about

Four years is a lot of time, especially without a new record. But just in case you’re wondering the past four years in the life of Dávid Makó, the Hungarian singer-songwriter known as The Devil’s Trade have been an intense journey. After "Those Miles We Walked Alone", his debut full-length saw the light of day in November 2014, not even himself had an idea of the path he is about to take.

Four years is a lot time, especially if you spend it sitting by idly. Now
that’s not something that is one of Makó’s fortes, as he spent this long period of time evolving into the artist that he is now. From his self-financed CDRs to a sold out first press of the vinyl version of Those Miles, from his first show as a solo artist at a small venue, playing in between a couple horrible tribute bands to the stages of Europe, touring with the likes of Crippled Black Phoenix and Nathan Gray Collective among many, Makó is summoned a different kind of beast. So does he on his sophomore album What Happened To The Little Blind Crow.

Makó, who spends his days changing people’s lives and improving their health as a strength trainer, bares his soul on stage and offers a piece of himself night by night and despite the “rough-around-theedges” look, intimacy, despair and hope never sounded this heartfelt and sincere. Written in nearly every corner of Europe on tourbusses, in tour vans, in the rehearsal space back home, What Happened To The Little Blind Crow is the next step in a wonderful journey. From traditional and heartbreaking Transylvanian folk, through Makó’s roots as a doom / stoner singer to the spirits of the Appalachians, this fulllength is the manifestation of an artist ever growing, ever evolving and adapting.

Track Name: To An End
I wanna lay here I want to stay
Before this World goes down
Let this dawn stay sane
As I can sense this all comes to an end
The one you’ve been afraid of
And for what I have prepared

Don’t fear such inventions like hell
But if I’m wrong we all will meet soon there

Stare into the unknown what would you see
Every breath you hold back paralyzed by fear
Is a failed chance to be one with the void
It’s time to wake up and see the downfall
Track Name: Your Own Hell
I’m not birds flying free
Not clouds in the sky
Not the water or the flow
Not the river I am its side

I’ve been formed this way
Been flooded then left alone
I’m the things you’re too weak to hold
I’m the wreckage and the stones

And I don’t reflect the sun
It’s only the moon and stars shine bright on this side
Whenever you return
I’m gonna hold your hand
And guide you through your own hell

As these piles of bones
Breaking the light
Like zoetropes recall
all you tried to hide

Your childhood dreams
Your wasted time
Your bones will be washed
away with the tide
Track Name: Only As A Ghost
It’s so good to have you here
Your warm tears on my skin
Your shadow to have me in
Your heavy steps on the leaves

The leaves that gave their lives
When sun sang you’d come
And bring chimney smoke and the love that brings
Peace to my heart

There there I know you’re there
On the mountain girl
Where the seagulls sing for the glacier
You wait for my return

My return may never come
My war may never end
What I did and what I saw
Salted earth will tell

Who went away is gone exists no more
Only as a ghost can only haunt
Finding no way home
Track Name: St. James Hospital
Early one morning at the St James Hospital
Early one morning morn in the month of May
When I looked through the window
And I spy the dear outlaw
A dear outlaw he was cold as the clay

Set here down by me and hear my sad story
Set here down by me and sign me my song
For my poor head is aching and my sad heart is breaking
I’m a poor outlaw that knowed he done wrong

Send for the doctor to come and heal up my body
Send for the preacher to come and pray for my soul
For my poor head is aching and my sad heart is breaking
I’m a poor outlaw and hell is my doom

Get sixteen pretty maiden to come and carry my coffin
Get sixteen pretty maiden to come and sing me my song
And tell ‘em to bring some o’them sweet smelling roses
So they can’t smell me as they carry me along

Beat the drums slowly and play the fife lowly
Play the death march as they carry me along
throw bunches of lilies all over my coffin
There goes a poor outlaw and hell is my doom
Track Name: No One Here
Cool wind swam on crushed sunlight
Breeze, chilled heart and the music died
Not one soul could make a move
Only the rain danced on

And no one here heard them singing
And no one knows the way they sang
And what they sang about

The rain falls on it came to stay
To wash their signs and the memories away
The drops tap rhythm yet they are gone
Not green but the water grows above all

And no one here saw them dancing
And no one knows the way they danced when they were sad
And they were loved
Track Name: 12 To Die 6 To Rise
I’ve been singing through the dark in me to find
Peace and calm down the fear of the light outside
I’ve been screaming through the light outside to find
Anyone to fight to set this world on fire

Here I don’t belong this world ain’t mine
I’d rather be alone than blinded in this light
Where we are parallels running out of time

Only rhythm no time with the shapeless friends of mine
Surround me I see with your eyes what’s left and not right
And only inward means free the spiral grows into the within
Through the 12 to die through the 6 to rise
Track Name: I Can Slow Down Time Pt. 2
This here will be gone as soon as the day goes by
Will be lost in the grey sun but before this World comes down
I can slow down time

Higher than the hills lower than the stars
If not amongst the trees then where the river runs
We’ll meet again for one last time before this World comes down
