DEVASTATOR
DEVASTATOR
Conjuring Evil
(Old Cemetery Records)
49:12min

This review took a bit longer to do, as I was expecting the CD to arrive. Finally here, I just feel more comfortable to review the final product of this five blasphemers from the USA, to let you know if your hard earned Metal money is worth or not. One thing to notice is that the band again changed label; from Regimental Records to Death To Mankind and now finally in Old Cemetary Records. A nice touch in the presentation is that the CD actually offers two cover arts. You just choose which one you want. Probably a simple thing to do, but in my book a very convenient one! Now, there are the lyrics included, and they have not changed a bit. Again they Thrash for the devil. Also, their music style remains intact at the core, with just a few subtle changes. Whereas the last album was more directed in the early ROTTING CHRIST style, this new one now turns a bit more to the VENOM side. Even the vocals, done by the same guy as the last album now sound more and more to Cronos, and there are even some parts you can swear it is the VENOM front man screaming out his lungs. Again, they aimed for a more demo production style, yet this goes along well with the style. There are more solos this time, and they are very Heavy Metal influenced. But do not think wrong, they are still as furious and evil as before, they just added a bit more of musical spectrum to their unholy Black / Thrash attack. For the newer fans, if you like the style of NIFELHEIM or DESASTER, this is a mandatory listen, just expect a rawer and direct sound and a less polished production. After four albums, I still think their second one "Nuclear Proliferation", is the best one, probably due to a better production. But the few stylistic changes, and their total worship of old Metal bands without trying to sound like them, makes DEVASTATOR in my book a seal of quality few bands can offer. www.morbidforce.com, www.oldcemetery.tk
