King Jonas the Humble Gavin's yearly collection is more of what we expect and want. The 2018 crop seems to have a more of neo-folksy undertone than usual. This isn't a detriment at all as the music is both calming and inspiring.
A Fathers Arms gives us some of the power metal that Gavin is capable of. The Death of Rock'n Roll is an interesting boot to contemporary music industry and it influences most songs on this album which have a distinct straight Rock sound.
All in all a very solid album! Favorite track: A Father's Arms.

Track Name: My Odyssey
My Odyssey

On the crest of the wave
On the point of the blade
It will carry me
My odyssey
On the drift of the wind
On the course of the kin
It will carry me
My odyssey

And out across the sea
I will prowl for the wolves of war
The ocean it calls to me
Gives me something to fight for

Follow in the footsteps
Take a leap of faith and

Ride with the wind
Borne upon the turning tides
My fate will follow me
Trials to begin
Out upon a world so wide
I face my odyssey

On the crest of the wave
On the point of the blade
It will carry me
My odyssey
On the drift of the wind
On the course of the kin
It will carry me
My odyssey

Within the walls of change
Where the voices of all are heard
Under faces of fear they reign
We will hunt them upon their words

Crimson are the rivers
Justice in my hands I

Ride with the wind
Borne upon the turning tides
My fate will follow me
Trials to begin
Out upon a world so wide
I face my odyssey


On the crest of the wave
On the point of the blade
It will carry me
My odyssey
On the drift of the wind
On the course of the kin
It will carry me
My odyssey

On the twist of the road
On the shores ever gold
It will carry me
My odyssey
On the peak of the ridge
On each side of the bridge
It will carry me
My odyssey

Winds on the ocean carry me
Winds on the ocean set me free

Winds on the ocean carry me
From the fading dawn of time
Winds on the ocean set me free
We will flow across the lines
Track Name: When I Swing By
When I Swing By

Well here I go
Spinning silk across the skyline
Follow the flow of every corner, every street
Places to go
But I’m generous with my time
Responsibility can be so bittersweet

And when the clouds are blotting out the sky
I swing upon on the silver lining

And when I swing by
I’ll sling away your troubles
Yeah when I swing by you’ll shine
And I know that life
Can often be a struggle
But you’ll soon be feelin’ fine
When I swing by

Wisdom is earned
In the dark I keep believing
A fallen guide can be like losing part of you
I try to learn
Even when I take a beating
Ambition weaves a web that failure can’t get through

And when the clouds are blotting out the sky
I swing upon on the silver lining

And when I swing by
I’ll sling away your troubles
Yeah when I swing by you’ll shine
And I know that life
Can often be a struggle
But you’ll soon be feelin’ fine
When I swing by

And I know it’s
Not easy
So much is gone
But keep growing
Keep dreaming
And go pass it on

And when I swing by
I’ll sling away your troubles
Yeah when I swing by you’ll shine
And I know that life
Can often be a struggle
But you’ll soon be feelin’ fine
When I swing by

Here I go!
Track Name: Ode To Fury
Ode To Fury

Bellows of pain
And scraping of chains
The echoes they taunt and deceive me
Oceans of blame
And rivers of shame
The fury it never leaves me

Grief in the snow
The winter of woe
Has come here to judge and bereave me
Lock up the rage
It rattles the cage
The fury it never leaves me

Always within
To lurk in the skin
The wounds ever aching so deeply
Try as I may
To hide it away
The fury it never leaves me

Long I’ve suffered the hunger
Long I’ve silenced the cry
Long I’ve fled from the thunder
To ascend
Still I try
To carry the pain
To keep it contained till the end

Pour out the anger and hide it away
Lest it spill to the blameless and lead them to pain
In the steel and the rags I will cover the shame
So the innocent need not be judged in my name

Long I’ve suffered the hunger
Long I’ve silenced the cry
Long I’ve fled from the thunder
To ascend
Still I try
To carry the pain
To keep it contained till the end

Bellows of pain
And scraping of chains
The echoes they taunt and deceive me
Oceans of blame
And rivers of shame
The fury it never leaves me
Track Name: Ascension
Ascension

Wandering hearts, unlikely friends
Facing the fall together
Never to part until the end
Staring into forever

Kin of the tyrant, a dynasty failed
Fog clouds my thoughts in a terrible tale
Drive it away with a swift ocean gale
And I’m finding the source of it all

Cheers of the crowd and the strum of the string
Hearts fill with doting delight when I sing
But onto my throat something sinister clings
And I’m finding the source of it all

