Album Review: DevilDriver - Beast

Roadrunner Records

WARNING!! This release should not be listened to if you have a) a heart defect b) pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant or c) if you are known for uncontrollably crying. Brutal. Chaotic. Emotional. These are my first reactions to listening to this sick record! A definite step up from their 2009 release Pray for Villains, this album is too hard to compare to any of their other releases for the simple fact that it portrays a whole different feel and seems to be a more emotional and personal album to the members. DevilDriver really experimented by picking to cover the alt-country band 16 Horsepower’s song “Black Soul Choir” and let me tell you, it’s one of my favorite covers and songs on this cd! Turning an alternative country hit into a melodic death metal tune was brilliant and shows that they are musicians to the core.
