Devildriver's debut is a seriously underrated album. I can remember at the time reviews were not kind about the band and most magazines only cared about the fact that their singer Dez Farara used to be in the much less heavy band Coal Chamber. Years of hard work and consistently good songwriting has slowly won over larger and larger sections of the metal community until now they are simply a fact of life, a well respected metal institution.
This album isn't the most indicative of the band's overall sound as newer albums have saw more melo-death influences find their way into the bands sound after primary songwriter Evan Pitts left the band, however there is still enough similarities in style that if you have heard their newer work you will still find this album enjoyable. The thing that people are now realising is that the band are just good songwriters and this album is full of absolute corkers.
Tracks like "Cry for Me Sky (Eulogy of the Scorned)" and "The Mountain" along with live circle pit favourite "Meet the Wretched" are still some of the best songs in the bands increasingly impressive catolougue.
This album is very groove orientated, with parts of the album sharing a surprising amount in common with more respected bands like Lamb of God than people would've liked to admit at the time, mixed with some almost black metal style riffs hidden here and there in songs to spice things up.
There are a few out of place, but extremely welcome numbers on the album that are just really short, fast and aggressive songs with primarily extreme metal riffs, such as "Die (And Die Now)" and opener "Nothing's Wrong?" that keep things very interesting, especially on an album that at the time got accused of one dimensionality.

I first heard devil driver on the Freddy vs. Jason Soundtrack with the spooky skull cracking goodness of 'swinging the dead' and straight off I was hooked. I was never really a big fan of Coal Chamber but more in that 'I have no real opinion' category so I welcomed this offering from their former lead vocalist without any previous bias. It's got this kind of jumpy groove that's heavy as hell but still hugely listenable and bouncy. This isn't black metal for those looking for some Dimmu Borgir, Mayhem or Nokturnal Mortum style madness, so don't go expecting to shock your parents or impress your mindless little buddies with how 'dark' and ' evil' this is - it's just heavy growling metal with some of the most enjoyable lyrics and grooves the genre has had to offer for a long old time!

This is a great album, a great metal album.The groove is unbeatable, its upbeat and in your face.

But to the guy who goes on about BM i say, wise up.This is not BM or is it Grindcore and it is most certainly not NU-Metal or pop, this is GROOVE metal at its best.

To any body who does not like it or claims they dont like it because its "POP" i would suggest a good long look in the mirror, while i laugh in yer stupid selfelevated face.Hahahahahahaha...

Its a great album and it has a little something for all metal heads, thats ofcoarse if you not a snob like our friend previous....

I say buy it,,get it home and turn it up...!!!

Enjoy.

It appears that everyone reviewing this CD is more interested in classifying the genre and labelling DevilDriver as Nu, Grind, Emo, Grind, Pop, Flamenco or whatever. Listen to it for what it is, a sub genre full of formula's and vast overproduction

The drumming is excellent, the riffs heavy in places (although not too exciting), the vocals are shouty but you can hear the words.

On its own its an OK album, good background music, or for driving, it doesnt stand up against better bands but it is better than alot.

Average, could do better.

Devildriver's very first album is a slab of rock hard and crushing metal. As evidenced by the first two memorable songs:- "Nothing's wrong & I could care less", the band saught to gain a furious momentum right from the off. For all intensive purposes they greatly achieved that; and this is further concrete'd-in by the following riff fest of "I dreamed I died & Meet the wretched". Elsewhere "Cry for me sky" is a turbulent slide into riff madness. The centerpiece of the album feels ok with no particular standouts there; but "Swinging the dead", is a very noteable highlight as is the closer of the album "Devil's son".

This is an album however loaded with songwriting cliches and lyrical nievity scattered throughout sections of musical transitions; including an obvious overproduction and the rather amateur-like "Die"; but in an overall sense, what a remarkably genuine charade of ideal and hoarse mosh pit metal., This is absolutely one stone throw within an arena of stripped-down extreme metal, with none of the subtlety. In you're face, angry and metal as metal can be; this is one for the fans who enjoy the persistent aspects of harsh metal with no frills. Stressed vocals, sledgehammer riffs and excessive brutality sum up a hotbed of raw ingredients.

Don't expect much melody or atmosphere here of any kind.., it's a sincere album:- with just one "skull crushing" single goal in mind.
