News Blog :: DEVIL DRIVER - Reveals Part Two Of The Interview Series!

back

Globally renowned, chart-topping band DEVILDRIVER recently announced the upcoming release of their highly-anticipated full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1. The monstrous collection of savage metal interpretations will be released via Napalm Records on July 6, 2018, and pre-orders are available now in multiple formats via http://smarturl.it/OutlawsTilTheEnd-NPR with more format options coming soon.

Today, DEVILDRIVER is pleased to reveal the second video in a series of new interview commentary videos supporting the release of Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1. The second segment, entitled "Is This a Country Album?", features members of DEVILDRIVER as well as album guests John Carter Cash, Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Lee Ving of Fear, Hank3, Wednesday 13, and Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory discussing what the record is and isn't, and how they feel country and metal fans will receive the album.

In the video, guitarist Neal Tiemann sums it up: "It's not a country record... it's pure DEVILDRIVER metal. It's got some light moments in it, but it's also go some of the heaviest points of DEVILDRIVER's career [on it], I think." He adds, "I've always thought the lap steel could be a cool element to add to a metal record."

From the opening seconds of Hank3's"Country Heroes" onward, Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1 is simply one of the most invigorating records the band have made yet. More importantly, these evocative, irresistible songs have all been wholly rebuilt from the ground up, powered by the classic DEVILDRIVER sound and embellished with Fafara's unmistakable feral roar. Outlaws 'Til The End: Vol. 1 was produced, mixed and recorded with Steve Evetts (Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, Sepultura, The Cure), and co-produced by DevilDriver guitarist Mike Spreitzer. The album was mastered by renowned engineer Alan Douches.


Completing this unprecedented project is a host of metal and country luminaries providing unforgettable cameos: horror metal icon Wednesday13 lends his incensed rasp to George Jones' "If Drinking Don't Kill Me", 36 Crazyfists frontman Brock Lindow brings fire and soul to Steve Earle's, "Copperhead Road", and Fear Factory's Burton C. Bell helps to turn Richard Thompson's anti-war classic, "Dad's Gonna Kill Me", into a brooding gothic metal extravaganza. Meanwhile, Lamb of God members Randy Blythe and Mark Morton contribute to an exhilarating decimation of Willie Nelson's "Whiskey River" before Randy makes a second appearance on DEVILDRIVER's version of cowboy standard "Ghost Riders In The Sky"; the latter featuring the son and daughter of Johnny Cash himself, John Carter Cash and Ana Cristina Cash. The album also features the iconic voice of Fear, US punk rock legend Lee Ving, on Johnny Cash's "The Man Comes Around" and David Allan Coe's "The Ride".
