The Evil Dead Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

We are mainly doing promotion at this moment ,some new music has been written too.

2.At the end of January, you had released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

I don’t think its that much different from the previous album but it has a darker touch and it’s a lot more focused and cohesive perhaps ,the first one was a collection of songs we were doing live and Earth Inferno was written with an album in mind .That makes the listening experience more fluid .

3.You refer to your music as 'Electric Evil Metal', can you tell us a little bit more about this term?

We don’t care much about labeling the music but since people cant seem to pinpoint a genre to us that title sounds about right, metal that explodes in every direction and is fun and dangerous . Rock n Roll should always be dangerous ,it’s the Devil´s music after all.

4.This is your first album since 2012, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time frame?

Touring the first album throughout Argentina ,rehearsing,writing and recording the new album. It took us a long time to find the right label and we are pretty happy with the overall result so far.

5.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

The whole album deals with darknes,,death ,insanity and the occult

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'The Evil Dead'?

The name came from the movie ,we didn’t give it much thought and should have,makes googling a bitch.We wanted a name that evoked evil and fun at the same time ,both characteristics of our music.

7.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We did some really good ones opening for other bands , one gig that I remember was playing on a stadium in berazategui city for the Guinness book of records that wanted a whole week of bands playing non stop,two stages had been set up and when one band was done the other started .Was pretty bizarre. We try to make our live show an experience that draws the crowd in and give them the best show possible ,this is very hard to pull on small stages though.

8.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?

Not at the moment but we are open for any offers

9.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of extreme metal?

So far reviews have been excellent but the album has only been out for 10 days ,it’s a little early to say but I think it will do well.

10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

The band will tread the same path when it comes to music ,if we wanna pull a “load” or “st anger” i´ll do it as a solo project but The Evil Dead will remain the same.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

Bands that have a direct influence on our music?Metallica ,Dissection,Iron Maiden,Blue Oyster Cult,ACDC,Mayhem,Bathory, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many many more .

12.How would you describe your views on Occultism?

This is very personal but I will say that I do believe in the Occult and that it is not to be taken lightly.

13.What are some of your non musical interests?

Movies,books,traveling, drinking .I have an interest in languages too.

14.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thank you for the interview ,good interesting questions. Buy our album and get possessed ,hopefully well see you around on tour !

The Evil Dead/Earth Inferno/Witches Brew/2017 CD Review

  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  the  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.
