  Unleashed –  Blister
   Unleashed – Blister

Unleashed is the debut album of the Rock Band Blister. The album consist of 11 of their original songs written by band members Peter Khor and Micah Lee. Their songs boldly present some of the views, including the futility of war, hypocrisy, their personal faith in God, temptations, child abuse, self centeredness etc. Some of their lyrics are also rather thought provoking eg. He will be sending red roses to your grave, I?m Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde?disinfect me know. Even their song title are designed to evoke an interest eg. Ded Fly, Like Hell, Dying to Live, 247365. Unleashed is certainly a hard rocking conceptual album.

The band Blister comprises of Micah Lee (lead vocals), Peter Khor (Guitar/vocals), Nick Nathan (bass) and David Khor drums). The band?s memorable performances include playing in the Youth Unlimited concert series in Bangkok, an opening act for Sonic Flood in Chiang Mai, Thailand, at the MRSC 2007 and at Shah Alam Tribute (SALT 2007) concert.

Amazingly, HOPE is a Hokkien album consisting of 9 of her original songs. Charis Tan and Raymond Tan wrote one other song in the album.

There are also excellent worship songs in the album previously recorded in English, among them Come Holy Spirit and Alpha & Omega. Come Holy Spirit made an international presence when it was recorded by Kingsway Music, United Kingdom. The songs By My Bide, Hope and Why are also excellent worship songs.
