Album Review

The biblical verse "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us" inspired the album title of the Devil Wears Prada's 8:18, and in that spirit, the lyrical content onboard is filled with hope, even though it comes from a very bleak place. Mike Hranica’s voice is relentlessly brutal, as he delivers a death wail over the Dayton, Ohio, faith-based, metalcore act's adventurous, technical shredding. Hard dynamic shifts between promise and anguish are often heard in Christian metal (see the work of Underoath or As I Lay Dying), and Jeremy DePoyster's clean vocals offer a nice counterpoint to the gut-punches delivered by Hranica. Hard signature changes and manic riffs keep things creative and challenging, while monstrous choruses anchor the songs to make them feel more visceral and accomplished than prior outings. Even though the band's fifth album comes after last year's split with keyboardist James Baney, it isn't purely a guitar-oriented affair. New keyboardist Jonathan Gering adjusts accordingly, and makes his presence felt in a number of sinister, ambient moments; most notably the industrial-flavored "Care More," a mechanical single that mirrors Nine Inch Nails before it reverts to a blistering inferno of guitar crunch and screaming. Executive producer Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage and producer/engineer Matt Goldman (Underoath, the Chariot) take their fair share of chances, but their studio embellishments add weight to the extreme breakdowns, rather than water them down. When the Devil Wears Prada strays from the typical modern metal formula with progressive ideas, the results are almost always favorable, and 8:18 finds the sextet at their most provocative and heavy.

Beautiful Melancholy

After buying the pre-order and hearing Home For Grave, and then hearing the stream for Martyrs, I must say I am awestruck. Not only has TDWP progressed, they've also matured. Many in the Metal genre believe a heavier record is a progression. That may be true in SOME aspects, but progression is growing up and allow that to flow into the music. After listening to Plagues,WRAABB & Dead Throne, it is obvious that TDWP have grown as people and musicians. Both Martyrs and Home For Grave display the bands ability to create an atmosphere with their music, that in turns pulls out emotion in the listener. I've never been so excited for a record as I am for 8:18. If Martyrs and Home For Grave are any indication; this will be a mature, heavy, dark record. Can't wait to hear the rest!

Perfect.

Borrowing from the best melodic inspirations of With Roots Above and Branches Below, sharing the dark fun and produced punch of the Zombie EP, and reinventing the upbeat heaviness of Dead Throne (and exceeding expectations where that particular album fell short), The Devil Wears Prada has recaptured the raw heaviness of their original essence without compromising their innovation. 8:18 is an entirely new animal, and a huge leap forward for the band. Simply put: Masterpiece.

Vocals

I'm stoked for this, Mike stated in the 4th update that the strains are intentional to emphasize emotion. Love his vocals and sound.
