EVIL – “Evil’s Message” and “Ride To Hell” reissues out today

Today, From The Vaults proudly releases two titles that are part of the European heavy metal history.  The debut EP “Evil’s Message” and “Ride To Hell“, featuring the first demo and live recordings from 1985 of the seminal Danish band Evil, are a treat for everyone with a soft spot for heavy metal and cult releases. They’re both available in several vinyl formats, plus CD, with thematic t-shirts also on sale.

Evil is back and working on a new studio album to be released in late 2021.

1984…
The year of Iron Maiden’s ”Powerslave”. The year of Mercyful Fate’s ”Don’t Break The Oath”. And the year of Evil’s ”Evil’s Message”!

The Danish heavy metal cult EP classic fuelled with five tracks of powerful and speedy heavy metal are to be re-released in a very special package in 2021!

Remastered by Tue Madsen (The Haunted) in Antfarm Studio ”Evil’s Message” comes in three very limited edition vinyl formats in 180gr Teal (blue/green), yellow, and marble grey as well as on CD for the very first time. On top of this, the release comes with rare photos.

If you’re a fan of classic, head-banging, fist-pumping 80s heavy metal, then this is an absolute must-have in your collection!

And remember… Evil’s power is not to be taken lightly!

Line-up “Evil’s Message”:
Kim Xmas: guitar
Pearl Angel: vocals
Pete Hurricane: bass

From the same time & space as Mercyful Fate, EVIL put the Danish heavy metal in the worldwide map in the early 80’s, becoming one of the cult bands of the country.

“Ride To Hell” features the first demo tape from the band, released originally in 1983, as well as the live release “Live On Stage”, recorded in Copenhagen in 1985.

With sound completely remastered in Angioni Studio (Tygers Of Pan Tang, Mike Tramp), ”Ride To Hell” comes in four very limited ed. vinyl formats in 180gr (green, orange, purple & black) as well as on CD. On top of this, the release comes with restored artwork and rare photos.

And remember… Evil’s power is not to be taken lightly!
