Devius are a band from Argentina that plays a very progressive form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released 2009 album "Infinity Echoes".
The album starts out with an intro that utilizes both acoustic guitars and symphonic sounds and after the intro the music goes into a very heavy progressive death meal direction along with a great amount of melody and solos are a huge part of the music.
Once the growling vocals are added into the album all of the musical instruments start sounding a lot more powerful and you can hear some black metal elements being utilized at times and as time goes on by acoustic guitars make their return in certain sections of the recording as well as more thrash influences being added in and later on another instrumental is brought into the recording before making a return to the tracks with vocals as well as bringing in a mixture clean progressive and extreme metal parts.
With this ep Devius play a very progressive form of death metal while also having some black metal and thrash influences, and the production sounds very powerful for being a self released album along with song lyrics that are very in depth with philosophy and psychology.
In my opinion Devius are a very great sounding progressive blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Inner procession" and "Theory Of Murder". 8 out of 10.
