The Letter Black has returned with a solid second album following their last release, Hanging on by a Thread. The new album, Rebuild, brings heavy guitars and powerful vocals. Sarah Anthony, lead vocalist, dominates the spectrum of vocals from soft and quiet to insane screams. She also shares some of the vocals with her husband and guitarist, Mark Anthony (featured on “Shattered” and “Branded,” as well as others).

Rebuild consists of several quieter anthems mixed with harder, intense tracks. Many of the songs feature a good scream or two, and the song “Devil” amps up the screaming to a more prominent level. Lead vocalist Sarah has the ability to crank out some pretty incredible screams. However, the album also includes several quieter, scream-free tracks like “Outside Looking In” and “Found.”

Surprisingly, my favorite tracks on the album are polar opposites of each other. “Found” is a quieter, slower song with a message of hope: No matter how far you have gone, “When you’re lost, you can always be found.” On the other hand, I also love “Devil,” a dirty, darker plea for help. The emotion is raw and the screams throughout the chorus and bridge are executed perfectly.

Rebuild is another great showing for Christian Rock, and I love that it is coming from a female vocalist. High vocal intensity combined with a forceful drive makes this a great addition to The Letter Black’s collection.
