DevilSpeak - Unearth Hell (Single - 2017) - Bandcamp Stream

DevilSpeak is a 5 piece Death/Thrash Metal band based in Cape Town, South Africa. DevilSpeak members are Azaliyah Bester on Ryhthm Guitar, De Wet Loots on Lead Guitar, Jarred Williams on Vocals, Francois Meyer on Drums and Derrick Leppan on Bass Guitar.

DevilSpeak was formed in August 2014 when Francois auditioned on drums at a practice session with the other four members and everyone immediately recognised that the musical chemistry between everyone was very real and special. The next day the name of DevilSpeak was chosen and so the band began.

The name DevilSpeak is a play on words of the Devil's Peak mountain in Cape Town. It's a way to say that they are from Cape Town and they are a metal band.

DevilSpeak had their live debut on 20 Mar 2015, having spent 7 months honing the 6 song set into a formidable shape with the aim of blasting onto the scene with a musical presence that could not be denied by those watching their live show. This aim was realised and very quickly the band was playing some good shows on the Cape Town scene.

DevilSpeak recorded their debut single, Violently Leading The Blind, on 18 and 19 April 2015 at Milestone Studios with Jethro Harris engineering. All instruments were miced up for the recording as the aim here was to capture the live feeling of the band, as well as their actual sound, and this aim was very much realised. Everyone involved in the recording of the single is very proud of how the end result sounds having achieved what they set out to achieve in their respective goals.

Violently Leading The Blind was released on 1 September 2015 and very soon started getting radio play worldwide, initially in the UK and soon spreading to the USA, Panama, France, and other parts of the world.

Notable shows that DevilSpeak have played include being invited to play at Metal4Africa's Winterfest'15 in August 2015, opening for NervoChaos from Brazil on their South African tour they did with Boargazm in February 2016, and supporting Vulvodynia on their tour of Cape Town in April 2016.

DevilSpeak is now recording a 3 track EP in 2016, preproduction has commenced on this in March 2016. The EP will again be recorded at Milestone Studios with Jethro Harris engineering.

Notable shows coming up for 2016 include taking part in the South African Battle for Wacken in April 2016, where the winning band will get to go play at Wacken Open Air in Germany in August 2016, and supporting Sacrifist from JHB on their Cape Town tour in May 2016.

On August 7, 2016 the band released the video "Beyond The See" that was was the 4th song in the set from a live performance recordered at M4A Winterfest'15 at 6pm sharp on Sat 8 Aug 2015 at The Assembly in Cape Town and had an exhilarating experience.

On  12 September 2017 the band released "Unearth Hell", the single off their forthcoming EP "See Evil Hear Evil Speak Evil".
