Attera Obscurum” Track Lyrics:

When you crush the darkness you are filled with light

Protest is in your eyes and holy fire is in your soul

Tell everyone about the cups of God’s anger

Be insane for Christ always!

Breaking the darkness!

Your enemies turned your faith upside down

Their souls are possessed by anguished darkness

But you are stronger and can overcome everything

Breaking the darkness, insane for Christ!

Breaking the darkness!

Cross is on your chest, holiness in your soul

Life is in your mind, cold are your hands

You will overcome your fears

You are not alone!

Breaking the darkness!

Cross is on your chest, holiness in your soul

Life is in your mind, cold are your hands

You will overcome your fears

You are not alone!

Metal for a Dark World!

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
