Following the release of their sophomore album, "Powerkiller", Canadian heavy metal heroes EVIL SURVIVES strike back with another entry in the Heavy Artillery Records discography with a reissue of their debut, "Metal Vengeance", on March 22. Available for the first time ever on CD and digital formats, the effort was originally released by renowned Canadian vinyl-only metal label War On Music.
Based out Winnipeg, Manitoba, EVIL SURVIVES first began spreading itds metallic mayhem when the in the summer of 2006. Frontman Karl "Axe n' Smash" Warkentin and guitarist Adrian Riff began the arduous task of recruiting like-minded metal heads. Finally, after three months, the search was complete and EVIL SURVIVES was born. By June 2008 EVIL SURVIVES played its first show — by no coincidence...but fate! — outside an IRON MAIDEN concert in its hometown of Winnipeg. Less than a month later, EVIL SURVIVES entered the studio to record its debut full-length album, "Metal Vengeance", released exclusively on vinyl by the Canadian War on Music label.
On the heels of a growing renown, EVIL SURVIVES was right back in studio by the end of 2009 to record its second full-length album, entitled "Powerkiller", released by War on Music on vinyl and limited-edition cassette. Mixed entirely in analog, the master reels contained over 40 minutes of driving NWOBHM worship, sounding like 1985-2009 never even happened.
Touring non-stop across Canada and beyond, EVIL SURVIVES quickly gained a reputation as a ripping live act, with piercing croons, guitar heroics, shotgun bass, and wild antics. Taking the torch from those who came before them, EVIL SURVIVES is positioned to become a leading force for the fight for the rightful return of heavy metal… and the execution of false metal everywhere.
