About this album

Beast is the fifth studio album by Groove Metal band DevilDriver. It was released on February 22, 2011 in the US. It is also their last album to feature longtime bassist Jon Miller who left in 2011.

Beast was recorded at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, Texas; and was produced by Mark Lewis (All That Remains, Trivium, The Black Dahlia Murder) and will hit retail via longtime label Roadrunner Records on February 22, 2011.

“The record is extreme,” vocalist Dez Fafara told Revolver magazine. “And it attacks from start to finish. If you liked [2007’s] ‘The Last Kind Words’, this is like that on steroids and crank, driving a Buick Skylark 200 miles an hour straight to Vegas.” “I felt like I was waking up and experiencing a moment of clarity that brought out all these pissed off, negative emotions,” Fafara said of making the album. “It’s an all-out release of pain. “It’s been a beast of a year and a half, and it’s still going,” he added. Regarding the new album’s musical direction, drummer John Boecklin stated, “It’s interesting to me — it’s not the fastest shit we have done, nor the slowest, just lots of groove. But to me, when people say ‘it’s got groove,’ I think it’s a nice way of saying simple and boring these days. We wanted to avoid this. “Our record has a great contrast of dark riffs, stomp bouncing drums with the right amount of blasts and double bass, and outstanding vocal delivery from Dez that takes it past your average approach of the metal attempt.
