I don’t for the life of me know why the hell I let news about the new Evile record pass me by. I got the e-mails a while back and pushed them aside for some reason or another. It wasn’t until recently when I received a follow-up e-mail that I took notice that Evile had not only released the killer album artwork for their upcoming album Five Serpent’s Teeth, but they had also released a thrash-tastic new track. I personally think that the band has evolved quite a bit since Infected Nations.They seem to have grown as a band and I’m digging the sound of this new song, “Eternal Empire.” Vocalist/guitarist Matt Drake had this to say about the artwork for Five Serpent’s Teeth:
“So here it is, the artwork for Five Serpent’s Teeth. As is always the case with Evile, we try and do things a bit differently from what we’ve done before, so we fancied something a bit more design-orientated this time around. It’s been done by a great artist by the name of Gustavo Sazes and he really came through for us as we were struggling to find something that visually accompanied the music, so hats off to the man! Make what you will of any meaning you think the cover may hold, much the same as you will be able to do with the lyrical content of the album; we know what it means to us, so enjoy!”
And that’s that. Five Serpent’s Teeth comes out September 26th via Earache Records. Check out “Eternal Empire” after the jump. You can buy the song from iTunes for a buck. What do you think of the band’s new artwork and song? Comment, homie.
