UK thrashers Evile will hit Ireland in January 2023 in The Grand Social
Evile are an English thrash metal band from Huddersfield, formed in 2004. They have experienced numerous line-up changes over the years, with drummer Ben Carter being the only member of the original line-up to have stayed consistently. The current line-up consists of Carter, lead guitarist and vocalist Ol Drake, bassist Joel Graham, and rhythm guitarist Adam Smith, who replaced Drake’s older brother Matt in 2020.
Evile are notable for being part of the thrash metal resurgence movement of the mid-to-late 2000s, and they were highly praised by Kerrang! for “Carrying the genre’s whole ‘revival’ on their shoulders.” To date, the band has released five studio albums: Enter the Grave (2007), Infected Nations (2009), Five Serpent’s Teeth (2011), Skull (2013) and Hell Unleashed (2021); a sixth studio album is in the works, as of June 2021.
