Welcome welcome welcome Welcome to the Holy Day Brother brother brother Sister sister sister You must be certain of the Devil On the Holy Day You must be certain on the Holy Day. The flies are coming, mother And the end of the day The flies are coming, daddy To steal my soul away The flies are coming, sister Serve your brother while you may Welcome to the Holy Day Welcome to the Holy Da. Scatter them by thy power and break Their teeth, O God, in their mouth: BREAK OUT THE GREAT TEETH OF THE YOUNG LIONS, O LORD AND WHEN HE BENDETH HIS BOW TO SHOOT HIS ARROWS, LET THEM BE CUT AS IN PEACES! Bring them down, O Lord, our Shield.

Originally issued as a 45 rpm 12" on Restless Records, You Must Be Certain of the Devil was, at the time, Galas' most song-oriented and rockish release and would remain so until her collaboration with John Paul Jones. Though inconsistent, at its best it reveals her as a remarkably strong and effective regular singer (if that term may ever be applied to her), delivering bluesy, hook-filled songs with drive and conviction. PJ Harvey fans might find this album especially revelatory.

This meant that 1988's You Must Be Certain of the Devil would be quite the departure for Galas, as she went in a more traditional music direction while her screams and howls remained intact. While it isn't a bad album, it is mostly a disappointment compared to her other albums, but it does have a number of notable highlights. If anybody recognizes this album, it's mostly because of he controversy surrounding "Double Barrel Prayer". Said song had a music video that was banned from MuchMusic and was named by MTV as "most offensive music video of the year".

You Must Be Certain of the Devil is the third instalment of Galas' Masque of the Red Death trilogy. But the music couldn't be more different then each of the preceding chapters

The Singer is an album by Diamanda Galás released in 1992, largely featuring her versions of classic blues and gospel songs.

The album is dedicated to people with AIDS, as is much of her work. My Love Will Never Die" (Willie Dixon). Reap What You Sow" (Mike Bloomfield, Nick Gravenites).
