After a seven-year hiatus, Devils Wielding Scimitars returned with III. Although there's less jangle, there's not a big difference in sound from their earlier work, though the music and lyrics are a bit darker. After a strong beginning, the album loses steam for a bit, but bounces back with "Ache for You" and the standout track, "Did You Lie?" -- one of the best of their career. The catchy "Fallen Hero," one of the less moody tracks, is another highlight.
