Mumbai based death/thrash metal outfit Devoid is scheduled to launch their sophomore release this February. The band has gone all out DIY with "The Invasion(E.P)", right from producing the EP to sales. The release is a concept EP which chronicles the story line of an alien invasion on to earth, with each song as an episode.

The Grand Design
Arun Iyer, vocalist and rhythm guitarist elucidates, "After the first album's disparity in the flow of thought, I wanted to experiment with writing a continual story. And the story of the human civilization is always one that is interesting; especially since it is destined to be doomed one way or the other. The sound on the EP is of 4 guys who love playing metal and wanted to push our limits creatively and technically to a newer level. Producing this was a ride I won't soon forget."
"The Invasion(E.P)" will be a two-fold release, which also includes a 3 part 'making of' YouTube feature documenting the EP producing process. In addition to the EP release, the band's first music video is also in the pipeline and is expected to be out in the month of February itself.
Formed in a decade when heavy metal was still in it's infant stages in India, Devoid has grown to become veteran death/thrash metallers representing a genre which was long under represented in the country. The band's lyrics can be best categorized as anti-establishment/anti-conformist. In 2010, Devoid released their debut "A God’s Lie" through Demonstealer Records. The band went on to win the Rolling Stone Metal Award for Best Metal Album (popular choice) for the release.
