Couldn't agree with you more, evile are NOT doing anything new and arguably they are not the best at doing it. I mainly posted them because I thought
maybe it would give you something new to listen to in the same vein as music by bands that you are into. That and I'm not too knowledgeable in the
area of thrash, case in point, the most obscure thrash band I know of is Forced Entry ( whom I love). What did you think about that revocation play
through video I posted? No vocals in that version whatsoever, which brings me to
Deathy, growly vocals. Personally I usually take no issue with this style, its part and parcel of the specific brands of metal that I dig. That is NOT
to say I like all vocalists that employ it and there are a # ton of them that I feel can't pull it off to save their lives. In fact, sometimes I get
sick of hearing it my damn self lol.
But overall, it just WORKS. Take Fallujah; the guy is growly rawr rawr but what else could possibly compliment the instrumental components half so
well? In my vastly humble opinion the answer to that is this: Nothing! Its either got to be those vocals or no vocals at all.
Of course, your take on it is absolutely not unusual. I'm sure its the opinion of most people that its "garbage". And I get that, really. Honestly,
sometimes I wonder how and why I find it so palatable. Again, the best answer I can offer is that it simply fits. At least in the context that I'm
talking about. That, and I'm pretty conditioned to it to begin with.
Alas, no one has ever accused me of having good taste in music. I think black metal vocals are downright sexy ( lol!) And to most people listening to
that is akin to sticking a soldering iron into your ear, or any other orifice for that matter, so what do I know
