RED, currently based in Nashville, is a five-member band who are taking the mainstream music masses by storm. Their sound is a highly energetic blend of Industrial, Heavy Metal, and good ol' Rock-N-Roll, ala GOD.
According to Barnes, the name of the band stands for one's struggle with passion and pain, resulting in an ultimate, redemption. Their songs focus on the struggles of being human in a sometimes God-less world. Their sound is dark, heavy, and brooding but breaks the sound and light barrier. Their lyrics bring forth a ray of light in a dark world.
"Then I'll see your face
I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name
I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole!" -- Pieces
