(8/10) This EP comes from a band, based in Asia. Singapore, that’s where Devouror has their home base and it’s Malaysian Metal Zone Records that releases a first EP of this exotic powerhouse.
Devouror plays blackened death metal that finds its roots in bands like Possessed, Death and partially Sodom. ‘Slay For Satan’ is a raw ride. Each of the four tracks is a merciless riff attack. The quintet fires on all cylinders and what surprises is the songwriting and the brilliant production.
This EP got a sound that underlines Devouror’s riff power while still being differentiated and clear. It becomes very obvious that Devouror isn’t a band of rookies that want to try out some first steps with a newly founded metal band. These five guys know what they are doing and the result is impressive.
I haven’t had these guys on my radar, but I must say that this blank spot is not blank anymore.
