Heavy Artillery Records has issued the following statement about inking a deal with Evil Survives to release the band's "Powerkiller" album in October:
"Heavy Artillery Records continues its war on false metal with the release of Powerkiller, the sophomore album from Canadian heavy/speed metal masters Evil Survives. Powerkiller is scheduled for worldwide release on CD and digitally on October 12th, 2010.
"Based out Winnipeg, Manitoba Evil Survives first began spreading their metallic mayhem when the in the summer of 2006 Front man Karl 'Axe n’ Smash' Warkentin and guitarist Adrian Riff began the arduous task of recruiting like minded metal heads. Finally after three months the search was complete and Evil Survives was born. By June 2008 Evil Survives made its first performance- by no coincidence...but fate! - outside of an Iron Maiden concert in their home town of Winnipeg. Less than a month later, Evil Survives entered the studio to record their debut full length album Metal Vengeance released exclusively on vinyl on by Canadian ‘War on Music’ label. More...
Canadian metallers Evil Survives has checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new bassist:
"As some of our fans might or might not know our original line-up has come to it's end. Spence created amazing music for this band for the 3 years he was with Evil Survives. There was no bitterness in his departure, he also gave plenty of notice before our last tour out west with Archon Legion and FYL that he would be leaving us. All of us in Evil Survives shall always remember Spencer for being a maniac on stage, his incredible attire, and his sheer brilliance for finger picking bass mastery.
"You can still hear him with his Stoner rock band Caniform with Karl on vocals (They fucking rule). We will never forget all the good and the bad times we have had with you brother, and wish you all the best. After much talk amongst the band we knew we needed a very skilled finger picker to fill his shoes. Wecome Eric Weiss (ex Port Amoral, The Cast) to the Evil Survives fold.
"This man knows much musical theory, and classical finger picking. Our first show with him will be with Prophet, Seventh Sin, and Striker at the Albert May 29th. More news coming soon, we will be taking a break after this show to focus on writing and allow Eric to learn all our tracks. Cheers and thanks everyone for your support."
