Origin: Sioux City, Iowa, USA
Genre: Horror metal
Years Active: 2009-Present
Formed in 2009, Devour Once Dead is a metal band that truly stands out from the crowd. With live shows that are visually aggressive and horrifying, Devour has created their own genre of metal called "horror metal". With lyrics that could only come from the mind of a demented serial killer (or at least a fan of slasher movies!) and riffs that combine fast thrash with punchy death metal grooves, Devour does what they do with no apologies and their fans love them for it. Loud, nasty, dirty, horror metal!
Voted best metal/rock band of 2017 by Sioux City Journal's Siouxland Choice awards.
Competed through four rounds in The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's Battle of the Bands 2017 and earned a 2nd place finish.
Has played alongside regional, national and international bands such as Mushroomhead, Goatwhore, Hemlock, Dead Horse Trauma, Blue Felix and Ektomorf.
Management: Vince Conway and Jason Verbeski
