Biography

DevilDriver has always been a band on a three-pronged mission: Work hard, rock harder, and kick as many asses as possible in the process.

Since first forming in 2003, the Santa Barbara metal quintet has stuck resolutely to this mission, even though it’s often meant traveling a rougher, less glamorous road than most musicians would prefer to endure. Rather than cashing in on the ... Read more in Amazon's DevilDriver Store

Format: Audio CD
Since the release of the awesome "Fury of our makers Hand" and more recently "The last kind words" Devil Driver without question have made themselves a household name in the world of Hardcore Metal, namely Dez who has worked incredibly hard since the collapse of coal chamber to re-build his reputation and a new band.

Devil Driver have right from the very start wanted to become a cohesive and dedicated metal band playing high quality metal music, with "balls" and without compromises, always letting it be known they were never in this for a side-project. If past releases did'nt quite convince some that the 'Driver wern't quite up to the same stakes as Lamb of god or Children of bodom (for example), with Pray for villains this must surely start to change.

Pray for villains is a "massive" step forward for the guys both in maturity, ideas and musicianship. The title track blasts things off to an amazing start complete with the trademark blast beating and unmistakeable Dez growl with a look-haden chorus.
Even at this point you just know that this record is something special and on into true headbanging riff of "Pure sincerity" (which is sure to be a future live staple at some point) ensures the standard doesn't slip.

Elsewhere "Back with a vengeance" "Resurrection BLVD" and "Forgiveness is a 6gun" are nothing short of exceptional metal songs full of mighty riffs and melodic choruses, including awesome harmonics as well; nothing along the way strikes me as substandard or below par in any way, especially in comparison with some of their older back catalogue, where you might come across the odd turkey.

I dare anyone listening to this in their car not to put their right foot down when the title track gets going!

This is without doubt a great modern metal album. I'm not sure its really any more varied than the previous 3 though - and those more melodic guitar licks have all but disappeared. Its awesomely heavy though and the drum tracks are phenomenal.

I dont think I want variety from Devildriver - Just more of this!

With 16 tracks or pure insanely good metal, and a class Maiden cover, this is their best album so far. It is also, strangely their most diverse. This album has some of their most brutal creations, some serisouly epic guitar solos, sweep picking as a verse riff (resurrection blvd), and a song that can almost be considered soft by DD's standards (teach me to wisper). I recomend any metal fans to get this and have their ears cream.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While Devildriver's first two albums defined the band's power-groove sound, the band mixed thing up with their 3rd album `The Last Kind Words,' by injecting a large amount of melo-death influenced parts into the formula.

With their fourth album, `Pray For Villains,' the band took things one step further, releasing their most diverse and multifaceted record to date. A mixture of tempos, more clean sections than ever before and the introduction of emotional sounding guitar leads mixed in with the twiddling kind gives `Pray For Villains,' a different feel than all previous Devildriver albums, whilst still retaining the overall style of `The Last Kind Words.'

On this album, drummer John Boecklin stepped up his game to a ridiculously high level, to the point where it sounds like they've hired a new drummer altogether. John plays at least an entire third of the album in as blistering a fashion as you would expect from a drum solo, with more of the music than ever being drum centric.

In fact, the whole band are on top form in terms of performance and creativity. Combine this with a solid production job and the aforementioned songwriting and you've got a really strong album indeed.

Highlights include the sinister `Pure Sincerity,' which chugs along at a Pantera pace, with the exception of ridiculously fast kick drums keeping the overall tempo up until the song finally erupts around the three and a half minute mark into all out high speed aggression.

`I've Been Sober,' is an exiting and diverse song that shows of Boecklin's previously mentioned drumming very well in addition to some of the band's strongest ever lead guitar work and a superb powerful vocal performance from Dez.

By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE on 5 Aug. 2009
Format: Audio CD
dev states in a recent interview that he along with his band listen to johnny cash and other such like artists along with metal bands and that can be identified in their sound,i wouldnt be sure of that now,this album,their fourth has also been called diverse for the lads,it isnt really either,some melody has been lost and the metal side has been enhanced further.
The album has a good feel to it,it screams its way through to the final in fine fashion,the 4 bonus tracks arent overly essential but this is a tidy 13 track proper album for sure.
My fave tracks include the self titled track and 'ive been sober' which features an element of clean singing thrown in for good measure.The album is groove laden as you would expect and as i stated,it rocks hard,a good job,they havent let anyone down yet.
