Devildriver  


According to early reports, this was Dez Fafara's foray into death metal, a new beginning for the former Coal Chamber frontman. Coal Chamber never quite got over the "Korn clone" tag, and well before the band's official breakup, Fafara was planting the seeds for a new project, originally called Deathride before switching to Devildriver. So, is this new project a nu-metal band, or a death metal band? The answer is a bit of both, and a lot of neither, meaning that Devildriver is clearly not a traditional death metal album, and it's not really a nu-metal album, but there are elements of both styles mixed together. Fafara's vocals are more of a roar than a classic death metal growl, and the riffs contain a slight groove a bit more aligned with nu-metal, yet again this is not a nu-metal album, at least not by the standards set by Korn and others. The songs are a bit samey, and overall this doesn't break much new ground, but the album is capable and fits in with the current American underground extreme metal scene.
