Finnish melodic death metal act Evil Drive - featuring Domination Black members Juha Beck (drums) and Ville Wiren (guitars) - released video clip for the new single "Anti-Genocide." The new song is taken from the still untitled upcoming second album to be released via Mighty Music worldwide in early 2017.
Recorded, mixed and mastered at Äänilaitos studio in Kotka with Juuso Elminen (Domination Black), "Anti-Genocide" presents Evil Drive’s melodic metal reinforced by Viktoria Viren’s over-the-top growling with one of the tightest guitar sections in the scene. The video was shot and filmed by the bands long time trusted man Tino-Viljami Vanhala.
Viktoria Viren comments: "'Anti-Genocide' has a totally different theme and feeling compared to our debut album 'The Land of the Dead,' which was all about the current world politics and war.
"The new track is about the history of the American Indians and about the fate they had to face when the white men came and took over their land."
"Anti-Genocide” also presents the bands updated line-up which now features guitarist Juha-Pekka “J-P” Pusa who recently replaced the band’s original guitarist Niko Huusari. Ville Wiren comments: “The new line-up makes the band sound better than ever. J-P definitely brings us a lot of new energy and ideas and helps the band to find ac ompletely new level. We've finally found ourselves, our musical style and finally have access to all the musical tools we've ever wanted: strong growling vocals, two great guitarists, and a great rhythm section. We trust that our upcoming album will be a turning point for Evil Drive, and we are excited to be with Mighty Music for this new chapter."

Front woman Viktoria Viren comments: "One and a half years of hard work has shaped Evil Drive a brilliant metal machine."
