I discovered Day of Fire from a WOW compilation. I really loved the song Cornerstone so I decided to check their other songs. I must say that I am very impressed. Overall, their music is a bit "harder" than what I would normally listen to, but I find myself listening to this CD almost every day. Cornerstone and Rain Song are my favorites.
Answering The Eternal Question Of "Where Is He Now?"

"After quitting the grunge-metal outfit Full Devil Jacket in 2001 to pursue Christianity, vocalist Josh Brown seemed to disappear off the face of the Earth. That is, until late 2004 when he re-emerged with his new group, Day Of Fire and their self-titled debut album. Fans of his previous work will mostly be happy. His voice sounds better than ever, and this new band, although not as hard-hitting, compliments him pretty well. It's more refined and more mainstream, but definitely a worthy listen.
Personally, I am not interested in this album for any religious reason (sorry), but because of Brown's voice. So, I really can't comment on his messages of faith. There are other reviewers that can do that better. However, his newfound spirituality definitely results in a more positive vibe in the music, which isn't such a bad thing. The first few songs, "Through The Fire" and "Detainer" are catchy, full-force hard-rockers that could pop-up as hits on any modern-rock station. "Cornerstone" and "Reap And Sow" sounds a lot like Full Devil Jacket material and will definitely please long time fans. "I Am The Door" is probably the only song on here I don't like. It just reeks of Def Leppard-esque arena rock a bit too much for my tastes.
Overall, Day Of Fire's debut goes off without a hitch. Not much to complain about here. If you like grunge, mainstream hard-rock, whatever you wanna call it, this will most likely please you. However, I feel it's a shame Full Devil Jacket had to call it a day. From what I understand, Brown's bandmates had no problem with his beliefs, but it's a moot point now. Brown seems to have found happiness and that means more good music, so more power to him. Day Of Fire are a worthy successor. It's definitely an album that will hook you right from the beginning."
