What they’re saying:
Guitarist Jeff Kendrick told Altsounds:

“Well I think the songwriting is the best we’ve ever done, I think the musicianship is the best. I think it’s the best vocally, it has the best production too. I think it’s got simply the best everything. As far as the songs go, hooks and things like that, there’ll definitely be there. In terms of it being straight up heavy? It’s the heaviest and most brutal record by far. It’s fucking heavy man!”

Thrash Hits verdict:
DevilDriver aren’t about being big and clever, they’re about fucking heavy fucking metal to neck beer and break shit to. If this delivers as advertised, Thrash Hits Towers may get a tad messy.

Guitar solo potential:
3/6
