5 Excellent - Masterpiece. A classic.
4.5-4 Great - Almost perfect records but there's probably a lacking.

3 Average - Some good songs, some bad ones at about a half/half ratio.
2.5-2 Fair - Worth a listen, but best obtained by collectors.
1.5-1 Bad - Major problems with music, lyrics, production, etc.
0 Terrible - Waste of your life and time.

Note: Reviews are graded from 0-5, anything higher or not showing is from our old style. Scores, however, do not reveal the important features. The written review that accompanies the ratings is the best source of information regarding the music on our site. Reviewing is opinionated, not a qualitative science, so scores are personal to the reviewer and could reflect anything from being technically brilliant to gloriously cheesy fun.

Demos and independent releases get some slack since the bands are often spent broke supporting themselves and trying to improve. Major releases usually have big financial backing, so they may be judged by a heavier hand. All scores can be eventually adjusted up or down by comparison of subsequent releases by the same band. We attempt to keep biases out of reviews and be advocates of the consumer without the undo influence of any band, label, management, promoter, etc.

The best way to determine how much you may like certain music is to listen to it yourself.

Band / Release Notes
Powered by the classic DevilDriver sound and embellished with Dez Fafara (ex-Coal Chamber) unmistakable feral roar. Completing this unprecedented project is a host of metal and country luminaries providing unforgettable cameos: Wednesday 13, Brock Lindow (36 Crazyfists) Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory), Lee Ving (Fear), Randy Blythe and Mark Morton (Lamb Of God) and none other than John Cash Jr, son of Johnny Cash.

Cover tunes album of outlaw country music songs
I'm a huge Americana/Outlaw Country fan but I've never cared for DevilDriver. This marriage seemed promising as the idea of screwing up these songs seemed impossible. Most of these songs are classics due to the incredible writing, music and vocals. These tracks are built on lonesome gravel roads carrying the burdens of the world. The production and mechanical nature of the record erases all of that emotion. This is a sterile assembly line of factory parts and mechanisms. In many ways this embodies everything wrong with this type of metal. Slipknot, Pantera, Lamb of God, DevilDriver, Black Dahlia Murder...the list goes on and on. It's sad when standard volume feedback sells.
Recommended for fans of: Pantera and Lamb of God
