It would be unjust to label this band as simply a "rip-off" of Metallica. In fact, I daresay that the musicianship of Evile exceeds that of Metallica, as do the vocals. But this is just subjective. What can't be denied is that this is a blistering, balls-to-the-wall thrash album. Skull showcases crushing riffs, prominent bass, and rapid-fire drumming. This album is both heavy in speed and tone, but also contains driving melody and the rip-roaring solos that we've all come to expect from any thrash masterpiece. Evile is a band that is well worth checking out for any metalhead; it sounds like a Metallica/Slayer hybrid with their own unique sound on top of that. Thrash is back, and it's never sounded better

The album skull is exceptional musically, I'm amazed that's it's better than five serpent's teeth because that was a instant thrash classic! The writing in this album has improved, it's lyric are less simple and are easily up there with like of Metallica, Megadeth and slayer in terms of lyrical greats of thrash. This album is an instant classic, sounds like it's been pull right out of the 80's thrash metal movement! Great album and a must buy!
