Biography

When he announced his departure from Killswitch Engage in early 2012, no one knew what was next for Howard Jones, least of all himself. For a while, the soft-spoken belter faded into relative anonymity until he resurfaced as the singer for Devil You Know, together with guitarist Francesco Artusato (ex-All Shall Perish), ex-Fear Factory drummer John Sankey and bassist Ryan Wombacher. The music industry is quick to label a new project involving established and experienced musicians a ‘supergroup’ but their debut ‘The Beauty of Destruction’ certainly delivered the kind of quality you’d expect from musicians with this pedigree. Follow-up ‘They Bleed Red’ (2015) features a band that is clearly moving away from the heritage of the individual band members, creating a masterful blend of contemporary metalcore and traditional metal. A must-see if you’re into metalcore and highly enjoyable if you’re not. (Text: Steven Verhoeven / Translation: Nick Devos)
