British thrashers EVILE have set “Five Serpents’ Teeth” as the title of their new album, due on August 29 via Earache Records. The CD was recorded at Parlour Studios in Kettering, U.K., with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR), who also worked on the band’s previous CD, 2009’s “Infected Nations”.
EVILE vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matt Drake has recorded a video message for the fans in which he discusses the new album and the concept behind it. Check it out below.
Commented EVILE lead guitarist Ol Drake: “The other day, Russ sent the final masters for the album over. It sounded even better than I expected it to. The past two years of hard work, and the work put in in the studio, have really paid off.
“The few people who’ve heard the album so far have praised it highly, making me, and us, very proud. The album has such a unique production sound which surprised me; Russ’ skills have really shined on this record. It has an old classic sound, while staying huge and menacing.
“Keep an eye out for all things EVILE, as 2011 will be a very busy year for us. See you on A road!”
EVILE’s 2009 album, “Infected Nations”, was recently re-released as a special redux version. The redux includes a bonus disc featuring EVILE’s popular cover of PANTERA’s “Cemetery Gates”, as well as eight songs recorded at a live rehearsal in the studio and six songs recorded live at Hammerfest in 2009. The European version also includes a free “Infected Nations” album cover woven patch and an EVILE sticker sheet.
