Evoken is a funeral doom metal band from New Jersey USA, & were among the first wave of US doom/death bands, along with Novembers Doom. The band's style draws comparisons to acts such as early My Dying Bride & also Finnish band Thergothon - the name Evoken was even taken from an old Thergothon demo track. The band was founded by guitarist Nick Orlando under the name Funereus in April 1992 & along with Rob (Bass/Vocals); Phil (Guitar) & Vince (Drums), they recorded what would be the only Funereus release, a rehearsal demo. The band eventually changed to Evoken in 1994 after several line-up changes. Antithesis of Light, the band's third studio album, was recorded at Hermit Hole in New Jersey with Bumblefoot (of Guns N Roses fame). It was originally released in 2005 & continues with Evoken's trademark funeral doom sound; a thick wall of pounding guitar riffs, assisted by layers of keyboard effects to heighten the overall dark ambience of this doom /death metal classic. This edition of Antithesis of light contains an extra song from a promo demo from 2002 made on a 4-track recorder, which was never released & is extremely rare.
