Product Description

Chiodos has announced details of their new album Devil. The title is the first issued on the band's new imprint drk/lght records in partnership with Razor & Tie. The 13-track set finds founding front man Craig Owens and drummer Derrick Frost reunited with band members Bradley Bell, Pat Mcmanaman and Matt Goddard. The sessions also mark the first Chiodos album to feature lead guitarist Thomas Erak (The Fall Of Troy). The repertoire is characteristically dramatic and adventurous, and in asking Erak what drives the album to these heights, he exclaims, "Go big or go home!" "We''re trying to do things right, now," says Owens. "We had a lot of work to do, and what's different now is the way we communicate. Every once in awhile we catch ourselves getting into old habits, but we know how to deal with that now. We're more mature and know how to listen to one another and communicate. We're different people now, and that makes our experiences together different and working together different -- for the better. " Devil is produced by David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Stone Sour) and mixed by Josh Wilbur. Bell discusses the experience, "Working with both Botrill and Josh Wilbur who mixed the album was a blessing. Going into it I was a huge fan of their past work, and the sacrifices they made to work with us showed their dedication and true passion."

I am a big fan of the first two Chiodos albums so was very excited to hear Craig Owens was returning for this album. I was not disappointed. The album is filled with the things that I loved about the previous albums, heavy riffs, awesome vocals (both screaming and not). and really random bits! There is a slightly more mature side to it, with Craig's matured, slightly lower vocals, and I can hear a lot of D.R.U.G.S in some of the songs (which I am very happy with). The vocals have a lot more range than the earlier albums. The songs that do not contain any screams were a really pleasant surprise, with a few really beautiful ones (Under your Halo in particular). If you like their early stuff you should get a lot out of enjoyment this, and hopefully like the progression this album has made.

It's Great as Individual Parts but Devil is a Disjointed Whole 13 April 2014
By L. J. Rott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With Craig Owens back at the helm you'd probably expect some of his work from the last few years to rub off on Chiodos and that's certainly true. Devil has much of the familiar Chiodos sound blended with a healthy dose of poppier sensibilities that were prevalent on D.R.U.G.S.' album. Old school fans will be pleased with songs like "Why the Munsters Matter" and "Expensive Conversations in Cheap Motels" that stand in stark contrast with all-clean songs like "3 AM" and "Under Your Halo" that are poppy enough to appear on any alternative rock station. Add tracks like the in-your-face "Behvis Bullock" and moody "Duct Tape" and you've got a wide range of enjoyable songs.

This wide range is my main problem with the album, however. It has a lot of great individual parts, but I struggle to see how they musically form a cohesive unit (lyrically it is very clear). If you don't mind a disjointed listening experience Devil is a tremendous effort, but since it bounces between styles so frequently I can't quite put it up in the echelon of the greatest of albums.

The main positive that stood out to me was how much better Craig Owens' voice has become since Bone Palace Ballet. Some past songs like "We Swam From Albatross" were near-unlistenable for me due to Craig's straining but he's pretty tremendous throughout every song on Devil. They've definitely got a bright future ahead.

Absolutely Perfect 1 April 2014
By Alicia Valdez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was a fan since I first heard those high pitched, girly vocals from one of my favorite frontmen Craig owens off their first album. All's Well That Ends Well was a classic. No Doubt about that, but then came Bone Pallace Ballet. Melodical, theatrical, heavy, everything I wasn't expecting from their sophomore album. That album came together so perfectly and you could just feel the passion oozing from your speakers.
Now on to Devil. It did not disappoint. Not one bit. There was not a single song I didnt enjoy. The best way I could put it is if you take the absolute best from those two albums, put them together and sprinkle a much more seasoned vocalist, then you have Devil. Don't second guess this album. Hearing the original band, (Im aware of the new guitarist) especially drummer and vocalist, brought a tear to my eye. Chiodos is back and has never been better. Hats off to these men. Now go buy the album!!!

They Just Keep Getting Better 1 April 2014
By InkyDinkyDude - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ok... I'm biased. Craig Owens could fart America the Beautiful and I would consider it perfection. But in all seriousness, this band deserves to be heard and recognized by the masses. The songwriting on this album is amazing. Musically and lyrically, they have reached new heights and have released a CD that I cannot stop listening to. The diversity and emotion displayed throughout is something to be admired. The only problem with this release is that I already want more.

Their best yet 5 April 2014
By Midway 47 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This album has all of the best qualities of previous Chiodos albums and is everything I had hoped for. I think Craig Owens made a triumphant return as frontman but it's the music that really does it for me. Afterall, I liked Illuminaudio just fine without Owens. He does add a little extra in terms of classic Chiodos sound so it's probably best that he's on the album. As far as the band members, their personal problems still aren't completely gone but I hope they work it out so it's not a short-lived reunion. I'd hate to have to wait too long for a follow-up album. They do a great job of placing the heavy parts sparingly and just where they have the most impact. Musically, it feels like all the parts were worked out just right to give a rise and fall of emotion and compliment each other. It's easy to get lost in the melody and then get slammed with aggression in a way that goes beyond previous Chiodos albums. Many parts surprised me at how strong and impacting they were. It's a great mix of range and styles and a truly grand return for both Owens and the rest of the band. The album also features the production of David Bottrill and a new guitar player, ex-Fall of Troy.
Best CD ever 21 Jun 2014

This is the first cd I've bought in about ten years and I was not disappointed. It's a great cd the whole way through. I've always LOVED chiodos, but I think this is their best album.
