about

DEVICE Vancouver, British Columbia

DEVICE plays old-school heavy metal; the kind that makes no apologies, rooted in an era when irony didn’t exist.

From sixnoises.com:
“Think British Steel and Lightning to the Nations pulling a rusty blade on Heavy Metal Maniac and Kill ‘Em All, with Don’t Break the Oath and Balls to the Wall cackling with glee in the background.”

DEVICE have forged their sound around metal’s classic triumphs

Track Name: Don't Mess With Texas
When I’m havin’ a drink in my Cadillac
Light up a smoke it really takes me back
To a time that was different than it is today
When a hard working young man could make his own way

On the gulf coast, where the breakers crash
Up in the pan-handle, young guns will clash
You might get lucky in Kentucky
Stay away from the east side, and don’t mess with Texas
Don’t mess with Texas

I gotta get on the road and try to be a star
But at four bucks a gallon I won’t get very far
The taxman called, he’s after my dough
But all I wanna do is catch my last show

Don’t tread on me, cause I’ll fight back
Don’t try to tell me that I’ve got no class
You might not like the red state way
Just live free or die, and don’t mess with Texas

I gotta go to place where they’ll protect my rights
Fire my guns and rock ‘n’ roll all night
Been working so hard for such a long time
Blood, sweat, and tears just to make a dime

If you got into trouble and you’re on the run
Find a good place to hide in the Mexican sun
You might not like the car I drive
Never saddle a dead horse, and don’t mess with Texas
Don’t mess with Texas

Don’t mess no

Oh yeah don’t fuck with Texas
Track Name: Defiant
They have killed our wives, and raped our daughters
The old and the sick have all been maimed and slaughtered
A new order, with an evil tyrant at the helm
We have all been exiled to a foreign realm

Together we shall fight and part these waters
Everlasting faith and our will shall be remembered
A modern world, occupied with destruction
Many will die but we shall all overcome

We are defiant
We are the brave
Destined to die
Or be enslaved

Pillar of fire
Show us the way
Save us from torment
We keep the faith

Women and our children must be brave
Our souls will be cleansed and our lives will be saved
Lost possessions, enemies they draw so near
Our homeland has become a place we all fear

God will pass his final judgement
Day of reckoning, fearful and alone
Horsemen of death and a storm are coming near
It has been written, lightning cast it into stone

We are defiant
We are the brave
Destined to die
Or be enslaved

Pillar of fire
Show us the way
Save us from torment
We keep the faith

Defiant till the end
Make this final stand
We will fight and be strong
Or they will kill us all

Escaped with our lives and we escaped the torture
Blood-stained past, an unspeakable horror
Forced to wander aimlessly into the wild
Harsh elements, we will wallow in the mire

The day will come when we topple giants
Strength will come because we are defiant
We have been chosen to rule over these rich lands
Gruesome battles, blood will spill in eastern sands

We are defiant
We are the brave
Destined to die
Or be enslaved

Pillar of fire
Show us the way
Save us from torment
We keep the faith
Track Name: Lost My Soul
I’m sitting here lost and wasted
I got no face, I got no soul
In this city of lights and madness
Everybody's looking for their soul

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Daddy needs a new pair of new shoes
Roll them dice and flip them cards
Jack on the river it ain't so hard

Dark and cold, I have lost my soul
Now I know that I have lost my soul

So many people are dead inside
We don’t live, we just survive
In this world of feats and wonders
We toil while they plunder

Empty promises, full of lies
They live while we die
Hard to take what they give
Cause we sleep while they live

Lost control, and I have lost my soul

I’m sitting here lost and wasted
I got no face, I got no soul
In this city of lights we’re chasing
Everyone's looking for that gold

I jumped the shark, I bet the farm
I blew it all, man, I went too far
Roll them dice and flip them cards
Jack on the river it ain't so hard

I’ve been told that I have lost my soul
Track Name: Medusa
Back in dreams, a thousand years
Cover me in blood-stained tears
Turn to stone, I glance at you
Piercing eyes enable you

Many souls have come before
Calling at your temple door

Other warriors, frozen in stone
Fear myself for what is known
You’re a titan, I’m a fool
Here we meet in this final duel

Cry for mercy, a thousand fold
Paid no heed and I was told

Cross the Styx, paid my fare
Cry for mercy, face the nightmare

Darkness bends shadowy twists
Saw your form in evening mists
Now I have you, you are mine
Feel this glory as sweet as wine

Know it’s right, I feel you now
Slash my sword and cut you down

Cross the Styx, paid my fare
Cry for mercy, face the nightmare

Medusa you’re mine
Medusa you’re mine
The beast with the killer eyes

Medusa you’re mine
Medusa you’re mine
The beast with the killer eyes
The killer with the fiery eyes
Prepare for your demise

