British thrashers EVILE stormed onto the scene a few years ago, quickly going from a small-town band to playing shows around the world with their heroes, winning a coveted Metal Hammer Golden God award, and being featured on the front cover of the UK's Terrorizer magazine.
Now, Terrorizer have visited the band in their hometown to talk about growing up in Huddersfield, their forthcoming new album FIVE SERPENTS TEETH, and their place at the forefront of the thrash metal revival.
Terrorizer also visited a new exhibition featuring the band, called "Edison to Evile", which looks back at a hundred of years of music in and around Huddersfield.
Terrorizer magazine's MERLIN ALDERSLADE comments:
"Going to visit Evile in their hometown was one of the funnest features I've had the pleasure of being involved in. Seeing Matt, Ol et al in their natural habitat, seeing what they mean to Huddersfield and being able to share a cuppa with Ma and Pa Drake only enforced my long-held belief that Evile aren't just a premier thrash band - they're bloody nice chaps as well!"
Terrorizer Editor LOUISE BROWN adds:
"Terrorizer has seen Evile go from Bloodstock's unsigned stage to the world stage and have had the fortune to join them on their many adventures. Why is this a pleasure? Because they're belly-achingly funny, genius musicians, true metal maniacs and, most of all, they are just awful nice fellas. You couldn't ask to hang out with a more down-to-earth bunch and to be invited to their home to see the environment that undoubtedly shaped them was a real honour."
