Devastation

Devastation were one of the many second-division thrash bands that existed during the thrash boom of the late eighties and early nineties. Though perhaps not the most unique of the bunch, they certainly were a fine band, as shown on their final release Idolatry, playing an intense Dark Angel style of thrash to good effect. There were just too many thrash bands in the underground at this time for many of them to break it big, but Devastation did enjoy a fair amount of success through their three-album run. The band reformed in 2008 for gigs and had plans for a new album, but that never happened.
