A Lesser Hope / Press

“...I’m not very religious, but there are some christian metal bands that make me feel oddly spiritual when I listen to them. A Lesser Hope is one of the bands. Combining complex, chugging guitar riffs with melodic vocals and an influential message, A Lesser Hope are one of the best bands in this genre to emerge in the last couple of years. ...I would say that they are doing it better than anyone I’ve heard in a long time. To me, they are right up there with War of Ages and As I Lay Dying. You can tell they really believe in what they are doing because the songs are just so good and at the end of the day, they write good songs and that’s all you need, regardless of what message you’re trying to convey. This band has a lot of potential and are on the right track to big success. They just need a bigger following and a larger fan base to support them. So go check them out whether you believe in god or not. They will certainly welcome you with open arms either way.”

“When I sat down to review A Lesser Hope, I was expecting another run-of-the-mill metal band, screaming their aggressions at the listener. Fortunately, I was completely wrong. This band knows what they’re doing, and they do it well. The first thing that caught my attention was the technicality. A Lesser Hope incorporates quite a bit of impressive guitar work and scales into their music. The song I was particularly drawn to was “Heat Fire And Darkness,” as it provides an onslaught of fretwork and precise drumming throughout the course of the song. Another track, “Rise And Fall,” shows off the talented guitarists with a catchy, complex melody that matched the vocal work and drums perfectly.”
