about

Devin Vibert London, Ontario

When Devin was eleven he wrote a twelve-minute orchestral epic about the imaginary adventures his cat Ashes went on when he wasn't around.

It wasn't the best subject matter, but it got the ball rolling.

Devin is the musical director for Silverstring Media, working out of his project studio in London, Ontario. He is constantly trying to one-up his own creations with new, bolder musical feats.

Track Name: Elegy of the Twilight Prince
I come from the waste
The outcast
I come through the shadow and dust
The twilight of the west
I wander
I don’t belong, never allowed to rest
Fate is forever, I’m marked for my sins
I serve only the Queen, myself, and the wind

The world’s at my feet
I have everywhere to be
And nowhere to go

Your feet are heavy
You tire
I come through the shadow and sand
From the twilight of the end
To find you
To take you away from your land
You know that it’s come, the end that you fear
He comes, I follow, the Queen’s Land is near

The world’s at my feet
I have everywhere to be
And nowhere to go

I’ll never find rest
But I’ll take you to yours
A rest without sleep
Lost but ever onwards
Your journey’s not done
Your time’s just begun
For the end of all things
Is not the end of all things

Take your first step.
You are new.
Reborn.
The journey doesn’t end, it never ends.
I have wandered the worlds
For eons.
Outcast.
It never ends. Never ends.
Infinity stretches before us, a hand in the dark.
In the shadow.
Take it. Let it guide. Follow. Eyes open
Wide.
We are outcast. We wander forever.
It never ends.
And I wouldn’t want it to.

The world’s at your feet
You have nowhere to be
The world’s at my feet
I have everywhere to be
And nowhere to go.
Track Name: The Dragonwalk March
Take note, my lads, of stories past, the place from whence we came
The fight for freedom that would last, the men who forged our name
Take note, my lads, where it began, the Hand that held us down
Of Kalith, Delhon, the rebel clan who broke the tyrant’s crown

March on, my kin, march through the starless night
March on, for peace, for peace we walk, for freedom we will fight

Take stock, my lads, the lords since seen, who each upheld our way
The land where elves have never been, where none will rule a day
Take in, my lads, the Dragonwalk, the wilds and lands we’ve tamed
Where kingdoms joined in steel and rock, where we have forged our name

March on, my kin, march through the starless night
March on, for peace, for peace we walk, for freedom we will fight

Take all, my lads, the freedoms earned, we marched from peak to sea
Though nations at our borders burn to see us live so free
Take rest, my lads, we’ll march again, we’ll not forget the past
Our brothers do not die in vain, our freedom shall outlast

March on, my kin, march through the starless night
March on, for peace, for peace we walk, for freedom we will fight!
Track Name: Ballad of a New Dawn
When magic thrived and men were young
Our kingdoms spread across the land
When dragon dreams told of a time
The stars numbered like grains of sand

A darkness came to end our peace
The daughter took arms against the son
And so when darker Void appeared
We could not see, we could not run

When stars fall, the night is long
When stars fall, she’ll bring the dawn

The madness spoke, the magus heard
And brought to him the house of eight
Though darkness spread across the land
Seven houses were consumed by hate

Till she appeared, from humble starts
Her blood run weak from lands of men
And yet in her blood still burned
The ancient royal that would ascend

When stars fall, the night is long
When stars fall, she’ll bring the dawn

Through trials long and battles fierce
She made her mark upon the sky
Gabriasien Half-Elf, with her light
Brought the seven eye to eye

Though the past had shackled them
Had made the daughter fight the son
Gabriasien made them see
The past was past; the dark had come

When stars fall, the night is long
When stars fall, she’ll bring the dawn

United in their common need
Like waves they crashed upon their foe
With hope and promise together fought
Led by the Queen of Light, aglow

And so through time, though kingdoms fall
Though daughter may have fought the son
An enemy can be a friend
And together we can greet the sun

When stars fall, the night is long
When stars fall, she’ll bring the dawn.
Track Name: But For Friends
Everybody has a story
Some are darker than the rest
Everybody has a tale of how
Life has put them to the test
Your story is no different,
You've weathered bitter wind
A curse is on your family,
And you're finally at the end

The lights grow dim around you
Surrounded by your ghosts
You've lost a friend, you're hopeless
No strength to stand, supported by nobody else

Someone told me you're an orphan
That you grew up on the street
That you're judged by each and
Every other person that you meet
So you've locked yourself away for good
And you've thrown away the key
But I know that somewhere deep inside
You wait to be set free

When the lights go dim around you
Surround yourself with kin
'Cause but for friends, you're hopeless
But for friends, you're nothing but ash on the wind

But for friends, but for friends

Everybody has a story
Some are darker than the rest
Everybody has a tale of how
Life has put them to the test
But your story is no different
Than a hundred souls before
And the time is ripe for you to try
And live a little more

When lights go dim around you
Surround yourself with kin
'Cause but for friends, you're hopeless
But for friends, you're nothing but ash on the wind

But for friends, but for friends
