about

Devilz by Definition Windsor, Ontario

Devilz By Definition started as a three piece from where most bands come from: the garage. Hailing from the tough streets of Drouillard, Windsor Ontario, Devilz By Definition is a band first, gang second. Similar to the mindset of bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Biohazard and even N.W.A, --DBD is one of a kind, and make no mistake, these are bad dudes. ... more

Track Name: A Blissfull Insanity
Song: A blissful Insanity
Artist: Devilz By Definition
Album - The Devilution
Year 2016

(Verse)
Push through the boundaries, of which we are blinded
eyes are wide open, judgment is clouded
it will never, be the same
erased from the timeline forever
the scars still remain, only to remind us
we wear the mark of affliction
the story unfolds, its written
in our skin
Track Name: The Pledge_Project
Song: The Pledge_Project
Artist - Devilz By Definition
Year 2016
Album: The Devilution

(Part one - The Pledge)

“This is the pledge to heavy metal
represent what you stand for”

I pledge allegiance to heavy metal
and everything for which it stands
to bang my head till sweat pours steady
and tour across this land
to treat my brothers and sisters like blood
no matter the creed
to pick a fellow pitter up
and always share the weed
I pledge allegiance

(Part two - Project)

“They are the enemy”
You are the enemy, you are the enemy
the mercs with bags on their feet, oh,
the are the enemy, they are the enemy
they are there because you are a pest
they believe your existence should be put to rest, oh,
they are the enemy, they are the enemy
stay in the shadows the man with the light
is looking for you where you hide
for if you are spotted you scurry and scatter
a bounty is placed on your life
don’t be a fool
it is our time to rule

Year 2016

(verse 1)
“A lonely road “
A lonely road is a path once followed
grounded by the current
the energy is halted
a shockwave hits, destruction-destruction
the pressure builds ,implosion
crumble inside myself

(Chorus)
This world is alive
but the people inside it are all deceased (x2)
We are the powerful voices
that raise you from your slumber
strings from the heart the beat of the soul
are the voices of reason

(Bridge)
The mountains part
the path has opened
the sky is beneath me and I’m looking down
as only, an observer - I see life for what it is
(see life for what it is)

(interlude))
an empty paper with a working pen
can be a masterpiece
but if the ink is dry
it will only scratch the surface

(Verse 2)

a perilous thought
could never prepare me
for what I have seen
these eyes have captured images
that one could only dream
crushing victory and painful defeat
lies corruption and valiant deceit

(Repeat Chorus)
We are the powerful voices
that raise you from your slumber
strings from the heart the beat of the soul
are the voices of reason


The voices of reason
Track Name: Dehumanizer
Song: Dehumanizer
Artist: Devilz By Definition
Album - The Devilution
Year: 2016

(Intro)
Warning, Warning
Warning, Warning
Warning, Warning
Dehumanization in 5,4,3,2,1

“Walk amongst the dead”

(Verse 1)
Eyes blacker then space
shifting gait
stumble onward to no destination
civilization collapsed
nobody was there
no one to witness the end of an age
no one and everyone

(Chorus)
Pressing forward, no rest for the wicked
endless fathoms traveled, no end in sight
wandering, gazing so hollow
a wolf turned sheep a bite without taste
it’s the end of a race

“The end of a race”

(Bridge)
lungs asking for air, never to be sated
drowning ceaselessly yet no pause to rest

(Interlude)
“Stench becomes scent
sound becomes sight
merciless and vigilant”

(Chorus x1)

“The end of a race”
The end of - the end of a race

(Outro)
Marching to the beat of a drum
that plays, silent to us all
Track Name: View From Up Here
Song: View From Up Here
Artist: Devilz By Definition
Album - The Devilution
Year 2016

(Verse one)
Reflections of the past are like a house of mirrors
I feel far away but somehow I am near
they tell me that I’m crazy, for thoughts that I possess
you do not understand, the purpose of this test

“I will not fail, born into lies
torn and divide”

(Bridge)
The method of the madness
speaks the truth of what we have to see
the view
from where we stand it is not clear
who had the hand to leave the clues
pursue
dig through the earth and all its worth
to find the purpose of your work
the truth
we wear the mark of affliction
pain reminds us that were still alive

“Were still alive”

(Breakdown)
Break down these walls (x4)

(Verse 2)
We search to find what we can’t grasp, the photos of the past
are pinned on the walls that we slowly built
the memories remain, imbedded like a stain
brought to the surface
only by our guilt

“By our guilt”

“The method of the madness”

(Outro)
We just run astray
waiting for the day
that we break down these walls
and erase them
forever (x3)

“Break down these walls”
Track Name: Rise And Fall
Song: Rise And Fall
Artist: Devilz By Definition
Album - The Devilution
year 2016

