“Hymns for the Apocalypse” Raises Money for Syria Refugees

Justin Marler and his band The Quick and the Dead (https://www.facebook.com/quickanddead) have launched an album of punk rock versions of gospel songs called “Hymns for the Apocalypse” to raise money for Syrian refugees. One of the top releases of 2015, the album brilliantly blends the 1990s East Bay punk sound with melodies and harmony. Marler’s journey is a fantastic tale involving the doom-metal band Sleep, seven years in an Eastern Orthodox monastery, and publishing a handmade magazine called “Death to the World: The Last True Rebellion,” which was distributed by Marler and other monks wearing monastic robes at punk shows. The story is detailed in the Austin Statesman newspaper (http://specials.mystatesman.com/austin-punk-monk/). Currently a member of St. Elias Orthodox in downtown Austin, Marler is sending all proceeds from the sale to the Hauran Connection, a project that benefits his parish’s sister diocese, Bosra-Hauran in Southern Syria, which has been devastated by civil war over the past four years. The parishes that remain open in that region have been transformed into relief stations, distributing food, medicine and supplies to anyone in the region regardless of religion. Please support this worthwhile cause.

Peter118 – Make It Or Break It

Peter118 album cover
There’s something familiar and easy about Peter118’s debut solo record. Make It or Break It is an enjoyable and quick listen. Think the Sex Pistols as fronted by Brian Wilson trying to sound like the Descendants.

I’ll be honest, the lyrics at times strike me as easy and cheesy. Especially on Break Em Out. The lyrics plus the delivery don’t work for me. But it seems genuine and the music fits the lyrics. It’s upbeat and positive. The lyrics are about coming to Christ and making a life change. It’s not prolific or life changing. But Make It or Break It is fun and sometimes you just need some enjoyable music in the background. 4 out of 5 Stars.