Severed head, the Kraken wakes
Seas they rise, the earth will shake
Poseidon and Zeus they wait
Face your fears and seal your fate

Perseus, be swift be bold
Paid the price with witch’s gold

Cross the Styx, paid my fare
Cry for mercy, face the nightmare
Track Name: Miracle Metal
I am the man who stopped the motor of the world
A destroyer under the sign of the dollar
I swear by my life and my love of it
I will never live my life for the sake of another man

Punished for ability
Punished for knowledge
This is insanity
We are the hunted

Forged in fire, the Miracle Metal
Taken by force, the Miracle Metal

I will destroy this world full of looters
Who search and crave an un-earned greatness

Trains they stop rolling
Oil stops flowing
Burning desire
Fuelling the fire

Driving the industry
Driving the power
Un-godly tragedy
This darkest hour

Armed with nothing but meaningless phrases
Reducing men to docile animals
No more values, only social customs
Nothing more than a collection of chemicals

Don’t try to question
Don’t try to struggle
Nothing else matters
Total disaster

Forged in fire, the Miracle Metal
Taken by force, the Miracle Metal
Track Name: City Of Refuge
Offer sacrifice for life
Do not pay the dog’s price
Immolated to Molech
Heathens consume their own flesh

City of Refuge
Seek the Asylum
Sacred ones hold your ground

City of Refuge
Seek the Asylum
Avengers hunt you down

Dogs of war, an angel of mercy
Hounds of hell fulfill their glory
Asmodeus gives a false lament
Pagan rites lead only to death

City of Refuge
Seek the Asylum
Sacred ones hold your ground

City of Refuge
Seek the Asylum
Avengers hunt you down

Send the fire and worms in their flesh
Chase the wind, the dust of death
Evil kings with evil plots
Corpses of their criminals rot

City of Refuge
Seek the Asylum
Sacred ones hold your ground

City of Refuge
Seek the Asylum
Avengers hunt you down
Track Name: Enemy's Blood
Strike down the people
Worshipping gods made from human hands
Echoes of a prophecy
Lead us to the Promised Land

Down through the river
Straight through the valley of the dead

We will tear down their walls
And bathe in our Enemy’s Blood

An eye for an eye
Skin for skin
No redemption
For your sins

Pool of fire
Sounds of wailing and grinding of teeth

We will tear down their walls
And bathe in our Enemy’s Blood

The just shall rejoice
To see the vengeance
Dogs lap up the blood of the wicked

Raise up your horns
Lay your feet on your enemy’s neck

We will tear down their walls
And bathe in our Enemy’s Blood
Track Name: Am I The Iceman?
I’ve been betrayed
My heart is blackened
My soul decays
From what has happened

Life on display
A crime of passion
Dark masquerade
Unholy fashion

You don’t know
You don’t see
My agony
My destiny

Veiled in mystery
This misty marshland
Rebels of the sea
Am I the Iceman?

What is my name
Zabeth à Pézo
An un-marked grave
Except for Jérôme

Now you know
My true name
Secrecy
Is my fate

I traveled so far where you found me here
I can’t explain the pain I feel
Washed ashore legs cut from my knees
Can’t take anymore I beg you please
You took me in as a hopeless case
Ever since the day my life was erased
I’ve never spoken a word to you
I hope you know that I loved you
The secret I bear can be seen through my tears
Legend of my name lives on through the years
Track Name: The Devil And The Shoemaker
For seven years I haven’t aged a day
And struck fears in the hearts of men
I dance with your women to the Devil’s fiddle
A pact with the Devil is the price I paid

I’m a sorcerer of evil
And all that’s not pure
I ride like the wind by the pale moonlight
From town to town on a mysterious white horse

When the night falls, please say your prayers
I take many forms, do please beware
A bloodthirsty dog breathing hell’s fire
Screams of fear are my one desire

Majestic white horse who roams through the night
A great violent bear who’s sure to attack
If you travel with me please hold on tight
If Lucifer walks by I’ll jump on his back

I don’t know why you’re so easily fooled
I know my ways, they sometimes seem cruel
It makes me laugh to see you running away
I’m just a man trying to live for today

I’ll take you on a journey on a piece of bark
Boston in a flash as we travel through the dark
Don’t know where to run to, don’t know where to hide
But you’ll remember running for your lives

I travel through forests and over the seas
Superstitions have surrounded me
Supernatural powers, the truth’s in the wine
Come on over, we’ll have a good time

I’m a womanizer and a gambler
I’m the Devil’s shoemaker
Bootlegging’s been my profession
And you don’t need an invitation

For seven years I haven’t aged a day
People fear to speak my name
They dance to Lucifer’s fiddle
Lord knows I’m the one to blame

I’m a sorcerer of evil
I’m out of control
The holy catholic church
Exorcised the demon to save my soul
