One Question Interviews: The Devil

The Devil

SPB: In your debut album you are using a wide variety of vocal samples from famous speeches. Do you believe that a vocal performance can be adequately replaced by such samples? Or, do you believe that there is something else that attracts people within those famous words?

The Devil: Seeing we are technically an instrumental band that uses historic and conspiracy inspired voice samples in place of traditional vocals, we never actually had any intention of enlisting a vocalist. Sure, we could of just had lyrics sung about all these controversial subject matters, but we felt strongly that when dealing with serious matters surround government conspiracies & hidden esoteric knowledge. Using the actual real samples relating to the event(s) was a much more powerful and thought-provoking way of getting our audience to think about the message we intended to convey.
