Neues Album im Kasten
DEVILDRIVER haben die Arbeiten an ihrem fünften Studio-Album beendet. Produziert wurde es von Mark Lewis (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, ALL THAT REMAINS) und Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, EXODUS, MACHINE HEAD, etc.) wird es mastern.
Schlagzeuger John Boecklin sagt zum neuen Album:
„It’s interesting to me – it’s not the fastest shit we have done, nor the slowest, but it just has lots of groove. But to me, when people say ‚it’s got groove,‘ I think it’s a nice way of saying simple and boring these days. We wanted to avoid this.
Our record has a great contrast of dark riffs, stomp bouncing drums with the right amount of blasts and double bass, and outstanding vocal delivery from Dez Fafara that takes it past your average approach of the metal attempt. I’m not talking about reinventing the wheel or nothing. I just think our new album sits in its own corner from any of our other albums.“
Auch Dez Fafara hat sich in einem Interview dazu geäußert:
„Record five with this band, and I’ve said it before, even with record five, six, seven, eight and nine, will continue to get better. Not a lot of bands can say that and not a lot of bands have done that. Most bands, by the time they’ve done that amount of records, they’re either over it or they’re not giving you the anticipation of the record release that they should. But we want to keep DEVILDRIVER fans on their feet. So every two years we’re going to release a record and just continue to tour like we do, and we’re booked until May 2012. Then we’re going to take about six months off. That’ll be the most time I’ve had off in about fourteen years.“
Das Album wird voraussichtlich im Frühjahr 2011 via Roadrunner Records erscheinen.Galerie mit 22 Bildern: DevilDriver - Spirit in Black 2018
