Devourer Unleashes "The Wicked Ones": A New Era of Savage Sounds!

Get ready to buckle up your eardrums and brace yourselves for a headbang-inducing journey because Devourer is back, and they’re bringing the thunder with their latest offering, "The Wicked Ones"! Dropping like a bomb on May 8, 2024, this self-released beast of an album promises to be nothing short of a blackened death metal inferno straight from the icy depths of Sweden.
But what sets this release apart from the rest? Well, for starters, it’s the debut of the one and only Oksana Falk, a.k.a. Oksana Rage, on vocals and bass guitar. Yes, you heard that right—prepare to have your senses devoured by her spine-chilling growls and bone-rattling basslines. It's like having a Viking warrior serenade you with tales of conquest and chaos while simultaneously pummeling you into oblivion with their battleaxe.
"The Wicked Ones" isn’t just about introducing a new member, though. It’s about evolution. It’s about growth. It’s about two musical titans, John and Oksana Falk, joining forces to unleash a sonic onslaught unlike anything Devourer has delivered before. Gone are the days of remote collaborations; this time, the magic happened in person, and boy, does it show!
But let’s rewind a bit. After the departure of former vocalist Fredrik Håf, the band was at a crossroads. Enter Oksana Falk, arriving in Sweden with plans to form a new band. Fate, however, had other ideas, as the duo found themselves knee-deep in the creation of what would become "The Wicked Ones". It was a revelation—a realization that this wasn’t just any project; it was a continuation of the Devourer legacy.
And oh, did they engage with their fans! From tantalizing teaser videos to the mesmerizing music video for the title track, shot straight from the bowels of their rehearsal space, Devourer made sure to keep the metal masses hungry for more. And hungry they were, devouring every snippet of brutality the band dished out.
Since their inception in 2002, Devourer has been a force to be reckoned with, unleashing five albums of pure sonic mayhem upon the world. And with "The Wicked Ones", they show no signs of slowing down. If anything, they’re only getting started, poised to conquer new realms and unleash hell upon the unsuspecting masses.
So, dear metalheads, mark your calendars, set your reminders, and pre-save the album because "The Wicked Ones" are coming for you, and resistance is futile. Embrace the darkness, embrace the chaos, and let Devourer lead you into the abyss. Horns up, and let the metal reign supreme!
"The Wicked Ones" has me both thrilled and intrigued. The addition of Oksana Falk brings a fresh dynamic to the band, and her vocal prowess adds a new layer of intensity to their sound. Tracks like "The Atomic Redeemer" and "Fear Incarnate" showcase their trademark ferocity while exploring new sonic territories. Overall, "The Wicked Ones" is a triumph—a testament to Devourer's unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of their genre. Prepare to be consumed!
