Force of Evil
Force of Evil (Escapi)

By: Mike SOS

Force of Evil's twin guitar attack should sound familiar for those in the metal know, as the fretwork of Hank Shermann and Michael Denner, most notably of Mercyful Fate, is prominently displayed on Force of Evil's debut. Rounded out by members of King Diamond's band and Ironfire, this Danish metal supergroup play the kind of metal that James and Lars of Metallica cut their teeth on back in the early 1980's combined with elements of dramatic rock a la Fates Warning and Queensryche. The end result is an 11-track metal opus that old school metal fans will no doubt appreciate, as songs such as the driving "Samhain" and the scorching "Demonized" have the undeniable classic metal crunch. Coupled with lyrics that touch on the demons, the occult, and for the most part, the darker side of life, Force of Evil's debut is a pleasant retread to the days of metal yore.
