimed in an early interview that the name was a reference to his great-grandmother Pearl. In 2006 guitarist Mike McCready said that bass player Jeff Ament came up with "Pearl" and that "Jam" was added after seeing Neil Young live.
