Devian - Ninewinged Serpent

After leaving Marduk it was time for Legion (vocals) to start a new band. Legion started the band Elizium, but shortly after that he changed the name into Devian. With the help of Emil Dragutinovic (also ex-Marduk, The Legion), Joinus (Sargathanas Reign), Tomas Nilsson (Suicidal Seduction amongst others) and Roberth Karlsson (Edge Of Sanity), a worldwide deal with Century Media Records and an intense year of songwriting there was enough material to enter the studio. 

The music created in that studio isn’t that groundbreaking or anything, but damn it sounds good. Personally I’m not too fond of Marduk, but this is something different. A comparison with Marduk isn’t proper. The band says it's got references to bands like Slayer, Iron Maiden, Possessed, Morbid Angel, Dissection or even Motörhead. Once in a while you can hear some heavy metal influences in their blackened death/thrash metal, but I couldn’t find references to for example Iron Maiden. ‘Instigator’ ends with a kind of heavy metal guitar solo, but that’s it. 

This record is one of the better records released in this genre in the last couple of years. Bone crushing songs with a lot of anger in it and without making compromises. Besides the songs also the mastering and mixing of the album is done very well. This is truly violence in a good way!
