Inspired by the old Metal of Death of a golden era when men ruled with powerful riffs, crushing drums, and assassin guitar solos alongside agonizing and obscure vocalizations, EVIL DAMN bring back the old pestilence of true DEATH METAL from the depths of the underground, giving form to cruel and chaotic chants of desolation and misfortune that frame lyrics inspired by the old death cult and the Lovecraftian pantheon of atrocity!

Hailing from Lima, Peru, EVIL DAMN was formed in the year 2004 when veteran musicians like Mario Romanet (PSICORRAGIA), Ordep and Zemog (DISINTER), and Neyra and Satyricon (GOAT SEMEN) decided to give shape to this abomination. A few months later, they released their hailed Through Black Abysses demo, which made a big impact in their national scene.

Some years in sepulchral silence passed as EVIL DAMN started to compose the damnations which now comprise their LONG-awaited debut album, Necronomicon. Conceived during the last years previous to the worldwide pest and finally committed to studio tape during 2019 and 2020, Necronomicon introduces promising drum-crusher D. Porturas, and the band around him duly deliver a riot of violence that can only come from Peru. This is 100% uncut South American madness, rendered in robustly clear-yet-crushing form: brutality, darkness, and chaos colliding head-on and drowning the listener in an epic descent of diabolical evil. Not for nothing are they monikered EVIL DAMN, and Necronomicon proves, without a doubt, that whether this album was delivered in 1991 or 2021, evil metal will ALWAYS be eternal!

Review

...Evil Damn can still claim to have crafted a perfectly balanced interpretation of pre-1990 extreme metal, both enriched by occult aesthetics yet replete with well crafted musical architecture. They do just enough in terms of idiosyncratic guitar leads, monstrous vocal play, and occult weirdness (especially on the lengthy title track) to make ‘Necronomicon’ standout from the pack as far as unapologetically retro metal goes. - 3/5
