    From the Big John Bates LP "Skinners Cage" on Frontman Records / Rookie Records (2019)

    All the Devils is the opening track and first video from the new Big John Bates LP “Skinners Cage”. The song is a ragged rocker but instead of a hyper-amped guitar, an insane violin drives the track. The video was shot in a mad grindshow-style that compliments the B-movie spookiness of the track and sets the mood for the entire album.

    Director - Jeevin Johal & Quintus Kannegiesser
    Editor - Tom Belding & Quintus Kannegiesser
    Cinematographers - Greg Czaplak and Tom Belding
    Costume Designer - Mikaela Finding
    Produced by Whole Wheat Films in conjunction with Quintus Kannegiesser
    Special thanks to Dark Manor (Vancouver) and to Jeff Barrett for the '69 Cougar and to the Hamburger Labelförderung!

    All The Devils

    I shiver by the river on the banks of disapproval
    Your worthy book is dirty from lying on the earth
    A shallow night is not a light - don’t call me brother
    The air was still as darkness at your birth
    And the ember slowly dies - black the heaven’s holy eye

    The poison’s in the skin - a heart gone cold as iron
    Riding on a tattered soul broken spirits fly
    Screaming at the sky is an eye of serpent’s fire
    While you beat a truth that wasn’t born alive
    Black the heaven’s holy eye
    All the devils start to ri-i-i-ise - All the devils in hell

    Now my darkest dreams seem to taste of ozone lightning
    Flies fall from your caul and crawl across the floor
    Breathing it comes easy and makes me feel like fighting
    The steel in my spine tells me what I can’t ignore
    Black the heaven’s holy eye
    All the devils start to ri-i-i-ise - All the devils in hell Show less
