Winter Kills


I was trying to think of a phrase to describe DevilDriver when I opened the press release accompanying their latest album and, there it was, “metal institution”. It is those two words that describe the American heavy metal titans down to a tee but, at the same time, pre-warn the listener what they can expect from Winter Kills. Yes, Dez Fafara may be dallying with his buddies in Coal Chamber again but, as Winter Kills smashes into track two “Ruthless”, it’s obvious that he’s lost none of that burning desire to produce some of the most raging pit anthems around.
