Evile is a UK Thrash Metal band credited with kick-starting the second wave of Thrash Metal alongside Municipal Waste. They recorded their first album Enter the Grave in 2007 with Flemming Rasmussen, the Record Producer who produced Metallica's second, third and fourth albums. With a well received first album and a song released on Rock Band they hit a surge of popularity and released a more progressive second album, Infected Nations, in 2009. 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.
Guitarist Ol Drake has even done heavy metal renditions of Lady Gaga's Born This Way and The Edge of Glory.
Dual Meaning Chorus - "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.
Epic Rocking - "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"
One of Us - 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 South Park
Put on a Bus - 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...
Religion Rant Song - "Cult", Type 2, sung from the perspective of someone recruiting the listener.
