about

In 1997 MIDEVIL would release their second album “Expiration Day” and try to continue to keep the momentum up, which was certainly a feat for any metal act in the 1990s. By the end of the decade, the group would have released a 5-song EP entitled “Force to Believe” in May of 1999 before finally putting MIDEVIL to rest.

Over the next 18-years, these private press releases would become highly sought after by fans and collectors alike. In 2017 a small buzz began to be heard again on social media about MIDEVIL

Track Name: Expiration Date
Expiration Date
(Mitchell, Pamblanco)

There’s an opening in the sky
An imaginary eye
All the prophets preach their word
Listen to oh what they say
It is now the final day
There’s no place to run or hide
The earth no longer can rotate
Radiation much too great
Reducing all that lives to ash
Buildings crumble to the ground
Seas swell up and people drown
Population dying fast

Time’s up
Too late
Final Day
Expiration Date

Sands of time now draining fast
Memories are of the past
Both are lost and both are gone
Your mouth becomes so very dry
Tint of red glows in your eye
All emissions from your soul
Your last breath it’s praying time
Pray forgiveness for your crimes
Death now aits to take its toll
See the town fall in the bay
Washing all of life away
Never to be seen again

Time’s up
Too late
Final Day
Expiration Date

Your mind is boiling
Evil’s foiling
The earth is dying fast
Your families dead
You’ve met the end
A priest can’t heal your past
Life’s a game
Nothing ever lasts

There’s an opening in the sky
An imaginary eye
All the prophets preach their word
Listen to oh what they say
It is now the final day
There’s no place to run or hide
The earth no longer can rotate
Radiation much too great
Reducing all that lives to ash
Buildings crumble to the ground
Seas swell up and people drown
Population dying fast

Time’s up
Too late
Final Day
Expiration Date

Expiration Date
Track Name: Be Afraid
Be Afraid
(Pamblanco, Mitchell, Plascak, Vesely)

In the night the sky holds
Unexplained mysteries
Government tries to hide
Cover up- can’t fool me
Waking you from your bed
Late at night-your mind roams
Are they Lies? You don’t know
Be the next they control

Stalking you down late into the night
So afraid you can’t win this fight
New humanity questions made
It’s not pretend- beware- Be Afraid

Want to know what’s inside
Want to know what’s concealed
Do they know? Have they lied?
Do they know? Is it real
Everyday every night
No one leaves- no one goes
Underground out of sight
The possess the unknown

Stalking you down late into the night
So afraid you can’t win this fight
New humanity questions made
It’s not pretend- beware- Be Afraid
Political breakthrough pays the price
If you know you will have to die
New humanity questions made
It’s not pretend- beware- Be Afraid

So much left untold
In this universe we can’t be all alone
So much we can’t see
If you knew - if you’d see
Maybe then- you’d believe
You’ll believe

Lost
We’re lost in time
Will we survive?
Fear
We fear our race
Will lose its place
Gone!
Track Name: This World
This World
(Pamblanco, Harmon)

Life
It’s all such a dream
You cannot feel
Your minds slow decay
Time slips away
The souls of the lost
Blood is their cost

Life’s a dream
So pretend
That this world
Will never end

Time
It slips oh so fast
Our lives can’t last
Our worlds fallen wars
Have to fight more
Our days become night
In dark we’ll fight

Life’s a dream
So pretend
That This World
Will never end
Take my hand
And you will see
That this world
Means nothing to me
Me!

Life
It’s all such a dream
Now you can feel
The lies we are told
Lies of the old
They laugh now I see
Laughing at me

Life’s a dream
So pretend
That This World
Will never end
Take my hand
And you will see
That this world
Means nothing to me
Life!
Track Name: The Game
The Game
(Pamblanco, Plascak, Mitchell, Vesely)

When I was a boy
They filled my head with lie
Broken and abused
I was left with no self pride
Winds will never change
We won’t see eye to eye
Prisoner to the game
This will be my demise

Fear that scares the fear
Pain that hurts the pain
Future’s so unclear
You’ve just played The Game

Controlled and confused
Afraid to disobey
Fighting- There’s no use
You will do what they say
Is there an escape?
Now you don’t want to play
By taking every breath
You have already played

Fear that scares the fear
Pain that hurts the pain
Future’s so unclear
You’ve just played The Game
Fear that scares the fear
Pain that hurts the pain
Future’s so unclear
You’ve just played The Game

When I was a boy
They filled my head with lie
Broken and abused
I was left with no self pride
Winds will never change
We won’t see eye to eye
Prisoner to the game
This will be my demise

Fear that scares the fear
Pain that hurts the pain
Future’s so unclear
You’ve just played The Game
Fear that scares the fear
Pain that hurts the pain
Future’s so unclear
You’ve just played The Game

You’re gonna play my game
You’re gonna feel my pain
You’re gonna fucking play
You’ve just played The Game
Track Name: Hands Across the Void
Hands Across the Void
(Pamblanco)

Trapped inside this ghost
Thanks to wars death toll
Can’t decide what’s real
I’ve played my last war game
Lifeless bones lay slain
All are left to dwell

Can’t aggress this living hell!

Reach your hand out to me
Bones of blood soothe me
The dead stands with might
Take their hands you’ve lost the fight

Hands Across the Void
Hands Across the Void

No more pain within
No more wars to win
No one left to die
Body’s filled the fields
Scent of death- unreal
All will die who fight
After all is said
After all are dead
Maybe then we’ll see
All the souls of man
Now are all-all damned
All shall die who fight

Soon you’ll see wars pointless fight!

Reach your hand out to me
Bones of blood soothe me
The dead stands with might
Take their hands you’ve lost the fight

Hands Across the Void
Hands Across the Void

Trapped inside this ghost
Thanks to wars death toll
Can’t decide what’s real
I’ve played my last war game
Lifeless bones lay slain
All are left to dwell

Can’t aggress this living hell!

Reach your hand out to me
Bones of blood soothe me
The dead stands with might
Take their hands you’ve lost the fight

Hands Across the Void
Hands Across the Void
Hands Across the Void
Hands Across the Void
