EvilSpell are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of black and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Necrology" which was released by Black Side Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some melodic guitar leads which also leads up to more of an old school thrash metal direction and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the bands musical sound and after the intro the band starts adding in elements of first wave black metal into their musical sound.
Vocals when they are added into the music are old school thrash style vocals that are heavily influenced by the German bands of the 80's and you can also hear a touch of melody in the aggressive screams and after awhile blast beats can be hear d in certain sections of the recording and the band also brings in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
The solos and leads the band uses are in a pure 80's metal direction and you can also hear some element s of hardcore punk being mixed in with their old school black/thrash sound at times and all of the tracks sound like they could of easily been recorded and released in the early to mid 80's and there no more modern influences present anywhere on the recording and on the last track acoustic guitars are added into the music briefly before making a return back to a heavier direction and they close the album with horror movie style keyboards.
EvilSpell plays an 80's style of first wave black and thrash metal ignoring all modern trends and creating an album that is very raw and heavy, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Heavy Metal themes.
In my opinion EvilSpell are a very great sounding mixture of black and thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Slut Of Satan" "Necropunk" "Speed Metal Evil" and "Necronomicon". 8 out of 10.
