Two years ago Devildriver released Beast, one of the greatest records the band has ever done. By this year they decided to go ahead and record another piece that pretty much tops Beast in every way possible, and reconfigured the band’s unique ‘California groove metal’ sound to a higher level. They called Winter Kills, because you know “Fuck Summer, Winter Kills“
Winter Kills is an assorted collection of songs that would kick your ass, and would drive you nuts at a DevilDriver show. Any of those songs gets played live and hell will break loose (specially Winter Kills, and Ruthless), The record is dirty, fast and violent. Winter Kills is the musical representation of DevilDriver‘s new era, as the album not only carries the signature sound of the band, but it relates in a more personal and deep way to the daily experiences we go through in life.
