Evile are a Thrash Metal outfit from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire in the UK. Founded by old school friends Matt Drake and Ben Carter, and after playing with different guitarists and bass players for a year or so, Matt's brother Ol was asked to join as lead guitarist.
After a short search for a bass player The 3 were contacted by Mike Alexander (whop sadly passed away in 2009) via an ad in a local guitar shop, and the band was formed.
With every member contributing to every aspect of the band they have a uniqueness and strength which gives them a cutting edge, influenced by bands such as Sepultura, Exodus, Metallica, Annihilator and Slayer to name but a few, Evile have created something that the metal world is crying out for.
Swedish heavy metal band Wolf was founded by Niklas Stålvind in 1995. Together with two like minded metalheads, that didn’t find much of interest in the music scene of the nineties, he formed a power trio that didn’t give shit about the flavour of today. This was a band that was about classic heavy metal, deeply rooted in the NWOBHM era. ”We just wanted to play the same music we listened to. You know, make albums we would like to buy ourselves, it was as simple as that”, comments Niklas Stålvind.
