This album is a masterpiece, i do not use that word lightly. The entire album is a journey through metal restored by this. The snarls, the speed, the skill never let up, it's hard to believe it's just two people. Drop what you're doing and buy this album now.

DevilDriver The Fury of Our Maker's Hand
The first DevilDriver album was a high school attempt of a major label album, because honestly, everyone but Dez just graduated. The rawness was there, but it felt like you listen to it on your grandmother broken vinyl. The music was simplistic and vocals borderline screamo. This album is like sweet relief from their self-titled disaster. Dez has devolved his growl/snarl and no longer has that weird Nu-metal to Groove metal vocal transfer, almost like he was going through puberty for a second time. The instrumentation has much improved, most songs have a complex and soft intro (End of the Line, Hold Back the Day, Driving Down the Darkness, Sin & Sacrifice) then the song hits you like a brick wall. But you like the pain don't you, you sick little ***? Anyway all joking aside this album is great, with a few personal strife's. The album flows great until Pale Horse Apocalypse, the song just loses momentum there. Just Run and Impending Disaster pick up the pace again, and then Bear Witness Unto and Before the Hangman's Noose just get boring for me. The title track at the end is interesting, but doesn't bring the album back to speed with the first six songs. The whole album offers up the best of DevilDriver until Pray for Villains, but none the less a whole hearty Groove metal experience. A good retribution album to ask forgiveness for their first attempt. A solid album, a little boring in the last two-three tracks, but not bad. I suggest you give this album a look.

Fear Factory The Industrialist
What I hoped for The Industrialist to be was not to be on, it's just the same rip over and over again. The story is fine, reminds me of some Terminator prequel, but this soundtrack would bore me. This album offers up nothing new, it's just boring and nothing stands out. Mechanize was a hell of a comeback album, it's great, but this follow up is drab in comparison. The Bass is non existent and the drums are a little annoying, i know Gene Hoglan is "The Human Drum Machine" and his double bass kicks sound great on Mechanize. The Bass kicks on The Industrialist sound like they are hitting a slab of stone, it gets on my nerves. It has some catchy songs like Recharger and the title track, but other than that, the songs are just some Transgression songs that never made it. Not that it's a really bad album, just boring. And we all know that Burton C. Bell can't do clean vocals anymore, that's studio magic for you. I know it's Fear Factory's thing to do Harsh and Cleans but to be less deceiving to the fans, just focus on the harsh vocals. I was disappointing with the clean vocals when I saw them live, he's lost it. This album is the same all the way through, nothing interesting other than Recharger, and don't buy the bonus tracks Blush Response and Landfill, it's just noise.
