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: The Anointed Ones
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
Track Name: Into The Sun
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
Track Name: Wasting Away
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
Track Name: Just Do And Die
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
Track Name: Never Enough
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
Track Name: Stripped Of My Dreams
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…
Track Name: Nothing Will Change
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
