Not to be confused with the book and movie of the same name, TDWP is a six piece Metalcore band from Dayton, Ohio formed in 2005. With a fusion of Christian-themed lyrics and Word Salad Title songs, TDWP has become one of the most successful Christian Metalcore acts around.

Tropes associated with The Devil Wears Prada:

  • Album Title Drop: "Sassafras" for With Roots Above and Branches Below.
  • Artifact Title: Subverted. They assumed the book was about anti-materialism, but after reading the book, they decided to rework the title to fit their own view.
    "When standing before God, he won't care about your sweet Prada scarf or Gucci shoes or whatever. It's a Christian reasoning for the name, we didn't name it to attempt at being fashionable or whatever." (Mike Hranica)
  • Christian Rock: Nowhere near as wholesome as one might think though.
  • Large Ham: Mike seems to enjoy being one, especially in his guest spot on A Day to Remember's "I'm Made Of Wax Larry" music video.
  • Lyrical Dissonance: In their more Christian-themed songs, reading the lyrics and listening to the hard music style can be slightly jarring.
  • Metal Scream: As per Metalcore fashion, Mike employs this a lot.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Most of the song titles on their first three albums have absolutely nothing to do with the lyrics or subject matter.
  • Soprano and Gravel: Jeremy (soprano) and Mike (gravel).
  • Surprisingly Gentle Song: Louder Than Thunder, sung entirely by Jeremy.
  • Zombie Apocalypse: The Zombie EP and its 2021 follow-up, ZII, naturally. The songs exercise every trope found in the genre.
