Devyce performing at The Maywood in Raleigh NC on Saturday June 29th, 2013.
Devyce was originally formed in late 2001 in an old tin barn on the outskirts of Macclesfield, NC as long-time friends Dustin Askew (Deadstroke) & Glen Stewart (Strangelust) joined forces to create a band of dedicated talented musicians who were ready to take things to the next level. After releasing an independent CD, establishing the name with shows within North Carolina, and member changes, highly regarded technical drummer and friend of the band Robbie Mercer (Ascendancy) joined the lineup along with a new vocalist. Devyce signed with Jagermeister and went on to play over 50 shows within a 9 month period during 2003.
Dustin Askew — guitar, vocals

The band members moved onto other projects sometime after that…
Dustin joined the 80′s cover band Suicide Blonde.
Robbie went on to play in NC metal bands Strychnine Soul & Dark Design.
Glen started working for various internet companies.
Jeff Ivey added as the new front man in 2012.
Devyce regrouped in early 2012, realizing there was the same brotherhood and spirit there as when the band first came together.
