There are several bands by this name, the most popular being the old school thrash metal band from Corpus Christi, TX USA. To this day, Devastation remains one of the most successful thrash bands to ever come out of Texas. Between the years of 1987 and 1991 they released three brilliant albums of unrelenting thrash and toured the country with the likes of Dark Angel, Sepultura, and Death. Their first show was opening for Anthrax in Texas that same year.
Despite growing popularity, the band came into hard times due to lackluster label support in the 90's and broke up after the tour for their third album "Idolatry". "Violent Termination" is old school thrash with an almost Venom-like musical quality. "Signs of Life" is full throttle, testosterone ingested, adrenaline rushing, heavy metal that straddles a fine line between death metal and thrash metal. "Idolatry" don't let up on the speed or intensity for one second. The production is raw and heavy which adds an overall appeal, a very powerful and crushing wall of sound. "Idolatry" is one of the heaviest thrash metal albums ever written, ranking up with the toughest of thrash monsters; Possessed, Dark Angel, Death, etc. As with those bands, Devastation were one the borderline of death metal, but never actually crossing over into blast beats or growling vocals. The guitars on this album are vicious, being produced by legendary metal factory Morrisound Studios...

Release features a special die-cut sleeve with embossed artwork in a fantastic layout by the hand of Mike Hrubovcak. Audio received special treatment by Robbert K (Disavowed).

I picked up the CD when there were heaps of it in the 1 Deutsche Mark bin in the local store, still spin it regularly.
Everybody else who is into aggressive US Death/Thrash the early 90īs way should commit.

Great band, someone should reissue Violent Termination (my favorite by them) and Signs of life if they have not been reissued already.

We're working on that.
Signs Of life hopefully by the end of 2017 and Violent Termination in 2018.

Working on getting copies.

Corresponded with the band in the late eighties, still got their first album and "Contaminated" demo cassettes, and early show flyers, all of which I got from the band directly. Glad to see these reissues coming.
