Devoid are a band from India that plays a mixture of thrash and death metal and this is a review of their 2013 ep "The invasion" which was released by Transcending Obscurity India.
The ep starts out with an intro which uses atmospheric sounds and ethnic style guitars as well as other instruments and when the music goes into the first song the ep goes for more of death thrash direction along with a mixture of growls and screams as well as groove and melody and after awhile blast beats are added into the music which also leads to solos and leads.
As the ep continues the music continues its mixture of death metal , groove and modern day thrash while also sticking to mostly a heavy mid paced direction while also speeding up a bit at times and at times there is a brief use of spoken word samples as well as the leads getting technical in certain sections of the recording.
On this ep Devoid take the heaviest elements of modern day thrash, groove and death metal to create a very decent sounding and while it is not the most original sounding album it is still another fine example of extreme metal.
Song lyrics cover political and everyday themes while also having a good sense of their own country's culture, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound along with the bass guitar s being mixed down low in the mix.
In my opinion Devoid are a very decent sounding mixture of death, groove and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Invasion" and "Brahma Weapon". 7/5 out of 10.
