What do you get when four brothers, raised in a conservative Anabaptist tradition that didn't allow them to listen to rock music until they were teenagers, decide to form their own band?Classic-rock-inspired Christian Rock with piano solos and unexpected moments of acapella three-part harmony.David, Paul, Philip, and Daniel Zach are RemedyDrive, a band out of Lincoln, Nebraska. Formed in 1998, they originally called themselves The Aslan Band before switching to Remedy, and later RemedyDrive They released a number of albums independently before signing on with Word Records, and their latest CD is Daylight is Coming.The official site is here.
The music of RemedyDrive provides examples of:
- Christian Rock
- Heartbeat Soundtrack: "What Happens (At the End)"
- Self-Titled Album
- Shout-Out: "Clive Staples" is pretty much made up of references to the works of C.S. (Clive Staples) Lewis.
- Sibling Team: Four brothers, one band.
- Something Completely Different: The last track of Magnify, "Smile Upon Me", is straight-up acapella harmony - not an instrument in sight. After eleven tracks of rock, it's almost Mood Whiplash. And beautiful.
