Evocation palaa death metal-juurilleen: uusi single kuunneltavissa


Länsinaapurin melodisen death metallin veteraaniyhtye Evocation julkaisee lähes viiden vuoden tauon jälkeen uuden albumin ”The Shadow Archetype” maaliskuussa. Jo vuonna 1991 ensiaskeleensa ottaneen yhtyeen mukaan levy palaa ruotsalaisen death metallin juurille lisäten samalla mukaan bändille tuttuja thrash-vaikutteita. Ensimmäinen single ”Children Of Stone” on nyt kuunneltavissa. Bändin edellisen levyn ”Illusions Of Grandeur” (2012) jälkeen kokoonpanossa on tapahtunut muutoksia kitaristi ja rumpali Janne sekä Vesa Kenttäkummun jätettyä yhtyeen, vaikeudet kuitenkin Evocationin mukaan inspiroivat materiaalia entistä intensiivisemmälle tasolle. ”The Shadow Archetype” julkaistaan Metal Bladen kautta 10.3.2017.

Bändin kitaristi Marko Palmén kommentoi:

In my opinion, the new album is a step towards the roots of the band, although it also has a footing in the future. I think the sound of the new album in many ways reflect the dynamic of me and Simon, who wrote the music for the album. I’m more of an old-school death metal kind of guy and Simon comes from the younger generation of death metal freaks who enjoy technicality and brutality. Somehow, we just merged those two sides of death metal into the creation that will be known as ’The Shadow Archetype’. But I also have to point out that the album is a creation made by all the members of Evocation and I think we all pushed ourselves to the very limit of what is achievable. I’m certain that we all can stand proud of the album in the future. We started recording the drums in late June 2015 and did the last recordings with vocals in June 2016. So, we spent roughly a year in the studio with ’The Shadow Archetype’. In my opinion, the production is our strongest so far. It has all the elements I want in a production; raw brutality with a distinctive punch!
