9. DevilDriver, 'Beast' (2011)

I'm a big fan of DevilDriver and I have been since they first started. The reason why I picked this particular album is because there are a couple of songs on there which I absolutely love. "Black Soul Choir," which is brilliant. "Crowns of Creation," "Lend Myself to the Night." This album, Beast is, in my opinion, just a really, really good example of bands that are more melodic that still carry a hardcore backbeat, and that have great guitar players. There's some wonderful melodies, some really nice melodic things, and these guys actually sing multiple vocals and they harmonize. The whole picture that we get, I think, is really pleasant on the ears.
