Ah… Evildead, my favorite thrash band and movie as well. From the opening of the album you know you are in for a treat of thrash. It starts off with a sound clip taken from the movie where the band got its name. After that the riffs pound in your face like a battering ram. The man behind one of the axes is none other than former Agent Steel member, Juan Garcia. He knows how to write riffs and he shows it on this album. This album shows what thrash is all about, crushing riffs played lightning fast with vocals that are of a sort of shouted snarl. Phil Flores's vocals on this album are thrash perfect; aggressive, fast, but still clean enough to understand. If I had to describe his vocal style, it would be somewhat of Don Doty meets Sean Killian. Standout tracks include F.C.I./The Awakening, Future Shock, Gone Shooting, and the closer B.O.H.I.C.A.. B.O.H.I.C.A. stands for bend over here it comes again, showing these guys know how to have some humor in their album while still being more aggressive and faster than many other thrash bands are on some of their heaviest tracks. This is a must have for fans of thrash in the vein of Dark Angel and Vio-lence. Remember that THE BOOK OF THE DEAD IS NOT FOR THE LIVING TO SEE!!!
