Evoker are a band from Australia that plays an old school form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Evil Torment" which will be released in May by Blood Harvest.
Rain and thunder sounds start off the ep along with some heavy yet melodic riffing a few seconds later. Most of the music is also very heavily rooted in the early 90's era while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats as well as the vocals being mostly blackened metal screams,
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they also remain very true to an old school style while the music is also very heavily rooted in death metal. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the songs sounding like they could of easily been recorded and released more than 25 years ago and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Evoker plays a musical style that goes back to the early 90's era of black and death metal. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover darkness, death and evil themes.
In my opinion Evoker are a very great sounding old school blackened death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Old Evil" and "Sacrilicious Lust". 8 out of 10.
