DEVASTATION (1986-1990 2007-)


I have to start this blog with something mine, this is, as you may know, my band from 1986. We were one of the first Speed-Thrash Metal bands in the ex-Yugoslavia, and this is the stuff we recorded in those 3-4 years and with different line-ups. Very soon, these two demos will be released on one CD by the chinese Area Death Productions label, and I am so proud about it.
The band started to play again, I am the only member of all the line-ups that is in the saddle again, but the music we will make will remain 101% old school Speed Thrash Metal.
Update 2012: The band played 8 shows during 2010-11 and split-up due to incompatibility of the members. At the beginning of 2010, the chinese label Area Death Productions released the retrospective on a cd "Devastation Complete 1987-1989". The plan now is to compose and record a new album, and by far two ex members are into the project, me and my brother Chriss on drums.


demo "THE UPCOMING MAYHEM" 1987


demo "THE POSSIBILITY OF LIFE`S DESTRUCTION" 1989

CD "DEVASTATION COMPLETE 1987-1989" 2010


bootleg "LIVE VIVA LA POLA FESTIVAL, 14.08.2010."

I was guest vocalist on the last POST MORTEM (U.S.) album "Messages From The Dead" dedicated to my friend John McCarthy, who died just before the recording of the vocals for this album. Some songs of the album were recorded by some John`s friends, and I was blessed to be invited to record the vocals for "A Happy Life". Thanx to John Alexander.
