The band was called Area and played cover versions of MetallicaSlayerand Pantera. The three were playing in a local band and talked to Fafara who said he was thinking about leaving Coal Chamber. Fafara said "Hey you guys write some heavy shit, and I want to get out of Coal Chamber". The band was originally known as Deathride, but later changed their name to DevilDriver because Fafara felt there were too many bands with that name; a band in Norfolk, Virginia, and a bicycle racing team.
Fafara's wife had a book by Italian witchcraft author Raven Grimassi on Stregheriaand came across the term 'devil driver'. The term 'devil driver' refers to bells Italian witches used to drive evil forces away. Fafara thought it was appropriate because it sounded "evil", and thought the term "suits his life". Fafara was brought up to "question everything" and was exposed to Italian witchcraft through his grandparents. DevilDriver's debut record was originally going to be called Thirteen[ 8 ] and then Straight to Hell.
However, Fafara claims it was changed "for so many reasons that I can't even go into. Music critics response to the album was generally negative.
