I’m like 78 percent certain that I didn’t remember that Corenament noisemakers Devil ANTHEM was releasing an album, FEVER, but I’m very glad for a less noisy morning on Twitter and a few extra minutes to follow up: While there’s plenty of sparkly idol cheer in here, it’s also clear that Devil ANTHEM isn’t going to be twee and precocious forever, and this is a good first step.

Before you check this out: If you aren’t familiar with them, would you say that a name like “Devil ANTHEM” might be a cool death metal outfit of society-rejecting senior idols with a very dark presentation, or a high-energy junior unit that rocks a little less than Party Rockets GT?
