Devious was founded in 2000 by Guido de Jongh (guitar) and Frank Schilperoort (drums). With a predilection for thrash metal, the band immediately started building up a live reputation in The Netherlands. With the release of their first full length album “Acts Of Rage”, by Spitzenburg Records in 2003, Devious gained a definitive place within the Dutch metal scene. In the following years, Devious shared stages with bands like Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Vader, Crowbar and The Dillinger Escape Plan. In 2006 the band toured Europe with Brasilian death machine Krisiun.
