The quintet's full-length debut is tentatively due next year.DEVIL, which hails from the Norwegian city Nes (in the province Akershus), plays a mixture of hard rock, heavy and doom metal in the vein of PENTAGRAM and BLACK SABBATH. So far the band has only released one demo, "Magister Mundi Xum" (through Unborn Productions/Iron Bonehead). Commented DEVIL: "DEVIL is very satisfied with signing [to] Soulseller Records, a label we feel are personal, dedicated and reliable, and we're very much looking forward to presenting DEVIL through Soulseller Records for metal fans out there. "2011 will be a good year for us, it seems, and with an album featuring great heavy doom rock out hopefully in the spring, we're ready to take this monster on the road, and are looking forward to both recording and live appearances."
