Burning Bright Like A Fire | Posted March 31, 2014
There aren't too many solo artists on the Christian rock charts these days. But Devin Williams is making his ascent to the top with a sound that boasts influences from several top Christian rockers from RED to Decyfer Down to many other bands known for their catchy choruses and crunchy guitars.

In other words, Devin Williams has a sound that fits right in with Christian rock right now, with soaring guitar solos, fierce openers, choruses destined to get stuck in your head, lyrics that speak to the human struggle, and even the obligatory softer moments to balance out the chaos. And furthermore, everything he does, he does well.

Lead single "I Will Overcome" exemplifies the album's harder-edged strengths. Singing over defeating out sinful nature, the song checks all the right boxes for chart success and does it while keeping everything interesting. "Here For You" and "Greater Than Fame" do excellent jobs at tackling the slower angles. With themes of comfort and the rewards of Christ, there's a lot of depth to draw from in these musical wells.

"Like A Fire" is another album highlight singing "you can't keep this light from burning." Proclaiming our desire to never abandon the truth but rather have it light up the world, it's a rousing rocker calling us to action. The album's themes are familiar territory for rock music, but they blend well. Be it our call to live for Christ, comforting the sorrowful, or overcoming our sin, Destruction of Kings tackles several aspect of the Christian walk in a thoughtful and meaningful work of art.

Closing Thoughts:
Devin Williams knows what works in Christian rock and incorporates it all into his latest release. There's much to love here and most of the tracks seem destined for high chart peaks. There's nothing here that promises to reinvent anything in the genre, but Williams has the rock voice to drive the music home regardless. If you're into any of the popular Christian rock acts out now, give Devin Williams a listen.
