Bloodlines releases a visualizer video for the song ‘Devil’ from the ep “Hevel” which has been released on November 12 via Facedown Records. Check it out below.

The EP marries classic metal core with a distinctly progressive twist, and sees the Gulf Coast 4-piece taking cues from bands like For Today, Impending Doom and Convictions.

“Hevel” was written to address seasons of life, with the band taking inspiration from the biblical book of Ecclesiastes.

Ecclesiastes uses the word “meaningless” a lot which is translated to “hevel” in Hebrew and has a different interpretation. The word hevel in the context of the book means vanishing vapor or smoke. So in essence, Ecclesiastes wasn’t necessarily saying that the work and the seasons we go through in life are meaningless, but rather they are just fleeting, ever changing. Like vapor, here one minute and gone the next.

Lyrics


Son of man, sing this funeral song for the king of Tyre. Give him this message from the Sovereign Lord (Ez 28:12)

Let me see you Fall down to the place of the dead,
Down to its lowest depths (Isa 14:15)

You were… the model of perfection
You were made..with every precious thing (Ez 28:12)
And all for the sake of pride
You breath life into the knowledge of sin

All you’ve sown are religions, traditions, and doctrines of man
You’re in a pointless endeavor
Ephemeral are your wicked ways
Evanescent are your words speaking hatred from a throne of lies
Won’t be enslaved in this deadly trap of deception anymore

I’ll never sell my soul
I know I’m worth so much more
I’ll never sell my soul
I’ll never sell my soul to the Devil

I will split your lying tongue and defile your splendor
You will die the death of the slain
The final breath of your dying reign

Cause I know you are a lion
Who wants to watch me fall.
I am immortal
and you are a burning angel.

You are dead
Rot in hell
This is the end
Forever
Never to be seen again.

***
