Surprise! I didn't even think these veterans of Greek Black scene are still alive! After two albums released at Mascot Records, DEVISER comes back in forth, in metallic scene, with a new material, more changed and up-dated to modern Black Metal standards. In other words, the five gave up Thrash and Old Black Metal weight and acquaint themselves with atmosphere, melodic and rhythmic aura. Therefore we find violin, female voice, Doom passages...rather alien ingredients on the former albums, "Unspeakable Cults" or "Transmission To Chaos". Do not think DEVISER lost touch with real things and turned into Disco Black Metal! On a Black background, which reminds me of ROTTING CHRIST first material, with an extreme voice yet quite in harmony with the entire continuance of the sound, the Greeks develop some modern elements in an imaginative manner while the bombastic keyboard is just the metronome of the whole musical structure and concept. It is about a fresh sound, a volatile rhythm, a terrible strength and a professional performance. Nothing new or avantgardist, just a sound based on the old skeleton of extreme Metal which accepts-hardly but intelligently-the present Black Metal modernism. A real Cult band for the Greek scene...
