From what I can remember, my real exposure to Holy Soldier came from an old Christian music video program on the INSP network called Signal Exchange hosted by Corey Edwards. The video was for See No Evil. I was instantly hooked. I loved the slick, polished metal sound. However by the time I saw the video and became a fan, their first album wasn't the easiest to find. I had to "settle" with their follow album, Last Train.

Eventually I found their self titled album on cassette at a used record store. Being that they first had signed with A&M Records it was easier to find their music. I can't say enough positive things about this album. Steven Patrick has a great voice and it's perfectly suited for this style of music. At times his voice has this haunting sound. If you've heard him sing then you may know what I'm trying to convey.

My 10th grade High School year I did a project on abortion and my anti-views. I used several forms of media as part of my presentation and content, some of which were Christian music (such as Killers of the Unborn by Barren Cross). I really had wish I knew about the song See No Evil at the time as I love the lyrics of the song. Add the children singing on the chorus and it gives the song even more power.

All I can say is buy this album. If you are a fan of Cinderella or early 90's metal in general, I think you'll find this album right up your alley. Now this does tend to be somewhat expensive on CD on the secondary market. I paid a little less than $15 for my copy. Little did I know at the time of purchase that I was buying a promotional copy of the album. I don't think mine ultimately is any different, but I'm so glad to have Holy Soldier's freshmen effort on disc. Instead of padding the pockets of a stranger, head on over to Holy Soldier's official website and buy the album (and others) for only $17 in their store!

Tear Down The Walls (3:58)

He puts on a face
And walks out through the door
What lies behind the mask
He's trying to ignore
Inside he holds a child
That one he used to be
But is no more

She lives in a fairy tale
Her life's not what it seems
She's just a paper doll
Like in the magazines
Trying so hard to hide
The bitter pain she feels
But it won't go away
She knows that it's so real

But there's nowhere to hide
From what you feel inside
Jesus is all we really need
He can release us
And set the captives free
He wants to
Tear down the walls

He walks up to the grave
In memory of the dead
He thinks of all the things
He wished that he had said
So now he lives to bear
The weight of all his guilt
Within the confines of the walls
That he has built

Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls

But there's nowhere to hide
From what you feel inside
Jesus is all we really need
He can release us
And set the captives free
He wants to free us
If we would just believe
And let Him
Tear down the walls
