EVILE: “FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH” ALBUM PREVIEW AVAILABLE

July 28th, 2011
EVILE "FIVE SERPENT'S TEETH"

EVILE "FIVE SERPENT'S TEETH"

British thrashers EVILE are due to release their highly anticipated new album, FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH, on September 26th.

A 15-minute preview of FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH, featuring one-and-a-half minutes of each song from the album, is available to listen to now below.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“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!”

FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH is EVILE’s third full-length release and was once again recorded with producer RUSS RUSSELL (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, UK.

OL DRAKE of EVILE: „Support the bands you are genuinely into”

July 19th, 2011
Evile 2010

Evile 2010

Metal-Rules interviewers had a chance to talk with Ol Drake of British trash metal band Evile. The band will release their third album on September 26, 2011 through Earache Records. Ol Drake talked about the new album, remembering ex-bassist Mike Alexander and also being a fan of Lady Gaga. Here are few excerpts from the interview:

Your up coming album “Five Serpent’s Teeth”, which will be available for purchase on September 26th, is your third full-length release. What makes this album stand out from the first two?

We’ve changed our approach to how we write the music on this one. I think we wanted to avoid skating around the point in songs and just get straight to it. Do we have a good riff? Yes; so let’s just play it. A few confusing time signatures; Just very direct and in your face. I feel we’ve matured a lot on this album and it is personally my favorite of the three because of it.

 

What’s with the Lady Gaga cover of “Born this Way”? It’s a bit strange, but I have to admit, It sounds way better than the original.

It’s just me fooling around. I’m a fan of her (shock! horror!) and what she does and how she does it; I just wanted to incorporate what I love doing into that. If our fans have a problem with it, so be it, but I was Born this Way and don’t really care if anyone thinks less of me for doing something I want to do. (see what I did there?)

Any last words for the fans?

No, Thank you for being interested! I’d just like to say support the bands you are genuinely into. I don’t mean just Evile. These days it is so difficult to be in a Metal band, so do everything you can to help them; Spread the word, pay for the music you like, go to their shows, buy a shirt if you can (the latter alone helps fill the petrol tank to get to the next show). Other than that, thank you for supporting Evile!

For the entire interview click the following link – http://www.metal-rules.com/zine/content/view/2263/1/

Evile’s previous album “Infected Nations” was released on September 21, 2009 through Earache Records and it was the last album that featured bassist Mike Alexander, who died on tour just weeks after the release.

Evile – Ol Drake

July 12th, 2011

Evile2.jpg

Interview with Ol Drake of Evile

Conducted by: Carlos Llanas

There is no doubt that Thrash Metal has made a defining comeback in recent years.  With younger bands like Warbringer and Toxic Holocaust, the Thrash assault is definitely upon us.  One band that has made a huge impact on the scene is the mighty Evile. Hailing from Huddersfield, England Evile has been hard at work with tours, writing, recording, you name it.  Their dedication and true love for the genre make this band a must see for the fans of modern and old school Thrash.  With their new album on the horizon, there is still much left undone for Evile, so expect to see much more of them in the future. I had the opportunity to chat with Ol Drake, and in this interview Ol sheds light on the new album "Five Serpent’s Teeth", the importance of supporting metal, and the passing of a dear friend and ex-Bassist Mike Alexander.  Here is Ol to tell you all about it.

EVILE REVEAL “FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH” ALBUM TRACK LISTING

June 22nd, 2011
Evile 2010

Evile 2010

British thrashers EVILE recently finished recording their forthcoming new album, FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH, which is due to be released on September 26th.

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE reveals the track listing for the new album:

“Here’s the full track list for our new album, Five Serpent’s Teeth.  There’s such diversity through this album that I simply can’t wait for people to hear these tracks.  We spent a long time in the studio and at home figuring out the best order we could place these tracks in to flow perfectly through the album.  The tracks go from the stomping heaviness of ‘Cult’, to the eeriness/melancholy of ‘In Memoriam’, to the pure insanity of ‘Descent Into Madness’.  You may have already hear ‘Eternal Empire’ at earache.com/fst, and if you were at Download festival last weekend and you came to see us, you heard ‘Cult’.”

