“the Groove Metal crowd will eat this up ” – Metal Temple

“They pulled in the most crowd response of any group who performed that night, encouraging moshing and headbanging from those assembled. The band members themselves were all over the stage, hair flying and scowls shooting from every direction. Devilz also introduced the audience to a new track entitled “Trainwreck“, which opens with a very well-performed imitation of a locomotive picking up speed before getting into some surprisingly funky riffs and ultimately flowing into the expected heavy metal sound.” – Metal Nation (Live Review 2018)

“Devilz By Definition have certainly made a name for themselves in the local scene. They are known for fast paced, tight, super energetic shows, this group of hardcore thrashers make a party out of every performance.” – Windsorite

“These guys seemingly came out of nowhere last year and have mercilessly released their aggression on the metal masses of Windsor like a war between thunder gods with M60′s. They’ve come a long way and have kept a loyalty to a lot of the other bands that came up with them, playing a lot of same bills to help raise awareness for a lot of up and coming bands and giving them some great exposure.”  – The Windsor Zene

About:
Initially formed in 2010, Windsor, Canada’s Devilz by Definition is a band reborn many times, in many ways, and has always come back stronger and heavier than the last time. No obstacle has stood in their path to date and none will, these are driven and hard-working musicians with a passion for the live show. Their energy both on and off the stage is unique and captivating.

The formation of the band happened completely by accident. Popz Munro was just learning how to play guitar and jamming with friend Timguy when they decided to add more friends to the gang. After a couple of months, they were offered a show and they fell in love with performing live music. Since then they have shared the stage with bands such as The Faceless, Revocation, Cryptopsy, and Beyond Creation and appeared at several regional festivals.

With a constant revolving door of members and instrumental position changes, the band has changed drastically over the last decade. From punk/thrash in the early years to more of a refined metalcore/groove sound in recent releases.

Since their inception, Devilz by Definition have released two EPs, “Blood Drawn” (2010), and “Rape of a Czar” (2014); a full length “The Devilution” (2016) and have another EP “The Bitter Remains of Human Consumption” expected in 2021.

=========================

The EP as a whole:
“This album represents the world we live in and the changes that are tearing us apart as individuals. It is also about the unity that music brings into this darkness.”

Track by Track explained:
1. Bitter Remains – The song is about the powers that be in control of a dying breed on the edge of extinction
2. Peace by Piece – The pieces of ourselves that sometimes get lost along the way and the effort at putting them back together Peace by Piece. In essence, life is a puzzle and we are all the pieces.
3. Time Is Near – Time is near represents the awareness of the phrase “life is short” and puts the listener in a place of urgency on the aspect of the timeline of life itself.
