This is for you guys out there who love your Christian hardcore. So you may be saying "Who the hell is Set Apart"? Set Apart was the other Christian hardcore band in South Florida, the previous being Strongarm. Very nice guys who, unlike many Christian bands and followers, supported all bands, not just the Christian ones. These tracks were from a split CD with Tampa's Chalice and while the recording is not incredible, the songs are good. Very reminiscent of Strongarm's sound, in that its technical and melodic but still moshy. Make sure to check out track 4 "Proven Wrong" which bears a VERY strong resemblance to Strongarm's "Stand Together". Again, I am not a big fan of Christian hardcore but there are the few bands that stood out. These guys eventually broke up and the singer, Jason, started Glasseater. The band's last bass player, Anthony, would also join Glasseater.
