Devian:  launch track from upcoming album “God To The Illfated”, reveal artwork!
DEVIAN, Sweden’s blackened death/thrash commando featuring former Marduk members Legion (vocals) and Emil Dragutinovic (drums) mercilessly return with their second attack, “God To The Illfated”. You can now check out the brand-new track “Assailant” at www.myspace.com/truedevian and witness that DEVIAN have forged a vicious mix of thrashing riffs, blackish aggression and a heartfelt old school spirit that mounts in simply perfectly written songs.

Vocalist Legion comments: "It’s with great pleasure we bring you the first crusher off "God to the Illfated". "Assailant" is a good indication where we are going with DEVIAN’s second attack. We just asked ourselves: "How should a Metal album sound like that we would love to pick up ourselves?" and went from there…breathing life into the music, fuelled by the uncorrupted enthusiasm of the days when checking out records in a vinyl-store was the best hangout you could have or get so blown away by a great gig that you could talk about it and relive it in your head for months. All the musical experience we’ve gathered since those days made us challenge the songs ‘til we felt they erupted into a perfect storm!"

“God To The Illfated” will be unleashed upon mankind on the following European dates:

DENMARK / NORWAY: December 15, 2008.
SPAIN / PORTUGAL: December 16, 2008.
SWEDEN / FINLAND: December 17, 2008.

Recorded once again at Art Decay Studio with Rickard Kottelin, DEVIAN decided to hook up with Hypocrisy / Pain mastermind Peter Tägtgren for further production duties and the intense mix-down of the album at The Abyss Studio (Immortal, Marduk, Dimmu Borgir, etc.) while mastering duties were once again taken care of by Peter In De Betou / Tailor Maid Production (Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity, etc.). The striking artwork for the album was once more provided by acclaimed artist Seth (Soilwork, Exodus, Paradise Lost, etc.), who had worked with DEVIAN as well on the debut “Ninewinged Serpent”.
