||Poland keeps on delivering great releases
for the underground and this is certainly no different. I have to
say that Devilyn's
4th full-length, “XI”, is ultimately the band's best!
From the bands beginning years (about 10 years past), the technicality
alongside the brutality keeps getting more vicious and precise. To
those of you a little unfamiliar with Poland's Devilyn, they are kind
of similar to Vader and Decapitated with more technical riffs! “XI”,
or just “11”, consists of 9 tracks (8, without the 45
second intro) and is a very short 25 minutes playing time. Have the
numbers confused you yet? Nevertheless, Devilyn boast of thunderous
bass riffs, shredding rhythmic & technical lead guitars, absolutely
brutal & precise pounding on the drums and Lord Worm-like vokills.
“XI” is both diverse and uncompromisingly aggressive.
For further details, check out the tracks "The Enemy Within"
(which can be heard at either their web-home or Conquer Records web-home)
and "God Eater", which both display every members' musical
capabilities in full force! Hell I could probably just say buy it,
it's brutal! However, I'd rather just force feed you this disc on
a golden platter...
