  • My new all-time favourite band is "Wolves at the Gate" (WATG), a hardcore rock alternative (sometimes screamo) band out of Cedarville, Ohio and is made up of band members: Steve Cobucci, Colin Jones, Jeremy Steckel, Ben Summers, and Ben Millhouse.

    What I love most about them is:
    1) They rock hard, and
    2) Their mission is to "show the incredible love of God to every person we come in contact with."

    WATG strongly believes that "the salvation message of the Gospel is free to everyone, and our primary purpose on this earth is to spread that message to everyone we meet."

    To this end, I find their music and their lyrics to be amongst the most powerful and hard rocking I've heard in quite some years... hence, their being my new number one fave band.

    This personal piece is a homage of sorts to them, with the lyrics to one of their songs inserted into the work.
    The song is "Through the Night" and comes from their new 2012 album, "Captors."

    LYRICS:
    "I've seen the road and it's snares
    I bore the load though it wears
    I've heard your curses and taunts and yet it won't stop me
    I've heard your curses and slights and still it won't stop me
    Slept through the coldest of nights
    From ever calling You “king”
    Or hide the Gospel we bring
    It's burning bright in my eyes
    Come grow, come grow and light up the skies

    We're hungry, tired, and sick
    Faced with resistance on every end (in You we hide)
    I've felt the scorn you inflict
    Attack this mission I will defend
    Still onward we will ride
    We will ride
    Onward we will ride
    Forward with no end in sight
    In You we shall hide
    Our hope is found in the light

    Tonight I rest, I rest in peace
    Your will is greater than mine
    And I haven't a thirst for wealth or man's empty praise
    For the glory is Thine
    And I haven't a want of fame in this world to claim at all

    We will ride
    We will face the world
    We will ride
    We will face the world

    We're dirty, restless, and sore
    But count it joy to be found worthy (against this test)
    Endless assaults to endure
    Upon our bodies with no worry
    For one day I'll have rest
    I've seen the road and it's snares
    I bore the load though it wears
    I've heard your curses and slights and yet it won't stop me
    And yet it won't stop me

    Tonight I rest, I rest in peace
    Your will is greater than mine
    And I haven't a thirst for wealth or man's empty praise
    For the glory is Thine
    And I haven't a want of fame in this world to claim
    When the vile take aim on my flesh I'll call Your name

    I've seen the road and it won't stop me
    With Your strength bestowed upon me freely
    And Your grace has flowed in us completely
    Now let us cut through the night so that in me they would see light
    I've seen the road and it won't stop me
    No end in sight as far as I see
    And I'll bear the weight of the victim
    Onward we ride till kingdom come
    I've seen the road and it won't stop me
    No end in sight as far as I see"

    I had a lot of fun working on this piece and I hope to do some more inspired by their music and message.
