We’re getting close to starting the final mixing sessions of the sequel to the 2017 Devourer album Across the Empty Plains. When we started working on the new album we put tremendous pressure on ourselves but after over a year of development the song writing, sound design, concept and lyrics all pass our very high quality demands making it the best Devourer album to be released so far.
Today the third Devourer video of 2018 was released. The song is a remix of Finem Vitae Cura from our last album.
‘Addicted to Death’ was recorded the first time in 2015 at a drug rehab center by John using only the very limited amount of musical equipment available there. It was released online under the moniker Nastrand in 2016 as part of a three track EP. The lyrics are deeply personal to John and re-recording it in Devourer’s studio with Fredrik on vocals to release as a single felt right. The original recording and more information about it can be found at SoundCloud.
A video for the song ‘Throne of Agony’ from our latest album was released earlier today. It is the result of a unique collaboration with a Dutch collective of creators called Makers Monday, led by Amsterdam-based filmmaker Rick van de Dood. We are very pleased with the video and wish to thank everyone involved for their time and effort!

Our newest album was awarded 13 points out of 15 by Legacy and 8 out of 10 by Metalegion Magazine in their latest issues and we’re also interviewed and included on their sampler CD:s. The interview in Legacy became a bit too long to be included in its entirety in the printed magazine so they posted Fredrik’s answers online instead.
Across the Empty Plains is now available on the following digital music stores: Deezer, TIDAL, Amazon Music, Napster, 7digital, Spotify, Google Play and Anghami. It is supposed to be available from eMusic, Shazam, iTunes and 24-7 Entertainment too but I couldn’t find it there either because I couldn’t search the store because I have no account there or it hasn’t listed the album yet. You can still listen to the album in our discography too.
Today we released a song from our new album “Across the Empty Plains” on YouTube. In one week from now we will release it on Bandcamp free for streaming and downloading in high quality and in two weeks on June 1st it will also be released on most of the major digital music distribution services.
The album was entirely written and produced by Devourer and the cover art is the work of Juanjo Castellano.
