EVOKEN To Enter Studio This Weekend

Lyndhurst, New Jersey-based doom/death metal act EVOKEN has issued the following update:

"We have just completed our version of 'Yet the Watchers Guard' for the upcoming THERGOTHON tribute on Solitude Productions. We think it is a respectable and authentic tribute to the kings of Lovecraftian DOOM!!!!! We will also be entering the studio this weekend to begin recording a four-song (three songs plus an outro) split CD with Swedish heavyweights BENEATH THE FROZEN SOIL. This will be released by I Hate Records. Details are still mostly unclear as of this moment. However, more will be posted as soon as [we] receive it....including the titles, time lengths, release date as well as other important news."

EVOKEN's latest CD, "A Caress of the Void", was released last year via Sweden's I Hate Records. The seven-song effort contains around 62 minutes of music and features artwork by dark mastermind Valentin Mellstrom.

According to a press release, "EVOKEN are, together with THEROTHON, WINTER and DISEMBOWELMENT, the originators of the doom/deaths cene, a scene we have hithertho never ventured into. The reason is simple, we haven't found bands genuine enough to work with. With EVOKEN it's different, they are able to conjure truly nightmarish visions of abysmal depths in Lovecraftian fashion like no other band, without ever falling prey to contrived 'gothmospheric' sobbing or teen-angst-ridden nonsense."
