"Alive" - 2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


The finest hour of any generation arrives when it examines the ideas it has been taught, and challenges the norm, searching for the truth – whether that be questioning the politics behind a war, a social structure, or in loftier moments, a belief system. Music has always been at the forefront of delivering these challenges. Kainos is making it their mission to use their music to challenge the young people of their own generation, daring them to step outside their comfort zone, and step into the fire. They issue this challenge with their debut CD, Alive. The music is aggressive and loud, daring complacency and calling down the in-your-face rock previous generations took as their call to arms.

The “fire” Kainos refers to is the fire of Christianity-the unquenchable thirst to learn more about Jesus Christ and God, and the willingness to step outside tradition, and really seek the truth. Kainos wants to help the disenfranchised youth of their generation become “kainos”. The word “kainos” is Greek for new-as in “a new creation,” taken from 2Corinthians 5:17.

Kainos is a fusion of raw musical energy, diverse influences, youthful exuberance and a spiritual passion for a radical, and authentic faith that speaks to an audience emerging into adulthood.

“Our heart is to challenge this generation not to be bound to traditions set by the church of the world.” Explains Ben Stacy, lead guitarist/vocals and principal writer for the band. “We want to wake them up, tell them it’s great that they are going to church, but don’t sleepwalk through it. Don’t show up just because it’s what you’ve done all your life. Dig in there. Find out what it’s all about. Be a new creation.”

With Hannah’s powerhouse voice backed by the bands driving force, the band creates music that speaks to the urgent needs of their generation. The result is the group’s debut, Alive – a brash mixture of both message and music. “We are not apologetic for who we are and what we believe,” comments Ben. “Don’t be complacent. Don’t sign up for the status quo. Ask questions and seek answers. Move forward and find grace. We tried to put all of this out music.”
