Californian Groove Metallers DevilDriver have released a new video for 'Sail', taken from their latest album 'Winter Kills'.

The track is an AWOLNATION cover which has been given a makeover with the band's distinctive stylings which can be seen below.

DevilDriver frontman Dez Fafara told Loudwire, "We cover songs once in a while based on the song personally affecting me. This tune did just that. I relate to it in many, many ways and our fan base loved it. We made the song our own without compromising its original integrity one bit."

Devildriver's sixth studio album 'Winter Kills' was released in late August 2013 via Napalm Records and was met with overwhelming praise from fans and critics alike. 'Winter Kills' debuted at position No. 32 at the US Billboard 200 chart and entered numerous charts in Europe.

The band will be on the road this spring. At the moment they are on Australia at the Soundwave Festival, then travels will continue through Japan, the U.K. and Europe.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
