Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) August 26, 2009 -- Hostyle Gospel to Release Sophomore Album this Winter âImmortal Combatâ will surprise longtime fans and appeal to new listeners
Diving further into the battle of spiritual warfare, Hostyle Gospelâs sophomore release, âImmortal Combatâ is the righteous weapon this generation so desperately needs. With vivid transparency, this album confronts struggles, sin and Satan, providing ammunition for the fight of faith.
With a more varied approach than previous compilations, âImmortal Combatâ is flavored with techno, rap and a little R&B. âWe continually develop with each song we write â reaching for a fresh sound every time,â group member, Big Job (Fontaine Pizza), explains. âWe want our music to appeal not only to people in America but across the globe.â
Lyrics that resonate with the challenges of faith are mixed with more personal glimpses into the lives of the group members, âThe songs are stories - of fathers, parents who took a bad road, adults who are struggling with their family life, âsays member King Soloman (Demetrius Morton) âThis album speaks more on the spiritual perspective of real-life, everyday situations and having the confidence to live in and under the power and authority of Christ.â The group hopes that by relating to daily temptations, people will turn to Christ as a source of strength through trying situations.
âWe are incorporating more of a praise and worship experience with the creation as well as the performance of the new album. We really just want people to think about God when they hear our music, just as everyone in the group has grown spiritually and musically from this project.â Proverb (Ray Glass), describes, âThis is the first opportunity for some of our group members to contribute so much to the album - It is a chance for everyone to use their talents.â The talent contribution extends as far as Camp Liberation and Redemption, leaders in the Christian Hip Hop world.
The album is one of many new developments the group has made over the last few months. In March, the group hosted their first youth conference, âOrder Your Steps,â a free event open that welcomed youth to come find an identity in Christ. The Hostyle Gospel website recently received a massive revision, offering more information on the groupâs purpose and how to get involved with the ministry. âThe ministry is growing,â says Pizza, âChristian hip hop is something not a lot of people are doing, but a lot of people are benefiting from. We want, as our ministry grows, to be able to reach out and impact more and more lives for Christ.â For more information about the music and ministry of Hostyle Gospel, visit http://www.hostylegospel.com.
