EVILE GIVE INSIGHT INTO WORKING WITH METALLICA PRODUCER FLEMMING RASMUSSEN
With the upcoming release of their debut album 'Enter The Grave' on Monday, Evile have revealed what it was like to work with the legendary Flemming Rasmussen. Evile guitarist Ol Drake has given an insight into their time in the studio and explains the impact that the famed Metallica producer had on them and also the effect that the band had on him:
"We made an old school thrasher feel young again, which to me shows us we're on the right track. If we can add to a Thrasher's collection, we're happy. That's what we want to do, give people some extra thrash action. We're not trying to be the Next Big anything, we just want to Thrash."
Working with such an influential figure within the thrash genre was understandably daunting for the fresh, fast-rising Yorkshire thrashers, but the guitarist admits that it turned out to be a comfortable working environment in the studio, Ol states:
"It was excellent working with Flemming. I admit his involvement with Metallica was slightly daunting but once we were in there he made us feel so at home and relaxed that it didn't matter anymore. He's just a really cool, easy to get along with guy. We couldn't be anymore pleased with how the album's turned out. Flemming's involvement has made it the best it can be. I think an important factor which added to the album's overall sound was the use of no samples on the album. We've always been against this modern, processed, mechanical sound, we wanted it to sound 'live'. Kick drums have balls, and you want to hear and feel ...those......balls. Flemming is the Man!!"
Fans can finally get their hands on this hotly anticipated release in UK/Europe on August 27 and September 25th in USA. View a video of the the band in the studio at www.youtube.com/watch?v=3t_alnxMbh8. To hear some advance tracks head over to www.myspace.com/evileuk.
