Evil Survives - Metal Vengeance Review

back to reviews

Artist: Evil Survives

Album: Metal Vengeance

Released: 2008

A mixture of styles and genres: Heavy Metal


You need to be a hero to play music in the style of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest or any other trend maker. Evil Survives is a typical example of Heavy Metal bands playing music coinciding with Iron Maiden in many respects. And why do you need to be a hero in such case? Just because with the existing competition you have to not just play such music, but to do it in the best possible way.
Well, Evil Survives with their debut album called "Metal Vengeance&auot;. Naturally, not only the voice, but also the famous Iron Maiden's rhythm, which is frequently used by many NWoBHM bands, arrests one's attention first of all. The voice is versatile, it is both Bruce Dickinson, and Rob Halford and some singers of the US heavy of the 80s, and some screams a-la King Diamond. The guitar solos also remind of Iron maiden - there is no way out, any guitar work will remind of Iron maiden with such a rhythm. But if music has no this omnipresent rhythm, forget about Iron maiden. You are listening to the real US Heavy in the traditions of the 80s (despite the fact that Evil Survives are Canadians).
Well, what is Evil Survives? They rise above the impudent use of other bands' songs, brand riffs, choruses, etc. Let the stylistics have nothing new, but such music can never become annoying, because who will be against plunging into the world of the true classic Heavy Metal once again?
What future can await this band? I don't know, but the second album of the band has been released not long ago (which I have not heard yet), and this means that the band has prospects and which to create something, so everything is in your hands, guys!
