The hubs and I had the great pleasure of hosting
a small listening party this past Friday evening.
We've been big fans of Gungor
since the release of their "debut" album, Beautiful Things,
in early 2010.
This past week Gungor released their next album entitled
for which we hosted this listening party.
As I sat in my candlelit living room with close friends,
sipping tea and listening closely to this new album from a band that I loved,
my mind was blown like its never been blown before.
Lyrically, this album is powerful, romantic, narrative and moving.
Musically, it's hands down brilliant.
It is intricate, mixing a variety of different rhythms and tempos
and using a plethora of different instruments.
All the while it weaves a beautiful story
and leads you place of unashamed worship.
This album is wildly different from Beautiful Things,
but it leaves nothing to be desired.
I highly recommend that you purchase this album on iTunes,
and give it a good listen, all the way once through,
with candles and tea, if possible.
And just to vouch for the awesomeness
here's a video of the amazing song
When Death Dies:
