Feed Me Violence

Rated 4.18/5 (83.64%) (11 Votes)

You must know by now that the Evil Invaders' name was taken from a Razor album, so the worship of 80s Speed Metal is strong with these guys. Feeding again on bullet belts, old-school elements and ridiculously fast instrumentals, the Belgian boys are back to attack with Feed Me Violence.

Right from the first song, "Mental Penitentiary", it becomes clear that the sophomore effort far surpasses its predecessor without losing any of the (not so) unique elements that made Evil Invaders a band to keep an eye on. Vicious guitar lines by Jöe Anus and debuting band member Max Mayhem are overflowing and wholesome, the drumming work by Senne Jacobs is absolutely crazy and the bass lines by Joeri van de Schoot eat their way into your stereo like termites in an old wooden closet. The song itself feels like the guys from Destruction snorted 100 pounds of cocaine and went straight into the recording studio; it's calamitously fun.

The fast-paced tempo dictates the rhythm of the album almost entirely. Tracks like "Feed Me Violence" and "Oblivion" are tailor-made for mosh pits, while the more versatile "As Life Slowly Fades" bets on virtuous guitar solos and thrashier parts like the main verse. The solos on the whole record are one of the best features here, being prolific, respectable and even goddamn awesome at times.

Feed Me Violence does feed you violence, there's no better way to put it. It smothers you into a hurricane of aggressive moments, cataclysmic drumming and maniac singing, all while giving you some split seconds to grasp some air in between. Tearing tears of joy from that old geezer who always tells you that the 80s were the best era for metal, Evil Invaders do no wrong in their proposal of paying homage to the Ravens, Razors and Exciters out there.
