Latest Devourment News
Below is our complete Devourment news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Relapse Records has issued the following announcement about Devourment recording a new full-length album:
"Devourment, the most brutal death metal band on the planet, has entered the studio to record the highly anticipated new album and first for new label, Relapse Records. The band is tracking at Mana Recordings in St. Petersburg, FL with legendary death metal icon Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, MORBID ANGEL). The album promises to be the band's heaviest, most crushing release to date and will see an early 2013 release. Tentative song titles include 'Fucked With Rats' and 'Fifty Ton War Machine.'"
Devourment frontman Mike Majewski commented on the upcoming record, “This will be the deepest album we have done for sure. Definitely expect the intensity, but also more thought out song structures. I would say a bit of a throwback to old school brutal bands, but with the signature Devourment elements.”
Further album details will be announced as they are made available. You can also stay up to date on Devourment over at the band's Facebook profile.
Back in 2005, Dimmu Borgir was a band still basking in the unholy success of its latest outing “Death Cult Armageddon.” And yet instead of launching into a new opus for fans to consume the band members decided on a new approach; they would re-release an early and often praised album (“Stormblåst”) by completely re-recording it, updating the sound with modern production and slap “MMV” on the end. There had of course been prior examples of bands making this choice, but it was perhaps here that best truly crystallized the new era of metal re-recordings. No doubt you have heard of similar re-recordings in the same vein, perhaps most recently Gorgoroth’s “Under the Sign of Hell 2011” or Burzum’s “From the Depths of Darkness”? Perhaps not, but that’s what I aim to uncover for you here. More...
The Maryland Deathfest organizers have announced that Death Breath and Devourment have canceled their scheduled appearances at the event this year and replacements have been named.
Death Breath has issued the following statement regarding their cancellation:
"Production difficulties with the complexity of the band being spread all over the world made an error in the schedule, so we simply had to cancel as we felt we couldn´t achieve a good performance. To do a one off show is actually more difficult than we thought. We are very sorry for this and wanna say thanks for understanding to the fans and the promoter."
Devourment canceled as the result of a member in the band attending to family matters.
As a result of these cancellations, In Solitude (Sweden) will be making the band's first U.S. appearance, and Skinless will be playing the act's last ever show, and with the original line up. In Solitude will be playing on Saturday, and Skinless will be playing on Sunday.
The final Deathfest schedule was to be released this Friday, April 29th, but these changes have delayed those plans. Expect a complete schedule next week.

It’s not often venues pack the house for a Tuesday evening show. However, it’s not that often that Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Vital Remains, and Devourment are in the same place at the same time. On November 9th, 2010, Brutal death metal fans came out of the woodworks and packed the Exit/In for this show, with even the venue’s balcony area being filled. Not your everyday sight in the “Bible belt” of America, many fans who were waiting in line on the side of the street sported shirts with some of the most obscene artwork known to metal on them. The doors opened unexpectedly late, with Devourment taking the stage as fans were still pouring in. More...
