Building on the strengths of their previous three albums, Canadian rock group Downhere return with a stunning release that may just be their best yet. Containing some striking musical imagery courtesy of producers Mark Heimermann (dc Talk, Michael W Smith) and Stephen Gause (Jars Of Clay) plus some refreshingly articulate songwriting, 'Ending Is Beginning' finds the band on top form. Add to the mix the winning vocal partnership of guitarist Marc Martel and keyboard player Jason Germain and you have an album that surpasses all those Kevin Max and Casting Crowns comparisons of the past. Never content to write about comfortable topics, the boys excel in the thought provoking "Cathedral Made Of People" which paints the picture of the possible future persecution of the Western church whilst "Something Heavenly" portrays a bitingly honest image of the personal struggles of faith. To keep things fresh, the band mix the full on rock of "Bleed For This Love" with the infectious pop of "Coming Back Home" whilst the delightful Cuban exposť "My Last Amen" struts and swaggers its way through four minutes of pure joy. "The Problem", a protest song with a difference, is one of the best songs of the year so far but the same could be said for every other song on this spectacular album.

Fourth album from the Canadian rock band.

The fourth album from one of the finest Christian rock bands around is a tour de force.

Put aside any pigeonholes and boxes that Downhere may have been put in over the years and open your ears to a significant creative leap for this Canadian band. Defying the trend of emotionally empty rock, Ending is Beginning jumps out of the speakers with a message of hope to a broken world. Ending is Beginning is catchy without being slick, uplifting without being pretentious, rocking without being raucous. Through relentless touring the band has added to their powerful sound while dual lead vocalists Marc Martel and Jason Germain deliver carefully crafted lyrics filled with optimism and hope.

He may sound like K-Max, but Marc and the boyz sure can rock and with this sophomore release, they've hit paydirt!
