Top 50 of 2013: No.43: Evile - Skull (Earache)
Remember when Metallica were thrash?, back in the 80’s when thrash was thrash, when Slayer were releasing ‘Reign In Blood’ and ‘Master Of Puppets’ was slaying every album in it’s path, in an ideal world that’s when this album would have been released and it would today be considered one of the classics with the aforementioned albums. Which basically means Evile’s latest album ‘Skull’ is a destined to be a metal classic, so while people are going on about when any of the Big 4 will get off their arses and record something new and worthy of their legacy, Evile have decided to do it for them. Opener ‘Underworld’ kicks off with prime-hetfieldesque vocals over fast as fuck riffing and some of the most insane solo’s ever heard and from that point on there’s no let up, pile on top of this the clean vocals and massive chantalong anthemic songs and you have one of the best metal albums of not just last year but the last decade, oh and they're from Yorkshire which makes them better than other bands in general.
