Devastation Complete 1987-1989
(AreaDeath Productions)

This is DEVASTATION from Croatia and out of all DEVASTATION’s I’ve heard this is hands down the shittiest one. This release consists of 2 old demos (“The Upcoming Mayhem” and “The Possibility Of Life’s Destruction”) and a rehearsal, released between 1987 and 1989. The production is very primitive, it sounds as if recorded into a tape deck, but that’s understandable bearing in mind where and when the whole shit was recorded. So what you get here is simple, punkish Speed / Thrash Metal, the musicianship is alright, nothing amazing or original, lots of useless solos, but the sound quality just kills the whole thing and why would anyone want to endure 78 minutes of this carnivale of crap is beyond me, but to each his own.,
