This whole article is like putting them up on a pedestal. It's groove metal for Christ's sake.. Pantera did this shit to death 15 years ago.. album will probably be average.

Legendary for what? Having a horrible chin tattoo or being in a god awful nu metal band?

These guys never change their sound. Every album supposedly "blows away" the last. But sadly they all just "blow".

i love these guys, but they should've went with labels like century media or metal blade, napalm records isn't and never will be a big deal, i love devildriver and all their music, and i can't wait for this new album, but this move wasn't really a smart one. oh well, congrats anyways, i guess.
