Dez Fafara may be one of the most enigmatic and and charismatic vocalists in the metal industry today. His work in Coal Chamber is still acclaimed and Devildriver has been kicking ass all over the globe for several years. The band is gearing up for the release of their sixth studio album Winter Kills, which comes out August 27th via Napalm Records (pre-order here).
To celebrate this upcoming release, Bloody-Disgusting got Dez to pick his Top 10 Devils in Cinema! It’s a great list that reaches outside of horror and brings you some incredible choices from over the years. Head on below to check it out!
Also below are the Trivium co-headline dates which also sees support coming from After The Burial and Sylosis.
1. Tim Curry in Legend is the best devil ever to be on the big screen! His portrayal of the great horned one will surely go down in history.
2. Jack Nicholson in The Witches of Eastwick. When his black car rolls into town for the first time you know you’re in for a good ride! Plus he had three woman at one time hanging around!
3. The Devil in Faust. This movie has so many scary elements for 1926 and the character that is the Devil in this is a perfect representation of Evil.
4. The Devil in Fantasia. His name is Chernabog. He is so spot on, he’s evil, mischievous, and summons minions!
5. Haxan has a terrifying Devil! This 1922 black and white is about creepy as it gets! He’s summoning demons and harassing monks!
6. Dave Grohl in The Pick Of Destiny is such a badass guitar playing, drumming, insane, metal loving Devil! He’s great to watch!
7. The Devil’s Advocate with Al Pacino as his majesty! Pacino is the perfect Lucifer as he manipulates everyone around him!
8. Linda Blair playing Satan in The Exorcist is a frightened portrait of possession of a young girl into a demonic entity!
9. The Devil in South Park! Hilarious yet… No, just hilarious!
10. OZZY!!!!!!!! No explanation needed! “What is this that stands before me?!”
