Finnish female fronted metal group, Evil Drive, have released a video for the new single of their, still untitled upcoming, second album to be released via Mighty Music worldwide on early 2017. The new video can be found below. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Äänilaitos studio in Kotka with Juuso Elminen (Domination Black) “Anti-Genocide” presents Evil Drive’s melodic metal reinforced by Viktoria Viren’s over-the-top growling with one of the tightest guitar sections in the scene. The video was shoot and filmed by the bands long time trusted man Tino-Viljami Vanhala . Viktoria Viren comments “Anti-Genocide has a totally different theme and feeling compared to our debut album THE LAND OF THE DEAD, which was all about the current world politics and war. The new track is about the history of the American Indians and about the fate they had to face when the white men came and took over their land”.
“Anti-Genocide” also presents the bands updated line-up which now features guitarist Juha-Pekka “J-P” Pusa who recently replaced the band’s original guitarist Niko Huusari. Ville Wiren comments “The new line-up makes the band sound better than ever. J-P definitely brings us a lot of new energy and ideas and helps the band to find a completely new level. We’ve finally found ourselves, our musical style and finally have access to all the musical tools we’ve ever wanted: strong growling vocals, two great guitarists, and a great rhythm section. We trust that our upcoming album will be a turning point for Evil Drive, and we are excited to be with Mighty Music for this new chapter”.
Evil Drive is a melodic metal band, founded 2013 in Kotka, Finland. The band was originally formed because the aim was to set up a band which has not previously been heard. All the musicians in the band, have a history in a number of different bands and different genres. The band has incorporated many different musical styles, leading press and fans to label them as melodic death metal with a twist of 80’s style thrash metal. But in fact Evil Drive’s sound is therefore the combination of all of its member’s musical history.
