Live For Today Videos Posted

for today2010

Since I havent posted much about metal lately, here are a couple of professionally shot videos from For Today at their CD release show in St. Paul Minnesota. The band released their monumental album entitled Devastator this week, and my opinion is that it is the best thing they have done in their already amazing career.

For Today, Sleeping Giant, and a handful of bands like them are reviving a movement that started back in the 90s of hardcore bands that speak blatantly and honestly about their faith. The purpose of the live shows are to create a place of worship like none found in todays churches. I have posted the lyrics for the songs below in the hopes that you are able to understand this a little better and see that God can use any music style to draw hearts towards Him. Enjoy!

Devastator
Hell, fear me. I am the one that will bring you down.
And when you fall, feel me. You’ll see my face on the battleground.
Hell, fear me. I am the one that will bring you down.
And when you fall, feel me. You’ll see my face on the battleground.

Let my name be feared at the gates of hell, as I exalt the Savior.
The One that died to buy my victory, and gave me a new name.
Let my name be feared at the gates of hell, as I exalt the Savior.
In the name of the Holy One of God,
I will cast you down at the foot of the cross He hung from.
I will stand behind my Savior, as He burns your kingdom down.
And I will see you on your knees before the King of Kings.
You will lose your throne to the chosen ones. The chosen ones will rise.

Tear it to the ground! This is the army we’ve been waiting for.
Tear it to the ground! We will storm the gates of hell and we will…
tear it to the ground! We stand behind the one that conquered death.
Tear it to the ground! And we will stand when there is nothing left.
Tear it to the ground! Tear it to the ground!

Justice! Justice! Justice! God, bring justice!
Justice! We will come against the bondage of hell.
Justice! And we will take back what’s taken from us.
Justice! This is our right as heirs to dominion. God, bring justice!

This war will end.

I am the one that will bring you down.
And when you fall, feel me. You’ll see my face on the battleground.

Hell, fear me. I am the one that will bring you down.
And when you fall, feel me. You’ll see my face on the battleground.

Seraphim
Burn, and let the whole world see! You were made to burn.
…and let the whole world see! You were made to burn.
…and let the whole world see! You were made to burn.

I see an old breed of prophet arising, speaking as voices from another age;
set ablaze with the flame of the Spirit of God, and sent from before the throne.
…sent from before the throne.
We are sent from before the throne to stand up and speak out,
and let hell tremble when they hear us say,
“We are the burning ones, and we will not be contained!”
“We are the burning ones, and we will not be contained!” Oh…

Burning ones, arise! Come forth!

Oh take your flame, ignite the world.
We are the only hope for a hopeless world to see the face of the living God.
Oh take your flame, ignite the world.
Under the name above all names, we declare that the glorious One lives.
Take your flame, ignite the world. Take your flame, ignite the world!
Take your flame, ignite the world. Take your flame, ignite the world!

Come to the throne! Come to the throne!
You were made to burn and let the whole world see!
Burn, and let the whole world see. Burn, and let the whole world see.

Oh take your flame, ignite the world! Oh take your flame, ignite the world!
…ignite the world! Take your flame, ignite the world! Take your flame, ignite the
world! Take your flame, ignite the world! Take your flame, ignite the world!