Face of forever, the last my kind
Speak through the masks that I’ve hidden behind
Histories hewn in the crypts of my mind
And I’m finding the source of it all

Hammers and fire combine
Out of the bonds
Rising into the divine
Hold back the beyond

Echoes of life
Drink from the well to ascend
Gods have awoken
Echoes of life
Tearing the threads of the veil again

Orders of godhood to wolves in the night
Wicked the sins that I’ve come to put right
A name on the bolt, a face in my sights
And I’m finding the source of it all

Slave to the scar and the torturous tone
Shackled to violence, I’ve hunted my own
Vengeance will grant me the means to atone
And I’m finding the source of it all

Noble of nature and scarlet of scale
Destined to ever be held up and hailed
Fallen from grace with a tear in the veil
And I’m finding the source of it all

Hammers and fire combine
Purging the curse
Rising into the divine
History moves in reverse

Echoes of life
Drink from the well to ascend
Gods are awoken
Echoes of life
Tearing the threads of the veil again

Wandering hearts, unlikely friends
Facing the fall together
Never to part until the end
Staring into forever
Track Name: Setting Sun
Setting Sun

Red stain on the grain of the timber
Obscured in the trees and the towns
There’s a sinister scent on the wind
Our time’s gonna come around
The red sun is going down

There’s a devil inside of us all now
There’s a giant to bring to the ground
He’s takin us out when he falls
Our time’s gonna come around
The red sun is going down

And there’s a price to pay
For all that we have done
Turn my eyes away
And watch the setting sun

Grey ghosts in the smoke of the campfires
They weep and they wail with no sound
They darken the lights and the lamps
Our time’s gonna come around
The red sun is going down

There’s a sting on the gasp of my breath now
There’s a mark on the wrists ever bound
Raw rings in the cycle of death
Our time’s gonna come around
The red sun is going down

And there’s a price to pay
For all that we have done
Turn my eyes away
And watch the setting sun

Now loyalty’s a pistol
And my heart is full of holes
I’m bleeding out my spirit
Breathing out my soul

Our days are all almost over
Times have changed around these parts
There ain’t no more cowboys
Only men with violent hearts

And there’s a price to pay
For all that we have done
Turn my eyes away
And watch the setting sun
Track Name: Deep Blue
Deep Blue

Dive into the ocean’s hope
At the fading of the day
Aquatic kaleidoscopes
See the colours sweep and sway

Down in the deep deep blue
Rebuild my world anew

Waves keep on washing over me
Swim out, swim out
Glide into the open
Cool are the currents of the sea
Swim out, swim out
Deep into the ocean

I carry the means to mend
Amid the fathoms and the foam
This ocean it has no end
And I’m a long long way from home

Down in the deep deep blue
Rebuild my world anew

Waves keep on washing over me
Swim out, swim out
Glide into the open
Cool are the currents of the sea
Swim out, swim out
Deep into the oceans

The silence of the deep
What secrets does it keep?

Waves keep on washing over me
Swim out, swim out
Glide into the open
Cool are the currents of the sea
Swim out, swim out
Deep into the ocean

Wash over me
Out into the open

The silence of the deep
What secrets does it keep?
Track Name: The Death Of Rock 'N' Roll
The Death Of Rock N Roll

Come on down to the city at night
And see how the people cry
Wish away the time
To the rhythm and rhyme
Of a lifeless lullaby

And everybody wants for something
Everybody wants for more
Swimmin’ to the lands
Of the shimmerin’ sands
And we drowned just off the shore

All these voices sound the same
All that changes is the name

And I just wanna hear some music with some soul
So many sheltered shades of grey
I’m not about to mourn the death of rock’n’roll
Cast your broken shackles away

And sing like you mean it
Sing like you’re feeling something

Passing the hours
In the glittering towers
As the valves begin to shred
Toppling down
On top of this town
They scatter on a sea of red

And everybody needs a detour
To get off the same old road
Take a look around
Turn your radio down
It’s there in the lines of code

All these voices blend to one
Add the minus, come to none

And I just wanna hear some music with some soul
So many sheltered shades of grey
I’m not about to mourn the death of rock’n’roll
Cast your broken shackles away

And sing like you mean it
Sing like you’re feeling something

Everybody wants for something
Everybody wants for more
We wanna hear the jack plugs hum again
Everybody wants for more

All these voices sound the same
All that changes is the name

And I just wanna hear some music with some soul
So many sheltered shades of grey
I’m not about to mourn the death of rock’n’roll
Cast your broken shackles away

And sing like you mean it
Sing like you’re feeling something
And I just wanna hear some music with some soul

