5.0 out of 5 stars Evile Strikes Again!,
This albums proves that not only Thrash metal is thriving and growing recently but also proves that Evile are the most consistent and productive bands out there. Not only can they write extremely powerful songs with blistering drums and thunderous bass but also deliver riffs that aren't recycled and are strangely unique among what some might consider a repetitive genre. The solo's are killer Ol Drake has completely change the meaning of the two words guitar solo. Normally i would pick out standout tracks with a album such as this but all of them are a must and it would be criminal not to include them in future live set list. But with the announcement of this new album I couldn't help but think how are they going to surpass or even match Five Serpents Teeth which all ten tracks are standout. But Skull has just done that and it takes a special band to do that.
With the arrival of a new Megadeth album which is extremely hit or miss in my opinion spend your hard earn cash wisely and get this instead.
4.0 out of 5 stars The real Expressway to yr Skull,
The thrash metal revival continues apace with Skull. Using And Justice For All as a template is a good place to start. What a relief it is to have a vocalist who can actually sing. So many metal groups who may have awesome riffs are let down by weak vocalists (usually high pitched yelping or growling). but not here. Combined with some tight guitar work and fantastic drumming it's the perfect antidote for the aberration that was nu metal. The opener Underworld and closer New Truths Old Lies are highlights. It's just a pity the closing track fades out just as a crescendo of guitars kicks in. The only downside for me are cheesy clichéd metal lyrics on a couple of songs and a relatively short song list of nine tracks.
5.0 out of 5 stars From strength to strength...,
Achieving what seemed impossible by equalling if not bettering Five Serpents'Teeth, Evile produce another classic thrash album. 'Underworld' and 'The Naked Sun' are instant classics. One of the few modern metal bands that are making good music at the moment, IMHO :)
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Album,
This review is from: Skull (MP3 Download)
One of the best from Evile, gets the blood pumping. Great to hear a proper British singing voice again from a band that're as energetic and thrashy as, dare I say Slayer? :-D
5.0 out of 5 stars Another top album!,
This is the 4th album from Evile and its another cracker! continuing on from Five Serpents Teeth this is another excellent thrash album showing how talented the band is and how they are now at the forefront of the thrash scene! buy it!
4.0 out of 5 stars It's pretty good,
Evile's new album is a blister rapid no hold barred thrashfest with blistering riffs and rumbling gut emptying bass and well thrashy drums. Every thing whips buy and you bang your head. Tis ok but it is not quite a rememberable as some of the previous albums. But it is faster and thrashier than the last album it just needs a few more memorable riffs because that's it's only let down. There are some very good memorable riffs it just needs a few more other than that it is flippin brilliant. Not quite as classic as say older thrash metal albums but then it is a classic compared to ones that are being released now. Can't really go wrong you must get it if you are a thrash metal fan

5.0 out of 5 stars Always improving,
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!
