Globally renowned, chart-topping band DEVILDRIVER recently announced the upcoming release of their highly-anticipated full-length album of outlaw country-gone-metal anthems, Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1. The monstrous collection of savage metal interpretations will be released on July 6, 2018
Today, DEVILDRIVER is pleased to reveal the fourth video in a series of interview commentary videos supporting the release of Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1. The fourth segment, entitled “The Lyrics”, features members of DEVILDRIVER and album guests Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Hank3, Wednesday 13, and Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory, discussing the roots, reality, and rawness of outlaw country lyrics and how their performances brought new life to the content. You can check it out below!
Lamb of God vocalist and Outlaws ‘Til The End: Vol. 1 guest Randy Blythe says, “Heartache, alcoholism, not having money, and just feeling disliked and unwanted by the entire rest of the world – those are all very real things. There’s no disputing that… you can see broken men and women everywhere. And that’s what those songs are ultimately about, I think. Broken spirits.”
DEVILDRIVER vocalist Dez Fafara says, “As a lyricist, I look at these outlaw country artists, they’re unbelievable.” Hank3 adds, “For me, writing country music, or outlaw music, is trying to keep it as real as possible.”
Completing this unprecedented project is a host of metal and country luminaries providing unforgettable cameos: horror metal icon Wednesday13 lends his incensed rasp to George Jones’ “If Drinking Don’t Kill Me”, 36 Crazyfists frontman Brock Lindow brings fire and soul to Steve Earle’s, “Copperhead Road”, and Fear Factory’s Burton C. Bell helps to turn Richard Thompson’s anti-war classic, “Dad’s Gonna Kill Me”, into a brooding gothic metal extravaganza. Meanwhile, Lamb of God members Randy Blythe and Mark Morton contribute to an exhilarating decimation of Willie Nelson’s “Whiskey River” before Randy makes a second appearance on DEVILDRIVER’s version of cowboy standard “Ghost Riders In The Sky”; the latter featuring the son and daughter of Johnny Cash himself, John Carter Cash and Ana Cristina Cash. The album also features the iconic voice of Fear, US punk rock legend Lee Ving, on Johnny Cash’s “The Man Comes Around” and David Allan Coe’s “The Ride”.
