Devil You Know ‘They Bleed Red’ is out now via Nuclear Blast! Here is our track-by-track review:
‘Consume the Dammed’ – feisty and raucous the vocal edge leaves its heavy stamp on your mind and slices fiercely at the ears, while the music captures a vibrant intensity.
‘The Way we Die’ has worryingly ravenous rhythms that plough intensely with a dual vocal of clean and low toned heavy, but holds a progressive feel.
‘Your Last Breath’ – has an ambient flavour attached to its muscular bones and feeding wildly on raw power.
‘Stay of Execution’ – trespasses along a toxic path of devious intervention. The recumbent rhythms don’t stay that way for long and rise to soaring proportions.
‘Break the Ties’ – is a hungry little track that breeds heavy swipes of utter surging and bruising intensity, that possesses irrepressible rhythm.
‘Shattered Silence’ – I can see why the band have named this track so as it languishes in a fireball of nagging grooves and stalks its prey with strong emotive force.
‘Let the pain Take Hold’ – I am sure this is going to lead me to eat my words, but is a very soft and melodic track that sounds quite out of place on the album, but a nice contrast to the other heavier tracks, Yes it does explore a heavier feel further on but is a very sophisticated track that outlines their diversity.
‘Master of None’ – swiftly moves back into its raucous and melodramatic comfort zone, not that I am complaining at all. It leaves nothing to the imagination it surges with a malevolence that is spiced with devilish rhythms.
‘Searching for The Sun’ – marks its territory with a hard and heavy stride of raw emotion. Vocally urgent and powerful.
‘How The End Shall Be’ – is a jagged rhythmic encounter that stalks with alluring consequence and bursts with outstanding essences.
‘Broken by The Cold’ – ventures into the unknown with some wispy riffs but prowls like a predator. This one holds a slightly doom element that shows its presence amid an epic strenuous vocal.
This band are not just a modern metal band! Injecting progressive, doom and metal core into its veins. It is a gripping adventure that dips in and out of a deeply enriched climate so it can be unpredictable, showing good diversity, not one trip Pony!
Engaging on all levels from clean to the more raucous element, the music draws a skirmish of rhythms to blisteringly fierce and both leave their distinct mark on the senses.
