Devildriver - The Fury Of Our Maker's Hand
And there they are again, DevilDriver! A death metal band that has grown more solid and has become more and more mature in the music they make since they started about 2 years ago. Musically speaking this band has become more of a unit and lyrically Dez Fafara (ex-Coal Chamber) has reached another level in his career. As Dez said himself: “Before you had to try and figure out what I was saying in my lyrics. On the new album I'm trying to be more of a storyteller.” With that in mind, let’s have a look at the fury on ‘The Fury Of Our Maker’s Hand’.
 
I’m curious, curious as hell! What will DevilDriver bring me this time?! Well, they decided to start with a nice and relaxing intro. Not a boring one, but one that slowly gets a bit heavier and finally bursts out into the real song, ‘End Of The Line’. Immediately I recognise the great screaming quality’s of Dez, who indeed screams and grunts more understandable words than he used to do on the bands debut album. And although a devil driver is used to drive away evil powers, I think DevilDriver merely attracts them. And I mean that in a positive way of course! The music is fast, refreshing and most of all heavy as hell.
 
Often the double bass kicks in to give another dimension to the songs. These musicians seem to be driven by their fury. Well, driven isn’t the right word I think; let’s say that they seem to be forced (again in a positive way) by their fury. But there’s more. It’s not just powerful blastbeats, tight riffs and angry screaming. There’s also space for guitar solos on this album. Solos that one can only appreciate. Solos that only convince me more of the musical skills this band has.
 
And the way the guitars are used in ‘Hold Back The Day’, men oh men! I love that! Definitely thé ‘stick-in-your-head-the-whole-fucking-day’ song of this album! This song is also one of those songs that remember me to the fact that this CD is more melodic than the first album. But make sure you’re not going to judge this band because I’m telling you that this album is more melodic because it’s still heavy. Really heavy!
 
Actually I could go on and on and writing something good about every single song on the album. That, my friends, I won’t do though. I’m just saying that if you liked the first album there’s no doubt you’ll like this one too! And if you didn’t know this band before (be ashamed!), then check it out a.s.a.p.! Well, at least do so before DevilDriver hits Europe again to devastate every single city they play in.
 
‘The Fury Of Our Maker’s Hand’ in one sentence? Devastating, ass kicking, stick your fist in the air CD that will grab you at your balls and makes you moshing around your room.
 
Release date: June 27th 2005
 
For those of you who became or already were interested in this band, DevilDriver will visit Europe for a memorable clubtour in the months of August and/or September. See you there!
