What do you get when you cross hard rock, Christian lyrics, and conservative politics? The answer, 20 lb Sledgea 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.

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.
