WATCH: “Through the Depths” by Devildriver

It’s time to face your demons with Devildriver!

With nine albums under their belt, the metal icons entered their 3rd decade with the two-part Dealing with Demons Saga: Dealing with Demon I and have now announced Dealing with Demons Volume II will be out on Napalm Records on May 12.

The album was produced and engineered by Steve Evetts and additional engineering provided by guitarist Mike Spreitzer. The band has said Dealing with Demons Volume II is inarguably heavier and relentlessly harsher than its predecessor and that it also reaches the darkest recesses of frontman’s Dez Fafara’s psyche.

Of the song, “Through the Depths”, Dez 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 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.
