Malaysian metalcore band Devillians have released their debut EP entitled Existence on Honor Records (FFO: August Burns Red).
Here’s the info sent to us by the label:
“Existence, a result of research, planning and practice over the years of the band’s existence. With their new EP, Devillians now re-emerges from the depths of obscurity into the forefront of metal carnage.
Coming from different styles of musical influences, blended together in a mesh of metalcore goodness, Devillians’ new EP, Existence, marks a new start in the band’s agenda and ambition.
The EP has 4 monstrous tracks, all written and performed by the band themselves except for the back up vocals in the chorus part of the song “The Rodeo” which was done by Ardy from the band Naratu. Also, all 4 tracks in the EP were recorded, mixed, and mastered by Ardy (Naratu/NuBreax). Kicking it off with “The Rodeo”, this energetic super hyped tune serves as an invitation to the listeners to “open your arms and embrace” (quoting the lyrics from the song itself) their music. The second track was actually released as single on youtube with the title “Never Back Down”. They released the song’s lyric video and it instantly shared and spread throughout the local community. The song is about life principle, it’s about fighting for yourself, its about fighting for what you deserve and not giving up. The third song “Existence”, is pretty straight forward. It has catchy riffs with groovy breakdowns and strong vocals. The last track is quite special and it carries a different vibe compared with the rest of the songs. It’s a tribute song for the victims and families of the MH370 and MH17 tragedies. These horrible nightmarish incidents had taken the whole nation by surprise and everybody was upset. The band wanted to show their support and condolences so they wrote the song as a lamentation to share with the whole world.
In the near future, Devillians has gigs planned which pans across Malaysia notably in KL where the band will hold its EP launch party. The band will be participating with Thy Regiment “Iron Heart” Album tour where they’ll be playing at 3 different venues (Ipoh, Penang and Nilai). The band is also set to take to the stage for Musica Mania Launch Festival which will be held at Atas, Kelana Jaya, playing alongside local big names such as Naratu, Thy Regiment, Upon Arrival, Against Infinity and others. They are ready to bring metal rampage to the pit and to meet its friends and families head on as they traverse into the world of metal.”
