The band who bought out the Sonic Flood name, just isn't very good.

Well...there are spots in the sogns where I can tell they recorded the vocals in two portions....
Spots where Rick is singing and before he finishes a word, he is already singing the next line....
And like on Lord Of The Dance, they have his voice alternating between normal and the distorted mic sound....
I dunno...I guess its just me but spots struck me as off..IMHO....

Sorry bout my typing...I have no spell checker and whe I use my delete (backspace) key it clears everythign I've typed usually...

ok i totally know what youre talkin about now, the only song i noticed it in was lord of the dance tho. And in most of the songs i liked the voice distortion, it set it off to where it was a worship song, but not at the same time. whatever maybe its just my own musician oppinion

The old band was so much better. They were like my fav. These guys really didn't live up to expectations.

The old SonicFlood put out what had to be one of the greatest cd's ever. Those are just too big of shoes to fill by a band that is just ok.

The problem is, and always has been, with the name. After the debut CD, with the name SONICFLOOd came certain expectations. The band that now has the name SONICFLOOd is *not* in any way SONICFLOOd. None of them were original members of the band, so in order for them to sound the same at all they would be copying what the original band did. There's absolutely nothing wrong with this "new" band. Their CD Resonate and their newest one (from what I've heard so far) are decent (at best) pop/worship recordings. They are fairly solid. However, they are NOT SONICFLOOd. That's still the problem and always will be with many people. Instead of starting some legal battle like Rick Heil did he should have just dropped the name and started a new band. With it he would have lost the reputation to live up to (which hasn't happened) and also lost the comparisons that will never end.

I, for one, don't care terribly for this "new" Sonicflood. The Resonate CD was okay in my opinion because it was original stuff. However, this newest one is almost entirely cover songs. I realize that the original Sonicflood CD was mostly cover songs, but the difference is that these songs were dramatically different from their regular recordings. SF did them in a style all their own many times with different chords and melodies than the originals even had. This "new" SF on the new record has mostly cover songs but has redone them in a way that is hardly different than the way we already know them. I think of the current single from the new album..."Famous One". Same style as the original only you've added Rick Heil's vocals to it....and on this song he's quite annoying *in my opinion*. He doesn't stay on key well in it to me and just doesn't fit in general. Just my 3 cents worth.

I didn't know Rick Heihl had a lawsuit but i can understand why. If he had dropped the name sonicflood and then put out teh stuff they did then they wouldn't have sold nearly as many albums.

If Rick felt that God was telling him to keep the name, then I don't see what's wrong! Why are there so many people out there criticising him? There is nothing wrong with his music. It may be a different style from the original band, but does that mean that one can't worship God just because the music is different? IF that's the way, I don't think you really understand the meaning of worship. No offense to anyone.

Everymember is new? In the pictures, I can see several members who were present for the first album. They grew hair which may throw some off. It looks to me like only the singer has changed. I've read in the publications that Jeff Deyo left the band, but I've never seen (other than this thread) that the entire band was new.

ORIGINAL ABND:
Otto Price- bass, founding member in 1998....was replaced on basss by Aaron Blanton in 1999. Otto does some producing and songwriting and works very closely with Jeff Deyo.

Jason Halbert- keys & programming, founding member in 1998, left in the split in 2000. Producer now.

Will Denton- drums, founding member in 1998, left in split in 2000, apparently has left professional music.
(these 3 guys were the abdn for DC Talk for about 3 years before forming SFd)

Jeff Deyo- lead vocals, original member, 1998-2000. Asked to leave the band shortly before the split. Has an awesoem solo career now.

Dwayne Larring- guiatrs, origial ember 1998-2000, left in split. He was the guitarist for SevenDay Jesus before joining SFd. He works with Halbert as a producer now.

Rick Heil- repalced Blanton on abss in late 1999, only meber to remain under the SONICFLOOd logo when they split up. Rebuilt the band, took voer elad vocals and sognwriting adn moved to secodary guitars. Rick wasn't an original member, but he was on the Live disc, their best one, so I included him.


Personally Deyo's solo career is truer to SONICFLOOd tradition adn sound, and better both musically and more worship oriented.




As to comments made about msdot of the sogns being covers..well, friend,Ig uess you neglected to notive that SONICFLOOd wrote as many of their own sogns under Deyo as they have under Heil.....don't look for a reason to knock them, jsut say you dont like them adn leave it there,..dont try to throw dirt in the grave when they are in the casket already.....sermon done.

Hey - have to reply to this - I am Will Denton, and I never, ever played for Sonic Flood in any way. The only connection that might have been made is that I played on some of Jeff Deyo's earliest solo records, long before he ever joined SF. And as far as my being "out of Professional music", whoa! I've been playing with Steven Curtis Chapman for the nine years since I left dcTalk. Please, please don't spread information like this that you obviously haven't confirmed.....thanks!
