Texas metalers Fit for a King have dropped a fresh new single for us, “Pissed Off.” The song comes from their upcoming album, Deathgrip, scheduled for release on Oct. 7. The song was inspired by the Nov. 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris. Vocalist Ryan Kirby wrote in about the song:

“The lyrics were written while we were playing Paris four nights after the attack on the Bataclan. Seeing the way fear had torn apart a beautiful city that I had always dreamed of visiting really pissed me off. This song is a strong message about being absolutely fed up with all the violence and killing in the world and that our best way to fight this terror is to not live in fear.”

The album will be released through Solid State Records. Preorders are available.

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.
