This is posted for my main horse Dan, who loves this record a lot. Trouble is one of those bands that people have heard of, but aren't really listening to in the way that they should be. They might know something about them being Christian, or they might have hazy memories of Dave Grohl's metal ideas. Let me set this straight, the way you should be listening to Trouble is after falling headlong, with your body burst open and all of your intestines spilled out.
Trouble are clearly guys who really like Black Sabbath and Judas Priest. They also have a strong grasp on how to make blues scales sound like eternal damnation. The song-writing strategy appears to be have a mid-paced palm-mutey Judas Priest part, then self-flagellate with a plodding thunder punishment riff. Repeat eight times, then do a Cream cover. Although The Fall of Lucifer does have a cute little pop punk chorus.
