Album Review: Welcome to the Masquerade

NOTE: An edited version of the same review I have posted via Facebook Notes.

Thousand Foot Krutch
Welcome To The Masquerade (Tooth & Nail)

Thanks for my accidentally stumbling upon TFK's "Falls Apart" video, I got to know this Canadian Christian rock band fronted by FM Static's Trevor McNevan. And thanks to my brother who got a copy of this album, I got to listen to more of their works.

At first, I didn't like it much. I don't know; maybe I was too preoccupied with heavy metal back then. But when I listened to it again and again, I started to appreciate it.

Hell (Part 1)

NOTE: An old post of mine I found in my Facebook notes... This is supposed to be the first story of a collection of short stories about hell that I've planned of doing last year.

The Legend of Cheating*

NOTE: The preceding story is mostly based on my original manuscript. I simply cannot remember how I wrote its final form, which I submitted to my dear Journalism teacher. When the whole matter comes back to me again, all these would finally be settled.

The Fallen Adam (Saved by the Blood)*

It’s about the fall and salvation of man, as illustrated in Genesis 3. At first, “the fallen Adam” - representation of the whole human race - finds himself unworthy before his Creator due to his sins against Him (Romans 3:23). His punishment is, of course, death (Romans 6:23), but then, God sent His Son, Jesus, to die in his place (Romans 5:8, Isaiah 53:5), so he claims, “what can the enemy do to me now if I’m saved by [Jesus’] blood?"

Is is nothing to you, all you who pass by? Look and see if there is any sorrow like my sorrow which was brought upon me...
