A gig in Flensburg, though not attended by many, still left a big mark and due to the good response Devastator was invited to play at the Wacken Warm Up Party 2004 at the same location. Of course this opportunity was used to bring another sacrifice to the beast of brutality. More songwriting took place; the new songs got more complex and accordingly the overall sound got more brutal and professional. It was time for Devastator to record their first demo entitled Demo 2004.
The songtitles "Tortured To Death", "The Art of Selfmutilation" and "Eternal Slavery" dont need any further explanation. After a long mandatory break due to an illness of vocalist Lenny, which lasted until summer 2005, Devastator orientated themselves towards a more technical execution of the auditory canals. Even more complex songs were created, which featured not only higher speeds, but also a bigger potential of power and brutality. Because of internal problems Devastator parted ways with bassist Stefan at the end of 2005, and a new bassist had to be found. One month later Falko (Stormwarrior) took the position, just in time for the upcoming gigs with Eisregen and Pungent Stench, as well as with Nile, Yyrkoon and Psycroptic.
These gigs helped to increase Devastators name recognition and quite a few demos were sold. In September 2006 Devastator begins with the recordings for their debut album entitled Beyond Massacre, intending to finish recording and production in 2006. Devastator stands for brutality and power, with no respect to anatomic limits. Read more on Last.fm.
