DEVOID To Launch Concept EP 'The Invasion'

Mumbai, India-based death/thrash outfit DEVOID will launch its sophomore release this February. The band has gone all-out DIY with "The Invasion", right from producing the EP to sales. The release is a concept EP which chronicles an alien invasion on to Earth, with each song as an episode.

Arun Iyer, DEVOID vocalist and rhythm guitarist, explains: "After the first album's disparity in the flow of thought, I wanted to experiment with writing a continual story. And the story of the human civilization is always one that is interesting; especially since it is destined to be doomed one way or the other. The sound on the EP is of four guys who love playing metal and wanted to push our limits creatively and technically to a newer level. Producing this was a ride I won't soon forget."

"The Invasion" will be a two-fold release, which also includes a three-part "making-of" YouTube feature documenting the EP production process. In addition to the EP release, the band's first music video is also in the pipeline and is expected to be out in February.

Formed in a decade when heavy metal was still in its infant stages in India, DEVOID's lyrics can be best categorized as anti-establishment/anti-conformist. In 2010, DEVOID released its debut, "A God's Lie", through Demonstealer Records. The band went on to win the Rolling Stone Metal Award for "Best Metal Album" (popular choice) for the release.
