California’s DEVILDRIVER is hard at work recording their third album for Roadrunner Records at the Sonic Ranch studio outside El Paso, Texas. Producing and mixing the album is Jason Suecof, known for his great work with TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, GOD FORBID, and BURY YOUR DEAD. Engineer Mark Lewis is helping the band in the studio as well. Their recording is almost done, and their last day in the studio is December 17. Known for their uniquely sinister sound and dark subject matter, the band is keeping true to form with working songtitles including “Damning the Heavens“, “Cattle Call“, “The Last Kind Words” and “Monsters of the Deep“. The album itself is still untitled. Says frontman Dez Fafara, “In a time when most bands are trying to be METALLICA, PANTERA, or IRON MAIDEN, we have made sure our sound is exclusively DEVILDRIVER. The songs are faster and more riffy than on ‘The Fury Of Our Maker’s Hand‘, and there are also more solos. But with all the same groove that makes DEVILDRIVER different.” Obviously satisfied with the progress thus far he adds, “Working with Jason and Mark has been great. They know how to capture the vibe of this band.” In 2003 DEVILDRIVER released its self-titled debut album and participated in the 2004 Ozzfest tour. “The Fury Of Our Maker’s Hand” was released in 2005 and was reissued in October as a special-edition version with six bonus tracks and a DVD. DEVILDRIVER features Dez Fafara (vocals), John Boecklin (drums), Mike Spreitzer and Jeff Kendrick (guitar) and Jon Miller (bass).
