Editors’ Notes

DevilDriver’s fifth studio album sets a benchmark in extreme metalcore right from the opening “Dead to Rights.” Drums explode like rapid-fire munitions while muscled guitar riffs wind tightly under Dez Farfara’s feral shrieks and howls — and this is all within the tune’s first minute. What’s more impressive is how fast the arrangements can change on a dime, as if to remind us that metal doesn’t abide by the laws of inertia — out of nowhere fretboard shredding turns notes into sonic confetti. As the title suggests, “Bring the Fight (To the Floor)” is an especially violent cut with drum-patterns played so fast that you might get an anxiety attack from trying to follow them too closely.
