4.5 superbStrikeOfTheBeast | June 30th 17

Devastation had a bumpy start, but they eventually unfolded as a devastating force to be reckoned with their magnum opus Idolatry. Album opener "Deliver The Suffering" opens with an atmospheric sounding passage with an eerie piano line and creepy sound effects then explodes into a magnificent riff that fades into glorious tempo changes and kickass solos. They truly embrace death metal with their high speed thrash here, and the music follows a very progressive style. The result is an unrelenting force blanketed with VERY dense production, muddy yet thick as fuck, particularly the guitar tone and the drums. The vocals are much improved this time around, angry yet sinister in delivery, and the album presents 'real' dark themes compared to their earlier releases prominently found of "Souls of Sacrifice" with its dense riffing, eerie guitar solos, and dark vibe. The atmospheric touches and sounds here and there add to the constant sense of menace found here. Devastation took some hard lessons in the art of vile thrash with nice doses of death metal and prog. metal to keep things interesting, and you get one of the best prog. thrash and death thrash records ever recorded.
