From the press:
A sonic devastation! The sonorous breakdown! A blast that comes into your years and make you bang your heads all the way! That urge to mosh! I introduce you Devastatiön and ?Drink With The Devil.? A pure piece of how Metal can be of a pure destructive urge. Social criticism rocked by a sonic mass of angry Metal forces. ?Drink With The Devil? is only five tracked, but the pouding is enough to please. Devastatiön are a band with lots of hardcore influences. Right-in-the-face fast and furious music. The way Metal has to be. Devastatiön and ?Drink With The Devil? defy the speed of light to bring us the finest. Just listen to ?Reborn Through Fire? to check out how Devastatiön teach us a lesson of how speed can still prevail. Punk influences are clear not only on lirics, but also on the cadence of songs. The drumming goes from simple punk beats to modern double bass. ?Society Will Die? has a kind of martial cadence that features all the anger that Devastatiön desire to show. ?Drink With The Devil? is an effort full of angry, no doubt about it. Hence, it?s the beauty of it. Anger is the driving force of Metal. My best shot here is the first track, ?Drink With The Devil.? I like the speed and the aggression. Killer guitar fast riffs in the best teutonic speed metal tradition. And the singer that sounds like an even angrier Accept?s Udo Dirkschneider. The point is simple: we need more bands Devastatiön. We need more bands that say that our society is sick. Or maybe, if we don?t straight up soon, we?re gonna have a ?Drink With The Devil? ourselves. What are we gonna do?

DEVASTATIÖN hail from Belgium, and having initially started out under the name Black Fuel in 2004, their music was always pushing the limits of speed, aggression and melody. With two albums under their belt, the band continue to grow and explore new territory. Drink With The Devil is their first recorded delivery since their second album, released in 2015. The title track starts with a fast riff, that shakes the listener?s speakers upon first listen. Moving into tremolo picking common in black metal, the vocals contain a harshness that fits quite well with the style of music, the blast beats adding into a sense of urgency within the music. Raped by God is next, starting with an all-out assault on the senses. Thrash metal at its finest, bringing echoes of Kreator and perhaps Sodom to the mix as well. The first two songs on the E.P. are definitely songs that should be added to the setlist. Defilement, is fast and heavy, which is really all that needs to be said. It carries the flow of the previous two songs very well.
Society Will Die contains quick riffs and the breakneck thrash that one has come to expect from DEVASTATIÖN. Reborn Through Fire continues the neck breaking intensity of the rest of the E.P. a solid closer and one that is sure to bring many fans crawling back into mosh pit when played live. Drink With The Devil is a taste of what DEVASTATIÖN can do, and it will be interesting to see how they develop from here.
