About the artist

Destructive Device, the new album from the Brazilian band MINDFLOW, is
more than just an album packed with socially critical ideology. It is a project
boiling over with aggressive lyrics and themes. The device is one of the clues,
the piece of a puzzle that lead to the discovery of an intricately woven web of
intrigue. While preserving the band's musical style and direction, the tracks take
on a more classic form without losing the band’s signature style, mixing young,
modern and innovative lyrics with the musical power and excellence of its
enigmatic members. Without limits or rules, the style is driven by the latent
energy of the group and its’ public, that may, track by track, reveal the secrets
of its disturbing design or transport the listener to places where only adrenalin
rules human actions.
Destructive Device was produced by Ben Grosse (Marilyn Mason, Slipknot,
Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Sevendust) and was recorded and mixed both in
Brazil and Los Angeles. As a producer that has pushed the boundaries with
countless other bands, Grosse recorded parts of the album (specifically the
bass, drums and keyboards) at "Mosh Studios" in Sao Paulo (one of the best in
Brazil), and moved the project to "The Mix Room" in Los Angeles where the
vocals, guitar and mixing were completed. Both highly successful sessions
were overseen every step of the way by the presence and sensitivity of Grosse.
The album is set for release in Brazil and Europe on May 31st with a U.S.
release date later in 2008.
Playing with the both the imagination and the listener's perception has been a
style that MindFlow have incorporated into their work since their formation in
2003, an event that was quickly followed by the release of the band's first
album "Just The Two Of Us... Me and Them" (2004). This album became
Heaven Cross Records’ No. 1 seller in Spain and went on to be released in
more than 60 countries worldwide, The band then embarked on its’ first world
tour, Let Your MindFlow.
In 2006, a new project, "Mind Over Body" was released and conceived as a
"Flow of Consciousnes”, thus moving beyond the body, the physical and the
real and exploring the imaginary and new ways to experience the sound. The
style evoked new sensations with each track, more than a ticket for a voyage of
self-discovery, it is an experiment of 80 minutes. For two consecutive months,
the album was amongst the Top 5 best selling rock albums in Brazil, Germany
and Spain and was considered the best progressive rock album of the year in
Brazil and the U.S. It was in this project that the first traces began to appear of
one the principal characters in the new web of intrigue. A sixth member of the
band, an “other,” a bringer of doubts and a harbinger of mysteries. A serial
killer, who, from his incarnation in the last album, will go on to coexist in a virtual
world, defying the deductions of the detectives on the trail of the most heinous
crimes against humanity.
The new edition of the Alternate Reality Game (ARG), "Follow Your Instinct" will
be released soon after the launch of Destructive Device. However, much persistence and dedication will be required to solve the new cases in less than
a year and two months. This is the time limit for the last mystery. During this
period, more than three thousand detectives will be mobilized and organized
into virtual communities until the final resolution of the cases.
Their success however, has not come by accident, but through the creativity
and experience of the group. Since 2004, MindFlow have completed two
European tours, one in Asia, and another in North America. They have made
appearances at many festivals such as the 2nd Duryu Rock and Sports Festival
in South Korea. In Spain, the group appeared at the Prog Metal Fest, a multi-
venue festival that visited four cities: Madrid, Palencia, Barcelona and Girona.
Still on the European scene, MindFlow played at the Metal Heart Festival in
Norway, at the Cambridge Rock Festival in England and performed at a show in
Belgium, Spirit of 66. In the United States alone, they have 10 more shows
under their belts, including the Monsters of Rock; the Texas Mad Festival; and
the Blastzone Festival. In Brazil, the group has appeared all over the country,
notching up shows at such important events as the Live'N'Louder Rock Fest
2006, at the Skol Area, Anhembi, Sao Paulo - Latin America's biggest rock
festival - and have already graced the stages of some of the best Brazilian
venues such as the Directv Music Hall (now the Citibank Music Hall), the Via
Funchal and the Victoria Hall.
Enough has been said to show that MindFlow has established contact with the
world. Now it seems that the time has come for mankind to discover the
enigmas, the aftermath and what really became of the "Destructive Device".

Lyrics

Both hands together
Put your face down on the floor!
Just kick your gun and
Don’t you dare to run!

(Chorus)

Hands on the wall!!
Distressing call
Just after violence
comes the dead and final ending of hope
Is it for God?
Is it for God?

To be the one in this world alone
Swept the room to find some peace and
The Meaning for this fearful war
Growing down the road

Both hands together
Put your face down on the floor!
Just kick your gun and
Don’t you dare to run!

(Chorus)

Hands on the wall!!
Distressing call
Just after violence
comes the dead and final ending of hope
Is it for God?
Is it for God?

Deceiving hope, closing doors
Building walls all over me
The more I wait, the more I long
to end this day and start again
Embrace this hollow world...

Both hands together
Put your face down on the floor!
Just kick your gun and
Don’t you…
Don`t you forget about your dark past!

(Chorus)

Hands on the wall!!
Distressing call
Just after violence
comes the dead and final ending of hope
Is it for God?
Is it for God?

The fate of all
Is save the world
From all the human race
Compel to live
Under an alias
For all the days
Of this endless life

Betraying our cause
Displaying guns and flaws

(Chorus)

Hands on the wall!!
Distressing call
Just after violence
comes the dead and final ending of hope
Is it for God?

Is it for God?
