Prime Evil - Evilution EP Review

Prime Evil: Evilution EP

Thrash/Speed Metal
2.5/5.0

Maybe some things should remain in the underground, buried in history and legend. First impressions. Prime Evil was an obscure underground NYC thrash metal band recording, mostly demos, and performing around the late Eighties and early Nineties. These early recordings were immortalized in 2002 in a compilation CD, appropriately titled, Unearthed on Battlezone Records. Since then the band has resurfaced and recorded Evilution, a three song EP, on Inferno Records.

Prime Evil: not the happy bunch.

Here's the skinny on Prime Evil: old school speed and thrash metal with raw, nearly death-like, vocals. It's rather rapid fire, rough and tumble, material with lively, if not somewhat discordant, guitar licks. Generally, it will pass for old school thrash. I'm sure fans who remember them, if they're still around, will find this EP entirely too short. They may even wonder if the band can enter a new era with such a slim offering. But with the dubious accessibility of Prime Evil's earlier work, this is the best they'll get.






In Short

NYC underground metal band Prime Evil resurfaces with Evilution, a short three song EP of passable old school thrash metal.

It's Only Rock n Roll

My childhood was safe and sane. No abuse and no traumas. I was surrounded by a large and loving family who taught me the importance of hard work and a meaningful education.

Lyrically I like to use themes that make the listener use his or her imagination, and to give a little of the lessons I've learned in my own life.
