Skillet - Rise Unwilling to stand pat or rest on their laurels, the band—lead vocalist/bassist John Cooper, guitarist/keyboardist Korey Cooper (John's wife), drummer/duet partner Jen Ledger and lead guitarist Seth Morrison, making his first appearance on record with Skillet—continue to explore new terrain on 'Rise', expertly produced by Howard Benson, who previously helmed the mega-successful 'Awake'.

It isn't just the songs themselves that make Rise so gripping, it's also the song sequences—like the radical contrast between the almost unbearable tension of 'Sick of It' suddenly giving way to the ecstatic release of 'Good to Be Alive,' or the way the closing three-song progression of 'My Religion,' 'Hard to Find' and 'What I Believe' builds to a thrilling musical, thematic and emotional crescendo.

Clearly, these songs and the album as a whole are embedded with an impassioned overarching message. This message courses with a tidal pull through Skillet's entire body of work, but on Rise, it's artfully

This message courses with a tidal pull through Skillet's entire body of work, but on Rise, it's artfully woven into a gripping coming-of-age narrative. This sprawling work stands as the band's first concept album—though it wasn't premeditated.

For nearly a decade, Tycho has been known as the musical alias of Scott Hansen, but with the release of 'Awake' – his second album for Ghostly International – the solo project has evolved into a three-piece band. Relating closer to post-rock than ambient soundscapes, the record is situated in the present, sounding more like Hansen than drawing from his influences. This is, in many ways, the first true Tycho record.
