DEVOLVED Name New Album

Australian tech-metallers DEVOLVED have set "Calculated" as the title of their forthcoming album, tentatively due later in the year. The CD will feature 11 new tracks as well as two bonus tracks, one of which is a cover of METALLICA's classic "Battery". Samples from the new album are now available on the band's official web site,

In a recent interview with the Primal Agony web site, drummer John Sankey offered the following update on the recording process of the new CD: "We have finished all the tracking for the new CD now and it sounds huge! We have put a lot of time into this recording, as we did with the 'Technologies' album, to ensure it will be as good as it can possibly be. It would be too easy to rush an album just to get it out on the shelves and to have it there for the fans but that's not how we work in DEVOLVED, we make sure it is something that will be worth waiting for and that will stand up to anything else out there on the international market.

"There is a lot of interest world-wide in this new album because of the success of 'Technologies', we are definitely confident we have written a follow-up CD that will blow everyone away and show we are more than capable of consistently creating great heavy music!

"We are about to finalize a new contract with an American based label, they will schedule the albums release date and touring schedules. I know they are keen to get the CD on the shelves without wasting time so I expect it to be available world wide in the coming months."

Regarding the musical direction of the new material, Sankey said, "The new songs are more extreme, more erratic and straight out insanely HEAVY! We have definitely kept the signature DEVOLVED sound and formula, but we have refined that sound even further on this album.

"I know it's a cliché to say the new album will be heavier and is the best thing we have done so far, every band says that, but this is certainly one album that will back up that statement.

"I have no doubts the international metal community will be pleasantly surprised by the sheer heaviness and intensity we have created with these new songs."
