For many underground musicians and fans there is only one Devastation from the USA. The one from Chicago, one of the foudingfathers of death metal. The first demo features vocalist Troy Dixler, who was one of the first singers using the growl / grunt, nowadays the normal death metal vocal style. Back then his ultra-low growls were revolutionary. Dixler formed Sindrome after he left Devastation. The band recorded another demo in 1986 and an unreleased LP in 1987 named 'Dispensible Bloodshed'. The two cult demos from 1986 and the unreleased 1987 Lp are not available on CD. The massive 20 pages booklet contains extensive liner notes by Laurent Ramadier (Snakepit mag, liner notes for Repulsion, Hexx) and many notes from worldwide underground musicians like: Bob Bagchus (ex Ashpyx / Soulburn), Kam Lee (ex-Death / Massacre), Fenriz (Darkthrone), Michael Amott (Arch Enemy), LG Petrov (Entombed / Nihilist), Jeff Beccera (Possessed), Jonas Bjorler (At the Gates), Mitch Harris (Napalm Death) and many more. All were heavily influenced by DEVASTATION.
