Beyond Extraordinary Ep. 40: Dissident Prophet

Dissident Prophet

“My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.” Psalm 57:7

The Christian world is saturated with music, and rightly so. We see repeatedly throughout scripture the importance of music as praise and worship. But with the increase of popularity of contemporary Christian music, inevitably many of the bands and musicians have started to sound the same, to my ear anyway. Enter Dissident Prophet. This band’s sound is decidedly unique, drawing on influences outside of today’s top 40 hits, and highlighting themes that many of today’s artists would be timid to touch as evidenced by the title of their soon to be released 5th studio album, Red Moon Rising, which is their first since 2012’s Weapons of Mass Deception.

Robbie Maxwell, Andy Jennings (Please check out my previous interview with Andy by clicking amoxicillin dose for sinusitis), Melanie J, and Tom Livermore… along with manager and marketer extraordinaire Adrian Checkley have all joined me in this episode to discuss their music, their faith, and more; and as a fan of this band, I could not be more excited to introduce these wonderful people and their incredible music to all of you!

In this episode we discuss their music along with topics ranging from testimonies to transhumanism.. from faith to fellowship… and so much more. And let’s not forget the music!! Btw, Natalina even contributed some viola to the tracks Fly Away and Broken. I know, right?!?!

From the Press Release for their upcoming album:
