about

Devil's Dice Birmingham, UK

listen through the debut album ‘Libertarian’ and you will hear this is no mere tribute to traditional metal; elements of the classic bands shine through, but at the same time Devil’s Dice don’t sound specifically like any of them, creating their own unique character and sound which is distinctly modern Classic Rock & Heavy Metal. ... more

Track Name: Feed The Flames
Do my eyes deceive me?
Such a sight to behold
An ambivalent nation
Our future's brought and sold

An array of distractions
Numbing the mind and the pain
Blindness forced upon us
Its time to break these chains

Can't you see past the words that your fed?
Why walk a path you've been ordered to tread?
Don't let faith in yourself get lost
Don't Surrender

Feed the flames, of freedom's fire
Liberty, our one desire
(So) find the truth, in your own mind
Search yourself, for the strength inside
Feed the flames, feed the fire
Standing proud, burning higher
I'm not here to waste my time
I'll make my stand, before I die

I'll burn forever
And melt your callous disguise
No matter what you throw at me
I'll never be denied

Far too long in silence
The truth was kept in the dark
Set freedom's gears in motion
Lets ignite this spark

Life's a war with no end in sight
To survive in this endless fight
Never forget that you do have a choice
Stand up and use your voice!
Track Name: Passive Resistance
Pushed in the corner
Locked in the box
No options left open
Cast upon, a hopeless course

its fuelling the anger
From the man on the street
It takes more than opinions
To guarantee, a swift defeat

The words you speak are loud and proud
But without action you're lost in the crowd

When there’s no heart to go the distance
It’s just passive resistance
A righteous soul won’t move any ground
If he don’t make a sound
When there’s no will to face the instance
It’s just passive resistance
And all your talk won’t mean a thing
So let your voices sing!

Another drone on the TV
Hyping the tired clichés
You conscience won’t take it
You prime your mind for change

Still so many, just sit by
Armchair warriors them all
You realise that talk is cheap
Empty plans and curtain calls

Passion’s fire might burn inside
But only action can turn this tide
Track Name: I Walk Alone
A Parade of confusion
This ain't no straightforward life
Searching for my salvation
A burning hunger inside

How can I find, what I'm looking for...
It's a lonely road
On reflection, I know what's in store...
Behind every door

Forsaken, I Walk Alone
The house of broken love is my only home
Wo-o-oh, I Walk Alone
Am I forever bound to stand on my own

It isn't easy but I carry on
I know I've been here before
But every minute is a moment lost
Don't wanna lose anymore

Events of the past have their chains on me...
It's a heavy load
Fortune or fate, can they rescue me...
Set me free
Track Name: Forbidden Memory
When I think back to days gone by
A different life, a different time
Memories of a love that could have been
A ghost in my heart still haunting me

I can't turn back, or change what's inside
Within my soul, there's no place to hide

Forbidden memories
Fade into history
A life that could have been
That I'll never see

Your vision's burned inside my mind
The details fade with the march of time
No reason to doubt the path I've chose
This love I've found, is too strong to hold

But in my mind, you'll always be there
(If I saw you now, would you even care?)
Unanswered questions that I'll never share

Forbidden memories
Fade into history
A life that could have been
Or only a dream
Track Name: Libertarian
Forced life in the rat race
It will never be my game
Conform for the treasure
Pour your life straight down the drain
Identity wasted
In a web of greed and lies
Force fed by the hour
Now your brain's been paralyzed

Your survey says that i am wrong
its not my wish to just belong

My soul is not for sale
My mind is not for rent
Can't break this iron will
Can't break this strong defence

Your gutless words will fail
The way they always did
I see through every lie
And go my way instead

It's time
To take hold of your life

So many excuses
They say its easier this way
Sacrifice their potential
They've got nothing left to say
Was there ever a moment
When they yearned for something more
Than a life bound to order
A chance to settle the score

Its far too late to turn back now
I've made my choice, I'll stand my ground

You'll never change my mind
You'll never change a thing
Track Name: Chameleon (Right About You)
I’m seeing changes in you
What are you trying to do?
What are you trying to be?
It makes no sense to me

All the times we spoke
Your feelings feigned or provoked
Once I had time for you
Now I see I've been used

