Devastation~ Idolatry

Post by My Awesome Timothy on Sun Jan 03, 2016 4:25 pm

Completely missed this band back in the day, lyrics come across with Christian themes like bands like Opprobrium and Sword Of Judgment I guess.... any fans of Devastation from the early 90's?

Big fan here, especially of Idolatry.  I always considered it one of the last great thrash albums before the style fell almost entirely out of favor.  Their vocalist professes personal faith in Jesus and it does come across in some of the lyrics, for sure.  Hard to believe that it was the same band that created such a terribly boring debut only a few years prior!

Great band. Right up there with Sadus ( but I liked Sadus a bit more ) as far Thrash bands go.

I've heard stuff about the " Christian " content in their songs, but never really looked lyrics.

I have all their LPs and even an original shirt. Killer band! Idolatry is definitely one of the most aggressive thrash metal albums from the 80s/90s!

Good band but I definitely agree that SADUS is much better!

SADUS make most thrash bands sound like Disney music.

Looking forward to hearing ELIMINATE featuring an ex-DEVASTATION guitarist.
