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

Defiant 06:37
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

Lost My Soul 04:31
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

Medusa 05:29
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

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

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

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

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

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 Cy à Mateur Cy à Mateur Cy à Mateur Cy à Mateur Cy à Mateur

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
