Devil You Know: They Bleed Red
Howard Jones merges the groove and the grief
Given his recent revelations of reaching the brink after leaving Killswitch Engage, the metal community realised how lucky it was to still have Howard Jones with us, let alone making great records.
Last year’s debut full-length, The Beauty Of Destruction, was a competent melding of minds full of gusto and purpose, but They Bleed Red is a far more focused, intense effort that shows Devil You Know are a band worthy of their status. Opener Consume The Damned is a clear statement of intent, bulldozing its way into view with muscular riffs and Howard Jones’s monstrous vocals dominating all in their path.
