The Lamb Has Conquered release from Vineyard Records UK, features a magnificent selection of the best new worship songs birthed and sung in Mercy Vineyard, Southampton.
All songs are penned by writers Mike & Jamie Pearson and Kate Cooke, and put to music by a brilliant group of UK musicians and worship leaders. The songs focus on the redemptive power of the incarnate Jesus raised to life for us. There is a strong declaration of the love and sacrifice of Jesus through songs which are sometimes very personal and reflective, and other times powerful and victorious. These ÌÎå«ÌÎå´ÌÎå«Ì´å¢sung prayers are dynamically, passionately and sensitively supported musically.
The strong line up of fresh new material features Kate Cooke (Love Divine), Sam Lane (Beautiful, All From You), Marc James (Surrender, Verra Cruz), Nigel Hemming (Great Big God, Hungry), Henry Cross (All From You, Verra Cruz), and producer and drummer Jimmy Cooke (Beautiful, Verra Cruz), amongst other excellent musicians. The album was mixed at Chapel Lane by Sam Gibson (Delirious, Hillsong United, Newsboys).
Opening with the battle cry, The Lamb Has Conquered, the album sets out at the very beginning the powerful message that our war has already been won, and proclaims who God is and what He did on the cross. The album then moves into a powerful acknowledgment of the power of the Lamb ending with the anthemic, Worthy Is The Lamb'.
The Lamb Has Conquered offers 12 dynamic new worship songs of truth, courage, empowerment and hope for believers worldwide.
Review from christianitymagazine.co.uk
Given this album's title and artwork, I had resigned myself to reviewing another youth-orientated generic rock album filled with Hillsong-esque guitar anthems. Instead I found an intimate recording of 12 songs written and performed by three different Vineyard worship leaders, with a variety of slow and more uptempo tracks.
Lyrically, there is a focus on the cross and the sacrifice of Jesus, which gives the album coherence and purpose. Standout tracks would be On the Wooden Cross' and Move in our Lives'. This is a refreshing album for anyone bored with the current church music scene and in need of something authentic.
