Advent - The Lines of Healing
cd review by iceberg

When I first saw Advent, it was in their hometown of Denton and until that night I was only familiar with their song "Blame". WIth a little talking to Brandan, lead vox, I was able to get a copy of the CD for play on the site. They quickly became a station favorite and running into Brandan became more and more common as the months would roll by.
Throat surgery took Brandan out for awhile but I still ran into him off and on and he kept me up to date on what the band was doing and I know I was looking foward to seeing them live again once Brandan was ready to roll.

For the release of "The Lines of Healing" I was able to corner Brandan again and get a copy for the site and after just a time or two through the entire CD, it's easy to tell that the band has taken a step forward musically in their continued growth into the Dallas music scene and are on their way to establishing Advent as one of the bands to keep an eye out for in the near future.

Starting off their latest effort is "Better than OK" which does a great job in setting the tone of "The Lines of Healing". It's also a bit of a tease to make you wonder if your favorite song has been played so soon, but like a drug dealer giving you just a sample, there's more coming to feed the addiction.

Caving In and Grow are the next two on the cd and both are going to play a part in wearing out the "back" button on your cd player, but I do encourage you to let it ride as best you can to hear the rest of the cd.

The cd ends with easily the most memorable song in "I'm Sorry" which is lyrically one of their best efforts and possibly tells the best story on the cd itself. If anything shows a glimpse inside of a writers mind, "I'm Sorry" is *that song* for Advent. This song will pull you in and bring you back time and time again and more than any other song on this cd shows the growth and potential of Advent. This one comes across the most "real" on the entire cd and hope it's a glimpse of even more great music to come from the band.

You can check 'em out at www.myspace.com/advent and hear the music, even "I'm Sorry" is up for replay on their profile. Find a date and time for a live show and go see them live. Leave 'em a comment and tell them iceberg sent ya!
