"Blood Diamonds" is the long awaited debut from Los Angeles hardcore band Dangerous Minds. Musically forceful and lyrically steadfast about the band’s convictions, Blood Diamonds combines heavy hardcore grooves with complex metalcore stop-start rhythm structures. Dangerous Minds’ innovative brand of hardcore stands on the shoulders of Terror and Sleeping Giant, which is befitting since the band was founded by Dynasty guitarist Marcel Muniz.

Dangerous Minds features Marcel Muniz (vocals), Jeremy Tudon (guitar), Michael Massey (guitar), Alan Litrell (bass) and Danny Perez (drums).

Track Name: Introducing
Introducing the king of kings
Second to none who is like You risen one

He's the first and the last no beginning no end
Eternally true outlasting every worldly trend
Supremely legit a bloody cross will contest
That every knee will bow and every tongue will confess

You are lord
And You’re worthy to be praised. Do it.

You conquered the grave bringing hell to its knees
Just to come to my rescue me at these raging seas
Track Name: Death Defeaters (feat. Joel Muniz from Dynasty)
You laid death in his grave
The grave despised

Bloodied and bruised beyond recognition
Buried accused betrayed to perdition
Nailing debts to the cross, bringing life to the lost

Death defeaters, champions in Christ we're crowned with life
Death Defeaters, champions in Christ we’re called to rise

Bloodied and bruised beyond recognition
Buried accused betrayed to perdition
Nailing debts to the cross, bringing life to the lost

Death defeaters, champions in Christ we're crowned with life
Death Defeaters, champions in Christ we're called to rise

Redemption is mine

Death came to take, they gave him three nails he gave them 3 days
Make no mistake, no power in hell could of kept him in the grave

No chance in hell
Track Name: Blood Diamonds (feat. Tommy Green of Sleeping Giant)
Left for dead, no way out
But through Christ, we are found

We were tore up from the floor up
Caught up in sin, broken within
Crushed with no will to live
Nothing to give, hope running thin
Sailing this sinking ship

My life was falling apart
Slipping through guilty hands
No solid ground for me to stand

But You gave Your life
For the lowest of the low
To see the worst of the worst made whole

Blood diamonds

Left for dead, no way out
But through Christ, we are found

Our lives reclaimed by Your exchange
Our ransom paid all debt erased

Mind in the gutter, life in the drain
But you saw something better, You died in my place

We're found empty handed
But now we are alive in Your hands

Left in the mud worth less than nothing
Covered in blood, now tell me what i’m really worth
Stuck in the mud, worth less than nothing
Covered in blood, so tell me what’s my street value

Left for dead no way out
But through Christ we are found

Blood Diamonds
Track Name: Establish Dominion
I will never surrender to the spirit of the age
I'll establish dominion let your glory fill this place

All of hell trembles at the sound of your name

Your kingdom come, by my hands Your will be done
In Jesus name break every chain
Your light we take, we will fight the fight of faith
The gates of hell will not prevail

They will burn when we fast, when we pray
They will burn when we live to glorify Your name

Fast pray live
Prayer availed in the lion’s den
I see no difference now and way back when

All of hell please take a step back
I pray you get that Holy Ghost Heart attack
Get that Holy Ghost Heart Attack
Track Name: Brothers
No way I'll watch your heart turn black, without a fight to bring you back
I know you don't believe, still I'll prophecy, Destiny
All the vices on your mind, all your soul crushing chains
Every truth sucking lie, broken now in Jesus name

I declare life

Brother of mine be free from death
Destruction awaits on this path you tread

Rock bottom is where you've found yourself
Seething in your own hand made hell
Stop running your tripping out of time
I pray you take the cross and not your life

I give my word and my bond, my blood oath to keep
I will fight and stand my ground until it’s life you see

I won't run out even when you turn your back on me
I won't give up on His promises for this family, yo kick it

Even if you turn your back on me
I won't run out on family, brothers to the end

I won't run out, I won't give up
On family, Brothers to the end
Track Name: More Than Conquerors (feat. Matthew Salamante of LIV.)
Sons of thunder deny the truth betrayer
In Christ we stand united against the devastator
More than conquerors

Doers of the Word, though we're hated by the world
Loyal to the grave, Faithful to the son
By the blood of the lamb OVERCOME

Covered by the blood, we will overcome

By Your spirit, I claim my Destiny
By your Word, I live in victory

More than conquerors

Many are called but few are chosen
I'll carry my cross for the lost the broken


Fullness of life found only in the one
Break that Holy sweat son
Til I die i’ll testify
Track Name: Take The Blame (feat. Nate Rebolledo of Xibalba)
You take your fist and raise it to the sky
Your blame insists that He owes you life

The truth is we are just a breath
By our sin we have purchased death
Deception will never let you see
In corruption we're undeserving

A bitter soul, life chained broken by the past
A buried hope, your freedom frozen by your wrath

With nothing we've come into this life
With nothing we're leaving when we die
We're living these days on borrowed time
Still blaming the Lord for all our strife

There’s no shadow in truth that won’t be brought to light
There’s no shadow in truth left for you to hide

You’ve turned your back, so take the blame
Track Name: Hard Times (feat. Levi Lehman of Judgement X Day)
Running no more
Through hard times Your strength is enough
Through high tides I'm anchored above
Against the odds, no matter the cost
Through trials of life You're right by my side

Not alone in this fight, You're with me 'til the end
Not alone in this fight, I swear to God I'm pressing in

I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me
Nothing's impossible our God is unstoppable

Mark 10:27
Track Name: Party Step (Bonus Track)
It’s time to party
You can’t deny the feeling inside
When there’s nowhere to run there’s nowhere to hide
You need the love of Christ
Empty with lies, no hope inside
If you’re trusting the world it’ll eat you alive

Watch your step, kid
Breaking out
Coming through Loud n Rowdy crew
Spitting truth breaking all the rules
Our chains are loosed cuz it’s Christ we choose
Living life renewed with Jesus attitude

From darkness to light You’ve changed my life
To see Your name lifted high, JESUS CHRIST

No more living with my life bound in sin
No more tripping since I gave my life to Him

I’m all in
Party Step
