YMMV: Evile
  • Crowning Music of Awesome - "Thrasher"
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: During a studio recording session, the band decides to try autotune. The results are hilariously butchered cover renditions of Cher's "Believe" and Rebecca Black's "Friday", complete with an improvised love song as sung by Matt. (Note that this all happens around the 3:56 minute mark.)
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming
    • After the Tear Jerker that was Mike Alexander's death, Evile and friends of the band set up a charity to help Mike's girlfriend and kids and two promote it did two benefit concerts composed of covers of Mike's favorite songs.
    • It goes even further with In Memoriam; the opening bassline is what Alexander plays during soundcheck, while in the video the band decides to hang up some of Mike's basses in his memory.
  • Face of the Band: The Drake Brothers, though now it's just Matt, as Ol left in August 2013.
  • Growing the Beard: Enter the Grave was straight retro thrash, while Infected Nations was a well-meaning if misguided attempt to modernize their sound and throw off the retro tag; by contrast, Five Serpents Teeth is a far more mature and well-realized attempt at coming into their own.
  • Song Association - The appearance of "Thrasher" on Rock Band probably didn't hurt their popularity.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks
    • -Evile's detractors tend to note that the band sounds very similar to Slayer.
    • With the release of Five Serpent's Teeth, and the release of their music video for "In Memoriam" they've also earned comparisons to Metallica. Doesn't help either that they also covered "Through The Never" on a Kerrang! covers album.
