about

Devium Springfield, Ohio

Formed in 2007, the metal quintet hailing from home-spun Springfield, Ohio has fought hard to fill a void in the hearts and minds of metal heads everywhere. In the West-Central Ohio town called home by predeceasing metal bands such as Shovelhead, the Midwestern metal heads were aching for the return of their metal roots, as deep seeded in the Midwest as self reliance and character grit. ... more

Track Name: My Retribution
There comes a day when you realize you are nothing you wanted to be,
well, that time is now. Will you lie back down, or rise UP?

Its not the life I'm meant to live
Used by all I have called a friend
How can I turn my cheek again?
No love of self my greatest sin

Nothing more than lies
in a decaying mind
breeds unwilling lives
I see it now

Too many times
we throw away life
never to rise
I was

Fighting for nothing
Living a lie
All because
I gave up the fight

Chorus
I am not
The one you want me to be
I will not
Lie down for you again
I can not
See all you've taken from me
I will not
Let you win

Now rise up

That way of life is done for me
New confidence now takes the lead
Blood clenched fists for all to see
Retribution set me free

Nothing more than lies
in a decaying mind
breeds unwilling lives
I see it now

Too many times
we throw away life
never to rise
I was…

cuz’ I hated myself

I AM NOT
I CAN NOT

Its not the life I'm meant to live
I will not
Use by all I've called a friend
I can not
How can I turn my cheek again?
I will not
No love of self my greatest sin

Fighting for nothing
Living a lie
all because
of you
Track Name: Blasphemer's Fame
How do you…

Undermine all the words
And slap a faith in the face
All the music I love
Has been sadly disgraced

Do you really believe
All the filth you portray
Was it all for the wealth?
Blasphemer’s fame?

Chorus
I will not pretend
Not to fear what’s at my end
How do you take a bite
Of your maker’s hand?
Your Maker’s hand?

When
The sky
Burns red
Will you believe all you said
Or take the last chance
To regret? Yea….

How do you…

Slander up the good word
And burn the pages of time
Reverse the cross on your neck
Embrace the star of the lie

Preach the word of the goat
And all the words that defy
Was it all for the wealth?
Blasphemer’s fame?

Chorus

When the sky
Is burning red
Believe the lies
Or regret

When the sky is red,
Will believe all you said

When the sky is red
Do you know that it’s the end
Track Name: War Within
This war it’s ever grinding
No side will ever win
One love, one hate
The choice that reciprocates
One love, one hate
The choice that always lets me drown
Lets me drown

Chorus
God help me
Help me to honor the two
I can’t choose
Both are the lifeblood of me
Can’t they see?
How can I just let one go?
Must they both be released?
Why?

This choice, it will bury me
No life, will be the same
One love, one hate
The choice that reciprocates
One love, one hate
The choice that always lets me drown
Lets me drown

Chorus

They don’t understand
Understand me
I can’t choose
Track Name: Buried Alive
In this game called life you’re so alone
Everyday’s another war just to stay afloat
The blackest clouds now shroud your eyes
You fail to see the worth in all the failing fights

So beaten down
And pushed around
No ounce of strength to even stand your ground
Buried alive

How do you go on?
How do we go on?

Did I die or is this another dream?
Did I die or is this another dream?
Did I die or is this another dream?
Did I die tonight?

Chorus
Stop digging your grave
It’s not your time
Take off your death mask
And live again
NOW

Now you work so hard just to fall behind
You burned another day for the promised lie
Life will beat you down until you die
Asking God above for another sign

So far behind
No end in sight
You have reached the very end of your line
Buried alive

How do you go on?
How do we go on?

Did I die or is this another dream?
Did I die or is this another dream?
Did I die or is this another dream?
Did I die tonight?

Chorus

Live again, NOW.
Track Name: Plague: Humanity
We were the ones who stood by and watched her die
Free were the ones who scoffed and held our nose up high
Diseased are the ones who turn away and let it go
We are the ones who will reap everything we sow...

Now go

Rising tides and blackened skies
All things we created
Rising tides and blackened skies
Our fault

Chorus
Failure comes
We must break these chains
Nowhere to run
We are the human plague
We must break
Break free of these chains
This human plague
We are Humanity

We are the ones who must heal our mother dear
Free are the ones who will drown in tides of tears
Diseased are the ones who dismissed the sacred life
We are the ones who are everything despised

Despised

Rising tides and blackened skies
All things we created
Rising tides and blackened skies
It is our fault

Failure comes
We must break these chains
Nowhere to run
We are the human plague
We must break
Break free of these chains
The human plague
We are the disease

The disease

We are the human strain

Rot the Earth

We are the human plague
Track Name: Fidelity
Another sip goes down
Helps believe in her
Makes us want to try
To lead a solitary life

They all told me to
Go live the dream
But the dream will always lie
So take a bite of the fuckin’ pie

Chorus
All the scars lay down to prepare for more
No matter how much it hurts you always pick the sore
I can’t believe in you
Cause every time I’m left to fuckin’ burn alone
She shares disease and then she disappears
Leaves you sick and filled with all the hate and fear
I’m so ashamed
I’m left to blame
Left to blame

She spread her wings today
White feathered grace
Sang her song of love
With bloody talons below

They all told me to
Just back away
But the beautiful voice pulled me in
Lost again in love’s fuckin’ hateful gaze

Chorus

Blame for the fall again
Ride the storm until the end
To rise above you

When the true one is finally there
The words of truth fall on deaf ears
I can’t believe in you
