DEVASTATION - The Possibility Of Life's Destruction (12" LP)
United States | Death/Thrash
Emerging from the ever influential and colorful Yugo 80's underground, DEVASTATION were one of the first Thrash Metal bands from Yugoslavia (among Evil Blood, Witchcraft, Heller, Bloodbath, Bombarder and few more). Their style was a scorching Speed/Thrash aggression, think of early Voivod and Onslaught with HC/Punk influences (as a matter of fact they covered bands like Discharge and S.O.D.). The band recorded two demo tapes before the end of the eighties and appeared on some Balkanian and European fanzines getting an excellent feedback. Later on they changed their name to Devastator, and finally in the nineties into Hatr-ss. With this new name they recorded some studio works that were released as a cassette in 1993. This release highlights their best demo, "The possibility of life's destruction" (1989) here appearing for the first time on vinyl, remastered from the original reels for the best possible sonic impact... and to make it more complete and interesting we also added a CD including Devastation's 1st demo "The upcoming mayhem" (1987) and the two Hatr-ss demos.
