Hear What Happens On The Third Day of Christmas

Third Day are a Christian rock group from Atlanta who have been spreading their message since the early 1990's. Their sincerity is as true as their soaring riffs which means that they have appeal for both religious and southern rock music audiences. Their novel approach has led to a Christmas album, in 2006's 'Christmas Offerings', that plays to a sacred audience while affording their fans the chance to headbang along in unison. The band's first contact with the season came at the turn of the century however with the 2000 festive collection 'Essential Energy Christmas' containing Third Day's rendition of the old carol 'O Come O Come Emmanuel'.

In 2002 the Christian quintet contributed a couple of new Christmas tracks to different compilations. 'Do You Hear What I Hear?' found its way onto the inaugural 'Wow Christmas' (subtitled 'Red') collection. The band would return to this carol for their 2006 album but on that occasion the version that appeared was taken from a live recording. Third Day's other 2002 Christmas song 'Manger Throne' would feature on the contemporary Christian artist’s compilation 'City on a Hill: It's Christmas Time' which was the third on the ongoing 'City on a Hill' series. Joining Third Day on 'Manger Throne' were singers Derri Daugherty and Julie Miller. Two years later in 2004 the band lent their increasingly popular version of 'O Come O Come Emmanuel' to the 'K-LOVE Christmas Collection'. The very same song resurfaced on 'WOW Christmas: Green' the following year but curiously did not make the cut for the band's Christmas LP 'Christmas Offerings'.

'Christmas Offerings' was a charming collection of studio and live recordings that came out in time for Christmas 2006. The 13-track album mixed old and new festive compositions and were produced in Third Day's patented up-tempo rock style with Mac Powell's gravelly voice naturally taking centre stage. While albums such as these that combine live and studio recordings can often feel a little uneven some patience does enhance the experience this time and you can appreciate what Third Day had in mind. For the most part it is carols all the way but Third Day give so much of themselves that there are subtle new insights. An example is the live version of 'Silent Night' which benefits from impromptu audience interaction that would be impossible to recreate in a studio environment. Among the highlights includes the album's final track and original number 'Merry Christmas' written about the harrowing process involved in adopting a child which thankfully has a heart-warming ending.

Such is 'Christmas Offerings' legacy that several of its tracks have turned up on compilations over the years including 'Angels We Have Heard on High' on 2010's 'The Essential Christmas Collection', 'Born in Bethlehem' on 2011's 'WOW Christmas' and 'The First Noel' on 'Do You Hear What I Hear?: Songs Of Christmas' which came out in 2012.
