About The Order Of Elijah:
The world is ate up. One of the most commonly asked questions to The Order Of Elijah is “Are you a religious band.” While religion can introduce people to experience or express love and compassion, it is also guilty of being a primary progress for hate, war, and judgment. There is an over-obvious corruption that many churches and cultures have adapted to the words of Jesus Christ. When Shannon Low (vocalist) and Bryan Cox (guitarist) originally formed The Order Of Elijah in 2009, they began with a vision to bring awareness and express some unspoken facts on this issue. After being shunned by many peers, churches, and religious communities for the message they bring, The Order Of Elijah has remained relentless and aggressively answered to every aspect with an unashamed backhand to the face. The Order is passionate about the life of Christ, but feels that many modern day religious leaders are easily compared to Biblical Pharisees.
“The ‘turn-or-burn’ message is garbage. It infects the mind in such an ugly and forceful way. I believe God wants us to be tolerant, open-minded to evolve with modern culture, and somehow learn to have some love in this day in age.” -Shannon Low
The Order Of Elijah is a 4 piece band based out of SW Missouri. After releasing their 2013 album Dethrone, The Order began touring the midwest and west coast. The single “New Line of Defense” has been featured on many media outlets worldwide. After stepping away from Rottweiler Records the band has hit the ground running. Preparing their sophomore album, entitled War at Heart, is set to be released this summer on Luxor Records. The band’s music consists of massive guitar assaults & guttural screams of power entwined with tenacious rhythms, dynamically placed between soul pounding breakdowns.
