Down with the DevilToday this Song Review: Down with the Devil by Taming Sari

Review by: Walter and Darlene Hargrave

“Taming Sari is a 5 piece Ottawa based band. Driven by a passion to breathe new life into the genre known as Rock and Roll.” @taming_sariband

 

I want to say up front that Taming Sari has succeeded in breathing new life to Rock and Roll!  I hear influences of Rush, Aerosmith, Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC, and more.  Taming Sari’s rich sound, mature lyrics and passionate vocal content combined, makes their song, “Down with the Devil,” instantly likable and radio friendly.

As mature adults, my wife and I could certainly relate to the lyrics, which is about a long-time relationship gone wrong. The story could be about a long-lasting love affair where mistakes were made early (“breaking all the rules”), it is too late to save the relationship and neither want to. Bring on the pain. The couple confront one another and get “down with the devil and out with the lies.”  As a teen from the ‘70’s, I say “Taming Sari” has the retro sound that manages to encompass both the past and present, simultaneously.

There is nothing not to like about the song if you’re a Rock and Roll fan! Check out the great video below!

Down with the Devil Lyrics

She said straighten up soldier
Instead of playing a fool
We got no time to waste
We’re getting older
We broke all the rules

You say you wanna change the way I live
You say you got nothin’ left to give
I never said it would be easy
I never said it would be fun
But if you know that your the only lover
Oh, you’re not the only one, not the only one

Down with the devil, out with the lies
You’ve got to get away but you’ve no where to hide
Down with the devil, out with the lies
Got to get away .. nowhere to hide

I oughta pack up and leave now
Instead of losing my cool
There’s only been bad blood between us
You’re so jaded and cruel

You say you wanna change the way I live
You say you got nothin’ left to give
I never said it would be easy
I never said it would be fun

But if you know that your the only lover
Oh, you’re not the only one, not the only one
Got to get away .. nowhere to hide
Hide, hide, hide, hide oh yeah, oh yeah

I never said it would be easy
I never said it would be fun
But if you know that your the only lover
Oh, you’re not the only one

Down with the devil, out with the lies
You’ve got to get away but you’ve nowhere to hide
Down with the devil, out with the lies
You’ve got to get away but you’ve nowhere to hide
