With over two decades of experience under his belt, Dez Fafara is one of the most notable and raw frontmen you can ever see live. We got the chance to catch up with the DevilDriver vocalist as he spoke about some of the younger bands that interest him as well as what first caught his attention when he began listening to music. He also gives some very informative advice to his younger self that maybe helpful to those newer bands out there.
In one of our closest Death Matches to date, DevilDriver managed to pick up a win against Arch Enemy featuring new vocalist Alissa White-Gluz. The victory was hard-fought, bringing DevilDriver just three wins away from Death Match Hall of Fame glory. However, they've got a powerhouse act ready to take them on this week.
Those who've dug into DevilDriver's 'Winter Kills' album since it was released in August 2013 may have caught a striking cover song on the disc. The group took on the AWOLNATION hit 'Sail,' adding their own intense stamp on the track, and Loudwire is proud to exclusively bring you the lyric video for the song in the clip above.
Chimaira have scored yet another victory in their series of Death Matches. Having most recently defeated Gorguts, Chimaira now find themselves one win away from induction into the Death Match Hall of Fame. If Chimaira pulls off that fourth victory, their track 'No Mercy' will also earn a heavy rotation spot on Loudwire Metal Radio.
DevilDriver's sixth studio album, 'Winter Kills,' will be released on Aug. 27 via Napalm Records. Anticipation for 'Winter Kills' is building up, as vocalist Dez Fafara has been speaking incredibly highly of the band's newest work. You may have to wait another month for 'Winter Kills' to drop, but we've got a nice piece of the record to share with you right now.
