8:18 is the fifth studio album by metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada. It is also the first album without founding keyboardist James Baney involved during the making of this album.[1] It topped the Christian charts and came in at No. 20 and No. 6 on the Billboard 200 and rock charts respectively, selling 16,000 copies in the first week.[2][3] It came in at No. 2 on the hard rock charts behind Avenged Sevenfold's Hail to the King.[4]

StyleEdit

The most prominent genre is metalcore and the track "Care More" has industrial influence.[5] Artist Direct has also described it as having hardcore influences and heavy metal sounds.[6] Ultimate Guitar described the album as both melodic metalcore and metalcore.[7] The title is an allusion to Romans 8:18.

Critical receptionEdit

At Alternative Press, Scott Heisel proclaimed it to be an excellently "solid record".[8] At HM, they affirmed this was "a refreshing work of self-awareness".[9] Alternative Press premiered the album in its entirety via their website on September 10, 2013 to promote the release.[10] Allmusic's Jason Lymangrover said the songs were "more visceral and accomplished than prior outings" and called the title track, Care More, and In Heart as the Allmusic track picks.[5]

The album was also released in high resolution (48 kHz/24bit) on HDtracks.com.[11]
