Devourment Premiere NSFW Video For “A Virulent Strain Of Retaliation”

Devourment have premiered a NSFW video for their new song “A Virulent Strain Of Retaliation.” This track is from the band’s new album “Obscene Majesty,” which will be released on August 16. The group commented:

“This is a vision inside a mind utterly consumed with bloody revenge. Where the only possible outcome is annihilation of the enemy and the terrible cost that demands.

‘I will have such revenges…I will do such things…what they are, yet I know not: but they shall be the terrors of the earth.’ – King Lear (Shakespeare)”
