Minus the bonus tracks and it's a perfect length.
This one seemed to end too quickly.
And fury starts and ends solidly, but 6-10 are fairly mediocre efforts imo

And their first album....well, maybe Metalstyles next review perhaps??

All very true statements. Judging by that, logically, the next album should be perfect
*prays to god*

hahaha, the name Devildriver is derived from a set of bells used in Italy to drive away evil spirits. Don't ask for more details 'cause I can't for the life of me remember them, but I at least know that, lol

Have you noticed that Fury sounds really low when played through headphones?

Try it and compare it too this and Pray For Villians, HUGE difference.
Bass guitar aside, there's no bass whatsoever.

Ok, I see what you mean, there's definitely a difference.
I suppose that's part of the production side of the album, amirite?

Oh, and, on the subject of bass, the drummer obliterates his double-bass pedals enough to compensate for it.

Yeah, it's a really shoddy mix on that album.
Few others i've picked up on are:
Constitution of Treason - God Forbid
The Infection - Chimaira (The therimin still shines through though)
Anthems of Rebellion - Arch Enemy

Ok, I'm going to check out Chimaira simply because they use a therimin, that sounds pretty epic.
You've also reminded me to get into Arch Enemy more, one of my mates has been pestering me for weeks to do it and I just haven't gotten around to it.

Just avoid the one I mentioned, best one with the new singer (Angela) is Wages of Sin imo

Well it's a chick lol
She's pretty beastly though. Johan was pretty shit, but the music's gotten progressively worse since Angela jumped on board.

If you wanna get a feel for their older stuff, avoid their recent comp The Root Of All Evil, just d/l the back catalogue

Album Rating: 4.5

The default review is the one that is considered the best by the community, I suspect you got it because you got more pos votes than the other guy.
Well the whole story with default reviews is a bit shady. Your version is logical but it isn't always like that. Just, for example, skim through some old Korn or Unwritten Law or In Flames or
Disturbed reviews where you can clearly see some tbt's are the defaults that are much worse than some other reviews for that album. It's a weird system, and i personally don't know how exactly does it work as it's pretty controversial at times. Sometimes it changes defaults automatically based on which review is better, sometimes it doesn't.
And their first album....well, maybe Metalstyles next review perhaps??
may very well be as the default for it now isn't the best imaginable haha

Hmm, I have noticed that, though I don't know about you but I don't feel up to talking to MX about it so its probably going to stay like it is for a little while longer.
