Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
It seems like with each successive release, DevilDriver keep turning up the dial of heaviness. And on their fourth studio album overall, 2009's Pray for Villains, the group continues plowing forward with this approach. Screams, growls, raging riffs, and impressively airtight drumming are all crucial ingredients to the DevilDriver metallic recipe. Produced by former Machine Head guitarist Logan Mader, Pray for Villains hits you like a ton of bricks from the get-go with the album-opening title track (and leadoff single) and never lets up, as evidenced by such brutal tracks as "Fate Stepped In" and "Forgiveness Is a Six Gun," among other dangerous ditties. Pray for Villains ...

Pray for Villains confirms once and for all that Dez Fafara has totally shed the nu-metal schtick of Coal Chamber for the 100 percent pure headbanging fury of DevilDriver.

    Let's start a riot while the night is still young!

    This latest Devildriver album is by all means ultra-heavy, but I find it to be more sophisticated than their previous work. While still extremely pronounced, the drums are scaled back a lot compared to their first album. I find the songs to be catchier and more memorable than "The Last Kind Words". One song that takes the cake is "Another Night in London" (...let's start a riot while the night is still young!)...its hillbilly rhythm makes me want to grab a jug of moonshine and chugalug. It's a very unique metal song, and very cool! This young metal band has shown that they want to improve and expand on each successive album, and I hope they produce many, many more!
