Devil's Canyon is the eighth studio album by American southern rock band Molly Hatchet, released in 1996 (see 1996 in music). The album was recorded seven years after Lightning Strikes Twice, with only Danny Joe Brown of the original line-up. During the recording of the album, Brown was forced to retire because of his precarious health condition and was replaced by Phil McCormack, who completed the vocal tracks. Although Danny Joe Brown is credited, he does not actually appear on the album, making this album the first to not feature any original members.

The album cover was painted by British artist Paul Raymond Gregory.
