Device – Device

What do you get when you mix Disturbed with Filter? Why Device, of course. Hard rock outfit Device is made up of ex Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo and David Draiman frontman of Disturbed. Disturbed has not broken up but is on a hiatus so Draiman has decided to quench his musical thirst by working with Lenardo. They have called upon their friends like Serj Tankian of System of a Down and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine to help them out. Except something different from what they have done in the past. The music is a mix of hard rock, electronica and industrial. The ten songs on their debut, self-titled album have plenty of variety amongst them. One (“Vilify”) can be totally electronica while the next will have a full orchestral arrangement (“Close My Eyes Forever”) involved in it. Lyrically there is a lot of dark emotions to be found.
