Fit For A King – Deathgrip

Donn King | December 8, 2016

Definitely a heavy metal band with good screaming. This is the group’s third release and might be a little controversial as the lyrics are pretty dark and delve into the violence and sometimes hopelessness of today’s society. The first track is titled, “Pissed Off” and you might wonder what’s Christian about that but we should be pissed off at the violence in society. I don’t find the language is an issue. My favorite song is ‘Cold Room’ and the best lyric is “I know it’s hard to forgive yourself, but there is life beyond the pain.”
I think that’s what I love about this album, yes, it’s dark and life can be dark but we know we have a light in Jesus. I’m glad that don’t shy away from the tough stuff.
I’m giving them a solid 4 out 5 stars. Definitely check them out.

I've loved music as long as I can remember. I was a DJ and had a morning radio show in college. Back in 11/2006, I gave my life to Christ and was born again and I discovered the many different genres of Christian music. I'm mostly a metal head but I'll listen to it all. I'd say Switchfoot is my favorite band right now.
