Hands – Give Me Rest

I’d almost like to say that the three piece band-Hands is like the post hardcore/metal version of The Glorious Unseen. In that almost every song on their new album (Give Me Rest) is a cry out to God. The album brings me back to the days of As Cities Burn, with screams and sounds that resembled their first album.(Son I Loved You At Your Darkest) Yet with Hands the screaming aspects are almost all their own, standing apart from most other Hardcore and Metal bands active in each respected genre.

The album is a steady flow of beautiful brutality and harmony. Give Me Rest starts off with a commanding drum pattern with scream vocals that seem like their coming from some distance place before getting up closer to the human ear. Hands is a band that is very much on their own plato. It would be a mistake not give this band a few moments of your time. They will take your heart on a Journey that very few bands will ever take it.

    Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means sativlaon, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.2 Peter 3:15-16Now, not to say that my brother (or maybe sister, I don’t know) who published this lengthy, but flawed, argument is headed to destruction; I just think that such a keen mind would be better used studying ways to reach the lost with the gospel of Christ than defending an irrelevant doctrine. Yes, the idea of the Rapture is not really all that important. If it were, we wouldn’t have to do so much theological gerrymandering to prove it (or disprove it, as it were). The point is, why are we arguing over a trivial doctrinal point instead of seeking ways to bring others to Christ? Perfect doctrine is not a prerequisite to eternal life (thankfully). The real key points are very clear in Scripture, and don’t lend to vast interpretation (like faith in Christ).