The full track listing for FIVE SERPENT’S TEETH is as follows:

01. Five Serpent’s Teeth
02. In Dreams of Terror
03. Cult
04. Eternal Empire
05. Xaraya
06. Origin of Oblivion
07. Centurion
08. In Memoriam
09. Descent Into Madness
10. Long Live New Flesh

Listen to the new track “Eternal Empire” now at http://www.earache.com/fst (e-mail required)

OL DRAKE comments on EVILE’s recent performance at the UK’s Download festival:

“We had a blast at Download festival.  It was our first time there and we were shocked to see how many people squashed into the tent – and it wasn’t even raining!  Kerrang gave us the most prestigious honour of a KKKKK review of the show, another thing we were shocked about.  We’re now preparing for our next few runs of festivals throughout Europe, all of which you can see at http://www.evile.co.uk/gigs.php

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“It is with great pleasure that we can release ‘Eternal Empire’ from our upcoming Five Serpent’s Teeth album for your listening pleasure.  It was very difficult to pick a single track to showcase the vast diversity included on this album, and I think this one is a good medium to show the direction we have gone with on FST.  I can’t wait for you to hear more of the album as, like I said, this album goes through quite a lot of different moods and emotions, in terms of feel and direction, yet is still rooted in the ‘Evile sound’.  The awesome Daniel P. Carter of Radio 1′s Rock Show will be playing the radio debut of the track TONIGHT on BBC Radio 1, so tune in!  We will also be showcasing another brand new track at Download Festival this weekend.  Lots of Serpent’s Teeth coming your way!  See you on that road soon!”

EVILE GUITARIST SHOWS YOU HOW TO PLAY THE BAND’S SONGS

May 19th, 2011
Evile 2010

Evile 2010

OL DRAKE, lead guitarist for British thrashers EVILE, has created a number of instructional guitar videos, showing fans how to play some of the band’s most well-known tracks.

OL DRAKE comments:

“I get a lot of people asking me to tab out Evile songs, but I don’t have the time.  This led me to take a look at the guitar tabs that were up online.  I love that people have taken the time to tab our songs out, but there are mistakes, so I thought why not show people all the little details that are always missed.  I don’t want to do too many, as I think it’s hugely beneficial to spend the time learning things by ear.”

BRIAN POSEHN TO GUEST ON NEW EVILE ALBUM; FINAL STUDIO VIDEO AVAILABLE

April 27th, 2011

British thrashers EVILE have revealed that American comedian BRIAN POSEHN will appear as a guest on the band’s new, as-yet untitled album.

The comedian and self-professed metal nerd teamed up with EVILE to record backing vocals for the new album, which is due to be released later this year on Earache Records.

BRIAN POSEHN comments:

“I’m very excited that my yelling will be featured on the next Evile disc; they’re one of my favorite newish bands and, in my not-so-humble opinion, the British saviors of thrash metal!”

EVILE have now finished recording their new album, and have posted their final studio video.  Watch it now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2SoXBx7wP8

The band posted the second most recent video over the Easter weekend, giving a sneak preview of some new material.  Incase you missed it, watch it now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GLFmaWk7NDk

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“We made it.  Evile’s third album is mixed and completed.  No one got in any fights, no one shouted the word “Fuck” into anyone’s face and it’s sounding great.  From the last video it was quite evident that we’ve done a slow, cleaner and more eerie track.  The song’s initial intention was for Mike/because of the loss of Mike.  We all have our individual thoughts on the track; in my eyes the track is for Mike, and for anyone who has lost anyone close or special to them in their life.  If people don’t like the track or don’t understand its sentiment/meaning, I really couldn’t care less; it was conceived for us and Mike alone.  As Russ said, “It’s a brilliant song for a brilliant guy”.

“A fan (Tom Myton) messaged Russ and Matt via Facebook asking if he could come get ‘Enter the Grave’ signed and just say hi, as he lives just down the road from the studio.  We just happened to have enough time the next day to take a break from mixing and let him in.  We let him listen to a track and hang out for a bit; it was great to have the song listened to by an outside party and for it to be complimented well.  Cheers Tom!  Hope you like the finished product.

“We had a great time recording with Russ this time.  I think because he knew us a lot more, he didn’t hold back on any suggestions this time, which I’m glad of.  This was also our first time recording with Joel.  Because we get on with Joel really well, it was just a breeze.  He had just as much input as anyone else in the band and it was fun tracking a bassist who uses his fingers and a pick depending on which he wants in certain songs (I think we even got some slap bass in there for a laugh).

