Song of the Week – Thrasher – 31 May 2011
There is nothing like the sweet sound of thrash. England’s Evile is carrying on the torch of many old school thrash bands like Exodus, Testament, and Death Angel (talking about from the late 80’s). To sum up Evile in one word I would say “shred” because that is what they do. I missed them when they were supposed to open for Amon Amarth and Entombed in 2009 because the bass player passed away. I was fortunate to catch them last year at Sonisphere on one of the smaller stages. The stage might have been smaller, but it was packed so much that the band actually seemed both surprised and flattered. Evile is making a name for themselves in and around the U.K. So they will have the nod for the song of the week for Thrasher off their debut album Enter The Grave. The song is also accompanied by a video…almost a million hits so far. They must be doing something right. See for yourselves and have a great week.
