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!

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

My Epic performing their last final show before COVID-19

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
