Dez Fafara Metal Hammer Interview

Metal Hammer just posted an interview with Dez Fafar of DevilDriver, about the new album, that work has alredy begun on, heres the interview:

Dez – “We’re definitely stepping it up. Most bands have five or six years before they even get signed, so they have that time to hone their sound and we only had six months! We’ve been together six or seven years so that’s why you’re getting this fourth record. If you’re prolific then bring it. For some bands you’re waiting like three or four years for the next album and that’s not fair on the fans, and we’re not that band, we want to be prolific.”

Dez – “We’ve got way faster tunes, way heavier tunes. We’re finding ourselves with this next record. Really we’ve been finding ourselves on every record. From the first record to the new one you can hear the progression, take the journey. Which I think is cool.”

MH – And what about the anthems on the latest album? Will you be carrying that forward?
Dez – “We don’t yet. I’m just starting to write vocals, but it’s gonna be big: big hooks, big choruses, but it’s heavier as well and has loads of technical stuff on their too. We never set our sights on something specific, it just happens.”

Dez – “The feeling these guys have is that they want to crush so they’re gonna write an album that crushes!”

The album will (hopefully) be out this time next year according to Metal Hammer. This should be awesome, if Pray For Villains is anything to go by, the album should kick a large amount of ASS!!
