"Spear of destiny have been going since 1983 and have released a number of excellent albums .their best seller probably being Outlands in the early 90's, which included the hit single Never take me alive. This latest release sees main man Kirk Brandon writing his best work for some time .The sound is made up of heavy guitar and sometimes operatic vocals.In particular, the track 'walk a mile in my shoes' draws upon Brandons personal experiences of the big bad world.The band have a fanatical following in Britain and now its time for the U.S. to catch on."

"I bought "Religion" because I went to see a Spear of Destiny show recently, bought their new album "Volunteers" found it amazing, and then bought "Religion".It would be hard for "Religion" to be as good as "Volunteers". It isn't, but it's still an excellent album. I can now see that it is a prelyude to Volunteers - it signals Kirk Brandon's return to form after the illnesses, the lack of success of previous albums and the bitterness of the court case with Boy George.There are three peaks to "Religion". It opens with "Riny Day" - a rock-hard riff that will blow your socks off. In the middle of the album there's "Walk a Mile in My Shoes" - what a song! A Oasis-type rock shuffle beat provides the driving force for a strong melody, the lyric is deeply personal to Brandon (it alludes to the result of his court case with Boy George) and his voice sears through the speakers. The third high-point is the final song "Total Kontrol" - a reference to the Clash's "Complete Control" and "Remote Control"? This is r-o-c-k, but rock that knows about dance.I've been converted, and I need to spread the word.Buy "Religion" and buy "Volunteers", and spread the faith!"
