As part of the lead up to Devildriver‘s sixth studio album, Winter Kills, the band has released a brand new for “The Appetite” track.
Judging from the comments on YouTube, it seems that fans are somewhat divided over the Dan Burke directed video, which oddly (or not so much) reminds me of The Offspring’s “Pretty Fly (For a White Guy).” On one side, we have fans defending the video as a piece of satire. And on the other side, some fans are insulted by the lack of effort put into the video and the false depiction of a metalhead. OK, if you set aside all the exaggerated things this guy does, is this really what a metalhead looks like these days?
Let us know what you think of the video. Are you insulted or is this just a funny video for you?
I can’t say that I’m a fan of the video, but I do love it when our metalhead gets on the subway and practically sits on top of the hipster. That would be awesome to do. Actually, we should have a national “sit on a hipster” day, you know, because it would be ironic.
Winter Kills details
On August 26th, Devildriver will release Winter Kills on Napalm Records. The album will be available in four configurations include a Deluxe Digibook with CD (includes 2 bonus tracks: “Shudder” and “Back Down To The Grave”) and Live DVD (featuring 45 minutes of live, raw footage), standard CD version, digital version, and, for the first time in Devildriver history, a 2LP Gatefold edition.
