Another awesome track. So pumped to hear the whole album. My only gripe is the lyrics, it's not that they're bad, they're just... REALLY Christian xD. I hope we see some variety there rather than every song being a song about how great God is.

Haha this is a true statement. Plus I think if I wasn't a christian I'd rather listen to Christian bands than bands with terrible lyrics. Like emmure or some shit.

Oh for sure, I'll take these over horrendous lyrics from bands like emmure any day, I just can't really relate to these lyrics is all.

But really, vocals are great, music is great, and in the end the lyrics won't hurt the album for me at all. This will most likely be a 4.0 or a 4.5 for me.

Can't wait for the album. Really glad Solid State is finally signing some solid(pun intended) acts. The Overseer and Wolves should make some great additions to an already great label.

"they are a christian band so..."

Doesn't mean that they have to explicitly base all of their lyrics on the Christian faith to the extreme extent displayed here. Answer the question.

To the extreme? Every Christian band other than As I Lay Dying and Demon Hunter base EVERY song around their faith. If you don't like it, don't listen to it. No reason to be ignorant about it.

Havey with metal you usually get explicit satanic or explicit christian. Deal with it and enjoy the MUSIC.

I suppose so, but a lot of christian metal bands are pretty explicitly christian in the way they bring about their message, at least the ones i know of(underoath, for today, mychildren mybride, demon hunter, to name a few)

Did you even read my post?
"Doesn't mean that they have to explicitly base all of their lyrics on the Christian faith to the extreme extent displayed here."

I understand that all Christian bands will have lyrics influenced by their faith, but that doesn't mean that they have to explicitly state their beliefs.

If you don't like it, don't listen to it. No reason to be ignorant about it.


I'm going to listen to it either way, so no thanks. And please, feel free to point out where I was being ignorant. I just wanted to know whether or not all of their lyrics are akin to these.

Deal with it and enjoy the MUSIC.

Thank you, I will.

My 3 favorite up-and-coming bands for sure, they're all fucking great.

Anyway, just listened to the previews on iTunes, they're all pretty long so I got a good feel for each song, and THEY'RE ALL AWESOME. July 3rd why you no here yet.

Love this track.. I'm not religious so to me songs about god are just more mythical song topics and it doesn't bother me one bit. I get that to Christians the songs carry weight and added depth and can allow them to say "amen" a lot (stereotypical lol), but to me it's like Amon Amarth going on about Viking mythology all the time I don't give a shit about Viking mythology either though I enjoy the music and the lyrical content because to me it's just a story. Like in this song all this talk of kings and nations falling under his power, at first I thought it was some lyrical journey through some kind of medieval world not about god but that's fine with me.

Not trying to be a dick but comparing Christianity 'mythology' to Viking mythology is fucking stupid as hell and very wrong at
the same time

christian rock/hardcore/whatever is the same for me as any other kind of music. Not sure why it's a big deal.
