DevilDriver to Unleash the "Beast" in February

Los Angeles metal behemoths DevilDriver will release the Beast in February! The band's fifth album is scheduled to hit stores on February 22, 2011, so mark those calendars with a BIG RED CIRCLE now. I will wait for you to get back.
While many bands in the modern era are already withering away by their second album and have shriveled up and died by their third, DevilDriver have proven to mutate, growing stronger, deadlier and more immortal with each successive release. The band recorded 14 songs during the Beast sessions, with 11 or 12 tracks expected to make the final cut. Some song titles are as follows: "Dead to Rights," "Hardened," "Bring The Fight (To the Floor)," "Shitlist," "Talons Out (Teeth Sharpened)," "Blur," "You Make Me Sick (Sacred Secrets)," "The Blame Game," "Coldblooded, "Crowns of Creation" and "Lend Myself to the Night."
Those song titles sound evil in the best possible way and I cannot wait to hear this!
My colleague, ARTISTdirect editor and all around nice guy Rick Florino is probably DevilDriver's largest supporter, so he is stoked, too. I think he went out and inhaled six Big Macs and a fountain Coke to celebrate.
Do you like metal? Are you a DevilDriver fan?
