Evile Streaming Preview Of New Album

British thrashers Evile are due to release their new album "Five Serpent's Teeth" on September 26th, 2011. A 15-minute preview of the album, featuring one-and-a-half minutes of each song , is available to listen to in the player below.

Evile guitarist Ol Drake comments:

"I was delighted to hear iTunes upped their track preview length to 1:30, but everyone doesn't have iTunes. A fan of ours, Austin H, put all the previews into one video on YouTube. I support people 'trying before buying' so I'd love to let people know these previews exist to give you an idea of the album instead of downloading the album in time to come - after all, when people download an album, they more often than not say it's to 'try the album out', so I see this as quite a fair compromise to condone the previews being heard by everyone. I'm not wholly against downloading, I'm more against the disrespect shown to artists by downloading an artist's work, liking it and not rightly paying for it. Bands these days, not just Evile, need their fans' support. Support music!"

Evile Reveals New Album Artwork

Evile will be releasing the new album "Five Serpent's Teeth" on September 26th, 2011. The band has now revealed the album's artwork, which can be viewed below. Evile's Matt Drake commented on the new album cover:

"So here it is, the artwork for Five Serpent's Teeth. As is always the case with Evile, we try and do things a bit differently from what we've done before, so we fancied something a bit more design-orientated this time around. It's been done by a great artist by the name of Gustavo Sazes and he really came through for us as we were struggling to find something that visually accompanied the music, so hats off to the man! Make what you will of any meaning you think the cover may hold, much the same as you will be able to do with the lyrical content of the album; we know what it means to us, so enjoy!"

Evile also recently posted a cover online of the Lady GaGa track "Born This Way," which can be heard by heading over here.

Evile Reveals New Album Track Listing

British thrashers Evile recently finished recording their forthcoming new album, "Five Serpent's Teeth," which is due to be released on September 26th. Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments on the track listing for the new album:

"Here's the full track list for our new album, Five Serpent's Teeth. There's such diversity through this album that I simply can't wait for people to hear these tracks. We spent a long time in the studio and at home figuring out the best order we could place these tracks in to flow perfectly through the album. The tracks go from the stomping heaviness of 'Cult', to the eeriness/melancholy of 'In Memoriam', to the pure insanity of 'Descent Into Madness'. You may have already hear 'Eternal Empire' at earache.com/fst, and if you were at Download festival last weekend and you came to see us, you heard 'Cult'."

The track listing is as follows:

1. Five Serpent's Teeth
2. In Dreams of Terror
3. Cult
4. Eternal Empire
5. Xaraya
6. Origin of Oblivion
7. Centurion
8. In Memoriam
9. Descent Into Madness
10. Long Live New Flesh

U.K. Thrash Documentary Posts Trailer Online

A new trailer has been posted online for the forthcoming documenary film, "A History Of A Time To Come," which looks at the thrash metal scene and history in the United Kingdom. You can check it out below. The film makers have also announced that a book tie-in will be released, written by journalist Greg Mofitt, who has written for Metal Hammer and Terrorizer amongst other publications.

"In 2003 I had the idea to set out the story of U.K. thrash," Greg explains. "I lived through the scene as a teenager and felt that although the U.K. was the underdog compared to, say, the US and Germany, there was still a great tale to tell. It’s a story of the British bulldog spirit facing down adversity and in that sense U.K. thrash was typical of the nation. With few exceptions, British thrash bands received very little global coverage back in the day, so this is also a largely untold story. When I originally devised the book concept, U.K. thrash was nothing but a dusty chapter in history. Today, things are quite different. The scene has sparked into life once again and veteran outfits continue to reform, some sounding better than ever. When I heard about the 'A History of a Time to Come' documentary and met the guys behind it, all the pieces finally fell into place and the timing was perfect."

Speaking on the book, the film makers stated: "We’re delighted to be working in tandem with Greg on the project, and especially excited to see how the two projects will compliment each other. One of our concerns from the outset was that perhaps the film format would limit our ability to convey the story of the scene in enough depth to satisfy the fans, but with the introduction of the written story we feel confident that everyone, from hardcore fan to the casual cinema- goer will find their level of interest covered."

Both the film and the book are still in the production stages and anyone who feels they might be able to contribute in some way, be it with first hand stories, video/audio materials or pictures etc. is encouraged to get in touch. More...

Evile Announces New Album Title

British thrashers Evile have officially revealed that their forthcoming new album will be titled "Five Serpent's Teeth." Evile recorded the new album at Parlour Studios in Kettering, UK, with producer Russ Russel, who also recorded the band's previous release, 2009's "Infected Nations." Vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matt Drake has recorded a video message for the fans, in which he discusses the new album and the concept behind it.

Evile lead guitarist Ol Drake comments on the album:

"The other day, Russ sent the final masters for the album over. It sounded even better than I expected it to. The past two years of hard work, and the work put in in the studio, have really paid off. The few people who've heard the album so far have praised it highly, making me, and us, very proud. The album has such a unique production sound which surprised me; Russ' skills have really shined on this record. It has an old classic sound, while staying huge and menacing. Keep an eye out for all things Evile, as 2011 will be a very busy year for us. See you on A road!"

"Five Serpent's Teeth" is due to be released on Earache Records on August 29th, 2011.
