Formed in 2005, Devoid has been one of the forerunners of Indian metal. The band has just released a new single ‘Drop Dead Gorgeous’. According to the band:
“Sonically, the track is the heaviest release yet, signalling the band moving from its former Death Thrash roots to a more aggressive Death Metal sound. Drop Dead Gorgeous holds a mirror up to modern society’s obsession over social media representation of reality.”
“As someone who grew up in the social media age, we saw the genesis, the rampant percolation, being connected at all time on another level without ever feeling this connection, and now the entire meaning of the human experience viewed as stories. We had collectively felt the need to talk about this… change,” said Arun Iyer, the band’s frontman talking about the idea behind the track.
