Light the Torch Albums Ranked

Light the Torch (formerly Devil You Know) is an American metalcore supergroup formed in Los Angeles in 2012. They are currently signed to Nuclear Blast Records and have released four albums: two under the “Devil You Know” moniker (The Beauty of Destruction and They Bleed Red) and two under the “Light the Torch” name (Revival and You Will Be the Death of Me). On July 26, 2017, the band announced via social media that they have changed their name to Light the Torch, without an explanation beyond stating “A full statement will be made soon and a new album is very close to being completed. It’s a new beginning and we couldn’t be more excited.” Jones revealed in an interview on October 13, 2017, that the band had to change its name due to legal issues surrounding Sankey’s departure from the band, and how the latter wanted to claim part copyright of the name. Light the Torch released their first studio album Revival on March 30, 2018. The band released their latest album, You Will Be the Death of Me, on June 25, 2021. On April 9, 2021, the band released their single “Wilting in the Light” on YouTube from their latest album You Will Be the Death of Me.

2. You Will Be the Death of Me (2021)

“A good record for sure but it’s typical Howard Jones fare, which really isn’t a bad thing. It’s not like I want him to record a techno album or anything, It’s just bog standard stuff but it does have some good melodies and what not. I like it.”

1. Revival (2018)

“This is really the third Devil You Know album; they had to change their name due to legal issues surrounding the departure of former drummer John Sankey. So you should know what to expect here. I find it to be good but quite one dimensional. This is the kinda stuff Howard has been doing over a decade except these songs are just about in “diminishing returns” territory. It’s just hard to pick out any highlights here when most of the songs sound the same. Anyway, it’s solid workmanlike material that should have a hard time offending anyone. Fans of KSE and the other two Devil You Know records will enjoy this.”
