Great CD, especially Prodigal. Makes me miss the old Heavy Metal days.

From: Jeff Brown Date: February 14, 2003 at 15:18
I used to know these guys! Back in the old Harvest Ministry days...I would love to get my hands on a copy!

From: Jeremiah Date: October 27, 2003 at 21:15
Yeah, great band! The guitar player, George Favazza, just happens to be my boss!!!!!!! I go to church with him and his brother Rich Favazza(the drummer)! Great guys. I'm currently trying to convince them to do a reunion concert. They're not sure though. They don't think anyone would come to it!!!! Now isn't that crazy!!!!!

From: George Date: October 27, 2003 at 21:45
These guys put a lot of hard work into this project its to bad the lable wouldn't push it .R.E.X. never even gave these guys 1 penny in royalties And I should know I wrote some of the music.

From: Casey Date: November 9, 2003 at 18:52
The songs were solid and the talent was there. I loved this release and think it sucks that R.E.X. didn't know what they were doing with most of their artists. Mercy Rule, you guys were among my faves, for sure. Is it possible for you to re-release Overruled yourselves and maybe add some rare demos or live stuff? Please do. You guys have more fans out here than you may think. Are any of you guys still doing music? God bless.

From: metalhead1 Date: January 7, 2004 at 3:28
I've got this on tape, and it is a classic!!!! I never got much past the first 2 songs though, as I love them both! They are going through my head as I type. How can I get in touch with these guys? I'd love to chat about music or religion or just anything.

From: Cotton C. Lover Date: September 1, 2004 at 14:42
Is this the same band that was from Lincoln, Nebraska?

From: Jeff Brown Date: September 17, 2004 at 2:40
I went to Church with these guys back in the 80's. I was influenced and inspired by this group in my own Music aspirations. I miss the old days, but I would love to see an independent release of the old songs. Come on guys! Put the songs on MP3 and share your music with us again! Jeff Brown-(The former singer of 'FAITH')
