EVILE Interviewed In Barcelona (Video)

Barbara Teruggi and Maite Ramis of Spain's GoetiaMetal.com conducted an interview with Ol Drake (guitar) and Ben Carter (drums) of British thrashers EVILE before their April 15 concert in Barcelona. You can now watch the chat below.

EVILE last month filmed a music video for the track "In Memoriam", which appears on the band's recently-released new album, "Five Serpent's Teeth".

The clip was shot on April 29 in the North of England with director Ben Thornley of Sitcom Soldiers (THRICE, THE BLACKOUT, DEAF HAVANA).

Commented EVILE lead guitarist Ol Drake: "The initial idea was to release the 'Cult' video, as we did, then immediately get onto recording the video for 'In Memoriam'; this was easier said than done. It's been well documented why the song exists. When it came to getting the 'right'/'appropriate' treatment for the video, it was a lengthy process. The song is so close to all of us that we wanted to make sure the video complemented the song and its subject matter, and that all four of us were happy with how the song will be portrayed visually. If we'd have settled on the first idea after 'Cult', we wouldn't have been happy, so amidst touring and gigging, we've been working hard on getting this 100% before we move on to the next video. The song is basically about loss, which we can all relate to, so we wanted to express that in the video, while staying respectful to why the song exists."

EVILE played "In Memoriam" live for the first time ever on February 11 at the HMV Ritz in Manchester, U.K. in memory of WOODS OF YPRES frontman David Gold, who tragically passed away on December 21.

EVILE's third full-length album, "Five Serpent's Teeth", sold around 680 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 35 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

EVILE's previous CD, "Infected Nations", opened with around 460 units to debut at No. 132 on the Heatseekers chart.

"Five Serpent's Teeth" was once again recorded with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, U.K. and was released in Europe on September 26 via Earache Records.
