EVILE GUITARIST NOMINATED FOR “DIMEBAG DARRELL SHREDDER” GOLDEN GOD AWARD

March 8th, 2012

OL DRAKE, lead guitarist for British thrashers EVILE, has been nominated for a Metal Hammer Golden God award in the “Dimebag Darrell Shredder” category.

According to Metal Hammer, the Dimebag Darrell Shredder award is given to those talented players who have been recognised as melting our faces off with their incredible technical prowess and ruthless talent.  OL DRAKE is nominated alongside ADAM DUTKIEWICZ (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE), DEVIN TOWNSEND (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT), DINO CAZARES (FEAR FACTORY) and SATCHEL (STEEL PANTHER).

This isn’t the first time that OL DRAKE has been recognised for his contributions to metal, as EVILE won the prestigious “Metal As Fuck” award at the 2010 Metal Hammer Golden God awards.

OL DRAKE comments:

“I just woke up to find out I’ve been nominated for a Metal Hammer Golden God award named after one of my biggest guitar influences.  I’m flabbergasted.  I just used the word flabbergasted, that’s how honoured I am by this.  I spent many years listening to and learning Dime’s mastery of the axe and still do to this day.  We covered Pantera’s ‘Cemetery Gates’ for Metal Hammer back in 2009 which was also a huge honour.  To conclude, if you can’t tell, I feel incredibly honoured.  A vote for me in this would be amazing.  Please get voting!”

Vote for OL DRAKE in the Dimebag Darrell Shredder award now at http://goldengods.metalhammer.co.uk/awards/dimebag-darrell-shredder

British thrashers EVILE, death metallers CEREBRAL BORE and heavy metal maestros SAVAGE MESSIAH are gearing up for a night of metal mayhem as part of HMV’s Next Big Thing tour.

HMV’s Next Big Thing showcases and celebrates the very best in new and emerging talent, with EVILE, CEREBRAL BORE and SAVAGE MESSIAH teaming up for a one-off show on Saturday, 11th February at the HMV Ritz in Manchester.

The show is open to ages 14+ and tickets for this unmissable event cost just £10, with no booking fee charged.

Order your tickets now while supplies last at http://www.hmvtickets.com/events/4945

The event will also be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the bands’ record label, Earache Records, and an after-show party will be held at Satan’s Hollow, featuring a guest DJ set by EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE.

The bands have issued the following statements:

OL DRAKE – EVILE
“I’m sat in a bus in Germany about to go on stage, but a little part of me can’t wait to get back to the UK fans and play the HMV Ritz in February with Cerebral Bore and Savage Messiah.  We’re all really looking forward to the show, and we can promise a very special set on the night.  We HAVE to make it special as a part of celebrating Earache Records’ 25th Anniversary, of which it is an honour to be included in!  Long live metal!  See you in Manchester!”

DAVID SILVER – SAVAGE MESSIAH
“We’re really psyched up for this show!  Manchester is a great metal city and we can’t wait to slam into some new tunes from Plague of Conscience for our metal brethren!!  HMV is a British institution too, so we’re proud to have been invited to join in and help fly the flag for heavy music.  We’re going to dedicate this performance to our fallen metal comrade David Gold of Woods of Ypres, who was supposed to be sharing the stage with us at this event; fate had other ideas, so we’re gonna raise the roof!”

SIMONE “SOM” PLUIJMERS – CEREBRAL BORE
“HMV Next Big Thing is gonna be a rare thing to play.  We are absolutely honoured to support our label in this and that they’ve picked us out from all the Earache bands to play this festival with some of our label colleagues.  Of course our thoughts go out to Woods of Ypres who have lost their great frontman at an unexpected time.  They were also going to play this festival.  We will rock our hearts out for them, this gig should be a literal blast!”

Jalometalli 2011 – Oulu Finland

September 20th, 2011

2010_06_23_4c21cb96980d1.jpg

fifth.jpg

Here we are again… The mighty Jalometalli Open Air Metal festival strikes back once again with a killer line-up to maintain its metallic lofty status on the Finnish festival map. The festival is known for relying on an old school metal approach offering traditional metal to extreme metal. The festival offered a great deal of bands from the classic metal to the extreme black metal. The festival had also paid attention to young rising and local bands which had been placed to play at the small third sage. That was unique and thankfully most of the bands sounded killer. The Metal Rules team hit the ground of Oulu to testify several absolutely killer bands. The whole Jalometalli as a festival is so unique and one of kind that anyone reading this article should take a glance at the offering of the festival. Here is a brief article on the fest.

EVILE DEDICATE NEW TRACK “CENTURION” TO BLOODSTOCK FESTIVAL

August 5th, 2011
EVILE "FIVE SERPENT'S TEETH"

EVILE "FIVE SERPENT'S TEETH"

British thrashers EVILE are preparing for the release of their new album, FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH, and have dedicated one of the new songs to the UK’s Bloodstock festival.

Fans attending the festival next weekend will be among the first people to hear the brand new track, titled “Centurion”, as it will be played through the PA system between bands on the main stage throughout the festival.

EVILE frontman MATT DRAKE spoke to Bloodstock to explain the meaning behind the new track and why it was dedicated to the UK’s favourite all-metal festival.

Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb2EID-StuI

MATT DRAKE comments:

“Bloodstock festival has always been good to our little band Evile and we can’t thank them enough for the chance they gave us way back in 2006 to headline the unsigned stage, which ultimately put us on course to being able to have a go at some of the things we’ve done.  So when we had recorded the song called ‘Centurion’, it made us think about Bloodstock – there’s just something about that track that made us feel ‘Bloodstocky’.  It might be the epicness, or the subject matter, or just the sheer ‘taking it seriously while not taking it seriously’ shamelessness of the song.  Maybe all those things!  But it made us think about Bloodstock all the same, so we would like to dedicate the song to Bloodstock festival as a thank you for being so good with our rock quartet over the years!  Bloodstock is an amazing place; long may it continue!”

Bloodstock’s VICKY GREGORY has issued the following statement:

“Nothing gives us more excitement and pleasure to see the success of EVILE; the band stormed through our unsigned competition at Bloodstock and have never looked back!  We expect great things from them and, having heard tracks from the new album, they won’t disappoint!”

FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH is due to be released on September 26th in Europe and on October 18th in North America.

Listen to a 15-minute preview of FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH, featuring one-and-a-half minutes of each song from the album:

OL DRAKE recently spoke about the album preview:

“I was delighted to hear iTunes upped their track preview length to 1:30, but everyone doesn’t have iTunes.  A fan of ours, Austin H, put all the previews into one video on YouTube.  I support people ‘trying before buying’ so I’d love to let people know these previews exist to give you an idea of the album instead of downloading the album in time to come – after all, when people download an album, they more often than not say it’s to ‘try the album out’, so I see this as quite a fair compromise to condone the previews being heard by everyone.  I’m not wholly against downloading, I’m more against the disrespect shown to artists by downloading an artist’s work, liking it and not rightly paying for it.  Bands these days, not just Evile, need their fans’ support.  Support music!”
