A Devil's Din Streams Full New Album

A Devil's Din will release new album "Skylight" on June 17th, and today all the tracks have come online early. Vocalist / guitarist David Lines comments on the album:

"Essentially this album is really a tribute to the psychedelic experience. I drew on my own personal involvement with certain consciousness-expanding substances to create a set of songs that would take the listener on a journey, both lyrically and musically. Within these 9 songs there exists a certain contrast between the hallucinatory and the heavy. Obviously we also owe a lot of this album's influence to another era, not just by sound and texture, but by the spirit of adventure, daring and experimentation that was prevalent then and bring all of that to the world today, right now."

Bassist Tom G. Stout also adds, "Even though we are inspired by LSD trips, we still like to hit hard, and enjoy getting a little aggressive. You have to balance out the light with the darkness, because otherwise you're not being real." More...

A Devil's Din Streaming "Nature Of The Beast"

A Devil's Din is made up of 3 musicians born in the Old World who traveled across the ocean to find each other in Montreal, QC where they were drawn together by a mutual love of melodic, innovative, inventive and daring rock / metal tinged music.

New album "Skylight" is set for official release on June 17th to take fans on a new trip. Check out the album single "Nature Of The Beast" below. Vocalist / guitarist David Lines comments on the track:

"'Nature of the Beast' is one of the heavier tracks on our album and with a title like that, you'd expect that! But the beast in question isn't anything out of the bible, it's about the beast we all know and hate: bureaucracy! It sort of came to me while I was on hold with the phone company. Nature of the Beast, indeed.

"Sometimes a phrase or expression is enough to get me going songwriting-wise and 'Nature of the Beast' was no exception. It's a really heavy, deep, multi-layered saying. "What's the Beast? Why is that its Nature?" Musically the song starts with an interesting rhythmic guitar chord sequence, ran through a phaser and Space Echo with haunting lead bends echoing off in the distance, creating a dark, hallucinatory setting. Then everything drops out for a fast almost chromatic guitar riff, which kicks into overdrive and busts open like a ton of bricks.

"Maybe it's a bit of a formula for us, like Genus Novus and WARGASM! from the first record, but we love to start off with a spooky, trippy vibe before unleashing the heaviosity. It makes for a more interesting listening experience, at least we think so! We like the music to go places and not be so obvious. Maybe it requires more attention to get into to it, but for us, it's way more compelling." More...
