Beast by DevilDriver
Released: Feb 2011
Label: Roadrunner Records
Barking into the moshpit, Dez Fafara deals threatening second-person accusations all through DevilDriver's fifth album: "You burned the bridge!" "You play the victim!" "You make me sick!" "I put the blame on you!" Tracks tend to open with seconds of melodrama; then, between intermittent breakdowns, rhythms are feigned mainly by regurgitating one ugly note over and over. "Dead To Rights" and "Crowns Of Creation" sound relatively experimental -- the former's got some sort of horn-like counterpoint. But the standout is cover "Black Soul Choir": an Irish jig in slam-metal disguise.
