I haven’t found a band yet that has so creatively used scripture lyrics with cutting edge music and soundscapes that fit the theme of the text.
“We want to be able to sing the Word in a creative way,” Culver told NRT. “We want to make it real so it’s not just cramming scriptures into a musical lick, but really making it come alive.”
It’s made alive with distorted guitars dancing with neurotic synth pulses and intricate beats. It’s made with PA-like effects on vocals shouting the plagues of Egypt and mysterious breakdowns. The story quality of the song is made apparent with a lack of typical song structure.
“We tried not to do just verse-chorus-verse-verse-chorus-chorus-bridge-chorus-chorus-tag that 90 percent of songs do,” Culver said. “It doesn’t always call for that; it doesn’t always work.”
The Wheat and the Tares is an album full of Bible stories told creatively by instruments and programming, from Jonah to Moses and Joshua to the woman caught in adultery. Be refreshed as you experience the passion of these true stories!
