As its title suggests, this mammoth package tour features ten of today's loudest Christian bands. This ain't the wimpy "praise music" you might remember from Christian youth summer camp: Maylene & the Sons of Disaster throw Southern rock into the mix, while Blessed By a Broken Heart blends together shred-tastic metal and '80s electro-cheese. Lyrically, most of these bands substitute positive-thinking manifestos for overt preaching, but some aren't even all that positive. On his band's new album, A Plea For Purging vocalist Andy Atkins roars, "If I were God, we'd all be dead." Most of this stuff offers enough crushing guitar riffs and anthemic choruses to please even atheistic listeners – at least on disc. Live, you're likely to get some decidedly spiritual between-song banter. Caveat emptor.
