After Coal Chamber disbanded in 2003, singer Dez Farfara nearly split from the music scene. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since then. Within a ten year period, the singer has enjoyed success, making records and touring the globe with his band DevilDriver.
DevilDriver will be releasing their sixth studio album Winter Kills on August 27th via Napalm Records. Today the band has posted the album’s title “Winter Kills” online. Check out the song just above!
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.
