For the God of the Angel Armies

by Noisegate

Independent

If Caedmon’s Call got a little rowdy and played a harder variety of rock ‘n’ roll they might sound a lot like Noisegate. That is not to say that indie rockers Noisegate is on the same playing field with CC. They are, after all, an indie band without mega-thousands of dollars available to pour into production values. But the stream of consciousness songwriting, the undeniably hooky melodies, the tag-team vocals from frontman Clay Walker augmented by the sweet tones of Whitney Patterson makes it easy to connect the dots.

For the God of the Angel Armies may not garner a lot of radio airplay. Two-thirds of the songs on the album boldly explore far beyond the magic four-minute mark, effectively removing them from play-list contention for most stations. Beyond that there is not a can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head-sing-along song on the project. That is an observation, rather than an indictment of the material. Let’s face it, Radiohead will never find its stuff on the Top 40 either.

What you are left with are eleven songs that plumb the depths of faith through the lens of the contemporary American experience. Musically akin to alt-folk rockers, Toad the Wet Sprocket, the melodies are a canny mixture of sweet and melancholy acoustic guitars shot through with strategically interjected electrics. Lyrically you can forget the familiar verse-verse-bridge-chorus-verse format. Noisegate opts for blank verse set to music with occasional half-rhymes and rhyming couplets thrown in for good measure. You can also forget the familiar clichéd platitudes so prevalent in Christian music (or in mainstream music, for that matter). This is stuff you may have to chew on for a while.

Best tunes include the electrified rocker, “Holy Surrender” which features Whitney on a rare lead vocal; the gently meandering “Wings of Faith” with its Dylan-esque vocals and message of repentance and reconciliation; and “Dangerous to Stand” where the Caedmon’s Call comparisons reach their zenith.

Bio

"I'm asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with Him in His house my whole life long. I'll contemplate His beauty; I'll study at His feet. That's the only quiet, secure place in a noisy world, The perfect getaway, far from the buzz of traffic." (Psalm 27:4-5, The Message)

The world is full of "noise", opportunities and distractions bidding for our time. Jesus is our "gate" that cuts out those things and lets us focus on Him; The one who created us, died for us, and desires to have a close intimate relationship with us. NOISEGATE is here to loudly proclaim Jesus to a lost world and to introduce them to His love through fun rock music. The band is also passionate about confronting Christians to be set apart from the world, encouraging them to strive to be more like Jesus. NOISEGATE prayer is that everything we do brings glory to God and helps to advance His kingdom.

Their style is unique.
NOISEGATE is a Christian band composed of 5 members who have a wide array of musical influences ranging from everything to Def Leopard to Michael W. Smith. Their music has been described as a mix between early 90’s grunge to today’s modern rock. Musically, NOISEGATE has been compared to a blend between Audio Adrenaline, Aerosmith, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Vocally, NOISEGATE has been compared to a blend of Our Lady Peace and No Doubt. Although NOISEGATE has only officially been together since the Summer of 2005, the group has been performing together for over 4 years.

NOISEGATE released their first album "For the God of the Angel Armies" in spring of 2006. The album is filled with God inspired truth about everything from worship to the state of the modern church. NOISEGATE has been building a name by staying focused on being biblically sound instead of politically correct. It is NOISEGATE's belief that if the post modern world is falling apart all around us, we as believers in Christ must stay true to the teaching of Christ and put our trust and assurance in the fact that He is still Sovereign and His promise to us will be fulfilled on the completion of the great commission. NOISEGATE strongly feels called by God that music is the way for these five individuals to bring Christ to the unraveling world. NOISEGATE mission is not to change the world, but simply to live in harmony with God’s plan for the band.
