Whether new or old to the Christian Hadrcore scene...
You will like this album. It's one of those albums you shouldn't just buy a track or two of from itunes, because the album strings together from start to finish very nicely. I first heard "Up Against The Ropes" and "Composure", and really loved Jake Luhrs' energy, and I also appreciated being able to understand the lyrics.
It's often been said that Christian Hardcore stands on par with and often surpasses other bands in the genre. Not only that, but many Metalheads and the like enjoy both Secular and Christian Hardcore. Messengers is definitely one of the albums listeners from both circles will enjoy. Look out for "Truth of a Liar", the first two i mentioned, and the last two on the album, which have to be heard back to back.
Heavy and harder than korn.
Do not miss out on this cd. Awesome loud song's on here. They make korn sound like a bunch of wimps. Boy i like this cd messengers august burns red is a great cd to have like most of the songs oh here from first to last. Metal at it's best all the way.

Messengers- August Burns Red
The first time I heard August Burns Red I was impressed with their sound. Most of the heavier Christian music I have heard isn't put together as well as the rest of the heavy rock world. They sound similiar to Killswitch Engage, if your looking for a fast heavy alblum to listen to I recommend adding Messengers to your collection.
Thrash your head off for a few bucks.
As a christian, it is hard to find thrash metal music that... well, it's hard to find thrash metal music! August Burns Red is absolutely at the forefront of metal, not only in christian genres, but in secular music as well. If you like Lamb of God, you'll love August Burns Red. The hard-hitting guitar riffs are a lot like Lamb of God, but with their own flavor. I would recommend this album or any other August Burns Red album to anyone, especially if they are looking for a Christian alternative to the secular world.
Best Album of 2007
Honestly, these guys know know how to get a crowd moving! Their music is so well composed to meet those standards. The breakdowns are mouth-watering and the riffs are perfectly fitted to match the vocals. Yeah the breakdowns all sound the same, but they are original and no other band ever came up with these breakdowns. It is a must buy for any heavy metal fan out there.
