My Favorite 10 The Devil Wears Prada Songs
The Devil Wears Prada is a band that is very distinctive in that no one sounds like them. Mike Hranica’s vocals are brutal! His high screams and low growls make him one of the best vocalists I’ve ever heard. Mix that with their amazing guitar work and drums and your ears will thank you! TDWP is solid in their breakdowns and lyrics. They have written some seriously good stuff and if you haven’t listened to much of them then you are most definitely missing out. Quick side note: all of my favorites songs come from the first 4 albums and the Zombie EP, so I will be leaving out “8:18”. 8:18 is a good album but my favorite songs are not on that one. Here are my favorite 10 songs by TDWP and some lyrics for each!
10. Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over, Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord
Favorite Lyric – “Don't be ashamed of your faith. Dear Lord, deliver me from hypocrisy and surcease the scarlet desire.”
9. Hold Fast, Dead Throne
Favorite Lyric – “No... I don’t plan on going anywhere without you. Holdfast! Holdfast! Holdfast! My body was meant to rot, but these words will never pass. Bless the Lord, oh my soul, for these words will never pass.”
8. Vengeance, Dead Throne
Favorite Lyric - God as my witness, there will be no love lost. This is my vengeance: from here on out its no regrets. You are my sickness: I gave it all my very best. This is my vengeance: from here on out its no regrets. You are my sickness: I gave it all my very best, my very best!”
7. Louder Than Thunder, With Roots Above And Branches Below
Favorite Lyric – “I don't think I deserve it. Selflessness, find your way into my heart. All stars could be brighter. All hearts could be warmer. What would it take for things to be quiet? Find your way into my heart.”
6. Born To Lose, Dead Throne
Favorite Lyric – “Blessed be those who have no idols. Invoke holy honor, sanctify the patient. I don't see the world the same. I'm no one's hero, so just forget my name. I abhor you with every foolish thing that you say. None of it is worth the time, another meaningless war.”
5. Dead Throne, Dead Throne
Favorite Lyric – “What you hold dear is a false account. What you hold dear offers no salvation (salvation). Trust in that I’m not right for this (for this). Know that I’m not the one to hold you up (hold you up). I can’t hold you! I can’t hold you! Dead throne (dead throne), we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne. Dead throne (dead throne), we’ve put the world up onto a dead throne.”
4. Outnumbered, Zombie EP
Favorite Lyric – “In a sea of stinking rot, in a place where living humans are no longer the hunters, all the money in the world won't satisfy the enemy! Hunted! Hunted! Hunted! Hunted!”
3. Sassafras, With Roots Above And Branches Below
Favorite Lyric – “This is the faith complex. Try not to write another disappointing letter to integrity. Only go faster when you've stopped and thought. Only go slower when you've learned of wisdom.”
2. Hey John What’s Your Name Again, Plagues
Favorite Lyric – “I'm going to hope for you. I'm going to pray for you amongst the reckless and the black. Salvation lies within. I'm going to hope for you. I'm going to pray for you amongst the reckless and the black. My time is yours my friend.”
1. Danger: Wildman, With Roots Above And Branches Below
This song has always been my favorite. It does not hold back on speaking truth. People refuse to listen to truth in God’s word and stay “attached to their deaf ears.” Only until one opens their heart and mind to what God wants for them will they ever find peace. The world brings chaos. God brings peace in the midst of that chaos.
Favorite Lyric – “When worded correctly, truth is never a cliché. This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears. All mistakes can be marked by borders. All of love can be traced to a Maker. It seems as if what is most important, isn't noticed when forgotten. Do as you please, shame will fallow. Do as you please and shame will follow. The sun and the moon, you’ll always take them for granted. What's delicate is lost. As the selfish forgot what is sacred, the humble forgot themselves.”
TDWP is one of those bands that needs to be in your metal collection if not already! They are very unique in their writing style and they are chalk full of heavy breakdowns, clean vocals, and awesome guitar work/drumming too!
