Metal fans have spoken, and they say that to fully appreciate The Devil Wears Prada, the band absolutely must be seen live, making TDWP tickets a valuable commodity. The Christian metalcore band from Dayton Ohio are committed to a divine cause—to rise above an unsatisfying life of petty materialism and aim for more spiritual pursuits—and nothing drives the point home like TDWP’s ominous songs scream-growled by frontman Mike Hranica. Like a shining beacon of hope, Jeremy DePoyster’s crystal clear vocals counterbalance Hranica’s guttural tones and soar far above Chris Rubey’s high octane guitar, Jon Gering’s haunting synths, and bassist Andy Trick and drummer Daniel Williams’ hard-driving rhythmic foundations. In concert, songs like “Care More,” “Black and Blue,” “Rumors,” and “War” reach a completely new level of loud. As an ever-evolving band that never appears content with the status quo, The Devil Wears Prada will no doubt remain one of metalcore’s premiere acts alongside As I Lay Dying, August Burns Red, and Parkway Drive.
