5.0 out of 5 stars New to this band? Hear my call!!! June 13, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I've never been too big on this band. I listened to Enter The Grave, thought they were solid but I didn't know if they were worth spending money over and all. So as a new fan of this band, I will say I am pleased to have this in my collection. The riffs on the album are incredibly catchy. The first track, "Underworld" has a nice Megadeth throwback to it. The drumming isn't the best of all the thrash bands. BUT. The vocals are great. The "Underworld" chorus proves that. "Skull" is next and has a dreadful feeling to it. Sounds like Master Of Puppets era Metallica in a way. This track also contains an onslaught of riffs. The break down to the mid pace riff is excellent. The solo is impressive as well. "The Naked Sun" has some of the best drumming so far on the album. Lyrical wise, its apocalyptic, which I love. If you like East Coast gang shouts, you have them here. The fourth track has a Slayer(ish) intro. A mid pace riff crushes through the whole song. "Tomb" this is where Evile hits a stroke of genius. The melodic intro fits the sorrow filled track so well. It is honestly a hauntingly beautiful track. Almost like Testament's "Cold Embrace" from Dark Roots of Earth. Powerful, and beautiful, while still retaining its brutality. An amazing track. "Words Of The Dead" compared to the previous track it is a little bit of let down. It still retains its attitude. The drumming is the high note with some of the most intense on the album. "Outsider" EXPLODES from the beginning. It has a great riff to lead the whole song and the solo is great as well. "What You Become" a post thrash mid pace groove metal riff chugs along for the whole track. The chorus is great. "New Truth, Old Lies" the closer to this 2013 metal attack. Half way through the track we hear another Slayer influenced solo. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Master of Puppets? July 9, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow, have loved this band since the first record and to see the skill just grow is awesome. The rerelease of the first CD with DVD of them playing the whole album in their practice space sold me on their potential future and the new record shows it.

This the fourth release should be the breakout album. Every metalhead should buy this now. Great riffs, solos and production make this a crisp and cutting thrash record. Have not stopped listening since I got it. Usually listen to audiobooks on my commute but this has taken over. Just hope no speeding tickets happen :)

Again, buy this now if you like early Metallica, Overkill etc....you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! July 9, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best if not better albums Evile has done. After a few listens I was unable to put it away. I just crank it and keep it going. This is well worth the money in my opinion. Unfortunately I am only able to give it 5 stars where it really deserves 10. The only downside is Amazon was authorized to add an extended version of New truths, old lies. Its a fantastic song just not suitable where iTunes has a different song. Oh well, not complaining. A masterpiece in my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another killer album from Evile. June 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great album. Lots of kick ass guitar solos and riffs with good bass, drums, and vocals. Evile keeps putting out killer albums and hope they continue to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thrash throwback December 7, 2013
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
Interesting that Evile has only been around almost ten years, but their sound covers 30 plus years of thrash metal. In no way do these guys rip anybody off. If anything, they're paying tribute to old school thrash. Anybody that hasn't been impressed by what the older bands are doing lately should look to bands like Evile. These guys do Metallica better than Metallica themselves. Skull was my introduction to these guys, and after listening, I had to get the other three. So if you're new and wondering which album to start with, any album is actually good. Sucks that lead guitarist Ol Drake left soon after this album came out, but don't think for a second that he slacked on his performance.

"New" is not entirely accurate in describing Evile, who have been around for four albums and several more years beyond that, but it does help to differentiate between the old classic thrash titans and the next generation featuring Havoc, possibly the U.S.' best new thrash band, Evile, Warbringer, and maybe Holy Grail, although that band flirts with progressive metal a little more.
After their last album "Five Serpents Teeth", which found them singing more melodically, and veering a tad too close to Metallica's "Black Album" days, they decided to pull off the gloves and return to their down and dirty roots with the blistering "Skull", which could have easily been the second album after their classic debut "Enter The Grave", with its thrash anthem "Thrasher". Now, I like "Five Serpents Teeth" because it still had plenty of heavy tunes and Ol Drake remains one of the most underrated and exciting guitarists out there. It did slow down here and there, and many thrash bands didn't like the direction. "Infected Nations" had Evile experimenting and getting close to progressive territory, so "Skull" has blended the musicality of the last two albums with the ferociousness of their debut.
The album immediately sets the bar high with excellent riffs and songwriting, along with an energy that recalls early Pantera. The Drake brothers employ guitar harmonies to great effect, especially on "Head of the Demon". The following "Tomb" is slower but intricate and allows a melodic moment in without being a wimped out filler track.
Evile are a great band, the U.K.'s best thrash band hands down, and as I said before, Ol Drake should be a guitar god. His playing is original, incredibly intense and shows much more fire than just about any contemporary competition. Perhaps Dave Davidson of Revocation is equally as good, albeit a bit quirkier, but somewhere I'm pretty sure Dimebag Darrell is headbanging along with a protege who plays with the same intensity he did.

not as goo as the last album, but I still think they are great. If you like early metallica with a more modern spin, then this will help you get your fix.
