Armageddon 03:30
-VERSE- I am the beast I am the earth I am the blood that fills the sky I am the feast of famine thirst And every will to justify -CHORUS- It's every day and every night My own war To take it head on With every wrong  And every right Back for more It's armageddon -HOOK- Armageddon Come, come and get it Armageddon, baby Armageddon Come, come and get it -VERSE- I am the flesh I am the flame A temple to carnality We are enmeshed Sacred, profane Reflected through brutality -CHORUS- It's every day and every night My own war To take it head on With every wrong  And every right Back for more It's armageddon -HOOK- Armageddon Come, come and get it Armageddon, baby Armageddon Come, come and get it

-VERSE 1- Shame Wear the pity and the blame Basking in the glow A lovely crown of thorns Cliche Overdramatic display An unwelcome show Of steady undertow -CHORUS- You'll make 'em watch while you go down in flames Self-inflicted pretty little martyr If forcing empathy Is as clever as you can be We'll gladly watch while you go down in flames Burn baby burn -VERSE 2- Vain You're the Abel and the Cain No coincidence You crave an audience Stray Committed to the decay Fake mercy pose And on and on it goes -CHORUS- You'll make 'em watch while you go down in flames Self-inflicted pretty little martyr If forcing empathy Is as clever as you can be We'll gladly watch while you go down in flames Burn baby burn

-VERSE- Seven million strung out on ambition Sea of relay high rise in remission All with a hope and a plan to make it out Give up the ghost when they try to push it down Now -CHORUS- Ready, Aim, Fire -VERSE- Die a thousand deaths in hesitation  Far beyond the spark of inspiration Close to the soul and away from all the doubt Live what is known when you hear the softest sound Say -CHORUS- Ready, Aim, Fire

The Fall 03:47
-VERSE 1- You've bought all the happiness But you still want more Parade all that you possess Though there's no one keeping score Dreaming of vertigo From the highest fame Feeling the undertow When it starts to break -CHORUS- Everything will fall away Someday All that's real is what remains To always -VERSE 2- A cage of the tangible All you had to own You poor social cannibal What's left when you lose the throne We're of the same affair Pride before the fall We'll see what's truly there When it takes us all -CHORUS- Everything will fall away Someday All that's real is what remains To always

The Devil 03:59

Demon 04:55
-VERSE- I said "Lord, lord, lord" It's a long dark road And my tongue's a sword When speaking gold In my deep down soul I am flies and blood And it's black as coal In this heart of mud -CHORUS- And they say, "You got a demon" -VERSE- And I'm home sweet home Like a herd of swine And the seeds I've sewn Well they're mine all mine They're down so low In floorboard rest There's a great big hole Straight through my chest -CHORUS- And they say, "You got a demon"

about

The summoning circle has been drawn. The candles have been lit. The inscriptions have been recited. As the ritual ends, you look up and find a well dressed man in a suit standing before you.... at least - you think he's a man. He has the body of a man, but in his hands he holds a large skull of an animal you don't recognize above his face. Or maybe it is his face... You have enough strength to ask who he is, but you already know before he tells you. "I'm The Devil", he replies.

Blue Stahli's sophomore album The Devil has been gaining momentum for some time, with two chapters being released in order to prepare fans for the eclectic new tone this album brings. Never one to give the audience what they expect, Blue Stahli moves with the grace of something otherworldly in between genres as if they have never existed at all. From heavy metal guitar riffs that sound most at home in a run-down dive bar under catch pop vocals that you swear you've heard on the radio, or bass-heavy, lo-fi swamp stomper blues along side tracks with glitched out electronics, hip-hop beats and even a dash of 8-bit flair, you'll hear the perfect mixture of dark, mysterious, alluring and infectious that you would expect from an album called The Devil. Summoning the assistance of Emma Anzai (Sick Puppies) for her unique brand of bass guitar mastery, Mark Salomon (Stavesacre, Neon Horse, and The Crucified) for his trademark vocal work, and Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, Blessthefall) to mix it all together, Blue Stahli delivers an album that has to be heard to be believed. Just be warned, once you summon The Devil, you'll never get rid of it....
