British thrashers Evile will release their new album, Skull, on May 27th in Europe via Earache Records and on June 11th in the USA via Century Media/Earache Records. This highly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s Five Serpent’s Teeth was once again recorded with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, England. The artwork for the album was painted by artist Eliran Kantor (Testament, Sodom, Hatebreed). To hear the new album track, “Head of the Demon,” hit the YouTube player below!

I’ve been a fan of UK thrash band Evile since the release of their record, Into The Grave. They’ve always had a way of cranking out solid, good quality thrash metal and this new disc is no exception. Initially I curious to see if they could pull it off without original bassist Mike Alexander (Alexander died suddenly back in 2009), but they do more than just pull it off; with speed and tons of bone-crushing riffs they knock it out of the park!
