Editorial Reviews

DevilDriver tear their way through heavy metal again with Beast, the band's fifth album for Roadrunner Records, which is an exorcism of animalistic primal hooks, death metal percussion and propulsive thrashing.

With Beast, DevilDriver ventured into new territory: the grooves are catchier than ever, but there's an intricacy and taut technicality to them, representative of an angrier musical monster. Beast, comes a mere two years after the band's incredibly successful Pray for Villains, which debuted at number 35 on the Billboard Top 200. Villains even surpassed first-week sales of their critically acclaimed 2007 outing, The Last Kind Words and 2005's The Fury of Our Maker's Hand. It's been a constant uptick for the Southern California quintet since they first blasted a hole through the zeitgeist in 2003 with their pivotal self-titled debut.

The Special Edition CD/DVD version of Beast, features 3 bonus tracks and a DVD that features an hour and a half documentary that chronicles the band from day one through their last album in 2009. It also includes 4 music videos.

Customer Reviews

As for the CD, DevilDriver fans will love it.
Demonic Doug
That album had some great songs on it, but too many that sounded like uninspired filler for me to completely get into.
J. Hill
More importantly however is the bonus DVD which features 5 music videos and a 1hr 30min documentary.

Every Devildriver album brings a little something new to the band's overall style and they aren't the sort of band you could ever accuse of making the same album over and over again.

Devil Driver's fifth studio album `Beast,' is no exception, although you may be forgiven for fearing so had you read any of the pre-release press which seemed to threaten a very one dimensional and relentless album.

Luckily, while `Beast,' is definitely hard and aggressive it is by no means a basic pounding assault devoid of variety. For example, moments in 'Blur,' wouldn't be out of place on The Great Southern Trendkill and `Black Soul Choir,' almost sounds like a radio single for the first couple of minutes and has a different feel to anything the band have done yet for the last few.

Unlike some albums which seem to run out of steam half way through, 'Beast,' keeps getting better and better, unleashing its unique characteristics more and more as the album goes on, almost easing you into the changes. The opening few songs are what you'd expect the band to make at this stage and things diverge from the formula more and more towards the albums end.

The guitar solos have a different feel to all of the band's previous albums, they seem to have moved to a more Judas Priest sound, which helps the album have a unique identity in their catalogue.

The production is very clear which allows the music to stay heavy without becoming uncomfortable. The guitars aren't a mere wall of sound, you have good definition which is always a bonus.

I'm convinced these guys take more and more advanced music lessons between recordings. It seems they become significantly better musicians with every record, and Beast is no exception. I'm also positive they named the album after they had recorded it, and realized 'Beast' was the only fitting title for this leviathan of a record. If there is anything close to a complaint is that the brutal, frantic pace rarely lets up, but I'm sure this was the intention. The title of my review has to do with the fact that although the album does not disappoint, it doesn't exactly break new ground. This is not DevilDriver trying to be Meshuggah or Nile or anybody else. They are doing what they do, and they f'ing aced it this time. I think this is why it took 5 or 6 listens to really appreciate it. It all felt a little too familiar at first listen but the feeling passed quickly. This is back to that Last Kind Words formula, just considerably faster, meaner and more to the point. They forget about slowing down very often, in favor of more grade A metal beef; that is, John Boecklin making sweet, sweet love to his drumkit while Kendrick and Spreitzer juggle crushing riffs and impressive solos. And of course Dez's demonic growling/shrieking to make it a full meal (he's angrier this time around if that's even possible). Musically I can't pick a favorite here, whether it's Boecklin's massive double bass parts, pummeling grooves or creative cymbal use, or the intricate, always original guitar work. The bass is, well, typical metal bass playing. Rarely noticeable or worth a mention except for a moment here and there, but that's not surprising. I think the album wouldn't have suffered from a few slower moments here and there to build momentum but this is not enough of a nuisance to knock down a star or even half, really. Highlights for me are Dead to Rights, Sh*tlist, Black Soul Choir, Crowns of Creation and Hardened. All in all a much better record than Villains.

I have to say right off the bat, Beast is like no other record in the Devildriver collection... Not that that's a bad thing, but some fans may or may not dig the new direction... It's all out rage and violence, just as the name suggests. After a loose and more melodic release like Pray for Villains, i think Beast is right on target. The DvD is a great documentary of the band thus far, with clips of live shows, interviews, tour troubles, and the coming together of a f*****g metal family!

The new Devildriver album Beast puts your face and balls in a blender then force-feeds your mangled head the resulting smoothie.

first i want to say that i love devildriver. i think they're a tremendous band with alot of talent. unfortunately though i thought this was a very poor album. yes it is very heavy, yes it is very technical, but that's all it is. i have tried to listen to this album and i cannot get into it. all the songs blend together and there isn't much distinguishing one song from the next. i was disappointed that there wasn't as many melodic riffs as there has been in the past, and i don't mean like "pray for villians". devildriver had quite alot even before that album. all in all i just don't feel that anything really stands out in this album and i thought it was too thrashy and fast, no real good groove laden riffs like they have had in the past.

I don't see too many people proclaiming that DevilDriver is the best band whatever metal subgenre has to offer, but they appear to be gaining momentum. Beast sees them evolving into a more determined, intense unit, focusing more on thrash elements like speed, technicality (on both riffs and solos), and double bass. I can still hear their modern melodic influences, but the sound is heavier overall on this cd. I liked their last two albums, but something kept them at the level of good-but-not-great. While I don't yet regard Beast as great, so far it sounds closer to it than Pray For Villains, certainly. That album had some great songs on it, but too many that sounded like uninspired filler for me to completely get into. I think Beast will have a lot more staying power for me.

Beast opens sending a message, as the first two tracks showcase the heavier emphasis on speed and technicality. The next few songs are more in the mid-paced, groove vein, which I have mixed feelings about. One criticism I've seen about DevilDriver is that they can sometimes sound a bit generic, or a little too like Pantera. In my opinion, those moments happen most often on the mid-paced tracks. The faster songs, like the first two and Blur, are when this band sounds the most inventive; I think they offer some interesting, sometimes unconventional riffs and drum patterns on the faster stuff. Even some of the slower material has that quality, but when they get mid-paced, the songs almost get boring, with riffs and beats you feel like you've heard from a million different bands. So, musically, I think Beast shows the most promise yet of anything from DevilDriver, with probably their most formidable collection of songs, but still with some room for improvement.
