Pray for Villains [CD/DVD] [Explicit Lyrics]

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.
