“Downpor seems to do what almost all CHRISTIAN ROCK bands fail at, the art of mixing the lyrics and the music while never losing sight of their mission statement. I know many of you may pass on this band simply because they are a CHRISTIAN ROCK band, but do not let that scare you. They are truly a great band with a positive message that is a welcome change these days. I look forward to the next CD they release. If this is what Christian Rock as turned into, it’s on a great path... To me, this means DOWNPOR is not in this for the fame, the fortune or any other things that may come to them as the carry out their mission. This kind of drive is very rare, not just in music, but in life also. I think this may give them an extra push as they begin their journey of mixing God and Rock and Roll. You know they say God moves in mysterious ways and this could be one of them…so LET’S ROCK with GOD!”
"Fans of Christian Rock, rejoice! If you like the hard hitting sounds you hear at Skillet, Kutless of Thousand Foot Krutch concerts, you have just found your new favorite band in Downpor. This four member band recently released its debut album, "Ended It All", and with the gritty sound and thoughtful lyrics it's definately worth a listen. Vocally, lead singer Darrin Keith channels some of the wonderful rockiness made popular by the greats of grunge while employing the emotional range you hear from singers like Trevor McNevan of Thousand Foot Krutch. This combination melds well with guitar that is very reminiscent of Collide-era Skillet. As musicians who live to serve God with the talents they are blessed with, Downpor creates music that is relatable through lyrics based on personal experiences that are sure to touch the listener's heart. Don't miss out on a chance to purchase "Ended It All".
"With such influences as Thousand Foot Krutch, Kutless, and Skillet, Downpor's release 'Ended It All' refreshes the Christian Rock sound with lyrics to encourage listeners that in today's world it is way cool to be Christian."
