link to buy devildriver ticketsThose familiar with DEVILDRIVER always seem to have a Love or Hate opinion, not necessarily of the band, but of lead singer Dez Fafara. As the former frontman of the band COAL CHAMBER, Dez was defined by many by the particular style of the band’s music and off-stage controversy that seemed to surround him. Eventually forming a new band as DEVILDRIVER the initial challenge seemed to be setting the goal of shedding the negative stigma and create something new. 6 albums later it would seem as if those old notions have fallen away for most, but the Love / Hate relationship still stands which may likely be the key to the band’s continued success.

This time on tour with Knoxville, TN’s WHITECHAPEL who have recently adopted Sanford, FL as a second home while the band recorded their latest album “Our Endless War” at AUDIOHAMMER STUDIOS with the mighty MARK LEWIS, the band sets out to stamp their mark of musical evolution and brutality into the heavy metal / modern hardcore landscape.

Opinions may vary but one thing is for sure, this band deserved the attention it is now receiving in support of their sophomore release ‘Infestissumam’ for which the band has finally come to support.

soulfly havok north american tour 2013Metal legend Max Cavalera returns to Orlando with SOULFLY and the mighty HAVOK to the Social Tuesday, October 22nd and we’ve got your chance to win a FREE PAIR of tickets!

In support of SOULFLY’s latest album »Savages« melds the most brutal, the heaviest and overall the most vibrant components that made up each record in SOULFLY’s diverse catalog. By Max’s own account, »Savages« is possessed of the tribal groove of the first two SOULFLY albums, particularly in songs like ‘Bloodshed’, ‘Ayatollah of Rock ‘N’ Rolla’ and ‘Master of Savagery’. But there’s also the thrash metal that was found on DARK AGES and OMEN; whereas the CAVALERA CONSPIRACY records contain short, punky bursts, the new SOULFLY record gets into the epic length territory of early METALLICA. The death metal vibe of SOULFLY’s »Enslaved« emerges in songs like ‘Fallen’ and ‘Cannibal Holocaust’.’
