I guess most people didn't like Evile's new album. I didn't like it either at the beginning. But after having listened to it a few more time later, I have to admit that my attitude has changed. Originally Infected Nations came across as a boring collection of riffs, but now it seems more coherent and having some sort of a meaning. Before the album's release, the band members were saying that it would be a more mature album than their debut, and in a way it is. With Infected Nations they have definitely made some progress with songwriting; however, they are still searching for their style, and one can hear that they are experimenting and trying something new on this record. And it doesn't sound all that bad if you give it some time.

Great Britain is the birthplace of Heavy Metal. It was Black Sabbath who with their doom-laden riffs ushered in the age of Heavy Metal. They were the founders of a movement which is in its fourth decade now. The British Isles have been home to many of Metal's greatest bands and Metal would be lacking in luster without them. However from the 90's onwards Metal seemed to be in a downward spiral in Britain. During that time bands like Oasis, The Verve, etc., were everywhere and they were not even Metal. The Darkness emerged as the closest thing to Led Zeppelin but they were swallowed by their new-found fame. I have to admit that I have not heard much of modern Metal bands from Britain, but there is one band that has caught my eye and that band, which I believe is the future of British Metal, is Evile. But, on the contrary, the album about which I am going to write is not quite the kind of savior that I expected.

Well personally I enjoy this album, but I don't think its no where near as good as their debut Enter The Grave, but Infected Nations is one of those albums where you have to give it a few (maybe more than a few) listens to really get the meat from the bone from this album...

But like I said, I really like this album it just takes time to get used to it...

No, it isn't you. I can't understand the difference of quality between their 2 albums. "Enter the grave" is brilliant and this...no comments...

He's using his "matured" voice in this album. I rather have their debut & their EP than this. "Infected Nations" & "Devoid of Thought" were great though. I really hope they go back to the faster, better singing stuff like on their debut. So sad that their bass player died though. Evile's cover tribute to Death's "Voice of the Souls" was freaking great, i just heard it

I enjoy the album myself...the singer here reminds me of James Hetfield a little though, but I think it is good. I haven't listened to their previous work though...

Def Leppard, yeah, Songs From The Sparkle Lounge is better than anything by Evile.

I agree that this is not as good as Enter The Grave, at least not to me, because I prefer faster-tempo songs--I did really like "Devoid of Thought" on this album. But it's still a good album with decent lyrics and lots of great riffs. Surely people ought to rate this higher than Slayer's World Painted Blood? That in my opinion was nowhere near as good as their albums from the '80s.

I once read an interview regarding this album, and the band themselves said that 'Enter the Grave' was an album full of "silly Concepts", thus opting for a more "serious" approach to their sound and concept regarding this, their second album. Whether that worked on their part or not is anyone's guess, but I genuinely don't think this album is all that bad. Some guitar riffs here are very complex, and the very same can be said for the songs themselves, but the title track and instrumental closer are two definitive staples of their talent if you ask me. Sure, those who preferred the band's debut over this (including me) would have probably hated this album when it came out, but it's clear the band wanted to be so much more than a shadow of their major influences.

For me, this is Evile's best album.
Doesn't seem like many people share this opinion though.

Their Entombed cover was also pretty damn good. Greatly versatile band.

I wouldn't call them versatile. They did pretty much release 1 album 4 times.

I do enjoy 3 of them to varying degrees, especially Five Serpent's Teeth. I did find Skull boring unfortunately.

Oh. It's you. The one who hates everything I love.

Ha, that's funny. If you look at our votes, our tastes converge quite often.

I guess. But... how can one hate Agalloch in such a way?

I think this album is only slightly worse than Enter The Grave.Can't really understand why you gave one 9 and the other 4.

I don't think thrash is supposed to be done like this. The album just sounds lifeless. The only positive thing here is some of the riffs that are better than the majority of other riffs here, that you've heard 1000 times before. What's the point in ~60 mins thrash albums anyway
