It’s been fifteen years since we started Devourer and the album we release now is a great way to celebrate the past fifteen years. It also gives you an idea of where we’re heading musically and where we’ve been the last couple of years. We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we did creating it.
On the leap day of the Gregorian calendar, or actually the day before but I wrote the post today, a teaser from the new album was released on this website and on SoundCloud. The backbone of the album is in place and the vocal tracking is progressing nicely. Johan V and I added some more guitar work and we’re working on other embellishments true to the ways of Devourer as well. This will without a doubt be our best work to date.
Tomorrow we start tracking vocals for the new album and I’m really looking forward to hearing Fredrik’s possessed howling on the brand new tracks! There are eight tracks on the album now with a total time of just over 40 minutes but before we are finished there will be at least one more.
Devourer has climbed to the number one spot on not just the local, but also on the regional metal rank on ReverbNation. A big thank you goes out to all the metal and Devourer fans that made that possible!
The first new song since the release of the single and video named Filth and its B-side Deathwatch was released today. It’s a single once again and it is called Pest. Filth dealt with the nature of humanity and the video ends suitably with vocalist Fredrik Håf exploding like an atom bomb whilst representing humanity as a whole. The lyrical theme of Pest is about Christianity’s oppression of the northern Aesir faith in the 11th and 12th century and features a bit of choir taken from the soundtrack of Dragon Age: Inquisition in the end of the song.
