NWOAHM: DevilDriver – DevilDriver
Devildriver was a angel falling from the sky for me. Me and my sister were very much into Coal Chamber and when Dez started DevilDriver I was completely in love. I was done listening to nu-metal and Dez decided to do vocals in a metalcore band. What perfect timing. Their self-titled debut is still one of my favorite albums ever and I still listen to it a lot. The album skips the bullshit, is really straight to the point. Every song is a banger and it was refreshing to hear Dez Fafara sing this way when I was a kid. I’m just really glad that he found a new way to make music and to stay innovative. Plus releasing this on Roadrunner just like Coal Chamber was a perfect introduction to me. I almost bought everything Roadrunner released back then.
