Devildriver - Short but powerfulTonight was very exciting for me. I got to meet one of the most influential people in the nu-metal scene, and one of the greatest metalbands that have emerged from last year. Yes I’m talking about B. Dez Fafara and his new band Devildriver! I was the last one to interview them and I had to do it during their meal. How uncomfortable! DemonDust: So, how’s the tour been so far? Dez: Killer, In Flames has been treating us very well. Having a good time, hanging out… DemonDust: …getting tired of interviews, I heard I was the last one for today. Dez: Yeah you’re the last one, but you don’t get tired talking about something that you love. DemonDust: So how’s work going on the “Nothing’s Wrong” video? Dez: Ahh good, we’re actually going to film it sometime before Ozzfest. So around May or June. DemonDust: Any comment on why “Die (and die now)” is the last great hate song? Because I seriously doubt that it’ll be the last great hate song from you. Dez: Haha, at the moment it felt like that, but maybe not. We’ll see. DemonDust: What’s the connection between bells that scare away evil demons and you guys? Dez: What’s the connection, uhhh, it was a perfect name for us, Devildriver. Great name, cool meaning, that’s about it. DemonDust: Will any of the bandmembers that were stolen from other bands resume playing with their old bands? Dez: No. John B.: No. DemonDust: What kind of band were you in? John B.: In so many, like an instrumental death metalband, just a metalband, started off in a pop band……. Wasn’t in a rap band though. Hehehe. DemonDust: How often do you get compared with Coal Chamber? Dez: We don’t. People may expect that it’s gonna be Coal Chamber number two but it’s not. Once you hear it you realize it’s not. It’s a lot heavier, a lot more brutal, more lyrically honest, I think. DemonDust: Is there any chance of a Coal Chamber reunion world tour? Dez: No, absolutely not. Out of the question. DemonDust: How’s work going on the new material? Dez: Good, we’ve written four to six new songs, brutal!! DemonDust: Are you going to play any of them tonight? Dez: No. At this moment I just discussed some tracks with Dez and John B., of their debut album, that just every metal fanatic should have!!!! DemonDust: Any comments? Dez: Just that we’re having a great time in the country, being up early, hanging out in the coffeeshops. I’m just going to chill out, have a little bit of red wine, finish my dinner, take a shower and hit the stage. John B.: I’ve got nothing epic to say of any proportion, except that my fries are good. After this, some blabbering went on about them and me, and then I left. A few moments later, after Caliban they entered the stage, and totally crushed us with only seven songs. What a night!!
