After their much-lauded debut album “Ninewinged Serpent” in 2007 and a comprehensive European tour with Polish death metal overlords Vader, Sweden’s blackened death/thrash commando DEVIAN, who feature former Marduk members Legion (vocals) and Emil Dragutinovic (drums) in their ranks, mercilessly return with a second attack: The furious new album “God To The Illfated” will be released in Europe on the following dates:

DENMARK / NORWAY: December 15, 2008.

DEVIAN anno 2008 offer an increasingly dynamic, vicious and aggressive sound that captivates the listener with massive, thrashing riffs, a heartfelt old school spirit and simply perfectly written songs.

Recorded once again at Art Decay Studio with Rickard Kottelin, DEVIAN this time around decided to hook up with Hypocrisy / Pain mastermind Peter Tägtgren for further production duties and the intense mixdown of the album at The Abyss Studio (Immortal, Marduk, Dimmu Borgir, etc.), while mastering was once again taken care of by Peter In De Betou / Tailor Maid Production (Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity, etc.).

Frontman Legion comments on the creation of DEVIAN’s sophomore album:
“'God To The Illfated' is the result of DEVIAN fusing together as its own powerhouse. Having the luxury of making music together with one's best friends made the new songs step up to a whole different league throughout the writing sessions: we all bled everything into the album, everything that we knew was DEVIAN and explored as much new ground as we could. The extensive touring we did last spring showed us what really works for us....jacked up and confident from slaughter on the road we let all the fire from the live-shows translate onto the songs and the recording-sessions 'til we all felt that unbeatable feeling of grand accomplishment. The feeling that we had a really special beast of an album on our hands."
