The Day of the Devourer is Australian doom metal band Winter's Soil's sixth studio album, released on the 11th of June 2005. It follows 2004's Sinfonía de Sangre and is followed by 2006's Amor, Muerte, Lujuria.


While playing at Mourning Sands Festival in Egypt, Kaleb Jovanovich became extremely engrossed and fascinated by the ancient Egyptian culture and had become inspired to write several songs. Many songs on the album are Egyptian themed as apposed to the band's usual mourning content, but continue to contain a feel of sorrow and the macabre.
