Age Of Evil  - Get Dead (EP (Maxi))

Age Of Evil : Youth Gone Wild!!



From Scottsdale Arizona, the band Age Of Evil just released their latest album. A six-song EP entitled “Get Dead” who follows their first effort "Living A Sick Dream".

The group was formed in 2005 by two pairs of brothers. Jeremy and Jacob Goldberg (guitar and vocals for the first, bass guitar for the second) and brothers Jordan and Garrett Ziff (Lead guitar and drums). Barely out of adolescence, this group can already share the stage with veterans of metal without fear.

The new album offers six devilish titles: Cruel Intentions and Get Dead, two new pieces. Eye For An Eye and Glimpse Of Light, two songs recorded live from their first album. Also, the group performs two cover versions "Slave To The Grind" by Skid Row and The Helion / Electric Eye "by Judas Priest.

Whether the songs are live or studio, the band is a heavy metal machine. Jordan Ziff Prowess on guitar are breathtaking. Song after song he displayed a flawless technique and the execution is set to a quarter turn. Garrett Ziff for his part plays the drum in a ferocious pace relentlessly. He uses its 2 bass drums with precision and fury. Jacob Goldberg hammers his bass with the same dementia that Garrett Ziff beat the drum giving us a background rhythm quite delicious. For his part, Jeremy Goldberg's sings the lyrics with confidence despite his young age (19 years old)

As for the production, the album sounds good. From the recording process to its final mix, everything is well polished. We can fully enjoy every sound, every little subtle change in a effortless listening experience.

The original songs are good. well structured, enjoyable and makes you want to do the "devil horn" The live cuts are equally good. The cover songs are surprising. Of course, singing Rob Halford stuff is not easy, but Jeremy Goldberg is doing relatively well.

Age Of Evil breaks the mold of many new metal bands being influenced by a multitude of genres. Sometimes thrash, sometimes traditional metal, the group has deep and diverse roots which makes them a group not only original but also very complete.

Moreover, you need to watch on youtube.com their interpretation of Whitesnake "Still Of The Night" to realize that these young metallers not only does not deny the past of metal, but knows how to draw the essence of it and use it with panache.

Their mindset combine with hard work and especially their incredible talent, Age Of Evil is a group that is heading toward a bright future.

With this album, no doubt that we are entering into the Age Of Evil!

The plus:

- Originality of the group
- Quality of the songs
- Flawless execution

The minus:

- Jeremy Goldberg's voice still sounds young (he's only 19 years old that will pass ;) )
- The live tracks could have been enhanced with a drum solo or guitar.
- The group should have included their version of Whitesnake "Still Of The Night"