(Intro)
“The rise and fall - We live through it all”

(Chorus)
We Will Not Be
persuaded by your lies
We Will Not Be
Blinded by your disguise

(Verse one)
When everything and everyone sinks all around you it’s a matter of time
the hourglass is flipped - sand beneath you starts to drip
its all in your mind, its time to rewind
The ground that you stand on is slowly sinking
you reach out for a hand without thinking
the hand that you grab may not have a strong enough grip
your pulled to the top and then you will slip

“The rise and the fall - We live through it all”

(Bridge)
We will not be used and you’ll see the truth of our existence on
the blank state of your mind
“The rise and the fall - The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree cuz”

(Breakdown)
What goes up, must come down
it’s the laws of gravity
I refuse, to be a part of this travesty
it’s the the rise and the fall - we’ve been here before
the rise and the fall, we live through it all

(Chorus)

(Intro)
“Devilz By Defintion / The Definition Of Devilz
The Repetition Of Rebels Is The Definiiton Of Devilz”

(Bridge)
Break the bank and pocket - for the rise and for the fall
compromised yourself for life that’s why your left alone

(Chorus) (x2)
40 years in a day, all the angels say (x2)
oh, deny - that’s what’s left of one life

(Interlude)
They say we say that we die alone
this one, that one
everyone knowing and knowing alone
they say, we say, that we die alone
they day, they say, what’s left to save

“nothing at all - 40 years in a day”

(Chorus repeat)

(Breakdown) (2x)
Dormant horizon, where we die alone
Dormant horizon - what they feed you
Dormant horizon, where we die alone
Dormant horizon - what they feed you, oh

“4 days to ride alone - It’s on the line”

(Bridge)
4 days to do what you gunna say (x2)
on the ride to fall alone
4 days to do what you gunna say (x2)
on the ride to fall alone

Yea

“4 days to ride alone”

(Chorus x2)

(Crowd Chant x1)

(Interlude x1)
Track Name: System Is Flawed
Song: System Is Flawed
Artist: Devils By Definition
Album - The Devilution
Year: 2016

(Intro)
“In order to rise -There must be a fall
In order to fall - There must be a rise”

“1,2,3 lets go - Burn it all”

(Verse one)
Our amour not polished, our swords are not sharp
the try to attack us in the cover of dark
blinded by fear, there is no need to see
listen for footsteps from the heaviest feet

(Bridge)
No one is safe, not even the rich
money is paper there’s flames in the mist
burn it all
burn it all the system is flawed
Sections of land that claim to be owned
burn it all
burn it all the system is flawed
burn it all
money is paper there’s flames in the mist

(Breakdown)
Prisoners, in the minds eye

(Verse 2)
Heavy machines - men with no hearts
working together to tear us apart
setting examples and changing what’s right
they continue attacks in the cover of night

“The cover of night” (x2)

(Interlude)
Positions of power, obey and conform
stay or be torn, we must be reformed
reformed into what?
a perfect world will never exist
money is just paper and there’s flames in the mist

(Outro)
No one is safe, not even the rich
money is paper and there’s flames in the mist
this world around you, is yours for the taking
defenses deflating, the forces are breaking
the system is flawed

no one is safe not even the rich
money is paper and there’s flames in the mist
Track Name: Know Thyne Enemy
Song: Know Thyne Enemy
Artist: Devilz By Definition
Album - The Devilution
Year 2016

(Chorus)
“Keep your friends close, and your enemy’s even closer
trust isn’t given its earned
let me see you move

(Verse One)
Shake hands with path’s you cross ,wash the dirt from your fingertips
the stain of untruth can only be cleansed - by forgiveness
if the sheep walks alone, the wolf will tear meat from bone
the pack is where protection lies

(Chorus x2)

(Verse 2)
Ground zero is the number, where you find the ones who matter
destruction is all around, the structure crumbles beneath the ground
not a trace of existence, left only footprints
of the ones who stood their ground

(Breakdown)
Stabs in the back are a constant threat
the shadow is not your friend
merely a follower with ill intent
he will follow you until the end

“Know Thyne Enemy”

Know (x2)
Thyne
Enemy (x2)

“The shadow is not your friend”

What do you think the meaning of life is?

To live and, to live in the mystery and find purpose
and to live in the now…Magic, Now

What is your most adventurous memory?

This, I remember this, this is an adventure, this is the memory

what advice to you have for younger generations?

younger generations?
Live in the moment, don’t get old, don’t judge people
because you cant be free if you judge people
love now, create, inspire

how do you define free?

by doing what you love

what do you love?

This, the moment, love now - it repeats

what other advice do you have for us?

That your already doing, your always doing what’s in your heart
you can’t get away from your heart
because life is a paradox, it’s a mirror of confusion. So - love now

who do you love?

I love, all of you!
