Biography

Driven by massive sounding arrangements and fierce vocals, Deus Machina delivers a powerful yet vulnerable sound that demands attention and engages the audience's emotions.

Deus Machina was started as solo project by Jeremy Lee. He started by writing, recording, playing, singing, and producing every aspect of the music himself. Motivated by the need to create, he sought out to write the best songs possible that could translate his feelings to specific fanbases and radio listeners alike. After completing numerous songs on his own, Jeremy brought in guitarist Christian Brown to help solidify his vision. Christian brought a unique style of guitar playing and a strong sense of melody which provided balance for Jeremy's vision and work ethic. Once enough material surfaced, Jeremy began purchasing equipment and assembling a band for live performance.

The live band is made up of Jeremy Lee, Nathan Lee, Christian Brown, and Abi Putra. Nathan is an extremely dedicated drummer that plays and writes with numerous instruments. Abi Putra excels on the stage and in the studio and his energy has been a key to the success of Deus Machina's live shows. Since their addition, Abi and Nathan have offered valuable insight and have been very helpful additions to the writing process. Once the band was complete, the songs were reconstructed for live shows. The band's success in this effort and their ability to transfer that energy live has helped solidify Jeremy and the band members confidence in the future of Deus Machina.

The track Syzygy has consistently received good reviews after airplay on Clear Channels 94.5 The Buzz in Houston. Dj Zakk United contacted Jeremy to inform him that Syzygy received the best response ever on Zakks weekly show, The Texas Buzz. This was important, because it was essential to write good enough songs that reflected Jeremy's state of mind and at the same time translated to the general public.
In addition to writing new material in their studio, Deus Machina has recently opened for national acts such as Black Light Burns, Fair to Midland, and Powerman 5000 . With a dedication to working tirelessly on new music and promoting themselves consistently and intelligently, Deus Machina is looking to make some big moves in the next year.

Lyrics

Demiurge

Written By: Jeremy Lee

Follow Endure
This loneliness
My state of emotions
Has gotten me
Searching for someone to see me
For who I really am in here
I sold my soul you can’t save me
The demiurge has played me for a fool
He can be so cruel
I need you to

Guide my Way
Guide my Way

Stake My claim
In faith again
My ignorance and fear is shrouding me
From this relief
Won’t bring me peace
Unless I’m willing to let go of you
I need you
I need you to
I need you
I need you to

Stand in the line
I feel asinine
I feel so shallow with you
Fueled by the lies
You lodged in my mind
I wait cause I still need
I need you to
Guide my Way
Guide my Way

No need for you anymore
No need for me to find out
Why you had to fake your way
Get in my way
Then Fade away

I’m searching for some peace while
I prepare for war
I prepare for war
I prepare for war
I prepare for war

I need you to
Guide My Way
Guide My way
I keep falling into pieces
I keep falling into pieces
I keep falling into pieces
Yes I’m falling into pieces

Intentional

Written By: Jeremy Lee

Sea of sorrow
Is seething deep inside of me
She’s clouding my mind
She wants to surround me because

You stripped me down
And you burned me alive
Stole my soul and you tortured my mind
You left me with all of your lies
So fuck you and all of your lies

Intentional tension has created a corpse in me
This disease keeps spreading so quickly
Must give this up so you can
Feel this anger inside of me
Feel the evil engulf me
Feel this emptiness

I turn around
I see the light
It’s shining through me
It’s shining in me
I think I have the answer

Intentional tension has created a corpse in me
This disease keeps spreading so quickly
Must give this up so you can
Feel this anger inside of me
Feel the evil engulf me
Feel this emptiness

You can’t use me
You can’t take me

Intentional tension has created a corpse in me
This disease keeps spreading so quickly
Must give this up so you can
Feel this anger inside of me
Feel my dark half besiege me
Feel this emptiness

Syzygy

Written By: Jeremy Lee

Cannot choose between two sides easily
Just might lose my faith, my soul, my integrity

But I don’t want you to
Put me down in this hole again
Down want to see this place in my soul again, no

Don’t you suffocate me
No way out
Look at me in my eyes
You and me syzygy deep inside of me
I cannot and will not play this game that you need

Oh you know you can’t take this away from me now
Steal it away from me
I’ll take what I am given now, yes now

Cannot choose between two sides easily
Just might lose my faith, my soul, my integrity

But I don’t want you to
Put me down in this hole again
Down want to see this place in my soul again, no

Don’t you suffocate me
No way out
Look at me in my eyes
You and me syzygy deep inside of me
I cannot and will not play this game that you need

So in this state of mind I pray
For this embrace
So let go

Cannot stay, will not stay
Force me to run away from you

Run away, get far away from you

Backstabber

Written By: Jeremy Lee

Steal it away
From behind this
Shrouded mind my enemy
What you don't know what hurt you
What I know can help me

The golden key I passed onto
Opened the door they all came through
So I've got to get away from you

I wanna know why
It's been such a long time coming
I wanna know why
this shit consumes me
Why this pain eludes me
Open my mind to find
the source of all this pain

Take it away take it away
Got to take it away Take it away
Got to take it away Take it away

Out of sight becomes
Out of my mind
Buried alive I dig my
claws into my skin
To find my way out
to the blinding light
Here I am again
In this place again
On the edge I'm losing faith
I cannot take this any longer

I wanna know why
It's been such a long time coming
I wanna know why
this shit consumes me
Why this pain eludes me
Open my mind to find
the source of all this pain

You've been using me time and time again.
Take it away take it away
Got to take it away Take it away
Got to take it away Take it away

You've got to help me
You've got to help me
You've got to help me.
