TOURNIQUET
WHERE MOTH AND RUST DESTROY
METAL BLADE

Tourniquet is a Christian rock band, but not the type like Creed (thankfully). Instead, this veteran metal troupe have carved its niche by spreading the word of the Lord with an iron fist, not a sparkly shirt and a Eddie Vedder-esque swagger. Nine tracks of meaty metal, reminiscent of Eastern Block technical crunch meeting the song structure of mid-90s Megadeth, mainly due to Marty Friedman's frequent guest guitar spots (which absolutely wail by the way) is what you get here. Add in some other guest guitars via Trouble's Bruce Franklin, and you probably had this much fun with spiritual metal since Stryper donned the yellow and black suits.
