Nordic-influenced Hellenic Black Metal War from the corpse-painted trio featuring Saevus Helcath (Former DODSFERD session-guitarist, but only before 2005), with vocalist Althagor, and female drummer Mechblastess! DEVATHORN's full-length debut album includes nine tracks of atheistic antidomatism and elite Vehement Greek Black Metal in its purest form. High-calibre attack, yet still in the brutal Orthodox vein of Rotting christ, Varathron, Absu, Melechesh, and Cult of Daath; all with an epic militaristic aggression, and an underlying headbanging atmosphere evoking old German Teutonic Thrash! Because of DEVATHORN's female drummer, obvious comparisons to Germany's Darkened Nocturne Slaughtercult are inevitable, though posititvely acceptable.
DEVATHORN spearheading the 'SECTA NOVA' -- Hellenic Anti-religious Black Metal!
Under the sign of Misanthropy / Nihilism / Occultism / Suicide.
* "DIADEMA" CD TRACK-LIST:
DEVATHORN was formed during Winter 2002 anno bastardi, by Saevus Helcath under the name VEHEMENT. After a few line-up changes, the horde took its present form with the joining of Althagor (in November '02) and Mechblastess (in September '03). The horde was re-baptized as DEVATHORN in January '05, and began working on new material of raw aggressive Black Metal. After some live performances [with Burial Hordes, Handful of Hate, Dodsferd, Abyssgale, Obduktion, Miasma, Black Winter, Code of Silence, etc.], DEVATHORN completed the recordings of the full-length "DIADEMA" debut album, originally self-released on cdr during September '06. More live performances are forthcoming to support the official CD release on BlackMetal.com Records; plus new songs for the second album are currently in the works.
