ITALIANO

The Devils sono: Erica Toraldo (batteria e voce) e Gianni Vessella (chitarra e voce), Il sound si ispira al trash'n'roll minimale dei Cramps, abbinato ad un wall of sound di "Jon Spenser-iana" matrice (agli albori) e che sfocia, manco a dirlo, in riferimenti a Gories ed Oblivians, ma strizzando anche l'occhio alla neo-scena noise-rocknroll di San Francisco. Insomma una bella ventata di aria fresca nel soporifero panorama italiano e che sta già varcando i confini. Nei THE DEVILS non troverete echi di psichedelia modaiola, temi hype e look studiato a tavolino come nella stragrande maggioranza delle nuove band, o politically correct, ma tutto l'esatto contrario, ma suoni deraglianti, ritmi martellanti, sfrontatezza, pericolosità ed anche un pizzico di provocazione, perchè "questo è ROCKNROLL baby". E così deve essere per chiamarsi tale!

Il loro primo disco è uscito il 24 giugno 2016. Rilasciato dalla leggendaria etichetta di Reverend Beat Man, la VOODOO RHYTHM RECORDS; ed è stato registrato nientemeno che da JIM DIAMOND (White Stripes, The Dirtbombs, etc etc) nel Subsonic studio di Montpellier in Francia.
