Evile - 'Monolith' (official lyric video)


In my dreams it wanders
Silhouette of stone in earth be stood
As it creeps beyond us
Greet the form awake minds never would

Nameless and old
Sinister and cold

Release me from your hold
Its lurking goes untold
Infecting day and night
It never leaves my sight

Praying for awakening
Lowered eyes devour perseverance
Spilling tales of anguish
Dismissing the weight of fear-filled words

Same sleep of torment
Crow falls to its death at evil's side
Paralysed to see thee
Monolith appear night after night

Nameless and old
Sinister and cold

Release me from your hold
Its lurking goes untold
Infecting day and night
It never leaves my sight


It never leaves my sight

Evile - 'The Unknown'
Δισκογραφική επιστροφή μετά από δύο (2) έτη για τους Evile. Το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα και έκτο συνολικά full length album των Άγγλων thrashers τιτλοφορείται "The Unknown" και κυκλοφόρησε στα μέσα Ιουλίου. Οι Evile δημιουργήθηκαν (τυπικά) το 2004. Ουσιαστικά όμως σχηματίσθηκαν το 1999 υπό το όνομα Metal Militia ως μπάντα διασκευών στα (παλαιά) τραγούδια των Metallica. Στην πορεία άρχισαν να συνθέτουν το δικό τους υλικό...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Since their formation in 2004, British thrash masters Evile have been turning heads and taking names, delivering pure thrash offerings blended with an uncompromising death metal assault.

This summer, following their latest, critically acclaimed album, Hell Unleashed (2021), July 14, 2023 sees the four-piece strike again with their sixth full-length offering, entitled The Unknown, via Napalm Records! This time, Evile prove that they are more than just a thrash band, churning out slower tempos with a heavier approach.

In addition, melodic vocals meet serious, in-depth lyrical topics - ranging from depression, overcoming loss and recurring nightmares, self-esteem and image, to more personal themes like living with dementia, struggling through the music industry and even the concerns of becoming a new parent.

On The Unknown, Evile - fronted by vocalist and guitarist Ol Drake – are more profound, personal and deep, while also proving heavier, stronger and more raucous than ever! Songs such as the epic title track, "The Unknown", showcase the band's haunting elements, balancing a dark, melodic and almost mesmerizing vibe with colossal, heavy riffage and thundering drums.

While "When Mortal Coils Shed“ doubles down on the stirring, "new" side of Evile, explosive tracks such as "Reap What You Sow" and "Monolith" leave nothing but a hammering world of sound building up to a stomping thrash manifesto!

The Unknown unchains the rampant songwriting talent of these British thrash metal frontrunners, proving that thrash does not always have to be fast-paced. It can also be in-your-face with outstanding musical skill, without fear of showing a still unknown face of lyrical depth and an enthralling, versatile, brave modern metal sound!»

Παρακολουθούμε το lyric video του τραγουδιού "Monolith", για το οποίο ο τραγουδιστής και κιθαρίστας Ol Drake (που έχει γράψει τους στίχους, ενώ η μουσική σύνθεση ανήκει στον Adam Smith) μας λέει σχετικά:

«Our 4th single from The Unknown is the juggernaut called ‘Monolith’. This song started after Adam sent over the main riff and we got to work on building on it. Our aim was for something menacing and dark, and this might be a contender for my favourite track on the album.

The song itself is based on a recurring nightmare I used to have when I was young. I had it for months on end and it always featured this monolith presence with eyes at its base. I would be terrified to go to sleep in case I have it again. Enjoy the chug!»
