Device is a band formed by the lead singer of the band Disturbed after Disturbed went on hiatus.
I love this album. The first time I heard it, I was mesmerized by the articulate rhythm and the creative (and profane) vocals. The lead singer of this band is simply magnificent, and is pretty much made to sing for this band.
"Close My Eyes Forever" is an amazing song showing off Device's sweeter side, while you can gear up for "Vilify" where everything becomes heavy and loud and just as enjoyable. Lzzy Hale's voice, we all know, is amazing beyond belief, and Device took on the challenge of melding with it and mastered it like I simply can't believe.
"Out of Line" is about dictators who cross the line and do things that are horrible; using dogma to justify their terrible acts and when they get what they say is right, it's all really destruction. It is an anti-dictator song, as I've heard it described. A great part of this song is that Serj Tankian is singing, and Serj is "fantabulous" so this song was bound to be fantastic, and it was!
I really enjoy the line from "Hunted": "And now you know what it's like to become the animal."
I suggest you listen to this album. It's fantastic!
