The Color of Valor Allentown, Pennsylvania

Hard hitting Pennsylvania metalcore act, The Color of Valor, is a true gem in a tired scene. Most bands are content hashing out the same old riffs and chord progressions but not TCOV. Each song has distinct characteristics that set them apart without jumping ship. Instead of following the verse-chorus-verse-chorus pattern, these guys have flipped traditional song structure on its head. ... more

Track Name: Battlegrounds
This love will move hearts and heal our broken backs.
Today a new day dawns within this horrid nightmare.

Look strong, unafraid in the face [of the] enemy.
Withdraw, retreat, fall back, [on the] verge of giving in.
Hold fast, you must be diligent in this fight.
Oh God, everywhere, there is blood on the ground.

Oh God!

Oh my God, my God, Now this will be our last fight.
What is this fighting for?
We're on the same side and we sing the same songs.
We've been to hell and back.
The struggle, The triumph, The horror, The bloody horror.

Where do we stand here at the edge of devotion?
What is left when daylight decays?
Lets go back to that hallowed day.
Track Name: Leviathan
Misguided, what has led me down this road?
Halfhearted, tearing me from the car.

So now, I lift this weight from my chest.
I feel I can breathe again.
Inside my heart, I know your here with me
watching over everything.

In truth, I never could surpass you.
(You cast a blinding light)

We were fools, just jesters to the king.
His spurs in our sides.

Bow down on your knees and pray
for forgiveness.
For forgiveness, for everything you've become,
this father failed by his son.

I was a lost soul
and you were always there.
You were there to guide me.
If only I was listening.
I'll always look back on that day.
