Melodic riff lords Evocatus today reveal the first taste of their forthcoming new album, with the excellent single Warriors Of The Sea .
Combining uplifting passages with relentless riffs, the song showcases Evocatus' masterful take on melodic death metal, no doubt set to drawing comparisons with their contemporaries Kreator, Amon Amarth and Arch Enemy. Stream the song above, or check it out below.
Warriors Of The Sea sets the scene perfectly for Evocatus' forthcoming full-length Path To Tartarus, the second album for the band boasting grand ambition and musicianship in equal measure.
Says the band about the new release, " Path to Tartarus is a melodic death metal collection of stories about ancient gods, bloody battles and a look into the mind of battle-hardened warriors. An epic crescendo to the final destination of Tartarus.
"The album consists of hectic riffs, blistering solos and crushing vocals whilst allowing for melodic harmonies and symphonic layers and interludes creating an immersive and rich atmosphere. A ten-song, sixty-three-minute journey that will leave you wanting more!”
Having shared the stage with the likes of Kalmah , Psycroptic and Cattle Decapitation (among others) Evocatus are yet another example of the explosion of quality melodic death metal roaring out from down under.
In Greek mythology, Tartarus is the deep abyss that is used as a dungeon of torment and suffering for the wicked and as the prison for the Titans.
You can be sure that this album is the soundtrack to that place.
