No B-Sides Songs Will Play At Disciple’s Horseshoes & Hand Grenades Online Concert

It’s pure greed on our part at TheBlast.FM.  Our own Colin Cruz just asked Disciple lead singer Kevin Young if the band will be playing any of the B-Sides songs at their online concert on Saturday January 23rd.

The B-Sides, you ask?

Yeah.  Remember?  That Disciple album that came out 10 years ago called Horseshoes & Hand Grenades…also had some digital add-on songs that didn’t make the main record.

It was called Horseshoes & Hand Grenades B-Sides.   And it had some fabulous songs on it that we have Blasted over the years:  namely The FuryComedy TragedyDisasterpiece, and Watch It Burn.

And the answer is?   No.

Young reminds us that they are playing the entire (main) Horseshoes & Hand Grenades album from front to back, plus playing two new songs, including The Blast hit Darkness Dies.    

Those two songs plus the 12 on Horseshoes & Hand Grenades makes 14, and Young says he can only handle 14 songs a night.

Fair enough.  It was worth asking.   Inquiring minds wanted to know.

Christian Rock bands Disciple and Kutless are getting involved in the efforts.

Book Review: The Kingstone Bible

The pictures above, snapped with a cell phone camera, do not do justice to the incredible artistry in these volumes.


BOOK REVIEW:  The Kingstone Bible (Volume 1)


By Colin “Cruz” Strombeck TheBlast.FM Program Director


If you grew up on comic books and/or if you sometimes find yourself getting distracted by the cares of life while trying to read the Bible…Kingstone Comics has a Bible for you.


Here is a Bible that has pictures on every page to visually describe what you are reading about…which may be a big help for some readers to stay focused on the content…and for other readers, it may breathe fresh life into the text that they’ve read many times.


And not just any pictures.  Beautiful, amazing artistry.  Dark, when the scene calls for it, and always compelling and very descriptive.   This Bible adds that visual layer of context to what’s going on…in rich detail.


Published in 3 volumes, every book from Genesis to Revelation is covered.  Every major story of the Bible is covered…and in our brief time holding the volumes, everything looks to be Biblically accurate.  


This will make a great addition to the family library.  And to your church library.


This will be the first in a series of reviews we write about this 3-volume edition, as we are just getting started.
