My 10 Favorite Wolves At The Gate Songs

Apr 16, 2015

Wolves At The Gate is becoming one of my favorite Christian metal bands.  They are one of a kind and completely original.  You know them right when you hear them.  Nick Detty is an awesome front man too!  His screams are sick and he gives his all when playing live!  Couple that with Steve Cobucci’s (guitarist) clean vocals and they have an amazing way of bringing the gospel to you through metal music.  Here are my 10 favorite songs of theirs from the 2 studio albums they’ve released.  And as always I’ll include some of my favorite lyrics for each.

10. Wild Heart, VxV

Favorite Lyrics

“Waist deep in the ocean’s sleep without a thought or realization of my dying need.  (I cannot) can’t keep what I didn’t reap, for I see justice coming swiftly for every thought and deed.”

9. Morning Star, Captors

Favorite Lyrics

“The earth is screaming against its bondage of decay.  Creation eager for the coming new day.  My lungs are breathing stealing every single breath.  Not my soul, but my body is put to death.”

8. Rest, VxV

Favorite Lyrics

“May I never lose the heart of the restless, when my eyes they close in death and when my body is breathless.  May I never lose the heart of a vagrant, when I’m buried in the depths and when my body is vacant.”

7. Amnesty, Captors

Favorite Lyrics

“I feel the life His wounds impart.  No longer prisoned I'll lay.  I feel the Savior in my heart.  Nothing will take that away.”

6. Dust To Dust, VxV

Favorite Lyrics

“Oh how lost I would be if my faith unwound, and I lost the Lord!  Oh how empty my soul would ever be found if I gained the world!”

5. Slaves, Captors

Favorite Lyrics

“I couldn't see.  I should have known.  This peace abounds at my master's home.  Now my heart be still or these feet will fall.  All for the will of the Master's call.”

4. Dead Man, Captors

Favorite Lyrics

“So just at the right time when we were dead in our sins, You took this heart of mine and gave me life again.  You gave me life again.  This is where I begin.”

3. The Harvest, Captors

Favorite Lyrics

“If only I can see things through Your eyes!  Ignite in me a burning flame!  Forsaken life I count it as loss for the sake of the cross!”

2. The Bird And The Snake, VxV

The meaning behind this song is powerful.  It shows just how powerful the great deceiver is.  Steve Cobucci explained this song by saying, “’The Bird And The Snake’ is another song with layers and depth.  It tells the story of a barter between a hungry bird and a cunning snake, where the snake trades a worm for feathers. The bird trades so many feathers that he is rendered unable to fly away from the snake, thus becoming his prey." (solidstaterecords.com)

Favorite Lyric

“Fool don’t you see, you haven’t a choice.  No one will listen, hear out your voice.  You’re lost and accursed (lost and accursed).  You’re dying of thirst (dying of thirst).  Stop with your fighting, I’m all you’ve got.  None hear your crying.  You’re hooked and caught.  Was three, now it’s six (was three, now it’s six).  Come get your fix (come get your fix).”

1. Wake Up, VxV

This song is literally a wakeup call to Christians.  So many Christians are scared to evangelize and let people know where they stand.  It’s time to be bold and spread the message!  Here are the full lyrics to this powerful and driving song!

Wake up! Wake up!

The wolves are biting.
The wolves are clawing and snatching up the sheep.
For if we speak without the truth upon our lips,
We're giving in and we’re falling fast asleep.

Creating more prodigals, jaded and worn.
Creating more prodigals, jaded and worn.

We organize and strategize.
Yet we're keeping our mouths shut.
(Keeping our mouths shut)
For we are actors without action,
When the cost factors no reaction.
We hide under roof and steeple,
'Cuz we're afraid of broken people.

The wolves are biting,
The wolves are clawing and snatching up the sheep.
For if we speak without the truth upon our lips,
We're giving in and we’re falling fast asleep.

Wake up! Wake up!

So if faith comes by hearing,
Why not speaking by preaching?
Though my fear is the half-truths
That the many are teaching.

The world is lining you up and bids you to come,
To live on the edge till your heart it is numb.
Lining you up and bids you farewell,
To look like the righteous but still live like hell.

Are we fighting?
Are we fighting or are we asleep?
Are we dying?
Are we dying to aid the sheep?

We compromise in our own eyes,
Yet we're keeping our mouths shut.
(Keeping our mouths shut)
We are actors without action,
When the cost factors no reaction.
We hide under roof and steeple,
'Cuz we're afraid of broken people.

The wolves are biting,
The wolves are clawing and snatching up the sheep.
For if we speak without the truth upon our lips,
We're giving in and we’re falling fast asleep.

So are we crying?
So are we crying to all the lost and dead?
Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away
The sins of the whole world by his blood shed.

Making straight the way,
The way of the Lord.
Making straight the way,
The way of the Lord.

“All of your guilt and all of the wrath of God against you is transferred to Him and he legally bears it away. Do you believe that Jesus Christ really is willing? That you have a sin bearer that takes away all sin, past, present and future!”

Conclusion

These are my 10 favorite songs by Wolves At The Gate.  These guys are on fire for God and their mission is to spread the Good News to the lost and hurting people.  God bless them!  They are a great role model for the youth and adults too!
