“You may not know what this flavor is now, because it’s a whole different ball
game.” – Dez Fafara

Coal Chamber are back in 2015 with 4th long player Rivals, an imaginative plunge through their signature dark grooves, spastic screams and oddball twists and turns that is an exciting return to the scene. Arguably their heaviest record yet, Rivals finds the once splintered band conquering demons, looking forward instead of back and all about kicking ass. Pre order HERE.

It was great to talk to workaholic Dez Fafara, fresh back from Mexico City, about his career, nu metal haters, the B52’s, falling in love with music and much more.

We’ve played several shows with them before and really enjoy performing and hanging out with them and believe that combining together to make one big brutal tour only made sense.

Album Review: DevilDriver – Winter Kills

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at 9:56 AM (PST)


Winter kills but it also tests our mettle (metal?). By now we all know the phrase “winter is coming” as a reminder to brace for whatever life brings. DevilDriver kind of embody this in a metal sense in that album after album they do what they do, nose to the grindstone, take it or leave it. Consistent drive and resolve in the face of time’s march is the hallmark of what makes a lasting metal band (with the odd Cold Lake or Risk in some band’s discographies).

In horror movies you have your low level classics like Ghoulies and you have your engorged Hollywood level Rob Zombie Halloween remakes. If DevilDriver were a horror movie they would be somewhere in between (Maybe a Gremlins 2 : The New Batch?). Pretty well known but still kind of a cult classic. DevilDriver are not as acclaimed or favored with the “street cred” of Lamb of God, if certainly as heavy sometimes.  Nonetheless, DevilDriver are one of the biggest bands in metal. Pre-“FREE RANDY”, Dez Fafara had more mainstream crossover name recognition due to his time in Coal Chamber, maybe? I dunno. Despite Coal Chamber’s powerful Download return (watch this pit for “Sway” on Youtube), Nu Metal is still the once loved but still discarded lingerie in the corner no one wants to get caught sniffing anymore (I still say Dark Days was underrated and the best CC album). 

Anyway, Winter Kills proves that regardless of past trends, DevilDriver should be judged on their own merit.
