My Kingdom Music's press release describes Eversin, somewhat inaccurately, as a mixture of Megadeth, Iced Earth, Annihilator, Nevermore and Symphony X. That is not to say the band isn't unique, they are, just in other directions. Eversin is Progressive Metal with elements of Power, Thrash, Heavy and Gothic Metal in the brew. They explore all those subgenres on their debut release, Divina Distopia. The overall darkness that overlays the music makes me think that some crossover into more extreme styles is likely in the future.
Once known as Fuoco Fauto, Eversin's motto should be "expect the unexpected." They use almost everything metal to create their interesting sound. Most metalheads should be able to find something they like in the majority of the music on Divina Distopia. Eversin is a weird, rebellious band that clearly doesn't follow the rules. There is no black or white, only gray.
Singer Angelo Ferrante gives a solid performance despite a massive Italian accent. The rest of the core musicians are professionals who turn out ample melodies and verses. With the addition of some session players, the line-up, as a whole, enabled Eversin to turn out a good debut for the label, My Kingdom Music.
With the incorporation of elements from other subgenres, Eversin are able to create drama and suspense on Divina Distopia, even if the lyrics are hard to catch. It is easy to pick up the themes of the songs. Tracks like "Suddenly," "In the Shadow of the Rose," and "Angel of Silence" all seem to tell a story of something missing, something only the members of Eversin knew when they wrote the lyrics. That is what makes the gray, shapeless entity known as Divina Distopia such a mystery, albeit a compelling and, overall, well made one.
