1. Pillar is comprised of Rob Beckley (vocals), Lester Estelle Jr.(drums), Noah Henson (guitar), and Michael "Kalel" Wittig (bass). These Christian rockers with an alt-metal edge have been honing their infectious sound since 1998 while attending Ft. Hays State University in northwestern Kansas. A deal with Flicker was inked in 2000 after the band's self-released debut, Metamorphosis, impressed the label. Within months, Pillar followed things up with Above. Their first single, "Open Your Eyes," was popular on the college charts, earning Above nearly 60,000 in sales.
