The great thing about metal is that it's so diverse. There are so many different styles and points of view that there is something for everyone. Extreme metal gets pigeonholed as coming from a place of darkness and evil, but With Blood Comes Cleansing turns that stereotype on its ear.

On their debut album they combine death metal and hardcore that is extreme and brutal, but their lyrics are written from a Christian perspective. The songs have both grinding guitars and metalcore breakdowns. The vocals range from shoutalong choruses to hardcore yells to death metal growls. There are some interesting guitar riffs and the vocals are pretty diverse, but they overdo the breakdowns a bit. For those who think all Christian metal sounds like Stryper, give this Alabama band a listen and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
