Their publicity blurb claims that Pillar are "an explosive alternative to mainstream acts such as Linkin Park and Incubus" and I wouldn't argue. These Dove Award winners make a joyful noise expertly weaving mainstream pop rock (the "Fireproof" radio single) with harder rap fare. Many of the lyrics here derive from Daniel 3 and with Pillar's call to radical commitment to Christ the melodic hooks, rapid syllable rapping and high octane drumming make this one of the best examples of commercial hard music you are likely to hear this year. My favourite track at the moment is "Echelon", a call to spiritual warfare. On it the band admit "We're on the Enemy's hit list." In the final analysis, that's the best place to be.
