Diese Jungs sind mir echt unheimlich. Laut Beipackzettel existiert die Gruppe DEVANIC erst seit Anfang 2004, die vorliegende Promo CD “Mask Installed” ist seit Mitte September fertig. Trotz dieser verhältnismäßig kurzen Zeitspanne, hat die Band es geschafft, genügend Songs zu schreiben, um ein verblüffend hochklassiges Album auf die Beine zu stellen. Respekt.

Das Rezept heißt “Melodic Death Metal”, die Zutaten sind bekannt: geile Melodien, scharfe Gitarren, präzise Beats (gelegentlich geblasted), sowie eine ordentliche Portion “evil” Vocals, wahlweise gescreamt oder gegrowlt. DEVANIC sind allerdings schlau genug, nicht sinnlos drauflos zu knüppeln,
sondern legen gleich von Beginn weg großen Wert auf ein Mindesmaß an Eingängigkeit. Auch Abwechslung haben sich die Wiener in großen Lettern aufs Banner geschrieben, und so werden die Nummern immer wieder von ruhigeren Parts und zum Teil sogar von clean gesungenen Vocals abgewechselt. Was bei vergleichbaren Kapellen oft erzwungen wirkt, wertet hier das Songwriting nochmal deutlich auf. Ein weiterer hoffnungsvoller Bestandteil der österreichischen Metalszene ist geboren!

Ich bin wirklich gespannt, was von DEVANIC in Zukunft noch folgen wird. Sicher ist, daß sich die Suche nach einem Label nicht allzu schwierig gestalten sollte, denn wenn diese Band kein Potential hat, wer dann?
Wertung: 5.0 von 5.0

inventing the Austrian melodic death metal though by no means new, the eight pieces are not only extremely catchy, but also rich and expressive failed. Even the introductory guitar riff of “You Will See” ignites after a few seconds and is developing a good three minutes on an endless catchy – is already here the recipe for success of the five musicians, which is composed of very straight song structures, melodies, and numberless as good as any excesses, clearly. With this pattern the formation knits actually some excellent songs like the acoustic launched “I Am”, the push for a bit more “Reborn Again” or a little of SOILWORK reminiscent of “Ignorance” – is basically to “Mask Installed” so not a single weak track, not even the title track dominated by blast beats, which is comparatively much harder, therefore, in effect, but a very welcome change indeed for very varied, but stylistically congruent rest of the album represents. Singer Andreas Danzer reached here some unexpected depth regions, while the brilliant chorus (Highlight!) returns to the usual pitch – the approach is the band really well with the face, especially one by the varying degree of hardness is anything but predictable acts and thus a successful can create tension. The only downside of just under half an hour of playing time fairly short fancy audio recording is a little uncoordinated sound, the total gives indeed a plausible sound stage, for my taste, but from song to song still very varied – most of the mix sounds in any event at the Grand ” Dimension “. “Mask Installed” has become the bottom line is thus one of the strongest demonstrations of this year, the previously incredibly short existence, the band can even hope that the men may again increase to one or other shade! If one continues at a similarly high level, the recording contract will not be long in coming anyway. Those who already wants to convince you of the great quality, grab it!…
