Recorded in front of packed audiences at the Winter Jam Tour Spectacular, Thousand Foot Krutch brings a live record titled Untraveled Roads of hit songs from their independent albums, primed with crunchy guitars, powerful vocals and driving drums.
The setlist kicks off with the rocking tune “Running With Giants” and slides into the aggressive “Light Up the Sky”, with lead singer Trevor McNevan’s rapping in the verses and screaming in the chorus.
“The River” comes in next with catchy guitar riffs and simple, yet meaningful lyrics about washing away your sins.
The hooky tunes “Push” and title track “Untraveled Roads” follow, keeping the fact pace of the album chugging along like a locomotive.
The midpoint of the album keeps going with “Let the Sparks Fly”, where Trevor breaks it down and gets audience participation while Joel Bruyere plucks on the bass.
Up next come the head banging tune “Born This Way” and fan favorite “Courtesy Call”, followed by slower “Be Somebody”, with its moving lyrics about finding out who we are in life.
Another popular song “War of Change” comes along displaying some of Steve Augustine’s drumming and Trevor’s screaming vocals at mid-song.
The album comes to a close with pumping “The End Is Where We Begin”, and completely rocking it out on “A Different Kind of Dynamite”, showing off sit-in guitarist Andrew Welch’s abilities.
Untraveled Roads leaves the audiences breathless and pumped. Thousand Foot Krutch’s live concerts do not disappoint, and this album is a testament to their ability to convey strong, faith-based messages without compromising the good, contemporary rock sound.
