Dez from COAL CHAMBER talks Mudvayne tour, Devildriver 20th anniversary and early musical roots

After an absence of well over a decade, Mudvayne and Coal Chamber have joined forces for an EPIC Australian tour in February.

Coal Chamber were one of the first bands to weave detuned guitars, noisy textures, white knuckle intensity, hardcore punk, and hip hop like they were always meant to be.

Bridging the gap between heavy metal power and industrial groove at an infectious tempo, their self titled debut delivered the classics, Loco, Sway, Big Truck, and Oddity and was included in Kerrang! Magazines’ ‘Greatest Nu-Metal Albums of All Time’.
Their influence is undeniable.

The Everblack Podcast caught up with Dez Fafara from COAL CHAMBER to talk about their upcoming Australian tour with Mudvayne, his early beginnings in the psychobilly scene, 20th anniversary of the first Devildriver album and more!

Watch/listen to the interview here: 

Chamber Music and Dark Days followed respectively with the band dominating every festival and stage they appeared on, before 2015’s Rivals which did not so much press the reset button on their career as much as smashed the thing with a hammer.
