This is 80's Thrash. Not melodic hardcore pseudo-metal calling itself Thrash. This is the real deal.

With their debut release, Evile are clearly stuck in the 80's. Every track on this album is pure old-school Thrash, and even casual listeners will not have difficulty picking out the early Slayer and Metallica influences. The vocals are almost indistinguishable from Tom Araya (pre- Seasons in the Abyss), and the riffing sounds like it came straight from Reign in Blood. Lyrically, it takes little imagination to map many of the tracks directly to songs from the 80's: "Thrasher" (-> "Metal Militia"), "Burned Alive" (-> "Am I Evil"), "Schizophrenia" (-> "The Frayed Ends Of Sanity"), "Bathe in Blood" (-> umm . . .). Even one of the tracks with no direct 80's counterpart draws its inspiration from an action film of the same era ("First Blood").

Rating: 10 A thrash masterpiece. It has major Metallica influence, just a little heavier. But i hate it when people keeps comparing thrash bands to Metallica & Slayer, enough already its annoying as hell. Every band has at least their own sound, mostly. Every song on here is great. "We Who are About to Die" is the longest, slowest, & weakiest, but it goes on to their next album "Infected Nations". "Enter the Grave" is slower but better than the demo & "Killer from the Deep" is better than the EP version. The two bonus songs are good as well.

Rating: 8 I wouldn't go as far as to say it is a masterpiece, but i do think evile are leading the new wave of thrash metal for others to follow, and its album like this that prove that point. Mind you, 'We who are about to die' is just silly.

Rating: 9 One of the best thrash album of all time! If they did this in the 80's, they would be bigger than metallica/slayer right now.

The difference being thrash in the '80s was like a newly established thing. Everything was new territory. These guys didn't invent anything, they just re-played what several other musicians wrote before them.

That's exactly my point. They will never become Metallica. But there are very few bands today can produce high quality thrash albums, even for the "big four". Actually I don't like to see them "invent" something else, just play what they are good at and keep writing real thrash metal albums.

  A very cool old-school sounding Thrash album. Unfortunately the bass player died on a tour, after the release. RIP Mike Alexander

Rating: 7 God, this is one awesome thrash metal Album. Reminds me of old Exodus sometimes.

  A decent little debut even if it was completely unoriginal. At the time I was just grateful for pure Thrash being resurrected.


Shame no great tree bloomed from this little acorn.

It's barelly impossible to find a new Thrash band that's original

They were doing interesting Thrash stuff in the late 1990s, early 2000s with stuff like The Haunted, Shadows Fall etc. The problem with modern thrash is the predominance of retro thrash acts, most of which are third rate. It's a mentality of being unoriginal.

Worst thing is most of these new acts don't even come close to the old guys still playing Thrash ala Testament or Overkill in terms of song writing.

I thought Evile had potential but they never did anything with it.

You couldn't be more correct ! But there are still some awesome bands like Sylosis (wich isn't like Evile).
It seems that this bands are too much influenced by the Bay area scene and etc.

Not heard Sylosis - I'll have to check them out. Totally agree on most of these bands being too heavily influenced by Bay Area and overall 1980s Thrash scene. Yet they ignore the interesting evolutions and fusions in Thrash in the late 1980s - early 1990s.
