of the Bay Area style from the time when thrash was still thrash. This cd has it all.Speeeeed, Thrash, Heaviness, all of it! Every track is solid, with the exception of the last track which is so blistering it sounds like a tornado on the back of a freight train. By far the best thrash album of the year. A friend of mine listened to it and said it was too generic, so i told him to go listen to dream theater if he wants complicated stupidity in his metal. What a Jackass he is, but anyway, if you still bang your head to thrashers like Defiance, Annihilator, Xentrix, then do not hesitate to get this one and Enter the Grave…..
Metal Album Reviews[RSS]
To be honest, i hate this album at first, its sounds like generic thrash band from 80’s with typical thick modern sounding but after listening to the first few songs for few times i can say its an awesome thrash album.. it sounds really powerfull and for 80’s traditional thrash music fans you can’t go wrong with this album… it will reminds you of band like exodus or even possessed. I can guarentee there’s no metalcore element on this album and for those who’s looking for a straight fast & thrashy music you can give this album some listen and judge yourself.
Earache Records laid waste to thrash in the early 90’s by unleashing death metal. In a strange twist of fate, they’re contributing to the vibrant rebirth of thrash with Evile. Had this been released 16 years earlier, I would swear it’s Sodom’s follow-up to “Agent Orange” under a new band name. This fits to a T right between “Agent…” and Sodom’s next album, “Better Off Dead,” in every aspect–from the clean Harris Johns-like production, to the lyrical content, to the vocals, to the rapid-fire jigga-jigga-jigga guitar rhythms.
Thrash purists will love Evile’s debut. There is absolutely nothing new school about this. No hardcore breakdowns; no inhuman, synthesized guitar solos; no whiney poppy emo refrains. Just pure, mature thrash à la 1990.
Earache likens Britian’s Evile to a handful of 80’s thrash bands, but the songs are extremely consistant and well executed in the Sodom vein. You might recognize an early Metallica riff here and there, but then, the same can be said of Sodom on “Better Off Dead.”
Want a listen? Check out their MySpace page for a full 4 tracks off the album. Good stuff.
This new band with influences of the best thrash from 80s goes down with the best of them. These guys know there thrash, with some heavy and catchy riffs and plenty of solos, and ranging from mid to fast pace, its got everything that good old thrash needs. Fans of classic thrash metal like Slayer, devastation, exodus, Demolition Hammer, onslaught, exhumer Bloodfeast, At war, and even some early annihilator. Simply put if you like Thrash Metal then you will love this.
Evile has come up with their first album and it’s a winner! I’ve been watching the band for a while now and own a couple of their demos but this is their first album and if you’re into thrash metal you’ll love it. Think back to the early 80’s and how bands like Slayer, Testament, and Anthrax used to sound when they were first coming out. These guys have a sound of their own but it’s in that style. This is the first new thrash album I’ve bought in over a decade because it’s the best new one by any thrasher in over a decade. Get used to these guys cause’ they are the new name in thrash. What Testament was in America in the 80’s these guys are in the new millennium in Europe. But don’t just take it from me listen to the samples on this page and hear for yourself, if you don’t love it then your probably not into old school thrash.
