In 1995, upon the demise of local Dallas based death metal band Necrocide, drummer Brad Fincher and guitarist Braxton Henry(Both of Necrocide) along with former me-at-us vocalist Wayne Knupp set out to push the boundaries of what brutal death Metalwas all about.Wayne decided to move back to his hometown of Chicago, Brad moved to San Antonio, TX to get his education. Months later bothWayne and Brad moved back to the Dallas area and decided it was time to form what would become the most abhorrent form ofmusical abomination to ever exist in the history of underground death metal. However, Braxton Henry had in the meantime alreadyformed a band known as DeadIndustry. Luckily Wayne knew a guy whom he called "The sickest guitarist ever" named Brain who heused to actually play with a few years before. What Brain was playing was a style that was uncompromising compared to a lot ofother guitarists in the genre. His intensity was unmatched, period. So after finally contacting him, Brain was introduced to the bandwhom musically, he clicked with instantaneously.Soon the trio put out a 2-song promo, which featured "Shroud Of Encryption" and "Festering Vomitous Mass". Several months laterwith the additions of then guitarist of Sintury Kevin Clark, and underground artist Mike Majewski, Devourment recorded one moresong, Choking On Bile, which would be added to the 2-song promo resulting in the 1997 demo released by Corpsegristle Records that gained such a tremendous fan base. The demo would be entitled Impaled. With this line-up Devourment were a completeoutfit. Or so they thought.Wayne Knupp decided to leave the band due to some internal problems leading up to and during the trip to New York. Brain phonedWayne and fired him from the band as soon as Wayne got back from being left in New York by the band. Wayne was tired of theinternal bullshit within the band anyway and moved back to Chicago. The band would have a hard time finding a new vocalist,somebody who could most importantly, compare with Wayne's brutal vocal assault. Their choice would ultimately beguitarist/vocalistof local band Detrimental, Ruben Rosas, also a long time Devourment fan who often could be spotted at Devourment shows in the crowd checking the brutal grooves from a fans point of view. Ruben of course was heavily influenced by Wayne in the first place.The band then landed a record deal in 1999 with United Guttural Records and released the debut CD Molesting The Decapitated.Then the unthinkable happened. After playing possibly their sickest show ever with such bands as Macabre, Deaden, Cephalic Carnage and Fleshgrind, Ruben would be arrested as a fugitive from justice. Ironically this was also the same night that Molesting The Decapitated was released. Not knowing what to do, the band decided it was time to part ways. But due to the overwhelming response from fans worldwide, Devourment reformed minus Brain and adding once again Braxton Henry on guitars and none other than Wayne Knupp on Vocals.Together they would record one new song entitled Babykiller, which, would be released along with the 3 songs from the Impaled demo and the 8 songs from Molesting The Decapitated. The release would obviously be called 1.3.8. No shows would ever be played though and eventually the band all but faded out.Ruben was eventually released from his 2 1/2 year incarceration and tried to rejuvinate the band. He eventually recruited various new musicians, played a few shows, but things never really materialized.A few years went by and Ruben, and original bassist Mike Majewski talked again about reforming the band and finally recording the band's long awaited second album. Erik Park filled in the position of drummer and the band went into the studio of August 2005 and recorded "Butcher the Weak". The album was release in November of 2005 and went on to gain critical success, as well as praisefrom Devourment fans all over the world. Ruben played the bass tracks on the record, but shortly after, Chris Andrews joined in on bass to complete the tightest and most intense Devourment lineup to date. Devourment continues to stay very active and intends to be a force in death metal for years to come « hide
