After their much-lauded debut album "Ninewinged Serpent" in 2007 and a comprehensive European tour with Polish death metal overlords Vader, Sweden's blackened death/thrash commando Devian, who feature former Marduk members Legion (vocals) and Emil Dragutinovic (drums) in their ranks, mercilessly return with a second attack: The furious new album "God To The Illfated" will be released in Europe on the following dates:

Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Benelux: December 12, 2008
Denmark, Norway: December 15, 2008
Spain, Portugal: December 16, 2008
Sweden, Finland: December 17, 2008
France: January 05, 2009
Italy: January 16, 2009
UK, Greece, Rest Of Europe: January 19, 2009

Recorded once again at Art Decay Studio with Rickard Kottelin, Devian this time around decided to hook up with Hypocrisy/Pain mastermind Peter Tägtgren for further production duties and the intense mixdown of the album at the Abyss studio (Immortal, Marduk, Dimmu Borgir), while mastering was once again taken care of by Peter In De Betou of Tailor Maid Production (Dimmu Borgir, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquillity).

Commented Legion: "'God To The Illfated' is the result of Devian fusing together as its own powerhouse. Having the luxury of making music together with one's best friends made the new songs step up to a whole different league throughout the writing sessions: we all bled everything into the album, everything that we knew was Devian and explored as much new ground as we could. The extensive touring we did last spring showed us what really works for us... jacked up and confident from slaughter on the road we let all the fire from the live shows translate onto the songs and the recording-sessions 'til we all felt that unbeatable feeling of grand accomplishment. The feeling that we had a really special beast of an album on our hands."

UPDATE (thanks to SlaytallicA)

A first brand-new Devian track, called "Assailant", is available for streaming on the band's official MySpace.
