Devil Sold His Soul - Belong ╪ Betray Cover

There's still life in 'em yet...

Replacing a frontman tends to be the beginning of the end for most bands, but here Devil Sold His Soul have managed to steady the ship while bringing new singer Paul Green firmly into the fold. From the off, they hit you in the head with the wallop of ‘Devastator’, a track that showcases their knack for melding pretty post-rock with metalcore’s vitriolic pummel. Green holds up well throughout, demonstrating considerable range and perhaps a richer palette than his predecessor; and while things would benefit from a bit more ambition, the new mix proves potent, and suggests that this band still have life in them yet.
