With “Pray For Villains” we’ve already reached the fourth chapter in Devildriver’s history. This band around former Coal Chamber frontman Dez Fafara has consistently been releasing a new album every two years and every single time things sound a little bit better.
That’s no different on “Pray For Villains” on which the band is once again refining their take on modern American metal. Throw in some thrash influences and more melody than ever and you’re looking at a solid and diverse album by a band that never seems to stop improve. That does mean that there are no surprises on here but hey, why change a winning team!
Score: 8 out of 10
