dc Talk has had a profound impact on many of us here at Rock On Purpose, and also on the Christian rock community as a whole. In particular, their iconic Jesus Freak album was released 24 years ago this month.
Texas-based hard rock band Relent recreated the famous title track “Jesus Freak” in honor of the anniversary of the influential album, according to a post on social media. Though it is a tall task to cover such a hugely popular song, Relent did a nice job of putting an edgy spin on an already in-your-face rocker.
Relent is a hard rock/Nu Metal band with elements of rap and hip hop. Relent is not just a band, but a movement with a passion that can only be explained through the intensity of their live performances. They recently released a 7-song independent album called Heart Attack, and they will join Disciple and Seventh Day Slumber on the 2020 City Rockfest Tour.
