If you’re a fan of Melodeath bands like In Flames, Soilwork, Arch Enemy, Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum and Mutiny Within, then Devolver are a band you need to check out. Melodeath is my favourite sub-genre of metal and I’m pretty impressed by this single, A Life Lost. It has everything I like about Melodeath: melody, power, passionate vocals and slick musicianship. Check them out at the links below.
Hailing from Grand Prairie, AB, DEVOLVER is an explosive, progressive, groovy, melodic quintet inspired by the extremity of bands like Soilwork, Whitechapel, In Flames, Born of Osiris and Gojira. Formed in 2015, the band unleashed their self-titled debut album in 2016 that featured a variety of vocalists such as Ryan Sorensen (Apex, Fortress), Jamison Friesen (Renewal, Singularity), Anthony Notarmaso (Stillness) and Scott Oatway (Terminal). The eight track deliverance has been a stepping stone for the five piece to grow and become a much talked about band on the Alberta metal scene along with sharing the stage with Protest The Hero, Protosequence, Windy City Slaughter and more.
Now with full-time vocalist Chris Brown to solidify their line up, DEVOLIVER are satisfying the growing hunger of their legions of fans with the debut of his aggressive tendencies on the new single “A Life Lost” premiered exclusively on PureGrainAudio.com.
The band comments:
“This new single will be a natural follow-up. It should also further the point that Devolver’s music will always move forward and progress from release-to-release. The experience we want to give fans is one of anticipation, surprise and excitement with each release. We are not one to write the same content over and over, and we want our fans to be aware of that with each release. Our sound will always move forward.”

Plans for touring across Western Canada in 2017 and 2018 are in the works along with more music. DEVOLVER always strive to play the best show that they are physically capable of, whether it’s for ten or for hundreds of people, they live to involve the crowd for a memorable moment they will not forget.
