This is the culmination of three years of community for a group of students meeting in St Mark's Church in Dublin. Signed to California's Dream Worship label and building on the success of an earlier EP "Fire By Night", Chapel Band have released a set of songs brimming with passion and exuberance and full of engaging electronic pop worship songs. This is congregational worship at its best and although some would say it's a bit too influenced by Hillsongs or Jesus Culture, for me the music and ministry is just as impactful. Three of the popular 2015 EP songs are included here, "Run", "Fire By Night" and "Here I Am Now" and these are supplemented by some quality offerings such as the up-tempo "One & Only" and perfectly crafted "Break Through" with beautiful lead vocals. The hypnotic melody of "All In" deserves wide exposure and a live and studio version is included for good measure. This is an album destined to impact the city they serve and well beyond.
