Against Evil

Lying here on my living room floor I can't help but be charmed whilst writing this review. Against Evil are the kind of thrash band who understand the fun that power metal can have and inject that into their sound. I guess you could say it's kind of Iced Earth-y but I feel like that would be off the mark. Instead Against Evil are crafting thrash metal that does not lose its sense of bombast and uses big choruses and primarily clean vocals to give the listener the chance to fall in love with something truly epic in scale. What happens with Against Evil is you find yourself getting lost in crushing grooves that are brought to the next level by some truly next level clean vocals. It means that Against Evil have a fairly unique sound in an extremely crowded thrash metal scene. Sure there tracks can be a little rough around the edges, but these dudes are still just starting out and falling in love with their strange sonic triumph is wonderfully easy.
