anyone else a fan of this band. just pulled out their albums after abut 2 years and can't believe it has been that long. Great stuff

I don't know this lot mate,who would you compare them to ????

 

Wow, I don't really know. The music is top notch and the singer sometimes has a Tommy Paris or a Tom Keifer feel to him.

I know Scarecrow is a christian band, and John Blaze recorded the entire album that became a Touch Of Madness by himself,and it fuckin rocks, my favorite song is Blood Runs Blind, I also like Till The Day I Die I Rock For You, very underated band.

Debut is good, not so much into the follow-up. And don't forget Arabia's '1001 night's either - more in line with the debut.

Many of the great songs of the debut was actually re-recorded for the Arabia album. I think the two bands had almost the same members as well.

I Think Touch Of Madness is fucking hard, it rocks way harder then the s\t, the s\t is way more melodic, but the songs on T.O.M. are dark and haunting, and way more professional sounding then anything off the s\t!

Where did you get that information from? Never heard of them being remotely Christian, and their lyrics certainly don't reflect any spirituality. Not saying you're wrong, just honestly curious to as to where you heard this little nugget.

Back in 1995, when Pavement Records was set to release Touch Of Madness, they released Beggars Bag as single to all of the rock radio stations that played Pavement Records material, the station I jocked at was one of them, they sent a press release with the single, it was an interview with Blaze, at this time I had never heard of them, but he mentioned the S\T disc, and that a lot of christian bands and fans, wont even consider Scarecrow a christian band, because they dont sugar coat their music with overlays of scriptures and other things christian bands do, all the lyrics are secular, but they are written from a christian stand point, about world events, and just life in general, they don't sway one way or another, but the band are extremely christian, but they don't promote themselves as a christian band,

Huh. I had no idea. Cool. Sounds like a classic case of "we're a band of Christians" rather than "we're a Christian band." Happens all the time now, but back then the line between Christian music and secular music was usually a little more clear-cut.

 

Thanks for the info. I learned something today. :)

And another thing, being I heard A Touch Of Madness before I heard the S\T disc, if you really take a look, I think there was a night and day difference between the content on the 2 discs, lyrically, that first disc is nothing like the second disc as far a the lyrical content, I think there is a lot more hint of christian based lyrics in A Touch Of Madness, I just thought about that after I listened to the 2 discs again, but it's never outright even on A Touch Of Madness!
