To celebrate the release of their sophomore full-length album “Mausoleum”, Norwegian Metallers DEVAR are streaming the album in its entirety. It can be heard below,

and at the following:


Formed in 2002 by Devar, it was originally intended that the band should be a solo project, but,  recognising the limitations that this imposed on his vision,  the frontman decided to 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.   It is with this lineup that DEVAR has developed and grown into a much more reflective band, with a stronger focus on the more varied and progressive aspects of their music.

“Mausoleum” itself  is the perfect demonstration of DEVAR’s unconventional approach to music, drawing 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.

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, “Mausoleum” is mixed and mastered by Herbrand Larsen (ENSLAVED) at the Conclave & Earshot Studios.

“Mausoleum”  hits the streets on  the 29th September on Gymnocal  Industries in Digipak CD, Gatefold DLP and Digital formats. Artwork is by Tom Korsvold, photography is by Ronny A. Sangolt and tracklisting is as follows:
