Skillet is back with their highly anticipated album, Dominion, available everywhere now! This release is sure to please both long time and newer fans of the band with its hard-hitting heavy rock and soaring vocal performances while the lyrics speak of overcoming the evils of this world, standing strong in your faith and keeping hope alive through the most difficult times.
“Surviving The Game” sets the tone for the album with an anthem about being able to remain steadfast in the face of whatever life throws at you; rising above with the promise found in Romans 8:37 that we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.
Title track “Dominion” is a force to be reckoned with as it boldly proclaims a rebellion against the enemy’s attacks and calling to mind that we serve an everlasting King who will defeat the darkness threatening to overtake His people.
The following song, “Valley Of Death”, is a powerful, piano driven ballad that finds someone who is dealing with the kind of grief and sorrow that cuts to the core and tests the limits of your faith. Clinging to the belief that our Savior will not leave us alone no matter what we must walk through, while it’s still a struggle, somewhere there will always be a glimmer of hope to guide you.
“Refuge” is a personal favorite for sure. I love the way the lyrics remind us that our Heavenly Father is always there and a safe place to rest. We can be fully honest with God about everything we are experiencing & trust that He will carry us.
“Ignite” will definitely spur on listeners to shine with the light of Jesus while holding tight to what they believe and not conform to the pressures of the world around them.
As a whole, Dominion is a timely album jam-packed with music that plays as a soundtrack to life as we navigate the current state of the world. Longtime fans will be pleased to hear some “old school” Skillet styles combined with the fresh sounds on this record . There’s no doubt that the message of standing defiant against many of the cultural norms that are becoming increasingly challenging resonates on a deep level all while keeping a firm focus on the loving power of God.
