Independent Christian metal band, Mouth of the South has put out yet another impressive album with Transparency. The record debuted at #10 on the iTunes Metal Charts, and is comprised of uplifting lyrics, heavy riffs, and passionate delivery. Nearly every song consists of powerful and emotional vocals, melodic guitars, and the drumming ranges from double bass to blast and punk beats. “Part Two” especially stands out for its drum solo, and inspirational lyrics, “let me be your light…I’m right by your side”. The album is more than just heavy, with surprisingly beautiful melodic moments in tracks like “Nothing But the Blood” and “Monologue”. If you love bands like Oh, Sleeper and Gideon, give this album a listen.
