Cincinnati, Ohio, based Spirit and the Bride are back with their second full-length album “Dry Bones” If you read this and you come to the end of the review, you will notice that it came out in May 2017…. I know, I am a bit, okay much too late with the review, sorry about that.
What about the lyrics? Well I think they said it very well in their own words in the reviewer notes:
“Each song deals with spiritual matters, from being in the Bloodline of Christ (“Bloodline”), to praying for the heavens to open (“Open Heavens”), to the epiphany of the thief on the cross. The album has a spiritual progression throughout — one of hope, redemption and love. God provided a way for us to rid ourselves of self-hatred, and this album explores all aspects of the journey.”
Guest vocals are also present on the album by Nick Detty from Wolves at the Gate (song Dead Men), and Zack McKim from Take it Back! / Paperweight (song Jesus Wept).
