DEVOID
"THE INVASION"
TRANSCENDING OBSCURITY INDIA

DEVOID is a Thrash Metal band hailing from India and started back in 2005. The band
quickly started building a strong following in their own country and soon after around
the world. These guys started out as a straight up Thrash Metal band, but over the years
of many band member changes and influences coming into the band they have taking
more Death Metal influences into their sound. The band kind of sways back and forth on
that line between the two genres. The music is much faster, tighter and heavier than
Thrash Metal, which is where they mostly fall on the Death Metal side. The guitar work
is clean, crisp and precise Thrash Metal madness. It reminds me of a more modern
version of American Thrash Metal from the '80's. The drumming of Shubham Kumar is
phenomenal and so tight and brutal. It falls right on the line of Death / Thrash Metal. His
drumming style reminds me of a mix between
CARCASS "HEARTWORK" era mixed
with
SLAYER "SEASONS IN THE ABYSS" era and TESTAMENT "PRACTICE
WHAT YOU PREACH" era. The vocals are done in a groggy and throaty harsh Thrash
Metal style that has a gruff growl to it, but is still understandable. These vocals reminded
me a little of Chuck Billy of
TESTAMENT during "DEMONIC" & "THE
GATHERING" albums.
DEVOID is an amazing band and has become quite known in
their own country. After people hear "THE INVASION" I'm sure they will grow and
even bigger fan base around the world. Definitely one band to keep watching and I can't
wait to see what they give us next! An absolute must for fans of
TESTAMENT,
SLAYER, CARCASS, ANGELKILL, VADER
& WITCHERY.
