The third studio release from British thrashers Evile, released October 2011 on Earache Records, this is a belter of an album! Already working its way towards being one of my favourite thrash albums.
The album starts off with the title track, Five Serpents Teeth, with 50 seconds of an eery evil ambient with a guitar riff and sounds of snakes rattling, suddenly hits you in the face with epic thrash metal. Followed by In Dreams Of Terror, the thrashing doesnt stop there. Come the third track, this gives you a chance to grab a breath as this is Eviles "Enter Sandman", Cult, absolutely brilliant track with brilliant lyrics. This mid tempo track is the one that sticks in your head! Next up are Eternal Empire, Xaraya, two solid thrash tracks. Then, Origin Of Oblivion. The last minute of this track consists of a massive headbanging riff accompanied by a chant of "I will never become machine!" Brilliant! Then after youve finished slamming round to Centurion, you are presented with In Memoriam, a slow track comparable to Metallicas Fade To Black, dedicated to Eviles former fallen bassist Mike Alexander, this is a teary but fantastic! But the thrashing doesnt stop there! Once you've got your breath back.. Of we thrash again with the last two tracks Descent Into Madness and Long Live The New Flesh.. You will be begging for more!
Quite possibly one of the best metal albums of 2011.
Ever wondered why at almost every metal gig theres almost always a group of guys screaming "SLAYER" at the top of their lungs? Here is your answer.
You just know an albums going to be a good one when it starts with a scream thats just short of ten seconds. This album is just short of 30 minutes, but if you havent got whiplash in that amount of time. Take this CD out of your CD Player and go hang your head in shame. Highly influenced by punk fused with extreme metal the songs are lightning fast and leave you crying out for more. With guitar riffs so fast yet so perfectly executed and double bass drumming to destroy your grandparents pacemakers, this is quite possibly one of the greatest metal albums ever recorded.
If you're not already a thrash metal fan.. Listen to this album and I guarantee you will be hooked!
