The Evil Cell
The Evil Cell
September 2001
Released: 2001, Independent
Rating: 2.5/5
Reviewer: Waspman

I’m not sure where to begin on this one. The Evil Cell is a brand spankin’ new band out of New Jersey claiming to play “a melting pot of hard rock, metal, industrial metal, and speed metal” and even though I don’t hear much industrial in the band’s grooves, that’s as good as a description as one I could muster. Needless to say, this is one strange band. The band has already had a little bit of recognition as founder Eric Sperr was a finalist in the metal category in a Guitar Player Magazine competition. Sure enough, the guitar on this little demo (a taster for an upcoming full-length) is rightly scorching with some bitchin’ soloing to boot.

There is a bizarreness to this disc that is unavoidable. Opening with “Just out of Reach”, the band rages and thrashes about in a loose but still coherent way, before completely loosing it and going all unintelligible (and unenjoyable).
