On april 17 metal band  Phinehas released their new music video for Crowns. The song is taken from their latest album The Godmachine [review], which was released July 2011 via Red Cord Records. The video can be seen below.

Above the ashes of a dry and thirsty scene, where towers of pride rise and fall, stands Phinehas [FEHN-ee-uhs]. Formed in 2001 on the outskirts of Los Angeles, Phinehas is a band of Christians with the purpose of being a shining light amidst a dark scene. They recognize that a message is only perceived as good as the messenger, so music quality holds an equally important role in their ministry. What initially began as a thrashy hardcore band has flourished into a brand of metal that not many can emulate.

Phinehas has never lost momentum. Their intense and passionate live show is a hit everywhere. Largely influenced by the music of bands like As I Lay Dying, Killswitch Engage, and Van Halen, Phinehas is a band that loves fast beats and guitar solos while never forgetting their roots by weaving in powerful breakdowns.

Lyrics: ‘Crown’

Draw your depiction
Stars become scars in the palm of your hand bridged by blood
Your blood paints the paragon of unrequited love
Do you remember pain followed by reassurance and the light shining through
Bearing the poise of a redeemer choking the shadows defeating death

Providence: laid out before us
A father’s arms reaching as
The nations will hear a new song
As we’re lead to the water
The nations will hear a new song
As we’re lead to the water

Give us discernment
Doors that glow at the sound of forerunners’ words
We are empty until you sit at the throne of our hearts
Break us free; unshackled from our dire condition
We have hope

Kings of earth bow down lose your crowns
Kings of earth bow down lose your crowns
Bow

The nations will hear a new song
As we’re lead to the water
The nations will hear a new song… of rebirth
