Ol Drake leaves Evile

August 30th, 2013

Evile guitarist Ol Drake has just announced his departure from Evile- here is his official statement

“It’s been half my life (15 years) since I started jamming in a room with three other guys, in a group in which I didn’t know would grow to be EVILE, go through what EVILE has gone through and achieve what EVILE has so far achieved.”Since 1999, I’ve put 100% of my time and life into the band we formed, while us all had/have to sacrifice a lot financially and personally along the way.

“I’ve had some of the best times of my life in the past 15 years and met some amazing and fascinating people. I’ve had the huge honour to play a part in so many things I’d never have dreamed of: paying tribute to Dimebag [PANTERA] by covering ‘Cemetery Gates’ in Metal Hammer; supporting MEGADETH, EXODUS and many bands I grew up listening to; playing and recording with DESTRUCTION; touring/seeing places in the world I’d never have got to see otherwise and many more.

“Over the past year, I’ve, unfortunately, found myself becoming more and more detached from the touring/band lifestyle.

“In my opinion, the music business for a band of our genre and ‘level’ determines a very unrealistic way of life to me, and I personally find it difficult to make a living and have a ‘normal’ life.

“This is not a plea for sympathy, I’m simply being honest.

“I’ve reached a point where I want a family/kids, a house, a steady and definite income and everything in between, and in regard to my personal preferences, a touring band’s income and uncertainties, in the state that I feel they would continue to be in, has become incompatible with how I feel and what I want/need.

“There is no animosity between the rest of the band and I. This is purely a personal and financial decision I’ve been mulling over for a while and I wish them all the best for the future.

“I am not unappreciative of the position EVILE has in the music world; I know a lot of people would love to be where EVILE are.

“I want to thank each and every person who supports the band, and I want to extend a special thanks to Digby and the Earache Records crew.

“Huge apologies to anyone this disappoints, but I have to do what makes sense to me.

“I am not quitting writing or playing; I do plan on continuing to record and write my own music (solo project, general composing/recording etc), I just won’t be touring etc.

“I’ll still be playing the two upcoming festival shows EVILE have.

“You can keep up to date with what I’ll be doing on my Twitter or on Facebook.

“A big thank you to everyone!

28th March 2013

Review & Photography by Ashlinn Nash

Kreator

Kreator

Kreator are known within the thrash metal community as something of legends, with their fast electric musical panache and flair for ferocious lyrics. They have become a corner stone of influence across the European scene as well as further afield. Tonight the German masters are accompanied by speedballs SSS, re-formed veterans, Xentrix and the up and rising metal troupe Evile.

March 20th, 2013

Britain’s EVILE will be celebrating this year’s Record Store Day by releasing a split 7″ picture disc vinyl with Swedish death metal legends ENTOMBED.

The limited edition release will feature ENTOMBED’s classic 1990 track, “Drowned”, along with EVILE’s incredible 2012 cover version, available on vinyl for the first time.  The 7″ will be available in independent record stores on Saturday, April 20th in strictly limited quantities.

Local favourites EVILE will also be performing a special show for fans at Crash Records in Leeds, UK on April 20th at 4pm.  Space is limited, but fans who buy the 7″ vinyl from Crash Records on the day will get free entry to the show (space permitting).

EVILE drummer BEN CARTER comments:

“Evile are looking forward to making some stupidly heavy noise at Crash Records in Leeds on Saturday, 20th April in support of Record Store Day!  We’re going to start destroying ears at 4pm, so make sure to get in early as space will be VERY limited!  We guarantee this show will be utter carnage and something very different than the norm.  We can’t wait to see how a circle pit will work in a record store and need our fans there to show us!!!  To mark the occasion, we’ll be selling our new exclusive 7″ split of our cover of Entombed’s ‘Drowned’, with Entombed’s original on the flipside.  All this is to show support to indie retailers, so get yer asses down to Crash and show your support for the old school!!!” Read the rest of this entry »

Review by Lianne Alice

The day couldn’t have been any more miserable, freezing cold and raining, not to mention that it’s a Sunday night and transport was non-existent! But that was not going to dampen my mood, as I was on my way to a gig I had been waiting for, for a long time! I finally get to see Evile live!

EVILE: ‘IN MEMORIAM’ VIDEO PREMIERES ON VEVO

June 6th, 2012

EVILE have released a new music video for their track, “In Memoriam”, which is taken from the band’s latest album, FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH.

The video, which was produced and directed by Sitcom Soldiers, is premiering now on VEVO, making them the first metal band to feature on the music video site’s front page.

For viewers in countries where VEVO is not available, the video is also available on YouTube at http://youtu.be/8JHum58R624

“In Memoriam” is also available now as a digital single on iTunes, including an acoustic version of the track, a radio edit, and the official music video.  Get the single now at http://bit.ly/JL2szS

EVILE drummer BEN CARTER comments:

“We are really excited for our fans, both new and old, to see our video for In Memoriam.  It’s a different sound and approach for us definitely, but we hope our fans appreciate the sentiment and reason this song exists.  There’s a lot of context in the song that everyone will at one time or another relate to, and we hope we have captured that essence in the video.  We didn’t want to rush this video and get it wrong at all; we didn’t want there to be any falseness, so what we have created is something which we are all very proud of, which perfectly captures everything we felt after losing Mike, and moving forward with Joel.  We hope this becomes a mainstay of our live set in the future, and we also hope that everyone who watches takes something positive from the video.  Live life, and enjoy!”

EVILE CONFIRM WOLF AS SPECIAL GUESTS FOR UK TOUR; ADD TWO IRISH DATES

June 1st, 2012
WOLF & EVILE TOUR

WOLF & EVILE TOUR

EVILE have confirmed that Swedish heavy metallers WOLF will be joining the band as special guests for their recently-confirmed UK tour, which kicks off on October 18th in Glasgow.

EVILE will also be returning to Ireland and Northern Ireland on the trek, following two shows there with MACHINE HEAD earlier this week.  Two shows have been added to the tour – Belfast on October 20th, and Dublin on October 21st.

EVILE guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“We’re very pleased to announce the first band on our tour of the UK & IRE in October 2012 is the awesome WOLF.  Evile and Wolf’s paths have crossed many times and it’s going to be great to follow the same path for these shows.  They’re such a great band and they’re going to add so much energy and enjoyment to the gigs.  They were kind enough to donate Wolf gear to the Mike Alexander raffle which we ran back in 2009 too.  I can’t wait to get back out on the road for our UK & IRE fans and bring along the heavy metal thunder in the name of WOLF!

“We’ve just added a date in Belfast and a date in Dublin, so check the flyer and get your tickets early!  I don’t want to hear about more kids in Evile shirts being turned away at the door from having no tickets! *Metal sad face*”
