Featuring several members from the Finnish extreme metal scene, Arthemesia formed in 1994, working their way up the ladder via a couple of demos before their 2001 debut release, Devs Iratvs. Firmly in the symphonic black metal camp, the album offers few surprises for the genre but is solid for what it is, a frenzied black metal assault. The band may need another album or two under their belts before they establish their own identity, but Devs Iratvs is nonetheless a solid debut album.
