I love this album. solid all the way through and very godly lyrics; unashamed of their love for Jesus. it reminds me of 80's rock with 90's production, a dying breed to say the least. If you miss the days of good Jesus heavy metal, this cd will satisfy you very much.

Throughout the years there have been bands and artists that have defined who we are, and in the Christian faith, there are those bands that have reflected our desired passion to serve Christ in a greater light. You pop in the CD and it takes you into a militant realm and into a place of communion with Christ. With the way our industry is structured today,

however, there are many bands who never get heard, and deserve that final stand to proclaim the message that has changed hearts and minds towards Christ. One of those very bands R.I.P. 2000 was the Canadian-American Trio BLOOD-N-FIRE, consisting of Canadian members MAT GAUTHIER (lead vox / guitars), BILL RANKIN (bass), and KEVIN REYNOLDS (drums / bgv) hailing from Detroit, Michigan.

Blood-N-Fire were as good as their live shows. Tight musicianship, excellent songwriting, and killer vocals. We really thought that these guys would make a dent in the Christian market. Their sound was unique, yet recalls the great bands of the past like Bride (Snakes-era) and Guardian (Fire & Love-era) and even a bit of the groove of Disciple and King's X. This a very rare and hard to find CD.

The Line Up For "Upper Room Band" was,

Jeff Black

Let's see, where to start......

About in 1991 I moved from Wallaceburg Ontario (where I'd grown up) to Sarnia Ontario to play in a band with drummer Tim Tanner. I was roommates with Bill Rankin who at the time played in a local Christian rock band called Armour. Tim and I had a group called Revelation with which we played a few shows. In the meantime,


Bill quit Armour and joined us. We were a trio but wanted a better lead singer than me, as well as possibly another guitar player. We met lead singer Jason Dahlke who was singing for a Christian band from Toronto Ontario called Insane. He and Bill talked about him moving to Sarnia to sing with us. Jason had recently met Mat Gauthier and was thinking about putting a band together with him. Anyway,

they both ended up moving to Sarnia to join us. The group with the five of us was called Nazarene Sect. We played a few shows and recorded some demos. After that band split, Tim and I started writing more songs and we were joined again by Bill and the Mat. This time Mat was on lead vocals.

In Nazarene Sect Jason sang lead and Mat and I sang harmony. The new four piece band became Upper Room. We wrote and recorded quite a bunch of songs and played a bunch of shows. After this band broke up, Tim and I had a band called Ugly As Sin and Mat and Bill formed Blood N Fire with Kevin Reynolds. That's the history in a nutshell. I'll send you the mp3s in a bunch of other emails. I keep them in my Hotmail account so I can send them out easy. Peace!

Thanks for getting back to me. I get together with Bill Rankin occasionally for chicken wings and we're talking about doing an Upper Room reunion show. Anyway, take care! If you have any more questions, feel free to email me.
