Evile - Five Serpent’s Teeth Cover

It's 100 per cent Evile...

The coltishness of youth might be fading but there’s now compositional grandeur in its place to inflect Evile’s thrash with the sort of power that might just assuage some of those still sore that ‘…Puppets’-era Metallica is long gone. Ever since their 07 debut ‘Enter The Grave’ posited Evile at the vanguard of thrash’s second coming – certainly in Britain – they’ve had the songwriting strong enough to endure the passing of trends. ‘Five Serpent’s Teeth’ is 100 per cent square in the Evile MO: twisted kinetic riffs from the Brothers Drake push the needle into the red before resolving themselves in anthemic choruses. Three albums in, all hail the new(-ish) flesh.