Pure Self Interest, Its just a game

Right about you, right to doubt you, right about you
Another disguise, time to realize, no more alibi’s

Just a Chameleon
A new enticing face
You exercise your charms
Then leave without a trace

And now I can’t forgive
You took what you could get
Left here with nothing more
Another damn regret

Pure Self Interest, in hopeless disgrace
A shameless fool, no conscience to waste

Is there no end to your games?
No excuses for this shame
Right to doubt everything I saw
Your life's a deception, tell me what for

I see changes
Changes in you
I'm seeing the changes
Changes in you

You Change - change to suit your game
You change - change with no ounce of shame
Track Name: Hour Of The Wolf
3AM, my eyes are wide open
All my troubles, shine crystal clear
Every fear, magnified in my mind
Every thought, every crime

Strong persistence, yet sleep Is denied me
Keep on thinking, of what could have been
Time rolls on, minutes feeling like days
Shadows fall, no escape

Save me
From this wide awake nightmare, haunting
Save me
Breathe some comfort inside me
So tired yet so sure, the wolf is at the door

In this prison, my thoughts start to wander
Back to places, i don't wish to be
Dreams denied, in this nexus of night
War within, no respite

Lonesome heartbeat, my only companion
Constant waiting, no peace to be found
Life on hold, in the hour of the wolf
I Can't Sleep...

Save me
From this wide awake nightmare
Save me
Somewhere that I can be free

All alone in the night
Somebody rescue me
As I pray for the light
Track Name: Destiny Calling
Sometimes I forget
How far we've come
Though the odds were against us
Ever since we've begun
Through all those hard times
You kept my dreams alive
A light in the darkness
That could never subside

You took the weight off my shoulders
One chance to begin again
Forget the past, that battle is over
You were my awakening

In the midst of the madness
You're my saving grace
In a world with no shelter
Your my last safe place
When the truth gets left behind
Your the one thing I can believe in
No other is capable
Of giving me this feeling

So long, I felt I was falling
Everyday was a losing game
No more, my destiny's calling
You were my awakening
Track Name: Hangin' On Too Long
Playing for time, is a dangerous thing
When you're waiting on change, a chance to begin
Free from the shackles, free from the pain
Breaking away from this anger and shame

Oh! It's too far gone,
I've been hangin' on too long
In a place I know is wrong
Oh! It's over, it's done
I've been hangin' on too long
In a place I don't belong

Lost in the shuffle, slummin' it with the fools
Liquor store wisdom, a fate that they choose
Walking the hard road, been payin' my dues
I'll fight my way back, I'll drive my way through
Track Name: The Grudge
Responsibility, a dirty word for you
Irrationality, disregard the truth

Forget, your sins of the past
(it's) my fault, your judgement is cast

A brazen attitude, you revel in disgrace

No chance , for making amends
A fractured soul with a lust for revenge
Too late, the verdict is in,
Vilify

Put the blame on me
Bear your grudge for the world to see
Lay it all on me
Lie, Hate, Sleep, Repeat

A faked reality, to justify your deeds
A warped mentality, your conscience in defeat

You play the victim well, then unleash the abuse

Spit your venom, smash my name
You’re just a coward in a losing game
Inside your mind, you know its true
All blame and guilt rest solely on you

Force the issue, spread the lies
Logic and reason so quickly denied
Your agenda's plan, so easy to see
Playing the victim for eternity
Track Name: Matter Of Faith
The deck is stacked, that's the way it seems
An uphill climb, like its always been
Too many times, I've seen my plans denied
By outside forces, they build a crushing tide

What's left for me to prove
Ask myself... what more can I do
This fire still burns inside
I'll defy...

Inside the fight goes on
Will I live to see it won?
Nothings guaranteed
The outcome's left undone
You can stand and hold your place
Or disappear without a trace,
It’s a matter of faith if you make it to the end

Common sense and my dreams collide,
To risk it all, or to just get by?
There must be a place they can co-exist,
Not end up scrawled, on some bucket list
I can't stop now, throw it away,
Too much I've earned, too much I've gained
A path that's worn, with the hands fate...
No easy answers this way
