Cyanide Presents: Evile, Strike Offensive, Edge of Ruin…
Evile is a thrash metal outfit from Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England formed in 2004.
In October of 2006 Evile signed to Earache Records, label home of well-known metal bands such as Morbid Angel, Napalm Death, Municipal Waste and Carcass.
Each band member has grown up with varying musical influences surrounding them and wanted to start up a band which played some of their favourite 80’s thrash songs. founded by old school friends Matt Drake and Ben Carter, and after playing with different guitarists and bass players for a year or so, they asked Matt’s brother Ol Drake to join as lead guitarist, and after a short search for a bass player they were contacted by Mike Alexander via an ad in a local guitar shop, and Evile was formed.
They are influenced by bands such as Sepultura, Exodus, Metallica, Annihilator and Slayer to name a few. Despite being un-signed at the time, Evile were hand-picked to headline the second stage of Bloodstock Open Air 06, and also to open the main stage of Manchester’s own Damnation Festival.
Since starting out in 2008, Strike Offensive may have had a rocky road, but we’re now back and stronger than ever. With a newly formed line up, the trio has become a four piece with an ear for all things fast and furious.
Mixing up all things thrash in a rusty pot, Strike have a loyal following and are ready for more people to join the revolution of all things ‘Trioxic’.
Available for gigs in Reading, London and surrounding areas in the south from Jan 2015.
Watch out folks, a ‘Doomstorm’ is brewing…
