20 LB SLEDGE (AlfonZo Rachel of ZoNation Interview)
The Relevant Christian Magazine ^ | 4/30/31 | Karmann Powell

Posted on 05/04/2014 9:33:24 AM PDT by OneVike

What do you get when you cross hard rock, Christian lyrics, and conservative politics? The answer, “20 lb Sledge”–a southern California band that describes their music as a “wave after wave of sonic body blows, juicy melodies and lyrics, barkin’ with a bite of sharp-toothed defense of faith and patriotism.”

20 lb Sledge is the brain child of drummer, Alfonzo Rachel. In 2008, he realized he needed Christ and Christ needed to be at the center of his life. He felt like it took 20 pound sledge hammer to break down the wall of pride standing between him and Christ. That realization gave him the name of the band.

The band recently released their first CD, Divine Battery, whose song of the same name is currently climbing the Christian internet radio charts. 20 lb Sledge band member, K. Martin Wade, plays bass, is a Christian, and a full-spectrum conservative. Eli Chatman, the front-man, is an apolitical Christian who looks for candidates whose beliefs align with the Ten

Commandments. The lead guitarist, Shawn Taylor, is a pro-life, 2nd Amendment supporting, and traditional marriage kind of Catholic. Alfonzo Rachel is the drummer, songwriter, and the main subject of this article.

Alfonzo has been doing political rants against the left for almost 5 years, and he has quite a following here on Freerepublic, along with being a freeper himself. This is a great interview by the music editor of the TRC magazine, Karmann Powell. Karmann's interview gets into the reason AlfonZo became a conservative and what type of music his Christian band plays.

Along with the interview of Zo, there are some articles I wrote for TRC magazine. I have already plugged them with threads. However if you are so inclined to want to read them, here are the links to my articles.

Forgive me if I do not stick around for the discussion, but I have things I need to get done. So I will check in from time to time to reply to any comments requiring a response.

Nice! Love Zo. Didn’t know he was a Freeper. I shudder to think of some of the things he (and our other melanin-enhanced Freeper brethren) must read here these days.
