Christian rock band with great cover of Larry Norman's "Why Don't You Look Into Jesus?"
Excellent Effort - Definitely A Classic

"I recall around 1990 Holy Soldier being hyped as the next Led Zeppelin of the Christian industry. That was ridiculous and shows how sad much of that industry was then. Fortunately it has improved tremendously. Even so, there were/are some diamonds to be found and Holy Soldier is definitely one of them. Their first 2 cd's were in the heavy metal genre. Remind me of Great White ballads (which I love), and otherwise just excellent, original heavy metal of the 90's. Yes they had the hair, who cares? Anyone with some depth of character doesn't need to follow trends and recognizes great music is great music whether mass society agrees or not. This cd- Promise Man is a big departure. New vocalist with much lower vocal sound. Accuse them of trying to go grunge, but again, think and listen for yourself and forget the masses. This is outstanding music. They made a great transition of styles. It's almost like 2 different bands but both are really exceptional. Good lyrical messages, excellent songs, vocals and guitar playing. Great cd. I've had it for several years and I still play it regularly. Wish they'd put more cd's out."
Last Studio Album and Amazing

"Holy Soldier fell victim to the tragedy that was the decline of interest in bands deemed 'Hair Metal'. Holy Soldier put out 3 studio albums with each getting better and better. This album won a Dove Award for the best rock album but despite this turned out to be their last studio album. All of the tracks on this album are strong musically and lyrically. Highlights include:
Why Don't You Look Into Jesus?
Love Conquers All
Overall this is a wonderful album that didn't get it's true opportunity to shine. Holy Soldier - you're missed..."
