DVP 170 EVOKE – Seeds of Death (2020)

After a demo and rehearsal tape in 2016 the band barricaded into their bunker, wrote songs and let them ripe over 4 long years until 2020 has finally seen their first album Seeds of Death being released. The classic three piece has produced 7 tunes with a playing time of just over half an hour – which fits perfectly for this black thrash assault on your ears. Who could take it any longer?! And with (lLive) members being shared with Black Viper, Enter Obscurity and Deathhammer, you get an idea that Evoke are at the forefront of evil metal from Norway.

DVP 169 Toxikull – Cursed and Punished (2020)

Hailing from Portugal, TOXIKULL burst onto the scene fully formed in 2016 with their debut album, Black Sheep. Indeed black sheep amongst the modern metal landscape, the quartet unleashed a fury of classy-yet-OTT speed metal pumped full of thrash overdrive – a sound that, while classically rooted, didn’t conveniently slot itself into one category. Leading the charge were the authoritative vocals of ex-Midnight Priest frontman Lex Thunder, here also playing guitar. But Thunder’s banshee cries weren’t the only arsenal: his bandmates shredded with the best of ‘em, putting considerable chops to good use with cruising-yet-crunchy ease.

A couple EPs followed in 2018, but TOXIKULL really hit a fever pitch with their second album, 2019’s Cursed and Punished. Everything killer about their debut album was magnified tenfold, everyone going for glory and for the throat, delivering unbridled METAL MAYHEM that was simply impossible not to get swept up in! Each element here positively bristled with electricity and urgency – guitars razor-sharp but dynamic, the leads utterly blistering but with also with memorability, the rhythm section pumping like a locomotive on the way to Hell, and of course, Thunder’s vocals reaching new heights of grandeur and…well, height – and all of them were coated in a gleaming production job, courtesy of Miguel Tereso from Demigod Recordings, that sacrificed not ounce of power…in fact, quite the opposite! Through it all, the songwriting was nothing short of stunning; each of these 10 songs could be an anthem itself, and TOXIKULL banged ‘em out in a cool ‘n’ compact 34 minutes, making the listener beg for more.

Looking for a modern answer to old Helstar, Liege Lord, and Jag Panzer but with speed and power to spare? Look no further than TOXIKULL’s Cursed and Punished, at last unleashed on the most perfect format for classic metal: VINYL!

DVP 168 Time Rift – Eternal Rock (2020)

If you keep your hair long, your leather tight, and your denim dirty, TIME RIFT have the heavy-metal-rock-and-roll you’re looking for. Formed on the damp streets of Portland, Oregon, TIME RIFT have been cranking out riffs to rev your Camaro to since 2014. With their first EP release, Cold Future, TIME RIFT established themselves as a band whose sound has one foot firmly placed in 1974 hard rock.

Fast forward to 2020 to their full length debut Eternal Rock – an 8-track-affair – and their other foot is suddenly kicking your ass with some NWOBHM bangers. A power trio with an emphasis on power, TIME RIFT features vocalist and bassist Levi Campbell handling the low end and high wails, Justin Kaye on the ripping licks, and Terrica Jennings holding it all together on drums.

If TIME RIFT shows the modern world of rock and roll anything, it’s that time is irrelevant, and rock is eternal.

DVP 163 Töxik Death – Sepulchral Demons (2020)

Due to severe line-up problems, it took the Norwegian black thrashers several years until this glorious return with their sophomore album! When the debut tried to get as fast as possible, this 2nd effort is more varied and next to the obvious evil thrash classic vibes you can also identify some d-beat influences as well.

DVP 162 EARLY MOODS – Spellbound (2020)

Hailing from Los Angeles, EARLY MOODS formed in 2015 as an amalgamation of various experienced acts such as Rude, (ex-)Skeletal Remains, Fortress (California) and Nightmare (USA). From the beginning, the goal was simple yet sturdy: to pay homage to such classic bands as Candlemass, Witchfinder General, Pentagram, Trouble, and the almighty Black Sabbath. However, it wasn’t until 2020 when the band’s first recording appeared, originally self-released digitally on April 20th.

Bearing the evocative title Spellbound, form surely meets content here, as EARLY MOODS entrance the listener with molten grooves and bewitching atmosphere; this is tried-and-true HEAVY DOOM that doesn’t step past 1980! Naturally, traces of the aforementioned influences are tastefully spread across the 27-minute record, but each of its five component songs convey an alluring, addicting identity that’s entirely their own. Not for nothing are EARLY MOODS monikered as such, for their aeons-old aura and doomed-out swagger bespeaks an impossibly eldritch aspect – precisely, the kind’s perfect for proto-doom and its eventual genesis into traditional doom.

Darkly colored with sulfurous leads that’ll ruin your day, EARLY MOODS dare you to gaze into their crystal ball and become Spellbound!
