With their long-awaited sophomore full-length album “Mausoleum” due for release on the Gymnocal  Industries label on the 29th September, Norwegian Metallers DEVAR have given fans a second taste of what to expect with the release of the title track in digital format.

DEVAR’s unconventional approach to music draws its influences not only from the Extreme and Black Metal genres, but also from Avant-garde Metal and 70’s Prog.  Matched with a lyrical concept that takes listeners on a journey down the paths of fear, insanity, darkness and death in order to explore the decline of man, the resultant sound is one that is both original and unique.

Both the single “Masoleum”, and the entire album,  were recorded by Bjørnar E. Nilsen (VULTURE INDUSTRIES, TAAKE, HELHEIM) at the Conclave & Earshot Studios in  Bergen, along with Devar at the Alternate End Studios, and Ottoegil at Internasjonalt Farvann.  “Masoleum” is mixed and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) at the Conclave & Earshot Studios.

Cover art for the single “Masoleum” is by Tom Korsvold, photography is by Ronny A. Sangolt.  It is available in digital format from as well as from the following:

The band was originally formed as a solo project by frontman Devar in 2002, who, upon realising what was needed if he wanted to bring his vision to fruition, put together a full lineup that today consists of Devar on vocals, Obdsaija on  Drums and Percussion, Aadland on  Guitars and Ottoegil on Bass and  Keys.

Since the release of the band’s 2009 full-length debut “Alternate Endings”, “DEVAR” has matured into a more reflective band, and the resultant sophomore album reveals songs that are much more focused and with a more progressive touch.  As with the single, artwork for “Mausoelum” is by Tom Korsvold and photography by Ronny A. Sangolt.  Tracklisiting is as follows:

1. Mausoleum
2. House of Bones
3. Dead End Moon
4. Shadow Straggler
5. Cold black Rain
6. Narcissa Oriane
7. Ashes
