When I was young I worked these lands Guided by my father’s hand Then you anointed me your lord and king To rule you all under my command Chorus The anointed ones are bound to come And they’ll turn to evil ways You’ll be delivered into your enemy’s hands Until you see the end of days By my sword we will take this land From the ones who brought you pain All the nations will tremble in fear At the mention of your name Chorus The anointed ones are bound to come And they’ll turn to evil ways You’ll be delivered into your enemy’s hands Until you see the end of days When I die you’ll be lead astray All because of your arrogance You were warned of the doom it would bring When it comes you won’t stand a chance Chorus The anointed ones are bound to come And they’ll turn to evil ways You’ll be delivered into your enemy’s hands Until you see the end of days

Into The Sun 03:28
Visions from another world will come Prophesies foretell the great beyond Paranoia takes control of your mind Hallucinations make you blind Fire in the sky Death from above Will the angels fly Into the Sun Heavens start to fall Nowhere to run Will the angels fly Into the sun Wizards and the serpents poison your brain Spells and venom keeping you insane A fortress of solitude Nightmares disguising the truth Fire in the sky Death from above Will the angels fly Into the Sun Heavens start to fall Nowhere to run Will the angels fly Into the sun Into the sun Into the sun Fire in the sky

Wasting Away 07:32
You used to be A friend of mine Now you’re someone I don’t recognize Can’t point north You’ve lost your way Can’t look no one Straight in the face You’ve lost your mind You’ve lost control Can’t decipher Friend from foe You’re overjoyed You’re in ecstasy But you just can’t face Reality Chorus Stones in your brain Can’t kill your pain Wasting your life I see you wasting away Bleeding hearts Keep you justified Deep down you know It’s just a lie Contribute nothing To society Then you expect My sympathy Can’t shake it off Can’t change your ways Your habits and hang-ups Always call your name You’re paranoid Can’t trust no one It’s too late now The damage is done Chorus Stones in your brain Can’t kill your pain Wasting your life I see you wasting away Bridge It’s your life The choice was yours Now all you need Is a little more Vicious cycle Without end Never would’ve wished That on you my friend You used to be A friend of mine Now you’re someone I don’t recognize Can’t point north You’ve lost your way Can’t look no one Straight in the face You’ve lost your mind You’ve lost control Can’t decipher Friend from foe You’re overjoyed You’re in ecstasy But you just can’t face Reality Chorus Stones in your brain Can’t kill your pain Wasting your life I see you wasting away Stones in your brain Oh it can’t kill the pain I see you wasting away

Taken from home and across the sea Young men full of hopes and dreams There’s a fight worth dying for So release the dogs of war Chosen for a noble cause To save the world from the enemy’s claws You’ll be remembered for your bravery Immortalized for eternity Chorus Just do and die Eternal nightmares will survive Heroes pay the ultimate price Even with all you’ve sacrificed Follow your orders, just do and die Send you straight into the mouth of hell You’ll see things not even stories could tell You’ll die with honor with no one to blame But you’ll die just the same A no win scenario How to escape, no one knows Sent here from the powers that be Who’ve dictated your destiny Chorus Just do and die Eternal nightmares will survive Heroes pay the ultimate price Even with all you’ve sacrificed Follow your orders, just do and die Spilling blood for lines in the sand Following orders from a higher command After all you had no choice Able to speak but you have no voice In the end nothing will change We’ll only see more of the same Expendable youth sent to their graves Monuments bearing your names Chorus Just do and die Eternal nightmares will survive Heroes pay the ultimate price Even with all you’ve sacrificed Follow your orders, just do and die

Never Enough 03:39
We all know about temptation We just want some satisfaction We all have our weaknesses It’s the human condition Now ever man has his virtues And everybody’s got their vice We know it’s wrong but we want to And we pay the price Cause all you want is everything All you need don’t mean a thing And I see now, your desire And I feel now that endless fire All you want Is all you see Devil on your back Won’t let you be Cause it’s never enough We all know about addiction We all know about lust All your worldly possessions Return to dust Cause all you want, is just one taste That one desire, can’t be replaced And I see now, your desire And I feel now, that endless fire All you want Is all you see Devil on your back Won’t let you be Cause it’s never enough Cause all you want is everything All you need don’t mean a thing And I see now, your desire And I feel now that endless fire All you want Is all you see Devil on your back Won’t let you be Cause it’s never enough Never enough Never enough Never enough

I came to this world In hopes of a promised land I looked to the ones who learned It wasn’t as it should Chorus I lost my youth And I was stripped of my dreams I lost my youth And I was stripped of my dreams Ah yeah Stripped of my dreams Ah yeah Stripped of my dreams I was promised The land of milk and honey I touched the morning dew And saw the peaks of ice Chorus I lost my youth And I was stripped of my dreams I lost my youth And I was stripped of my dreams Ah yeah Stripped of my dreams Ah yeah Stripped of my dreams I walked the burning sands With seven virgins of this land I’ve known the pleasures Only read in the papers Chorus I lost my youth And I was stripped of my dreams I lost my youth And I was stripped of my dreams Ah yeah Stripped of my dreams Ah yeah Stripped of my dreams Stripped of my, stripped of my Dreams yeah Stripped of my dreams Oh I tell you I’ve been Stripped of Stripped of Stripped of Stripped of…

All alone to walk the night Cast out from the light Those raised from noble birth Seek only to salt the earth They’ve been sent on a quest unbound All is lost, nothing is found All our hopes and desires Are consumed into the fire Trapped in the turmoil And there’s no way Out of this somber madness Dreams of one day seeing justice It may come through grief and strife Only if it costs your life Overwhelmed with complacency Bringing forth a dark destiny Where does it end, when does it change Pure pandemonium And there’s no way out Torches blaze In fists of rage Against our will We hunt to kill ATTACK! Taken by force Following An unending course You cannot fail Carry on Blazing your trail In for the kill Persevere Against your will Be as it may Can’t stop Hunting your prey Chorus: Strike down your oppressors Raise up a new leader In the end Nothing will change Fighting the good fight Dying for what is right In the end Nothing will change No way no how Push ahead Can’t turn back now You’re in too deep Living with No rest or sleep Selling your soul You’ve just Lost all control Standing your ground Even though You’re going down Strike down your oppressors Raise up a new leader In the end Nothing will change Hunt or be hunted Kill or be killed In the end Nothing will change

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
