2:29 PMEvil Survives released new album
Following the release of their second album Powerkiller during October 2010, Canadian heavy metal heroes EVIL SURVIVES make their second appearance in the Heavy Artillery catalog with a reissue of their 2008 debut album Metal Vengeance. Available for the first time ever on CD and digital formats, Metal Vengeance was originally released on Halloween October 31st 2008 exclusively on vinyl format by renowned Canadian vinyl-only metal label WAR ON MUSIC Records.
Guitarist Adrian Riff and frontman Karl "Axe” Warkentin wrote and rehearsed the material that would make up Metal Vengeance for close to two years between 2006 and 2008 before compiling a solid lineup during spring 2008. The rest of the pieces began to fall into place quickly and naturally after that and by June the band had played their fi rst local gigs. By July of 2008 EVIL SURVIVES entered the studio to record their debut fell length which was masterfully engineered by John Paul Peters. The influences can be read pretty clearly: countless cold winter nights spent drinking too much Canadian beer, and listening to way too much Iron Maiden and Mercyful Fate. But looking past the surface, influences go deeper, covering a wider spectrum of NWOBHM, traditional & thrash metal such as Satan, Raven, Priest, Coroner, Sacrifice, Megadeth and more.
Their debut album well received by metal fans and press worldwide, EVIL SURVIVES have since wasted no opportunities to play for live metal audiences throughout the U.S. and Canada. The band are once again set to conquer North America during April and May 2011 on the "East of Evil” tour. Upon completion of their latest North American tour EVIL SURVIVES will then set their sights on Europe for late 2011 as they put the finishing touches on their third, yet un-named full- length album which is tentatively set for release during that same time.
