    This is true :worship:

    BTW, did anyone notice how close Tomb's solo sounds to November Rain's first solo ?

    I didn't specifically think 'November Rain' when I heard it - but I did think it was Slash-esque, yeah.

    A bit off topic from this thread of tuna, but Skull is now my favourite Evile album

    There is no way Words of the Dead isn't about Evil Dead. No way.

    I found the pages cold

    Summoning spirits old

    I read the blood scrolls
    Time has left behind
    I wanted to bring them back
    But to consequence I’m blind

    Speak the words of the dead
    Speak with me
    Words of the dead...

    That's pretty convincing, actually... :eek:

    I was giving it a listen today whilst wallowing in self-pity and sneezing/coughing/puking/passing out everywhere. It's become an album that operates spendidly as an exhibition as to how you should (and shouldn't) write no thrills thrash metal nowadays. Music is like game design to an extent, or even a standard storyboard in the way it should be put together and delivered to the consumer and Skull seems to have great examples of both things that really don't work with this sort of music and what works really, really fucking well in terms of the way things are arranged. You can take the songs apart and lay out the individual sections like pieces of a jigsaw, then... well, to repeat myself, you can point to what works well together and which pieces should be thrown away. That said, maybe I'm just fucking autistic or something :lol:

    Still struggling to get into it fully though :(

    I finally got my copy!! And I'm very glad to say that I disagree with those who don't like it very much. I absolutely love it, can't stop listening to it. Tomb might be the best song Evile has ever created, the MUST make a music video out of it. The riffs in the song Skull are amazing, I can see them headbanging hard while playing the riff after the line "Skull awaits your soul". It was worth the wait for it to get to Mexico, unfortunately I don't have the "Sinister Call" track. Very happy with this release.

    Different strokes, man. I know how a lot of folks in Mexico love this sort of thrash, I think it's a regional sorta thing

    I still think the album is very good but differs very much from the stuff Evile released before. There are really songs that I like like the title track, Underworld, Tomb and the Naked Sun but I don't know.. I believe I just have to listen to that album more intense to come to a final conclusion. I think I miss the diversity from the last album the most.

    Lack of diversity in thrash is nothing new, particularly nowadays. But I do agree.

    It might be just me, but the main riff in What You Become reminds me of Cure by Metallica

    I probably should've brought this up, has anyone got a chance to take a listen at the alternate solos for Outsider, WOTD and Tomb?
