Across The Board

Posted on February 12, 2008

So, a new DevilDriver press release hit the wires today…and it goes just like this: ALBUM IS MOST ADDED ACROSS THE BOARD AT METAL RADIO BAND GENERATING LOTS OF BUZZ ON SUPERJOINT RITUAL TOUR New York, NY: DevilDriver, the new band from Coal Chamber’s Dez Fafara, is making quite an impact in the Heavy Metal scene. The album, which landed in stores on October 28, is generating a buzz at the Metal Radio format and the band is picking up fans rapidly as they tour with Superjoint Ritual and Morbid Angel. The self-titled debut garnered #1 Most Added across the board at the Metal Radio trade charts this week, including CMJ Loud Rock, CMJ Crucial Spins, and FMQB Metal Detector. It is an incredible start for an album that will obviously dominate the format for some time. The band is also kicking up a stir on tour with Superjoint Ritual and Morbid Angel, wowing and winning fans with each subsequent performance. One concert-goer, who happens to host and program a Metal Radio show in Wisconsin, offered this testimonial about the band’s live prowess: “DevilDriver was just amazing: real true metal horns in the air metal, circle pits, everything.” As for Dez Fafara’s history, he formerly fronted Coal Chamber, who recorded three albums for Roadrunner and became one of the most talked about bands on the scene. Their self-titled debut went GOLD in the US. After the band broke up, Fafara formed DevilDriver and has already received accolades from the international press. Of the album, Terrorizer magazine emphatically states, “The majority of songs are tight and to the point, the musicianship is faultless and this will stir a circle/mosh pit in even the most cynical metal fan’s heart.” Hey, for more words on the album, one A&R Rep here at Roadrunner – before the DevilDriver album was complete – handed a rough of the CD to another employee here, saying, “Listen to this…it will make you shit your pants.” It’s true.
