2 Devourment Devourment Devourment is an American brutal/slam death metal band from Dallas, Texas. Formed in 1995, the band has split up and reformed three times and Brad Fincher is the only original member.

Devourment should be number 1, they practically created slam death.

They set the rules for slam death metal, they are slam godfathers. They're like Slayer for thrash metal and Bathory for black metal.

Indeed devourment should be first

This band should be #1 in the ranks without batting an eye.
