about

Formed in Lakewood, Ohio in 1993 lead guitarist Joe Mitchell, vocalist and rhythm guitarist Jon Pamblanco with rhythm section Eric Harmon on bass and drummer Tom Wiseman.

The band would waste no time getting to working on making MIDEVIL one of the best-known bands in Ohio through the 90s. In ‘95 the band would record a release a 4-song demo before seeing a lineup change with the departure of Wiseman and Harmon. Bassist Scott Vesely and drummer Eugene Plascak would be recruited to replace them from members.

In 1996 MIDEVIL would record and release their debut full-length album “Thee Almighty” The band’s reputation would then begin to grow rapidly in their local area and began to spread outwards. MIDEVIL would also support many of the national acts touring through Ohio such as Testament, The Misfits, Megadeth, King Diamond, and Dio. This one only helped the band’s exposure.

Track Name: The Sound of Infinity II
The Sounds of Infinity II
(Instrumental- Vesely, Pamblanco)
Track Name: My Sanity
My Sanity
(Pamblanco, Mitchell)

Tell me something
What’s wrong with my mind?
This is my life
Or is it a sign?
Now lie back- I’ll tell
You the stories of past
You’ll yell “get away”
And you’ll call me outcast
Outcast!

Secretly afraid
That my dreams will fade away
Can’t hide what’s inside
Have to keep my inner pride

God please help me- Help my sanity

Seeking to find
Something besides hate
It’s destroying my mind
It’s God given fate
Yes I will fight
I’ll never give in
I know what is right
I know I can win
I’ll win!

Secretly afraid
That my dreams will fade away
Can’t hide what’s inside
Have to keep my inner pride
Now I stand in awe
As my values take their fall
Thee end is soon here
My insanity is clear

God please help me- Help my sanity

Lost- what is left of my mind
Thoughts - are warping more in time
Feel- like i’m lost in this place
Life- has vanished with no trace
Track Name: Thee Almighty
Thee Almighty
(Mitchell, Pamblanco)

Over time, the evil reigned
To take immoral, to their domain
Ordered to, exterminate
The evil doers, of our race
Hallows eve, this is the day
When all the living, all should pray
Their lives to save, their souls to keep
Chilling night, moonlight gleams
Howling wind through the trees
Calling out to your name
As you hide your face in shame
The evil will not go away
Until all the sinners pay
The price they owe to mankind
For their demise, is what they’ll find!

Your soul belongs to the fire
It’s time to face his desire
Mankind treads in fear
Thee Almighty is near

Wretched figures, of the night
Through their eyes, shines deadly bright
Stalking down, they prey they seek
Lashing out a terror shriek
Spirits dressed in black attire
Floating over a lake of fire
Dragged down into hell you’ll see
Where afterlife is misery

(Chorus)
Your soul belongs to the fire
It’s time to face his desire
Mankind treads in fear
Thee Almighty is here
You can’t hide from the pain
Adrenaline of thee insane

It’s time to face your fears
Thee Almighty is here

Cross the evil River Styx
Into a place, called the abyss
Dark and silence all around
Eerie feeling, not a sound
Inferno region of the dead
You should have listened to what they said
Crack the skull, break the bone
Slave to death, forevermore

(Repeat Chorus)

It’s time to face your fears
Thee Almighty is here
Track Name: Life's Casualties
Life’s Casualties
(Mitchell, Pamblanco, Vesely, Plascak)
(Piano Intro- Vesely)

God take me
Life’s played its own role
I can’t see
I been to hell
And I’d like to go
Can’t stand the wait
Take my soul

Days are like years
Someone help me
I have fears
I need to smell the fresh air
And rid of all my scars
I need to see the day
For one glimpse I’d pay

The time is near
Now I bow my head
No longer fear
No longer dread
I’ve lived a life
Of hard earned pain
My body breathes
My mind is slain

God take me
Life’s played its own role
I can’t see
I been to hell
And I’d like to go
Can’t stand the wait
Take my soul
Track Name: Funky and the Chicken
Funky and the Melon
(Pamblanco, Athey, Hegarty)

Funky and the melon
Happy as can be!
Funky and the melon
Happy family
Funky and the melon
Happy as can be!
Funky and the melon
Happy family
Track Name: Sign of the Times
Sign of the Times
(Pamblanco)

He is now here
No place to hide
World stands in fear
Our children will die
The sky turns red
The air turns thin
The mouth of hell
Opens to sing
Fuck this whole world!
I hate this place
Murder and crime
Our planets- fate!

(Chorus)
Now look
Into his eyes
And realize
This is a sign of the times
We all must obey
Or we will pay
These are the signs of the times

Power corrupts
It warps your mind
Soon you’ll forget
What’s wrong, what’s right

Why can’t we stop
Why don’t we see
The people we hurt
It’s just you and me
I am opposed
It can’t end this way
Murder and crime
Our planets- Fate!

(Repeat Chorus)

He is now here
No place to hide
World stands in fear
Our children will die
The sky turns red
The air turns thin
The mouth of hell
Opens to sing
Fuck this whole world!
I hate this place
Murder and crime
Our planets- fate!

(Repeat Chorus)

We must obey
The sign of the times

Never again
The sign of the times
Track Name: Sinbound
Sinbound
(Pamblanco, Mitchell)

Pain…
Laughing, crying,
Screaming, Dying
Hate…
Chosen one is soon arriving
Why…
Live your life in utmost fear
Shape…
Shape your life for death draws near

Burning souls now thrash you down
Spirits flaunt their blackened crowns
Soon the time will bring you down
Sinbound

Fear…
Try to show your not afraid
Laugh…
They laugh at our constructed pain
Kill…
It seems to be the only word they know
Lies and death will now unfold
Track Name: The Red Purple Didi ups
The Red-Purple Didi-Up’s
(Pamblanco, Pooley)

We are the Red-Purple Didi- Ups
We like to share
Track Name: Last Breath
Last Breath
(Pamblanco)

I am insane
I need you so bad
You are my God
You pump in my veins
You make me feel warth
You are my life
Late in the night
My arm goes in pain
Can’t win this fight
I’ll steal what’s yours
To get what I need
And you ask me why?
My arm must feed…

Bothering my mind
Waiting for the end of time
Seems there’s nothing left
It’s time for my-
Last breath

Look into my eyes
What do you find?
What can you see?
I once was a boy
I once lived a life
And once I was free…
Now I don’t care
Inject it right here
My new IV
Death’s in the air
Fuck if I care!?
I got what I need
My arm must feed…

(Chorus)
Bothering my mind
Waiting for the end of time
Seems there’s nothing left
It’s time for my-
Last breath

Dying with every breath
The only way out is death
Can’t stop this feeling inside
Slowly decaying my mind
Mind!

I am insane
I need you so bad
You are my God
You pump in my veins
You make me feel warth
You are my life
Late in the night
My arm goes in pain
Can’t win this fight
I’ll steal what’s yours
To get what I need
And you ask me why?
My arm must feed…

(Repeat Chorus)
