Disciple Postpones Online Concert And Multiplies…

Disciple has postponed their second online concert until Friday December 11th, due to someone in one of the bands’ households testing positive for Covid-19.

In other group news, Disciple has multiplied into two bands.  The second band is Honor & Glory , the name for the new worship arm of the band.

Disciple says this about their offshoot band Honor & Glory:  Where the mission of Disciple is to reach the unreachable, the vision of Honor & Glory is to create a musical atmosphere where hearts, minds, souls, and voices center on the greatness and wonders of our amazing God through worship.

The debut album from Honor & Glory drops on BEC Records in 2021.

Skillet Collects Two More Dove Awards

Skillet picks up two more Dove Awards:

  • Rock/Contemporary Song Of The Year:  Legendary
  • Rock/Contemporary Album Of The Year:  Victorious

We have two reactions to this.  The fact that we love the band Skillet and we love its members has us saying: “Congratulations!  We are very happy for you.”

But the sarcastic/jaded side of us says…

Well, of course Skillet continues to win Dove Awards now!

They are accepted within the realm of mainstream Christian music and records.

This is bittersweet for us long-time Skillet fans that are still upset about the fact that they were passed over in favor of much less deserving bands like The W’s back in Skillet’s early heydays.

Polling of The Blast audience indicated that Demon Hunter War should have been the winner in the Rock album of the year category, but we highly doubt any band with the name demon in it, with such heavy music, will fare well in a “Rock/Contemporary” category against a band that has been accepted in the circles of mainstream Christian radio.

Most of the voters probably saw Skillet on the ballot and saw the other 4 contenders and said “Who are these guys?”

We’re not confident that there is a lot of actual knowledge about Christian Rock (and about the other great bands that were nominated for these awards) among the Dove Award voters.
