DEVILOOF is a band I’ve only gotten into recently and I’ve gotta say, if you like your deathcore heavy and with a side of insanity then this is the band for you. They’ve been quiet since their 2019 release 「鬼」so this is a welcome return to form.
I’ve been putting this single on repeat for the last few days. It’s a short seven minute ride but a fun one for sure. Newspeak reminds me of a sequel to TORTURE and I fucking love it. It amazes me how Keisuke can go from low gutturals to high shrieks instantly and cleanly. This whole track is basically a demonstration of what he can do and it’s nuts boys. I would also be wrong to miss out on the Japanese interlude right before the filthy breakdown. Mob Rule is the longer song but it’s just as awesome. Those crunchy tremolo picked riffs, the way the song begins and ends the same way…there’s a lot to like here. You just don’t hear stuff like this every day.
Anyway, new album from them soon I hope? It’s shaping up to kick some serious ass.
