UK thrash masters Evile will enter Parlour Studios this Sunday to begin recording their third full-length studio album and once again with Earache Records. The band’s follow-up to 2009’s “Infected Nations” will also see the band rejoined with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir). Evile will be playing a show in London this Friday, March 18 with Chthonic before heading to Prestatyn, Wales on Saturday for a performance at Hammerfest.
Check out what Evil guitarist Ol Drake has to say about their upcoming ventures here.
Commented Evile guitarist Ol Drake: “This has been one hell of a 2011 already. We’ve been working non-stop on the material for Evile’s third album since early last year, and the past few months saw the workload pile up drastically. We’re on top of it though.
“Tomorrow we play London with our friends Chthonic from Taiwan, then we head over to Prestatyn for Hammerfest. Just like with ‘Infected Nations’, we’re again heading to the studio shortly after playing Hammerfest, though this time it’s the very day after. To the great Parlour Studios we will venture along with the even greater Russ Russell. He was at the helm/desk/brain for ‘Infected Nations’, and we see him as a member of the band, even more so on this third offering. We’ll be in there for approximately a month, and we’ll be focusing on roughly ten tracks to delight your ears.
“If I was to say what the direction of this third album would be, I’d have to say a mix of the approach to ‘Enter the Grave’, the ideas on ‘Infected Nations’ and an amalgamation of brand new ideas we can’t wait to try out. We have to try out new things as artists; we don’t ever ever want to stick to doing the same thing all the time. It will be aggressive yet mature, in my opinion, and before you ask — yes, fast.”
