Revival [edit]
by Soulfire Revolution | Genre: Praise & Worship | Release Date: August 13, 2013
 

As part of MCI church in Bogota, Colombia, SOULFIRE REVOLUTION is part of a ministry founded on loving God and following in His steps. Following Him and living in that calling is at the core of what SOULFIRE REVOLUTION is all about. “Our hearts are for God and to follow the Great Commission. We’re all leaders in our church and we are constantly leading new people to follow Jesus. It’s much more than music it’s about guiding others to truly have an encounter with God,” shares SOULFIRE REVOLUTION’s Lorena Castellanos.

The debut single “REVIVAL” features Jesus Culture’s Kim Walker-Smith and is the first song from the upcoming album. Also featured on the album are separate guest appearances from TobyMac and Martin Smith (Delirious?).

12 Songs. 3 Features. 1 Great God. | Posted August 28, 2013

Hailing from Bogota, Colombia, Soulfire Revolution is a modern worship band whose passion is to inspire many to know Jesus in an intimate way. Revival is the debut album from this powerful group, and based upon this album, they are fulfilling their mission.

The album begins with a solid guitar line very reminiscent of Jesus Culture. The title track "Revival" is led by Soulfire Revolution member Lorena Castellanos and features Kim Walker-Smith. It is a powerful song calling us to a deeper place of worship and a prayer for revival across the church. It's also a great place to start this worship journey. The vocals between Lorena Castellanos and Kim Walker-Smith flow seamlessly. Generally, I am not a fan of female lead, uptempo worship, but this song is on point.

Next up is "Hallowed Be Your Name." This song could easily be misidentified as a Hillsong track. The heavy synth and processed vocals are very reminiscent of Zion. This is to be somewhat expected in today's modern worship, as United has set the bar for worship bands. The song is excellent and doesn't make me think they are copying anyone. Any worship song that can artistically blend in the most famous prayer in Christendom and not sound forced will engage the congregation to sing out whether they know the verses or not.

The bass line is infectious on "What An Awesome God." Solid bass and drums are the feature of this song musically. Speaking of drums, Soulfire Revolution has a female drummer named Paola Sanchez that makes them almost exactly like Skillet. Well not really, but it is a fact that had to mentioned because the drums on this album aren't lacking in any way, shape or form. The song simply speaks of all of the amazing attributes of the awesome God that we serve.

Based on recent twitter buzz, the next track "Spirit Break Out" may give "Oceans" from Hillsong United a run for its money for best worship song this year. The song is simple and just calls for the Spirit to break out and break down these walls. It is extremely melodic and definitely leads the listener to close their eyes and worship along. The treat to listeners comes in the second verse with TobyMac featured rapping a few bars. It really is a wonderful song and a wonderful prayer for the church.

"Glorious" continues the infectious groove of the album. The drums draw you in while the synth gives you a place to sit and rest. This is followed by the final feature on the album where Martin Smith lends his voice to "Count The Stars." This is a beautiful song. Period. The lyrics are poetic and the song is driven forward with a solid piano line.

Closing Thoughts:
The fact that there are three incredible features on this album should not be the reason you go out and buy this. If the three songs were not on the album, you would still have nine amazing worship songs that any worship leader should seriously consider adding to their Sunday setlist. My heart is blessed that a country more well known for coffee and cocaine is having a move of God that would produce such a powerful worship album. God is moving in this Earth. This is evidence.

Good music | Posted August 29, 2013
The new album, Revival, by Soulfire Revolution is a decent album. There are good songs and some not so good. I know there is a lot of hype surrounding this album because of where it comes from and what is happening there, but I, personally, have a hard time listening to music that all sounds the same.

Revival | Posted August 01, 2013
You really should buy the English version Revival of the album Aviva by Soulfire Revolution. These worshippers will make you praise with their songs. And you really need to listen to their music. Let's adore Him!
