Devour: Self-titled 12"+CD

Sorry State Records

$3.00 $10.00

Raleigh, North Carolina's Devour were born from the ashes of Cross Laws, but rather than simply picking up where that band left off, the remaining members expanded to a 5-piece and followed the long southern tradition of adding traces of metal into our hardcore. What emerged was a record that is remarkably dense and complex, recalling the very best of the mid-80s trend of hardcore bands "going metal;" think Corrosion of Conformity's Animosity LP, Final Conflict's Ashes to Ashes and Septic Death's Need So Much Attention. There's also a heavy Japanese influence; people who have seen Devour live have compared them to Judgment, Lip Cream and Bastard, a connection only made clearer by this record's astonishingly heavy and powerful recording. In a scene where so many bands simply want to replicate something that has already happened, Devour sound remarkably fresh and progressive, and without losing a single thing you loved about hardcore in the first place.

I feel that the music on this release is truly special, so we've put together a package meant to be as killer as these tunes. All first press copies include the record and jacket plus a GIANT 24"x24" poster, a Devour sticker, the lyric sheet, and a pro-duplicated CD featuring the LP in its entirety along with a TON of bonus material including outtakes, demos, a live set and other surprises. Here's a pic of the whole package (note: the white vinyl is currently sold out):
