First up is John Boecklin, who is currently laying down the drum tracks for the upcoming, yet untitled, album.

Groove metal? Are you f***ing kidding me? DevilDriver is groove metal like Counting Crows are black metal. I'm not dissing them...they are great...but definitely not groove metal.

Groove Metal? maybe a little, but i thought that they might have been some heavier form of metalcore or maybe Melodeath, but im not entirely sure on Groove Metal.

Devildriver have a groove metal element but so do Sevendust, And no one would call them groove metal. I think DD are textbook American melodic-death metal but a case could be made that they are of alt-metal stock as well.

As helpful as genre and sub-genre classification may be, I think the lines blur for a lot of people on which bands fall where. There's a lot of overlap and subjectivity to take into account.

I'll give the new album a spin. I wasn't head over heels for Beast, but I'm still willing to listen to what they offer, based on past successes.

Also, I've never really pinned down what to classify them as, sub-genre wise. However, I think RememberMetal? hit it dead on.

DevilDriver are kind of a melting pot and hard to narrow down, so I simply call them metal, in the best post-Pantera American tradition.

"post-Pantera American tradition(al) Metal".... i like it :)

I guess I don't really hear the 'melodic death' asignment, but then, everyone knows I'm pretty dyslexic when it comes to hybrid genres of developed subgenres of established primary genres etc and so forth....all that sh!t freaks me out ;)