“I just want to thank all fans of Evile, old and new, for the continuing support and for following our progress on album 3.  With what we’ve been through over the past two years, we’ve literally poured our heart and soul into this material for the past year or two, and worked our arses off for the past five weeks getting the album sounding the best it can for us and for you.  I hope all the journalists who hear the album to review it simply review the album and leave it at that.  The album is obviously going to be put up on the internet after its release, but when it leaks prior to its release date, I can tell you from an artist’s point of view it’s slightly heartbreaking.  Am I not supposed to say that?  Oh well.  I hope you all enjoy our third instalment of Evile as much as we are!

“This one’s for you, Mike.”

CHTHONIC & EVILE, Shrapnel @ Underworld, London

CHTHONIC & EVILE, Shrapnel @ Underworld, London

Friday 18th March 2011

Review: Jo Blackened

On arrival to the Underworld it wasn’t surprising seeing the queue going down the street & right around the corner of the venue. There was a great energy outside tonight and after a slight delay with opening time, you could feel everyone’s anticipation in getting in and hitting the bar!

I wasn’t sure how tonight was going to go, seeing two thrash metal bands supporting a symphonic black metal band, but I am pleased to say it worked for tonight’s gig.

13th February 2011

Review by Alex Agamoth

Sunday gigs are a blessing in disguise really, especially if you are having a hell of a bad weekend and everything concrete is collapsing under your feet! So what’s better than going to hell with a perfect soundtrack?  Here it is a night to remember for quite sometime!

Evile with Elimination & Mutant; pure British Thrash Metal non stop!



A unique fist in the face that makes an old metalhead like me feel as Bay Area Thrash is just happening in front of my very eyes.

EVILE: STUDIO UPDATE PART 5; VIDEO AVAILABLE

April 14th, 2011

British thrashers EVILE are in the midst of recording their as-yet untitled third album, which is due to be released later this year on Earache Records.

EVILE are recording the new album at Parlour Studios in Kettering, England with producer RUSS RUSSELL (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR), who also produced the band’s previous album, 2009′s INFECTED NATIONS.

Evile 2010

Evile 2010

EVILE have been posting a series of videos to give fans a glimpse of what’s going on while the band is in the studio.  Watch the new video, part 5:

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“We’re reaching the point of no return in the recording process.  All drums are down, all bass is down, all rhythm guitars, all harmonies and guitar solos and fifty percent of the vocals are down.  All that’s left to do is the remaining vocal parts and backing vocals, then we enter mixing mode.  Very proud of what we’re accomplishing and can’t wait for this album’s release.  I think this material really shows us coming into our own; we’re much more confident in what we’re doing now and ready to show the world how we have grown and developed musically on the new album…  This is the next level.”

EVILE TO BEGIN RECORDING NEW ALBUM THIS WEEKEND

March 18th, 2011
Evile 2010

Evile 2010

British thrashers EVILE are set to enter the studio this weekend to begin recording their third album.

EVILE will be playing a show in London this Friday, 18th March with CHTHONIC, before heading to Prestatyn, Wales on Saturday for a performance at Hammerfest.  The band will then be heading into Parlour Studios on Sunday to begin recording the follow-up to 2009′s INFECTED NATIONS, and will once again be working with producer RUSS RUSSELL (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR).

EVILE lead guitarist OL DRAKE comments:

“This has been one hell of a 2011 already.  We’ve been working non-stop on the material for Evile’s third album since early last year, and the past few months saw the workload pile up drastically.  We’re on top of it though.

“Tomorrow we play London with our friends Chthonic from Taiwan, then we head over to Prestatyn for Hammerfest.  Just like with Infected Nations, we’re again heading to the studio shortly after playing Hammerfest, though this time it’s the very day after.  To the great Parlour Studios we will venture along with the even greater Russ Russell.  He was at the helm/desk/brain for ‘Infected Nations’, and we see him as a member of the band, even more so on this third offering.  We’ll be in there for approximately a month, and we’ll be focusing on roughly ten tracks to delight your ears.

“If I was to say what the direction of this third album would be, I’d have to say a mix of the approach to ‘Enter the Grave’, the ideas on ‘Infected Nations’ and an amalgamation of brand new ideas we can’t wait to try out.  We have to try out new things as artists; we don’t ever ever want to stick to doing the same thing all the time.  It will be aggressive yet mature, in my opinion, and before your ask – yes, fast.”

