Passion-Filled Metal | Posted October 07, 2016
Fit For a King is one of the premier Christian metal bands in today's music industry. The boys always have a fun sound with a serious message, and this album is no different. Even those who are not fans of the music will probably appreciate the lyrics.

The End's Beginning leads well into the lead single Pissed Off. Growling vocals and crunching guitars will greet you from the get-go, and frustration is apparent. The song is ultimately about terrorism and that we need to stop it before it destroys our society. Dead Memories (featuring Jake Luhrs) is another aggressive track about the death of someone's spirit when someone they love leaves them, screaming "Would you even notice if my world was falling apart?"

The songs continue with dark themes in Cold Room, which is based a fan's experience with the death of a child, specifically through abortion. It has a creepy guitar background that fits the topic very well. Disease is about needing to die to live, despite our fight for life: "To save us, we must take us/We must induce all/We must die."

Shadows and Echos is a message to Christians to quit being passive and start actively living for Jesus in an unashamed manner. "Would you tell me about your heart/Won't you tell me just what that means" says the chorus, and I agree. The world needs what we have, and deep down they want to hear it.

The album falls off a bit for a couple tracks with More Than Nameless and We Are All Lost, despite being still enjoyable, but picks up again with Unclaimed, Unloved. Levi Benton hops on for my favorite track Stacking Bodies. It's another dark track, this time with gruesome imagery. It describes the devil fighting for control of our souls and lives, winning a majority of the time to add to his pile of stinking bodies. The title track closes out the album very well: "You're in a deathgrip/Death will know my name!/You're at world's end/I will be the last one standing."

I personally think this is Fit For a King's best album to date, an impressive accomplishment. Very few hiccups and straight-up solid metal that even those who are not metal fans will appreciate. Screaming has rarely sounded so good.
