With Roots Above and Branches Below

With Roots Above and Branches Below

For their third album, The Devil Wears Prada flesh out their crushing approach to metalcore, vacillating between dramatic extremes with brutality and finesse. Jeremy DePoyster's melodic, smooth-as-marble vocals provide an earnest contrast to Mike Hranica's gnashed-teeth growls on tracks like "Dez Moines" and the death metal-inflected "Ben Has a Kid." Meanwhile, the album’s subtle sonic details—the orchestral stabs and mincing piano on "Big Wiggly Style," the icy synthesizer bridge on "Danger: Wildman"—add a breathtakingly cinematic sense of scope.
