When I discovered the world of Christian music in the year 2000, I hadn't yet discovered a taste for the heavier side of it all. But a friend of mine introduced me to Drawing Black Lines
and that's about the time that changed. There were a lot of things I didn't really understand about heavy music or even how music in general was produced, and DBL
all but destroyed my sensibilities. So, of course, I was hooked. With all of those intense screams, groovy bass lines, and meaty riffs, I can't help but keep this in semi-regular rotation.

Like Scott, Drawing Black Lines
was uncharacteristically heavy music for my young tastes. My family had been enthusiastic fans of the wailing vocals and ferocious riffs of Bride at the height of their music-making (the Snakes in the Playground
/ Scarecrow Messiah
years), but Project 86 was an entirely different animal. This album would make me a diehard fan, and I've enjoyed following their career since. Drawing Black Lines
is probably the band at their absolute best, and it's still a rewarding listen over two decades since its release.
