Who is Deveria?
DEVERIA is an American melodic power/thrash metal band based in Upstate New York, Rotterdam. DEVERIA was officially formed in 2008, by frontman Charles Woodard.
Their music is heavily influenced by legendary bands such as QUEENSRYCHE, METALLICA, IRON MAIDEN, BLACK SABBATH, RONNIE JAMES DIO, METAL CHURCH, FATE WARNING, and CRIMSON GLORY.
In 2010 they released a six song self titled ep. and regularly performed their original material in Upstate clubs. After 2 years, DEVERIA disbanded due to personal reasons among the members.

DEVERIA, after shifting members, finally established the lineup that would solidify their presence on the music scene:
Frontman: Charles Woodard
Drummer: John Suski

DEVERIA is now back with a vengeance, new songs and a skyrocketing trajectory for success. They exploded back into the music scene opening for national acts such as: FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, DAVID ELLEFSON, BUMBLE FOOT, DEAD BY WEDNESDAY, BATTLE BEAST, VICIOUS RUMORS, MICHAEL ANGELO BATIO, SONATA ARCTICA, BLACK SABBITCH, THE IRON MAIDENS, MICHAEL CAMPESE, AND VOODOO TERROR TRIBE… just to name a few.
