-->--Title Track, Enter The Grave

Evile is a UK ThrashMetal band credited with kick-starting the [[GenreRelaunch second wave of Thrash Metal]] alongside MunicipalWaste. They recorded their first album ''Enter the Grave'' in 2007 with Flemming Rasmussen, the RecordProducer who produced [[Music/{{Metallica}} Metallica's]] second, third and fourth albums. With a well received first album and a song released on RockBand they hit a surge of popularity and released a more progressive second album, ''Infected Nations'', in 2009. [[TearJerker Tragedy struck]] when the bassist, Mike Alexander, died on tour leaving a girlfriend and kids to survive him. They've continued touring with a new bassist, and released a third album, ''Five Serpent's Teeth'', in 2011.

Their fourth album ''Skull'' dropped in late May of 2013. In August, Ol Drake left the band.

!!Evile presents examples of the following tropes:
* {{Adorkable}}: Both of the Drake brothers, especially with Matt.
* AlbumTitleDrop - All albums.
* AnswerSong - ''Five Serpent's Teeth'' is this to ''Now Demolition'', both making reference to {{The Demolished Man}}.
* BerserkButton - The general consensus for the fans of Evile is that they DO NOT like it when the band is being compared to either {{Metallica}} or {{Slayer}}.
** With that being said, it's an aversion with the band, more specifically with Matt Drake: they don't mind being compared to Metallica or Slayer, they're proud people make the comparison.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Poor Mike...
* BloodBath - "Bathe In Blood", natch. More specifically, the song is referring to Elizabeth Bathory's baths in blood in order to restore youth and the vanity such an act entails.
* [[OtherCommonMusicVideoConcepts Common Music Video Concepts]] - The garage rock version of the trope for "Thrasher"
* ContinuityNod: There is a riff played halfway into "Long Live New Flesh" that actually comes from "Russian Roulette", which appears in ''Hell Demo''.
** Downplayed with the bass intro to In Memoriam; it was used during sound check by Mike Alexander.
* CoverVersion - [[Music/{{Pantera}} "Cemetery Gates"]] (See {{Irony}}), [[Music/{{Metallica}} "Through The Never"]] and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} "Lounge Act"]] - for multiple Kerrang! Tribute Albums.
** Entombed's "Drowned" for Terrorizer Magazine
** Guitarist Ol Drake has even done heavy metal renditions of [[Music/{{Lady Gaga}} Lady Gaga's]] Born This Way and The Edge of Glory.
* DualMeaningChorus - "In Memoriam" but it's more of a Dual Meaning Song; justified that half of the band says that it was written in memory of Mike Alexander, the other half say its more a song about missing your loved ones.
* EpicRocking - "Man Against Machine", "We Who Are About to Die", "Genocide", "Metamorphosis", "Hundred Wrathful Deities" (At a staggering 11 minutes, 16 seconds), "Xaraya", "The Naked Sun", "Skull", "New Truths, Old Lies", "Tomb"
* EverythingsEvenWorseWithSharks - "Killer from the Deep"
* FadeOut: "Hundred Wrathful Deities", "Cult", "New Truths Old Lies"
* FadingIntoTheNextSong: Metamorphosis into Hundred Wrathful Deities.
* FanNickname: Due to a typo, Old Rake.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=_0lJgOpCT_Q#t=122s Now on a shirt!]]
* FilkSong[=/=]ShoutOut - [[{{Rambo}} "First Blood"]]
* GenreRelaunch - They had a large hand in the resurgence of ThrashMetal in the [[TurnOfTheMillennium mid 00's]], though they were by no means alone.
* GenreShift: "What You Become" is a straight groove metal song.
* {{Irony}} - The last song Evile recorded before Mike Alexander died? A cover of [[Music/{{Pantera}} "Cemetery Gates"]]
* GladiatorGames - "We Who Are About to Die", "Centurion"
* {{Gorn}} - "Enter The Grave"
* GutturalGrowler - Their cover of "Drowned". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JHum58R624 Considering how Matt Drake sings]], it's a bit of a change.
** Considered {{Narm}} by the older Drake when first tracking vocals.
* HarshVocals - Primarily ''Enter The Grave''.
* HeavyMeta - "Thrasher"
* KneelBeforeZod - In the chorus of "Thrasher".
* MadLibMetalLyrics - A bunch, but the majority come from ''Enter The Grave''
* ManOnFire - "Burned Alive"
* MetalScream - "Origin Of Oblivion", "Skull" and "Words of the Dead" as type 4. "Outsider" as a mix between Types 1 and 4.
* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness - Like most ThrashMetal, about an 8
** Songs on ''Infected Nations'' reach 7 or maybe 6, with "In Memoriam" and "Tomb" at about a 3.
** "Words Of the Dead" may be the closest thing the band has done to getting a rating of 9, beside the Drowned cover.
* NonAppearingTitle: "Xaraya", "In Memoriam", "Nosophoros", "Metamorphosis"
* OneManArmy - "FirstBlood." Justified in that [[ShoutOut its a song about]] {{Rambo}}
* OneOfUs - Most of the band, but mainly Matt and Ol Drake.
** As an example, the two have briefly argued on which is better, the SNES or the Megadrive.
** Admitted by Matt Drake in an interview, Ben Carter (drummer) is a fan of wrestling/WWE, Joel Graham (bassist) is a fan of Star Wars, Matt is a fan of science fiction in general and computer games, and Ol (lead guitarist) is a music nerd and an avid fan of WesternAnimation/SouthPark
* ThePlague - "Infected Nation"
* PunBasedTitle - Evile is a portmanteau of Evil and Vile
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: I AM THE OUTSIDER!!
* PutOnABus - Joel Graham. Admitted by Matt Drake in an interview, Evile had played a gig with his old band Ninedenine, and Graham himself used to be a drinking buddy with Mike Alexander. Come 2009, when Evile needed a bassist...
* ReligionRantSong - "Cult", Type 2, sung from the perspective of someone recruiting the listener.
* RobotWar - "Man Against Machine"
* RockBand - "Thrasher" was released for DLC. It is [[HarderThanHard quite a difficult]] song on guitar and bass.
** Ol Drake tracked ALL instruments for ALL the songs in ''Infected Nations'', which was then released on the Rock Band Network.
* SiblingTeam - Guitarist/Vocalist Matt Drake and Lead Guitar Ol Drake are brothers, until the latter left.
* SingingVoiceDissonance: Usually the case with british vocalists.
* TankGoodness - "Armoured Assault"
* TitleOnlyChorus - "Long Live New Flesh", "Now Demolition", "Plague To End All Plagues", "Devoid Of Thought", "Burned Alive", "Bathe In Blood"
* UncommonTime - Since the second album was more progressive, the songs on ''Infected Nations'' do this sometimes.
** This could be applied to select songs on Skull.
* UnpluggedVersion - An acoustic version of "In Memoriam" is included on the "Cult" single.
* XMeetsY - ''Enter The Grave'' is seen as {{Metallica}} meets {{Slayer}} meets {{Sepultura}} and a bunch of others.
** ''Infected Nations'' has a similar comparison (Metallica meets Sepultura) but now with a much more darker and slower feel to it.
** ''Five Serpent's Teeth'' = ''Enter The Grave'' + ''Infected Nations'' + melody and catchiness
** ''Skull'' is ''Five Serpent's Teeth'', if it were faster and had the same atmosphere as ''Infected Nations''.
