The Skinny: Oops, we did it again! PureGrainAudio previously partnered with Roadrunner Records to bring you the exclusive Canadian premiere of The Devil Wears Prada’s new song “First Sight”… well, this time around we’re doing the same thing but with the ENTIRE ALBUM! The renowned hardcore/metal quintet are back with their raging new effort 8:18 which is set to drop on September 17th. Why wait though? Hear it NOW!
Taken from the band’s bio, nothing could sum up the new album better than this… “The passionately inspired band’s brand new album for Roadrunner Records, cryptically titled 8:18, embodies an unflinching, uncompromising authenticity born from revelatory introspection and obsessive workmanship. The dichotomies are refreshing, invigorating and boundless. There’s an oppressive, suffocating darkness to their heavy music, counterbalanced by the hope within their collective faith. The most brutal of crowd-moving breakdowns ignite with friction, bristling against soaring melodies, progressive yet catchy riffing and keyboard soaked atmospheric esotericism. To put it simply: The Devil Wears Prada have developed the chops, the cred and the audience of a true-blue thinking person’s heavy metal band, while simultaneously welcoming fist-pumping hellraisers and youthful moshers alike. 8:18 continues the war against humanity’s dark urges, pointing the finger inward and outward through a medium that is itself both bleak and grand.”
