Order Of Ennead vocalist/guitarist Kevin Quirion writes:

Day 7 Off In Frankfurt:
The Stuttgart show got canceled so we had the day off in Frankfurt. Spent the day walking around with John Li and some guys from the Amenta. It wasn't the most interesting city in the world. While waiting at the train station Jarod from the Amenta ended up getting stuck talking to a meth-head. I could have interrupted, but it was funny. We ate a good Italian restraurant. Later that night met up with about five others including the guitarist for Samael. Ate at a Thai Restaurant and headed back to the bus.

Day 8 Frankfurt Batschkapp:
Another good show. We've been very consistant. Our best merch day so far. Germans like to get really drunk at shows, but they also support the bands a lot with cheering and fist pumping. This is something Luxemboring needs to learn. Backstage is very cramped and not very much room for 6 bands.

Day 9 Bochum Matrix:
This club use to be a brewery and its all brick and shaped like a tube. Sounded good when no one was in the room, but when it filled up the sound went downhill.
Great meal for dinner today, turkey with mushroom and cream sauce. Very cool backstage also with posters all over the walls. Took a very cold shower on arrival. I guess Europe hasn't discovered warm water yet. After Paris, this was the worst load-in. Too many steps and we had to wait for people to leave to load-out.

Day 10 Erstfeld Transilvania Live:
Switzerland is beautfiul and the club is huge. I walked around for about two hours by myself. The town was small, but right in the mountains. When I got back to the club I met up with two friends. They took me into town and I had Italian food. Lunch sucks on tour. You get nothing, but lunch meat, cheese and bread so if I can find a McDonalds, i go. I never eat there at home, but its something I know. Biggest crowd of the tour was tonight. Glen Benton decided to throw fruit at us tonight. During their set he said "No one had the balls back there to throw anything?" So I immediately grabbed some apples and tossed away. I had too for the honor of the tour. Started getting bored after our show so I played along to the Deicide set in the back. Anything to break up the monotony.

Day 11 Milan Rolling Stone:
Got up and had to get out of the bus right away. It was a drop off and the bus was going to park a couple blocks away. Everyone was tired and with a small backstage trying to find room to sleep. Venue was nice, but usually a disco. Walked around with Scott and John and found one of the few places open for lunch on Sunday. Had pizza and it was good. Pizza in the U.S. is just as good thought. Couldn't sell merch today. Something about the club wanting 33% and something about the Mob. Bootleg Deicide merch being sold outside the venue explains it all. Found a McDonalds, had a burger, anything so I don't have to eat deli meat.

Day 12 Worgl Komma:
Another venue in the mountains. Its nice in Austria. It reminds me of a tourist ski spot. Walked around with the Amenta guys today, found another McD's. Good show. Guy was taping it for us and will send it when we get back home. We play early so the place wasn't packed yet, but it was still a good show. A lot of compliments about the show from different people."

Transcending both supergroup clichés and easily identifiable genre tags, Sweden’s most promising new band DEVIAN is poised to bridge the gap between the extremity of modern metal and the melody of days of yore on its debut album, Ninewinged Serpent. Brimming with talent and years of metal know-how, the band boasts former Marduk members Legion (vocals) and Emil (drums), both of whom left the band with the desire to develop a new sound based on their understanding of where extreme metal should go next while incorporating more traditional heavy metal influences. The result is an unstoppable organic extreme metal machine driven by a raving hunger and unquestionable determination.

After an intense year of songwriting, DEVIAN hit Sweden’s Art Decay Studio with producer Rickard Kottelin (The Legion) to record their first opus Ninewinged Serpent. Mixing duties for the album were handled by sound-wizard Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman (Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir) while the final punch in mastering came courtesy of Peter In De Betou / Tailor Maid and Greece’s dark artwork master Seth (Paradise Lost, Soilwork, Old Man’s Child, etc.) suitably packaged the release with a very morbid visual theme, which nicely enhances the album’s thick and bleak lyrical content.

Not wanting to be pigeonholed by the ex-Marduk moniker, Legion and Emil decided to go for a more dynamic old school vibe built on a catchy combination of melody and aggression. Drawing on the intensity of extreme metal innovators like Slayer, Possessed, Morbid Angel and Dissection, DEVIAN infuses this general thread of destructive chaos with strains of the brand of harmony Judas Priest, Motorhead and Iron Maiden made famous in the ‘80s.

Legion had the following to say about Ninewinged Serpent: “It’s a pummeling blackened death thrasher, where we really tried to challenge ourselves and bring fresh elements to the music compared to our efforts in previous projects. Its no-bullshit raving metal straight from the heart charged with uncontrollable anger, haunting melodies and bone crushing heaviness. It’s got a lot of power and soul and we are all extremely proud of what we’ve managed to achieve. Ninewinged Serpent is a truly infernal Scandinavian metal overkill destined to leave sonic scars!”
