This week, DEVILDRIVER is pleased to reveal the first of several segments of a new interview commentary series supporting the release of Outlaws ‘Til The End. 

The first segment, titled “Intro to Outlaw Country”, features members of DEVILDRIVER as well as album guests Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Lee Ving of Fear, Hank3, Wednesday 13, Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory and Brock Lindow of 36 Crazyfists discussing their personal introductions to the outlaw country genre and how it has influenced them as musicians.

 

In the video, Fafara details, “I got into my parent’s record collection when I was younger, and that’s what got me into music. And they have everything from the Doors, to Steppenwolf, to a lot of outlaw country, and even stuff like Kenny Rogers, laying around the house… but I think my true love [for outlaw country] came from when I started touring with Pantera. Them and on the Black Sabbath tour. I constantly was hearing those guys on the bus jamming outlaw country. If it wasn’t Willie Nelson, it was Johnny Cash and bands like that. I just fell in love with the lyrics as well. The lyrical content is so fucking real…”

 While online, listen to a clip of DEVILDRIVER’s cover of Hank3’s “Country Heroes”, featuring Hank3 himself, here: 

 

Outlaws ‘Til The End is both a startling curveball and a ferocious statement of individuality from a band who have been a constant and effective force in the heavy metal world for the best part of two decades now. From the opening seconds of Hank3’s “Country Heroes” onward, Outlaws ‘Til The End is simply one of the most invigorating records the band have made yet. More importantly, these evocative, irresistible songs have all been wholly rebuilt from the ground up, powered by the classic DEVILDRIVER sound and embellished with Fafara’s unmistakable feral roar. Outlaws ‘Til The End was produced, mixed and recorded with Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Sepultura, The Cure), and co-produced by DEVILDRIVER guitarist Mike Spreitzer. The album was mastered by renowned engineer Alan Douches.

 

Completing this unprecedented project is a host of metal and country luminaries providing unforgettable cameos: horror metal icon Wednesday13 lends his incensed rasp to George Jones’ “If Drinking Don’t Kill Me”, 36 Crazyfists frontman Brock Lindow brings fire and soul to Steve Earle’s, “Copperhead Road”, and Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell helps to turn Richard Thompson’s anti-war classic, “Dad’s Gonna Kill Me”, into a brooding gothic metal extravaganza. Meanwhile, Lamb of God members Randy Blythe and Mark Morton contribute to an exhilarating decimation of Willie Nelson’s “Whiskey River” before Randy makes a second appearance on DEVILDRIVER’s version of cowboy standard “Ghost Riders In The Sky”; the latter featuring the son of Johnny Cash himself. The album also features the iconic voice of Fear, US punk rock legend Lee Ving, on Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around” and David Allan Coe’s “The Ride”.

SKINDRED
New Video That's My Jam From New Album Big Tings - April 27

 

UK Ragga Rockers SKINDRED have released a new video That's My Jam from the upcoming new album Big Tings which will be released on April 27.



Watch the video

 

 

The Video for the new single features a special appearance by Hollywood actor and all round bad guy Patrick Bergin best  known for his roles in the classic films Sleeping with the Enemy & Patriot Games  as well as recently starring in the UKs biggest TV show EastEnders as Aidan Maguire.

 

"That 's My Jam" is an infectious metal pop beast of a track which still retains the Skindred ragga swagga metal trademark sound of the band. "That's My Jam" is how Rock music in 2018 should sound: unique, trend setting and straight to the point!

 

 

The album has been recorded at Peter Gabriels Real World studio in the village of Box, NR Bath.

 

Skindred Guitarist Mikey Demus states: 

"The name hopefully says it all, you can expect some seriously Big Tings from Skindred on our next record. We've thrown away the rulebook and pushed ourselves harder than ever to create the biggest, baddest, and most banging songs we could muster. We can't wait to start unleashing this new stuff on the world, so prepare yourselves for some Big Tings!”

 

Roaring and pounding, the follow-up to 2015`s Volume is a magnificent beast churning out heavy, distortion-laden riff punches melting into vocalist Benji Webbe`s frenzied rapping. Explosive metal and punk material rubs shoulders with smooth melodies – and of course Skindred wouldn't leave us on the dancefloor without a hefty helping of their trademark Godzilla-esquely huge choruses. Big songs, big sound, big tings!

SHYLMAGOGHNAR 

Premiere New Video For Transience

 

Hailing from the Netherlands, SHYLMAGOGHNAR became one of the most spoken of extreme metal duos in underground metal throughout the years. This is not just because of pure heaviness, not because of incredible song structures and not because of fiery emotional music.  This is a combination connecting all of these factors and creating a raw and unique soundscape. With their debut album ‘Emergence’ SHYLMAGOGHNAR achieved an amazing feat, without having signed to a label, their album reached nearly 1.700.000 views on the bands YouTube channel.

 

Their second strike is entitled ‘Transience’ and will be out on June 29!
On this album the band perfected their game and brought it to a whole new level!

 

Watch the new video for the title track of  ‘Transience’
