SpiritN3D - These Three Nails - Catholic CD Review


SpiritN3D describes their music as a blend of Christian Contemporary and Rock music. Their new release These Three Nails aims high and at certain points achieves some measure of craftsmanship in the rock genre. The recording is certainly clean and full of high energy guitar licks.

The biggest disappointment with These Three Nails lies in the songwriting itself. Both melodically and lyrically the songs seem to lack focus. While the messages were positive, I found myself looking for a melodic or lyrical hook that never seemed to be present. Additionally, many of the songs ran for over six minutes; typically songs this length need to be well developed in order to engage the listener.

That is not to say that SpiritN3D lacks heart or talent. In fact, I could see a band of their level doing a great job of covering some Contemporary Christian hits. I would humbly suggest this approach for their next project.
