YMMV / Devourment

Go To

  • Contested Sequel: Both Unleash and Conceived got this reaction. The former for being perceived as Lighter and Softer for some while being Darker and Edgier for others. In the case of the latter, it was mostly due to changing to a more standard BDM album toning down on the slam sound. Was this a case of Growing the Beard or Genre Adultery?
  • Face of the Band: Majewski was this when he was in the band. As of now, it's probably Rosas.

  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Although brutal death metal bands such as Suffocation and Internal Bleeding had already made use of slam riffs, Devourment was perhaps the first band notable for using them extensively, making the band at least the Trope Codifier if not Trope Maker for slam death metal. However, with later bands following in their footsteps mostly writing songs that consist of almost nothing but slams (Cephalotripsy, Cerebral Incubation, Epicardiectomy and Gorevent being examples of this), even Devourment's early, most slam-centric releases almost sound downright traditional in comparison.
  • Signature Song: "Babykiller"
  • Win Back the Crowd: While the Majewski era split the fanbase right down the middle, basically everyone who wasn't on board with that era (or even just Unleash the Carnivore and Conceived in Sewage, since a decent amount of Rosas fans at least enjoy Butcher the Weak) was won back when "Cognitive Sedation Butchery" was leaked early and demonstrated a return to the old-school TXDM style of Molesting the Decapitated. When it was released, Obscene Majesty was almost universally lauded by the fanbase, and most fans will agree that it is their best since Molesting the Decapitated, if not their best period.
