Mukala reminds me of an old computer game that I played when I was a teacher, Mancala. Yet, Mukala is a Christian group that blends electronic dance with a mix of pop and rock. Mukala is led by singer and keyboardist Dan Muckala, guitarist Alex Nifong, and drummer Jason Collum. The lyrics of Atrocity is based upon a secret sin that results in a series of bad choices detailed in James 1:13-15.
The woman answered, I have no husband. Jesus said to her, You have spoken truly in saying, I have no husband. 18 For you have had five husbands, and the man you are now living with is not your husband. In this you have spoken truly, John 4:17-18.
While the context of Atrocity is unclear, there are traces of the classic song by the Police Roxanne. Apparently, a Christian leader that bandmembers knew ends up becoming an adult entertainer at a strip club. Mukala is so shocked that Dan wonders how this individual can sleep at night. Yet, like the prodigal son, until someone reaches the bottom of the barrel, atrocities will continue today.
