Possessed by Evil

Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)

Possessed by Evil is the second album of absolutely savage black/thrash from Japan's Evil. As on their debut, the songs on Possessed by Evil combine the sharp riffing of thrash with the manic aggression of black vocals and Evil whips every song into a tornado of metallic fury. Many of the twelve tracks are short, go-for-the-throat cuts that go by in a blur (and enjoyable blur) but there are a few longer songs that stick around for a while, especially "Raizin" which has a chorus the band pounds into your head with a hammer. I don't think this one is quite as good as the first album, but if you like your black/thrash or metal in general fast, furious and blasphemous, this Japanese band has you covered.
