For people new to the genre of contemporary Christian music, the words “hardcore” or “emo” may seem a bit out of place. But, not when you hear Stavesacre’s trash- and emo- infused tracks. Starting as a mainly metal outfit (that earned a spot on two Billboard charts), the band’s lineup went through a handful of changes, which ultimately influenced its sound, driving it more toward emo rock. That evolution is captured perfectly on (stāvz'ā'kər), which offers melodic vocal lines and perfectly distorted guitar licks.
