The Evil Dead are a band from Argentina that plays a melodic mixture of black, death, speed, and thrash metal with touches of traditional metal and classic rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "Earth Inferno" which was released by Witches Brew.
A very heavy sound along with melodic guitar leads start off the album and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and some of the riffing is heavily influenced by thrash while the vocals are mostly high pitched screams.
A great amount of NWOBHM elements can be heard in both the riffs and leads and clean guitars can also be heard at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and later songs add in touches of blues and 70's hard rock along with a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Back up shouts are also used at times and some of the faster riffing uses tremolo picking while also adding in speeds metal influences as the album progresses and clean playing is also added onto a later track while some of t he vocals add in a touch of death metal and the songs also bring in a great amount of diversity.
The Evil Dead plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the melodic black/death metal style while also adding in influences of thrash, speed metal, NWOBHM and classic rock to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Darkness, and Insanity themes.
In my opinion The Evil Dead are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black, death, speed, thrash metal, NWOBHM, and classic rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Electric Evil Revisited" "They Live!" "Songs Of The Hunt" and "Chariots Of The Gods". 8 out of 10.
