When the song ‘A New Beginning’ comes blasting through your speakers mere moments into DEVIL YOU KNOW’s Nuclear Blast Entertainment debut, »The Beauty Of Destruction«, it’s clear: this isn’t merely another great metal anthem. It’s a battle cry; a statement of purpose; a scream for survival. From start to finish, this is a record that burns with emotion and intensity. The sort of record that pushes the competition to the ground. Very few debut records deliver this much.
No surprise that the voice at the churning vortex of unforgettable riffs and epic melodies IS none other than former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE frontman, Howard Jones. Having voiced the Grammy-nominated Massachusetts metallers though nearly a decade of touring and two gold records, Jones is at the top of his game here. Brought together with Italian-born guitarist Franscesco Artusato of THE FRANCESCO ARTUSATO PROJECT and ALL SHALL PERISH and drummer John Sankey of Aussie metallurgists DEVOLVED, who is also a long-time collaborator with metal heavyweights, FEAR FACTORY, DEVIL YOU KNOW isn’t merely an intersection of individual talents. It’s an expansive alloy of sound you’re not going to forget anytime soon.
