Advent is a Christian metalcore band that formed in 2006 after the dissolution of melodic hardcore band Beloved. They are signed to Solid State Records and have currently released two full lengths and two EPs. They are currently gearing up for their next release, hopefully in mid-2011.
The band says of themselves, "We arenít ashamed of our faith or trying to weasel around anything to downplay it. Love someone with all your heart and you donít have to be the loudest person on your soap box, screaming. Sometimes itís all about just doing simple things to love another person, like pulling over to the side of the road to help someone who has a flat tire. In a similar way, we want the music to speak for us first and foremost, because if you music doesnít demand respect, then no one will care one bit about what you have to say."
