April 13 – DEVERIA – SUICIDE FOREST (Animated Insanity Records) – Review by Stefan

Rotterdam, New York-based Deveria was formed in 2008 by former Kid Bludo, Kyrie Ellison vocalist Chuck ‘Sirr Charles’ Woodard. The formation at that time was already dissolved after just two years, they released a self-titled 6 song EP which has been promoted during several gigs around Upstate clubs. FYI: Deveria shared the stage with greats like Flotsam and Jetsam, Vicious Rumors, Sonata Arctica, The Iron Maidens, Michael Angelo Batio, David Ellefson and many more.

After a long period of many years, it was announced that mastermind Chuck had taken up the thread again, 2018 became the year when Deveria began a second term. Surrounded by talented musicians, they worked fingers to the bone on new songs, a first single ‘Suicide Forest’ appeared on the last day of October 2020. A foreboding for what was to come in my opinion, with much appreciation for US Metal I present their latest full-length album, “Suicide Forest” came out on March 17, 2021 and is filled with 11 songs. Maybe you have never heard of these guys but if you are a fan of American styled Power Metal from the 80’s substantially, please don’t hesitate to take a closer look at the band’s newest effort.
