In the dark, desecrated underworld where thrash meets hardcore, lives Deviate. Equally appealing to hardcore kids and metal/thrash consumers, DV8 will appeal to fans of Soulfly, LimpBizkit, Pantera, Sick Of It All, Madball, Earth Crisis, H2O, ... Although relatively unknown in America, DV8 are truly huge in Europe. Having headlined several festivals there, including the Vans Warped Tour, they are poised for US success. Consider their peers with whom they've toured: Fear Factory, Excel, Biohazard, Motorhead, Integrity and others.
Deviate... in the summer of 1991 Deviate was founded from the ashes of Belgian thrash band Sixty Nine and hardcore band Mental Disturbance. Deviate recorded their debut mini-CD called "Small Traces Of Life" in November and December 1992. This CD was released in March 1993, recorded at the Ace Studio's in Aartselaar, Belgium and is produced and engineered by Frank Van Bogaert. After a Dutch Tour with Fear Factory, in May and June, and a very successful European Tour with Excel in September and October 1993, they released their second album in January 1994. This second album, "Crisis Of Confidence", contains 53 minutes of non-stop raging hardcore-crossover music. "Crisis Of Confidence" was recorded in November at the Hautregard Studio's in Herve, Belgium, mixed in December 1993 at the Bullet Sound Studio's in Hilversum, Holland, and was produced by André Gielen. During a year of gigs with amongst others Leeway, Only Living Witness, B-Thong, Biohazard, Motorhead and Dog Eat Dog, Deviate prepared their new album. So I Scream Records was proud to present the second full-length Deviate album "Wreck Style", in May 1995, which broke them into a level of popularity enjoyed by only a couple of European Hardcore bands. Deviate had created a 12-song explosion of sound with songs like "Spread a Threat", "Crack-Down" and "Fearless State". "Wreck Style" was recorded, once again in the Hautregard Studio's in Herve, in March 1995 and is produced by André Gielen and Deviate for I Scream Records.
