Iowa´s pride of the christian metalcore scene is without doubt For Today, the band formed in 2005 and has released 4 albums including their new album "Immortal" which is their first on Razor and Tie Records. They sound really hungry and inspired on these new songs, just listen to the powerful "Stand defiant" or the massive "Foundation" that features a huge chorus. My favorite is the new single "Fearless" where I love the lyrics "We are the fearless ones, we will not be afraid". It´s cool to see the guest performances from Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D) on "The only name", Tommy Green (Sleeping Giant) on "Under god" and Jake Luhrs (August Burns Red) on "Set apart". My tip for the next single is "The only name" where the chorus will stick to your head like superglue. Even though metalcore isn´t a genre I usually listen to, I do think this album has it´s moments so thumbs up!
