Devil Down [Band Review]

Band: Devil Down
Country: United Kingdom
Genre: Metal

Devil Down are a metal quintet from Stoke-on-Trent, England. They’re currently on hiatus but have some big things planned for 2012. Musically, the band are a destructive force of pure hate-fuelled metal, similar to old school Slipknot (pre-Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses) mixed with a dash of extreme metal. The riffs are well constructed, strong and face-meltingly brilliant. Devil Down pull no punches with the music. Vocally, they’re hard to compare to anyone else, due to the diverse range of their vocals. “War Drums” is one example of this, as it features a number of screams, grunts, growls and clean vocal work, all of which fits in well with the band’s music. “Havok” is another song that shows their diverse use of vocals, as well as some of their powerful and ingenious riffs and slaughtering drum work. Devil Down are definitely going to b act to keep an eye out for in 2012.
