"Undercover Devil 'Burn It Black'"

“'Burn It Black' has everything that a fan of Southern Metal might enjoy. Killer riffs, driving rhythms, HUGE choruses. Vocalist TJ Hobbs' graveled throat delivery is a breath of fresh air! Coupled with backup vocals from Bassist David Lee Bailey and Lead Guitarist Eric Ahart, Choruses to songs like "Informer" and "Adverse Affection" sound monstrous and ALIVE. Yes they sound like Pantera and Down. Yes they sound similar to Metallica in spots. But that doesn't matter. These guys have re-invented a style and are running with the cause! With the ability to blaze through thrashy cuts such as "The Beginning of the End" and to bring it down to an almost country style with "The Offering," Undercover Devil is as diverse as they come. 'Burn It Black' burns and churns through 9 heavy tracks with no dull moments throughout. Standout tracks include "Informer," "Supernatural," "Obey," and a personal staff favorite - the swamp laden and slow steamroll of album closer "I Am." Pay Attention.” - Fat Sound Entertainment


"Undercover Devil's 'Burn It Black' - Possible Album of the Year?"

“This is pretty special. A pinch of Pantera, a soupcon of southern rock and bit of balls; what have you got? One of the metal albums of the year perhaps. We can talk about the influences and sound-alikes all day, but this transcends them all, precise incisions made to sound like a spontaneous outpouring; for those who like their grits with...grit, this is a ruckus on the levee you need to rush to.” - Steve Smith, Powerplay Magazine UK


"Metal Nexus State of the Art Series"

“Undercover Devil is the perfect synthesis of five, seasoned artists playing as one. As stated on their website: “The mission of Undercover Devil is to expand a familiar sound with new grooves and original concepts lost in the modern Heavy Music landscapes. Five guys with five different backgrounds come together to create a new kind of HEAVY”. With a freaking bullet, their goal is an understatement of their end product. Everyone complains about modern music being unoriginal and boring. This band will cure you of that ailment right freaking now!” - Odyssey


"Undercover Devil review in Stencil Mag"

“Bringing the southern groove and riffs come Undercover Devil from Malvern, AR and the grooves are plenty with a foot tapping infectiousness that makes this a good pick for any fans Black Label Society to Clutch to Muddy Waters. "Adverse Affection" is a mighty start, and "The Beginning of the End" turns the tone to a more thrash style, slashing melodies in among the heavier vibe the song takes. The differing styles all fit well together, songs such as "Obey" and "Supernatural" are fast and furious while keeping the southern feel. The title track forms a bass and drum heavy backbone with some nice sweeping, melodic riffs. The most interesting song comes in "The Offering" which brings an eastern flavor and something a bit different to the rest of the album. Despite the slower tempo at moments they keep the groove strong and it works very well. This is a very accomplished debut from a band with a well defined sound, they offer something extra and are well worth checking out.” - AN, Stencil Mag
