Scream The Prayer 2012 Recap
On Saturday June 30th, I attended the Scream The Prayer tour stop in Dayton for the third time in four years. I always look forward to going to the show every year to engage in some "Heavy Worship" with some of my favorite Christian metal and hardcore bands. This year I was glad to see The Great Commission command the pit once again and to see Sleeping Giant share their testimony. I was also curious to hear Michael Sawyer, the new vocalist for Close Your Eyes who did not disappoint. And I finally got to see veteran bands Emery and Demon Hunter for the first time. I purchased the new Gideon album and pre-ordered the new Your Memorial, because both bands killed it during their short sets. And I was surprised by A Bullet For Pretty Boy, Hundreth, and Mychildren Mybride, who I had never really heard before.
All in all, it was a great day and I already can't wait until next year!
The 5 songs I most wanted to hear:
1. Sleeping Giant - "Eyes Wide Open"
2. Demon Hunter - "Not Ready To Die"
3. Close Your Eyes - "Song For The Broken"
4. The Great Commission - "Draw The Line" (I wanted to hear their version of Katy Perry's "Firework")
5. Your Memorial - "Endeavor For Purpose"