March 18 – London, UK – The Underworld

June 10-12 – Donington, UK – Download Festival

EVILE CONFIRMED FOR UK’S HIGH VOLTAGE FESTIVAL

March 8th, 2011

British thrashers EVILE have been confirmed to play at this year’s High Voltage festival, which takes place on July 23rd and 24th at Victoria Park in London, UK.

EVILE were among the latest bands to be recently announced for the UK’s Download festival, as well as Masters of Rock in the Czech Republic.  The band are now due to perform alongside even more rock legends at High Voltage, including JUDAS PRIEST, QUEENSRYCHE, JETHRO TULL and more.

EVILE bassist JOEL GRAHAM comments:

“It’s awesome to be added to the High Voltage festival – for the name Evile to be on the same poster that contains the such legendary names of Judas Priest, Jethro Tull, Dream Theater and Queensryche is an absolute mind f**k…  It’s amazing.  More than a couple of us in Evile are prog fans so I’m sure we’ll be hanging around the Prog Stage a lot.  For me personally, I became a huge Jethro Tull fan after doing a deal with my father; he agreed to take me to see Anthrax when I was about 11, if in return he could take me to see Tull around the same time, so he got me hooked.  Ol (Drake) also has a very uncanny likeness to a young Ian Anderson, so I’m hoping they bump into each other over the weekend.”

EVILE have also been added to the bill for Masters of Rock in the Czech Republic, where the band will be performing on July 17th.  For more information, go to http://www.mastersofrock.cz

EVILE have also confirmed a UK show with Taiwanese metallers CHTHONIC, which takes place next Friday, March 18th at the Underworld in London.

EVILE CONFIRMED FOR UK’S DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL

March 2nd, 2011

British thrashers EVILE are among the latest artists to be confirmed for this year’s edition of the legendary Download festival, which takes place 10 – 12 June at Donington Park in the UK.

Following a hugely successful year in 2010, when EVILE won a coveted Metal Hammer Golden God award and spent months on the road in North America with the likes of OVERKILL, FORBIDDEN and KREATOR, the band are now heading to the UK’s home of rock for what will undoubtedly be an unforgettable performance.  EVILE will be performing alongside the likes of such rock giants as DEF LEPPARD and SYSTEM OF A DOWN.

EVILE drummer BEN CARTER comments:

“Evile are both honoured and excited to be making our first appearance at Download this year!  Donington has been the spiritual home of rock and metal for so many years, now finally we can make our mark there and become part of that legacy.  I’ve attended Download in the past, and seen many bands perform on the smaller stages and go on to huge success, and I think that’s what Download can do for a band.  There’s something about the place that’s special, so we’re all so eager to get on stage and have our Download moment!  BRING IT ON!!!!!”

EVILE GUITARIST FEATURED ON NEW DESTRUCTION ALBUM

February 24th, 2011
Destruction - Day Of Reckoning

Destruction - Day Of Reckoning

OL DRAKE, lead guitarist for British thrashers EVILE, is featured as a guest musician on the new album from German thrash legends DESTRUCTION.

OL DRAKE had previously filled in for DESTRUCTION guitarist MIKE SIFRINGER in 2009 at Portugal’s Caos Emergente festival, after SIFRINGER broke a finger on his left hand.  DRAKE was asked to join the German thrashers in the studio to play some solos and harmonies on the new DESTRUCTION release, titled DAY OF RECKONING.

OL DRAKE comments:

“Just got a package through the mail from sir Schmier, which contained the newest Destruction album, “Day of Reckoning”.  I had the huge honour of doing a few guest solos and harmonies on the album, as well as on their awesome cover of Dio’s “Stand Up and Shout” (which is one of my favourite Dio tracks!).  To fly over there, do some recording, backing vocals and hang out with Mike and Schmier again was an experience I’ll never forget.

“Being a big Destruction fan, I can’t put into words how unbelievable it is, and was, to be a part of the album.  Also, with being a Destruction fan, I can safely say this is one of the best albums they’ve done in a long time (no, not because I’m on it… Well, a little haha).  Our old bassist, Mike, was a huge Destruction fan, so I really hope he’d be proud.  I remember when I told him I’d be standing in on guitar for Destruction’s Mike at a show in Portugal; he simply called me a “bastard”.  I think he was more excited than I was haha.  Long live Destruction!”
