Recorded at Divebomb Studios in Nashville, and Off the Wall Studios in Spring Hill, TN, Colorado hard rock/metal duo Dead Set Saints puts their best foot forward with their debut EP, boasting a dream team of Christian Rock industry veterans, featuring production by Andrew Stanton of Disciple, mixing by Jake Jones of As We Ascend, and mastering by Robert Venable of As We Ascend. Successfully crowd-funded via Kickstarter, "We Are the Atoned" is a raw, honest work from two guys who just want to show others what God's love truly looks like.
Right out of the gates, "Golden Days" opens the EP with rapid double-kick driven guitar riffing, dealing with emotions and hurt stemming from unwanted change and division - and moving on to fulfill God given purpose regardless, while songs like "Your Move" and the title track present listeners with anthems of security in their identity as a child of God. The rest of the EP ranges from the heavy-hitting fight song "Get Ready", co-written by Andrew Stanton, to the raw, reflective praise of "The Love". Dead Set Saints hopes that through this EP, listeners hear the truth that there is a God who loves them and that their life is not meaningless.
