The band name is your first clue as to what kind of music to expect from Germany's Blackevil and the title of their second album, Forever Baptised in Eternal Fire, should have you thinking black/thrash all the way. Musically, Blackevil play dirty, fast metal with vocals approaching the chaos of some true black vocalists yet maintaining a connection to the music, kind of like if Cirith Ungol's Tim Baker sang for a black metal band. There's a bit more atmosphere on Forever Batptised in Eternal Fire as Blackevil moderate the tempo and give the vocals more focus which both intensify the creepy factor. Their efforts culminate in the nearly nine-minute closing track "1943" which is their darkest and moodiest composition and is really an attention grabber. There is still plenty of balls-out speed and chainsaw riffing, so don't worry that this album somehow skimps on the "thrash" even as it leans a little bit more toward the "black." Blackevil have taken the tried-and-true black/thrash formula and given it just enough character to make Forever Baptised in Eternal Fire an album fans of the genre should definitely check out.
