They're a Thrash Metal band from Huddersfield, UK.

I listened to them tonight after watching a Rockworld.tv program - battle of the bands style and I thought they were awesome.

Your thoughts on them?

there's already a thread, but it is a ways back. awsome band, one of the better new thrash bands in my opinion.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

This band played a free show at a pub near me, all I can say is booooring. There are so many better modern thrash bands, I have no idea why everyone goes ape over this one.

I tried all their myspaces, and didn't like any of their vocalists (except there were so many "cauldron"s that I didn't listen to them). It's all preference I guess, but I'd take Evile over any of those, although I obviously haven't seen any of the bands (including Evile) live, so I can't comment there.

The only problem I have with Evile happens top be their vocalist, actually.

He has a nice yell going on, but it's just real monotone; and all his lyrics take the same pattern and structure.

Still...

YES they're awesome. Some people say they sound too much like Slayer but I don't really care, they kick so much ass


Can't wait to see them on Gigantour UK
I'm new around these parts so don't be mean or I'll... so help me I'll... throw raisons at you. Yeah.

I am a HUGE Evile fan, they're possibly the best brand new thrash outfit around - and they're British. I discovered them last year, and "enter the Grave" is one of the best albums I own.

Vermintide, I actually love the vocals, the shout is the epitome of thrash, I agree with the monotonous value of it - I think it'll improve with age.

I'm definitely seeing them on Gigantour with 'Deth and JFAC.

I dunno, for some reason I don't find this band interesting at all
I’m not the man I used to be, I... I can’t go back to Arkham.

I... I should return to Arkham.

Possibly because they are the definition of generic?

Such an argument could be applied to a band like Municipal Waste, for example, but when a band takes their re-hashing of Kill 'em All and Bonded by Blood as seriously as this band does, it just becomes tedious, in my opinion.
Plus I've seen them live, no energy whatsoever.

I think this band just reminds me of a less-powerful version of Slayer, and I'm not even a Slayer fan

as far as the word "fun" is concerned, Municipal Waste kicks ass

As far as fun, beer-soaked party thrash goes, Gama Bomb are far and away the best.

And speaking of Gama Bomb, looks like they're supporting Sabbat in may. Excellent.

I've seen them live too.

So much energy it hurts.

They really don't take themselves seriously though. They know full well that they aren't original, and they're really not trying to be.

Saw these geezers live at Brixton on Gigantour - and they were amazing

Although Mike (bass player) seemed a bit lacklustre to me - apparently the fame has gone to his head

Exactly. Evile, IMO, aren't that fun. They're not the fastest or heaviest band in the world, their riffs aren't memorable, the vocals are appalling.

If you want fun, go to a Municipal Waste show. Evile just bore me to tears, which is a shame, as from live banter/interviews they seem like really good guys.

Duncang, I know we've argued about this before, so I apologize

This band is alright for an aul headbang. Maybe with a can o' Bud.
Other than that I wouldnt touch off em and as Nosferatu said I'd listen to some Slayer instead. (Or maybe some Kreator )

Well, I'd whack on something more... intellectual myself. Evile just seems a little too run of the mill. I'm a sucker for originality, thus my obsession with everything Devin Townsend touches, Meshuggah, Behemoth etc. I need something original!

I love these guys, who cares if they aren't original or innovative, they sound good and they have only released one album, so who knows where they can go from here.

I've seen Evile a number of times and live they are really ****ing cool. They get a really good pit going. Their performance of Battle of the Bands 2 wasn't their best tbh. I left the gig feeling a little disappointed. Then again I was going to see them the NEXT day and they made up for it then.

While you can argue that they are not the most original band ever for a first album I think Enter the Grave ****ing rocks. I am sure they will grow and I'm really looking forward to their new stuff.

I've spoken to them at the underworld and barfly a number of times in London and I just get that vibe from them that they know they need to get better but at the same time they know they've got time. They've not let getting signed or recording with Flemming Rasmussen go to their head.

Gama Bomb (also just signed to earache) ****ing rock as well... plus they have funny as **** lyrics.

It annoys me when people say that they're not original. They're not trying to, they're like Municiple Waste - just want to have a great time playing Thrash.
