Overall Album Vibe: Fruhstuck has several previous release including, ‘Mine’ (2000), ‘Muza’ (2003), ‘Mud’ EP (2005) and ‘Be Careful’ in (2007). For their latest release, ‘Quiet,’ this Christian band from Poland displays a mastery of a modern rock style of music that knows when to slow it down and when to crank it up. When asked asked about the new album band member Martijn Krale had this to say, “‘Quiet’ is an important work for us. Over the last years, we have matured through the good, the bad and the ugly, and I think the songs reflect this greater maturity. The songs are honest about joys and struggles, but I guess there is more hope and faith in them than in our earlier work. Singing the songs helped me express my heart to God. We can use it to lift ourselves and others up, closer to the Maker. We hope that ‘Quiet’ will do just that… Give someone hope on a rainy day… Help someone who got stuck regain an eternal perspective. One day we’ll see peace forever… No more wars, injustice and hatred. It will be peaceful and quiet…But until that day, we want to make some good noise about it. Once the new album is out, we expect more growth in our Polish radio and rock festival presence, and we’ll play the maximum amount of concerts we can handle. “Highlight tracks from ‘Quiet,’ for me included the interesting named opening track, “Pig.” Along with “Louder than Words,” that deals with the need to bless others, not curse them even though they may have done something wrong to you, the need to overcome evil with good. “Nothing is Impossible,” deals with the need for all of us to do our part for building the Kingdom and that we often limit the real power that we’ve been given to accomplish our goals.
Review Tagline: On their latest release, ‘Quiet,’ Christian rocker’s Fruhstuck strikes the perfect balance of melodic vs. up-tempo modern rock music.
