EDITORS’ NOTES

On Revival, ex-members of metalcore favorites Devil You Know have recast themselves as Light the Torch with maximum sing-along results. Vocalist Howard Jones delivers one mighty chorus after the next, unleashing a wave of huge hooks over galvanic leadoff track “Die Alone,” the staccato chug of “The God I Deserve,” and the sweeping arena anthem “Calm Before the Storm.” Burbling electronics provide the foundation for the brooding “The Great Divide” while nu-metal guitars grind out propulsive rhythms on “Lost in the Fire” and “The Sound of Violence.”

About Light The Torch

Formerly known as Devil You Know, Light the Torch is a Los Angeles, California-based melodic metalcore outfit with ties to a host of other extreme metal acts like All Shall Perish, Killswitch Engage, Devolved, Bleeding Through, and Blood Has Been Shed. Devil You Know formed in 2012 around the talents of Devolved drummer John Sankey and All Shall Perish guitarist Francesco Artusato. Recruiting former Killswitch Engage singer Howard Jones, the band went into the studio to begin work on a debut album. With an LP under their belt, the group inked a deal with Nuclear Blast, and with the realities of touring looming, recruited guitarist Roy Lev-Ari and bassist Ryan Wombacher to fill out their ranks. The band's debut full-length, The Beauty of Destruction, arrived in 2014. A sophomore effort, They Bleed Red, followed in late 2015, and featured the single "Stay of Execution." In 2017, the group announced that, due to legal issues regarding the departure of drummer John Sankey, they would be operating under a new moniker. With new drummer Mike Sciulara (Extinction A.D.) in tow, the newly minted Light the Torch released Revival in March 2018. ~ James Christopher Monger