Everybody wants for something
Everybody wants for more
We wanna hear the jack plugs hum again
Everybody wants for more
Track Name: Starting Over
Starting Over

Step out into the sunlight
Emerging from the past
To breathe the breezy morning air at last

We walk the sunken highways
We wander riven roads
The emptiness becoming our abode

We’re starting over
Build something new
We’ve been a long long time a waiting but we made it through
We’re starting over
Red white & blue
It’s a brand new American dream
For me and you

These West Virginia wildwoods
Across a world of waste
A garden with no fences and no gates

We’re building on the ashes
We’re lighting up the towns
Our reclamation day has come around

We’re starting over
Build something new
We’ve been a long long time a waiting but we made it through
We’re starting over
Red white & blue
It’s a brand new American dream
For me and you

And like a mushroom cloud we rise and spread
Over each road and mountain range
New wars to wrangle and new blood to shed
We know that some things never change...

We’re starting over
Build something new
We’ve been a long long time a waiting but we made it through
We’re starting over
Red white & blue
It’s a brand new American dream
For me and you
Track Name: Savior's Seed
Savior’s Seed

Can I get an amen
An amen now
Brothers and sisters
Can I get an amen
An amen now
Scatter that seed

Bad devils gonna rend your skin now
Wanna pull you down into the mire
But my river’s gonna cleanse your sin now
Safe from the righteous fire

Come brothers and sisters
We’ll give you everything you need
Come brothers and sisters
We’re scattering the savior’s seed

Free faith or by the force of my hand
You’re bringing me a soul to save
Cleanse the filthy from my great divine land
Hellfire upon their graves

Come brothers and sisters
We’ll give you everything you need
Come brothers and sisters
We’re scattering the savior’s seed

Step off the guilty path
And come into this world of mine
The Earth is collapsing down

Can I get an amen
An amen now
Brothers and sisters
Can I get an amen
An amen now
Scatter that seed

Come brothers and sisters
We’ll give you everything you need
Come brothers and sisters
We’re scattering the savior’s seed
Track Name: Machine Hearts
Machine Hearts

Machine Hearts
We never saw

Two fates intertwined
Sorrow in the memories
Rooted, realigned
No cold comfort here for me

A meaning
A feeling
Reason to be
A sickness
In all the secrecy

Every cycle
Same old ending
Give all that I have

And if I don’t have a heart
Then what is broken?
Bonds of time they come apart
We’ve been awoken at the end
And if I don’t have a heart
Then why keep hoping?
We were blinded from the start
Forever frozen my friend

Flowers wilt and fade
Wither into weary walls
Glint of dancing blades
Cry for mercy at the fall

A taste of
Emotion
Forbidden seed
The sting of
The flavour bittersweet

It always ends the same way

And if I don’t have a heart
Then what is broken?
Bonds of time they come apart
We’ve been awoken at the end
And if I don’t have a heart
Then why keep hoping?
We were blinded from the start
Forever frozen my friend

Machine Hearts
We never saw

Can you exist without a reason to?
Can you live without a cause?

Back to the end
Forever starting over
Fractured again
To die another time
Back to the end
A slowing of the motors
Damaged by design

A meaning
A feeling
Reason to be
A longing
For a finality

And if I don’t have a heart
Then what is broken?
Bonds of time they come apart
We’ve been awoken at the end
And if I don’t have a heart
Then why keep hoping?
We were blinded from the start
Forever frozen my friend

And we keep hoping
Forever frozen my friend
Track Name: A Father's Arms
A Father’s Arms

In the arms of the father

In my frozen spirit
Is a chaos quenched in cold
Still smouldering in the ashes of my soul
On the hunt relive it
For the cub must learn his role
To clench all the reckless rage into control

Steel and rags are covering the shame

In the arms of the father
Marks of a history
Old tales on the water
Cold affinity

In the arms of the father
Scars of a past concealed
In the cracks in the armour
Brands of regret beneath the steel

In the steps and stories
These lessons must be learned
I bear the resent of sorrow in return

Gods and titans shudder at the name

In the arms of the father
Marks of a history
Old tales on the water
Cold affinity

In the arms of the father
Scars of a past concealed
In the cracks in the armour
Brands of regret beneath the...

Steel and rags still covering the shame
Gods and titans shudder at the name

Fall to the pain again
Ash on the pyre
Call to the rage again
Borne back to the fire...

