Metal veterans DEVILDRIVER are back with the follow up to their 2020 album “Dealing With Demons I” with (yes you guess it) “Dealing With Demons Vol. II”. This will be the bands 10th full length record which marks the start of an incredible third decade of music! The first taste of the record can be heard with brand new single entitled ‘Through the Depths’. The track is a heavy visceral onslaught bringing in elements of the classic DEVILDRIVER sound along with some black metal-esque passages and plenty of intricate guitar work and head banging riffage to boot.
Speaking on the themes of the song DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara says: “‘Through the Depths’ is a conversation between a higher power and humans regarding the power of thinking ideas into existence, but being very careful of being arrogant behind those wants and needs. The first lines give this away: “Attention attention, you’re seeking, you’ve asked for, it’s given” (the higher power says). Then the lines of the chorus are that same higher power speaking to humans, saying: ‘through the depths to the ascension, nothing you wouldn’t do for my attention, held to the fire it’s not my crime, you’ve pinned it on me for the last time.’ Meaning – don’t blame the Gods (pin it on them) for your fuck ups. Meaning – put it out there and take steps to attain goals and take accountability. This track is the essence of Dealing With Demons Vol. II, and the conversations within the record get way deeper than even this. Enjoy.”
