"The Darkest Pinnacle of Light" (Rundown; 2006)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Band names are a funny thing: sometimes they're good, sometimes they're bad. Sometimes they match the band and its style, sometimes they come out of left field. 

Then there's Honey For Christ.

I thought at first they might be a Christian band; however, when I went to their website, I gathered they are not. This is what the band says about themselves on their site: "This is Honey For Christ - 100% raw, unclean, uncut, hard and honest heavy fucking metal!" 

That's some large order to fill, but -- after listening to their release "The Darkest Pinnacle of Light," I can honestly say that this is one of the hardest and heaviest CDs by one of the most talented bands I have had the honor of reviewing this year. 

The only drawback I can find with this CD is that the entire release is only five songs with a total running time of just 26 minutes. A minor complaint because, after listening to that 26 minutes over and over again, I'm ready for more!

Honey For Christ's "The Darkest Pinnacle of Light" has everything: excellent songwriting, superb musicianship and kickass sound.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
