Devian:  kick off European tour with DEICIDE today, confirm next touring activities & announce new bass player!
Busy times in the DEVIAN camp! The Swedish blackened death/thrash commando featuring former Marduk members Legion (vocals) and Emil Dragutinovic (drums) has just released its much-lauded new album “God To The Illfated” and will kick off the Winterfest 2009 European tour supporting new labelmates Deicide today! This will also mark DEVIAN’s first tour with new bass player Carl Stjärnlöv (Diabolical).

Furthermore, the band has just been confirmed to support Unleashed and Belphegor on the “Hammer Battalion North” Tour February – March 2009 and vocalist Legion comments as follows: "Despite the fact that I’ve been on the road since the mid 90ies, Scandinavia is almost untouched ground for me. It seems appropriate and fucking cool to take DEVIAN out on our first Nordic leg of touring supporting Unleashed, one of the forefathers and iconic acts of the Northern scene. Hell over Scandinavia! Hail!!"

Both tours are a massive opportunity for DEVIAN to showcase their intense new album “God To The Illfated” live. The follow to 2007’s “Ninewinged Serpent” captivates the listener with an extremely dynamic, hellish aggressive sound built upon massive, thrashing riffs, a heartfelt old school spirit and simply perfectly written songs. The album’s initial pressing is available as limited edition CD including a special O-Card packaging, two exclusive audio bonus tracks and a free band-logo sticker.

You can preview none less than six songs of this vicious effort in a webwheel presented by Rock Hard (D), Terrorizer (UK), Imperiumi.net (FIN) Metal.de (D), Vampster.com (D) & Powermetal.de (D). Just head over to www.devian.se!
