Their music alongside with the look of their videos, promotion pictures and the lighting design of their live shows culminates in a sub-genre that surely wasn’t invented by them but will make waves in the extreme metal scene - especially with “The Devourer”.
Its predecessor “Invader From Beyond” already captivated the listener with its attention to detail and its self-created lyrical universe and story-telling besides its omnipresent spherical and futuristic sound character. Contrary to their focus on mid-tempo on that one, “The Devourer” shows Damnation Defaced at full throttle. Songs like “Between the Innocence and Omnivores” or “Race for the Grail” include a huge portion of attacking blast beat and double bass madness which brings more variety into their songwriting than ever before. Nonetheless, a slower paced song like “The Dark Companion” also underlines the versatility of this record.