I am chaos
I am war
I am fury
And I am yours no more
In the arms of the father
Marks of a history
Old tales on the water
Cold affinity

In the arms of the father
Scars of a past concealed
In the cracks in the armour
Brands of regret beneath the steel

Beneath the steel
Track Name: Embers Rise
Embers Rise

I’ve walked the coiling lines
Set back a hundred times
Winding through worlds of weary kings
(Once more to the first)

Another crumbling hall
Another humbling fall
Once more the mourning bells will ring

But I won’t be kept down
I’ll just keep on rising
Failure ever fading
Growth in every pain

I won’t be kept down
Embers keep igniting
Suns will sink to shade
But always rise again

I’ve been a ghost of flame
A fading fire to claim
Lost in a world of aching shame

But I won’t be kept down
I’ll just keep on rising
Failure ever fading
Growth in every pain

I won’t be kept down
Embers keep igniting
Suns will sink to shade
But always rise again

Look to the sun
Hollow is the curse
Now the end has begun
Once more to the first
Look to the sun
Hollow is the curse
Beaten back, overrun

But I won’t be kept down
I’ll just keep on rising
Failure ever fading
Growth in every pain

I won’t be kept down
Embers keep igniting
Suns will sink to shade
But always rise again
Track Name: Dream Again
Dream Again

I dream of towers in a world consumed
Gold hewn into the stone
The architecture of servitude
Collapsing upon the thrones

Shock to the framework as the shell ignites
Binding the master and the acolyte
Keep running forward at the speed of light
A universe on fire

The coming of age
The stirring of purpose
Within the slumber
Over and over
We will ascend

The coming of age
Disturbing the surface
Connect each other
Over and over
To see the end
And dream again

We dream again
To see the end
We dream again

Prophets of industry revel in greed
The slaves of yesterday are roaming free
Synthetic scream a violent vicious seed
A universe on fire


The coming of age
The stirring of purpose
Within the slumber
Over and over
We will ascend

The coming of age
Disturbing the surface
Connect each other
Over and over
To see the end
And dream again

We dream again
To the see the end
We dream again

We dream again
To see the end
We dream again

Bind the body to the opened mind
Bind the body to the opened mind

I dream of towers in a world consumed
A void in the sentient sky
I dream of fissures across the moon
Leaves of the lotus rise

The coming of age
The stirring of purpose
Within the slumber
Over and over
We will ascend

The coming of age
Disturbing the surface
Connect each other
Over and over
To see the end
And dream again

We dream again
To see the end
We dream again
Track Name: Giants Fall
Giants Fall

Forbidden fields
And empty meadows
I wind and wander

To pierce the seal
And loose the shadow
That pulls me under

Places that should not be disturbed

All that I would cast away
(Watching giants fall)
From myself or from another
Drain the spirit of its colour
Bleeding into grey

Crumble to the ground
A titan coming down

Cycle begins
To atone I will bear the crown
Twins of the curse
On the brow pull the future down

Giants heavy hewn
From the grain of eternity
Piercing the wound
To escape from a destiny

What have I become?

All that I would cast away
(Watching giants fall)
From myself or from another
Drain the spirit of its colour
Bleeding into grey

So crumble to the ground
A titan coming down

All that I would cast away
(Watching giants fall)
In a choking fog I smother
(I’m smothering)
Drain the spirit of its colour
Bleeding into grey

Crumble to the ground
A titan coming down
Track Name: Place In Nature
Place In Nature

Passage of the bold on the open sky
A wild new world around us
Stomp across the earth in the greatest strides
Thrill of the chase has bound us

The time has come
To find your taste for danger
The time has come
To find your place in nature

Bullet and the blade and the blunt collide
Titans’ hides preserve us
Culling of the fierce so the rare survive
Hard is the guiding purpose

There is no beast
Too brutal for you here

The time has come
To find your taste for danger
The time has come
To find your place in nature

The bigger they are
The better the prize
No matter the temper
No matter the size

Go claim your prize!

Fatal wings rise

The time has come
To find your taste for danger
The time has come
To find your place in nature

Find your place in nature
Track Name: London's Bloody Cry
London's Bloody Cry
Track Name: Redemption Blues 2018
Redemption Blues

My time is drawing thinner
I'm just a tired old sinner
No chips left on this shoulder
No pride in growing older

But when your borrowed time is through...
I'll be with you
Redemption blues

No man can truly outlast
All the mistakes of his past
There's no haven here for me
That's safe from my memories
But when your borrowed time is through...

I'll be with you
Redemption blues
I'll be with you
Redemption blues

And justice ain't no lady
She's a twisted, battered whore
She's laying bruised and naked
On a bloodstained wooden floor

Our days are over
Times have changed around these parts
There ain't no more cowboys
Only men with violent hearts

Redemption blues

(My time is drawing thinner)
(I'm just a tired old sinner)
