Evilyn are an international band with members from the United States and Canada that plays a dissonant form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 ep "Inside Shells".
A very heavy and dissonant sound starts off the ep while the vocals also bring in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in a great amount of blast beats.
The songs also add in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also brings in influences form both the old school and modern eras. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to a dissonant style along with the riffs also adding in some melodies at times. the vocals also have their guttural moments as well as all of the music also sticking to a heavier direction.
Evilyn plays a musical style that takes old school death metal and mixes it in with some black metal and dissonant elements to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Evilyn are a very great sounding dissonant blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spires" and "Embers Burn". 8 out of 10.
