I must tell you, I was really looking forward to the new Devildriver album being released. One thing you must know about my album reviews: I only review albums that I want to. I am not a professional critic, other than the fact that I listen to a ridiculous amount of heavy metal music and I have a background in music.
With that being said, I am a huge fan of this album, because I am a huge Devildriver fan.
I am going to be perfectly honest with you. This is the best Devildriver album to date. From the first track until the end, this album will kick you in the ass and not let up. Pray for Villiains was a tough album to follow, but these guys definitely have taken their game to the next level. This is a great example of groove metal at its finest.
My favorite tracks on the album are “The Blame Game”, “Shitlist”, and “Coldblooded”. These tracks kick serious ass, but the whole album is great. I have listened to this album well over a dozen times, sometimes listening to the album multiple times in a row. I have listened to every nuance of every song. I spent a lot of time with headphones in walking around listening to this album, and this is an amazing metal album. The guitar/bass work, the drumming, and the vocals are all outstanding. I have heard some stuff on this album that I have never heard before, nothing even close. Every metal fan knows when they hear a great album: your heart starts to race, and the hair on your arms and the back of your neck stand up. This album has definitely met that criteria.
I am very happy to award Devildriver’s Beast the full 5 out of 5 devil horns, with no prejudices or equivocations whatsoever.
Buy this album, turn the volume up, hit the repeat button, and rip the damn knob off.
It’s a great year for metal, so far. More reviews on the way.
Have a great day.
Metalheads of the world rejoice. The new Devildriver album is out today. I have to admit I have had the album for about a week (I assure you I obtained it through legal means). This album and the new Evergrey album have been the only two albums I have listened to for the last week.
In honor of the new release, today’s Song of the Day is “The Blame Game” by Devildriver, from the album Beast.
I will tell you this: buy the album. You won’t be disappointed.
My review of Devildriver’s “Beast” and Evergrey’s “Glorious Collision” will be posted soon. The only place you can read my reviews is here on this blog.
Have a great day, everyone.
