bcb723 Great intimidating thrash from Japan. The initial drum solo into the main riff of "The Cycle of Pain" put a huge smile on my face. Then it's like - oh wait this is the album intro?! When 2nd track "Yaksa" hits, this album of blackened thrash takes off like a train off the rails until the last note. I would have said "like a Crazy Train" but that would be too fucking ridiculous and easy... you get the idea. Favorite track: 般若波羅蜜多 Paramount Evil.

Nuclear War Now! is proud to announce its continued allegiance with Evil (Jpn) in releasing the band’s second album, “Possessed by Evil.” As previously demonstrated on the 2017 debut, “Rites of Evil,” as well as the demo, two live recordings, and split with Siege Column that have since emerged, these twelve tracks of black/thrash metal once again capture the darkness of first wave black metal and unite it with the aggressive precision of early Teutonic thrash. Previous points of comparison between Evil and early Sodom continue to hold true, as do those that recognize similarities with the most notorious of Japanese hardcore outfits, especially insofar as the unhinged vocal delivery is concerned. Evil is anything but apologetic in its reverence to its metal heritage, which is what lends its recordings such a high degree of authenticity. “Possessed by Evil” is an unabashed conglomerate of riffs, accentuated by incisive leads and rabidly barked vocals. If there is one notable contrast with the debut album, it would be an increased cohesiveness among the instruments. Whereas “Rites of Evil” at times felt a bit loose, the performances on this album are characterized by noticeably tighter synchronicity, which one could logically assume to be the result of the band’s greater longevity. In any case, the outcome is one that represents a step forward from an already impressive debut and one that confirms Evil among the best of its black/thrash metal contemporaries.
