Devast are a band with members from Algeria and Argentina that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very brutal and technical form of gore/death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Apocalyptic Human Extinction" which was released by Gore House Productions.
A very dark sounding intro starts off the album along with some touches of noise and avant garde music before going inno a very fast and brutal direction that also introduces blast beats and deep death metal growls onto the recording and the solos and leads are done in a very technical fashion and you can also hear melodies at times.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and touches of grindcore can also be heard at times and as the album progresses elements of slam are added into the mid tempo parts of the tracks while the vocals also start getting more guttural.
Devast creates a recording that remains true to the technical and brutal style of death metal from their previous release while also showing some progress and dropping the deathcore elements, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover death, murder, extinction and apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Devast and if you are a fan of technical and brutal death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chaotic Proliferation" "Chapter Of Neverending Torment" "Catashropic beastSpawn" and "Apocalyptic Human Extinction III". 8 out of 10.
