Here's Christian thrashers God Forsaken's sixth full-length album, titled The Fight Goes On, continuing the band's earthly crusade as the devoted messengers of Jesus Christ. Leaving the band's all-things-Christian-themed lyrics aside, Grave Forsaken keep on surprising me how well and convincingly they do their combination of Thrash and Heavy Metal.
Compared to their previous studio outing, Reap What You Sow, released in 2012, I would say this album is a tad better effort both content and production-wise. The guys are still able to churn out nicely rollin', hooky Thrash/Heavy Metal that has many good ideas and some determination to make things truly happen for them. Some may ignore them knowing they sing about the love of God and stuff, but they shouldn't be so narrow-minded, as Grave Forsaken do know how to deliver their goods with style. Overall, the songs on The Fight Goes On are a bit more aggressive, tighter and catchier compared to their previous album. Grave Forsaken have also dug up their more Rock 'n' Roll side on this opus, just like the song "Strike the Oppressor" proves. I am sure this song gets lots of play live by the band too, putting people into the party mood. On the other side, when they get more sort of "serious", they have "God Is with Us (Psalm 46)" in their sleeve, which a mid-paced, heavy bulldozer type of a song, reeking of all kinds of pompous and epic elements whereas album closer "Glimpse of Armageddon" pushes the pedal to the metal again, showcasing Grave Forsaken's love and passion for thrashing their hearts out.
The Fight Goes On is a pretty solid album from these Christian Aussie thrashers, so give it a chance. I did, and didn't regret it.
