Evoken - To Enter Studio This Weekend

Evoken have issued the following update:

"It has been quite a awhile since the last update so without further hesitation, I give you the latest news regarding Evoken.

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 4 song (3 songs/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 I receive it... including the titles, time lengths, release date as well as other important news. So check back here as it will be updated soon."

In a further blog comment, Evoken further revealed: "All but one track is new. We will be redoing "Omniscient" from the 2002 promo. It was actually recorded for the 2005 album "Antithesis Of Light" but was scraped at the last minute due to time restrictions on a single CD."

Evoken - New Keyboard Player

Guitarist Nick Orlando from US Funeral Doom band Evoken has updated their MySpace page with the following blog:

"Greetings, everybody....Hope your Thanksgiving was good and the gravy was flowing fast & free!!! Anyway, on to the important news.....

First and foremost, we would like to introduce & welcome our new keyboard player into the fold, Don Zaros. He is a very talented musician with a lot of knowledge regarding this type of music...which is exactly what we were looking for. Evoken has started practicing again as a full band (finally) after a lengthy layoff and initial rehearsals have been very promising.

Secondly, the new Evoken album has arrived, so we will be able to take care of all orders from here on out. Apologies to all those who've emailed me the last 1-2 weeks and were turned away, I just didn't want to start taking pre-orders and have something else go wrong (knowing the luck this band usually has). Now they are in my hands, so all is well.

I will update the merchandise page, as that is were all the rest of the info is anyway

Ok, you may now resume your Triptophane stupors !!!!! Dark Regards"

We are very excited about the future of Evoken, with many things planned for the future. So Evoken are now a complete line-up once again as: John Paradiso-Guitars/Vocals, Nick Orlando-Guitars and Clean Guitars, Craig Pillard-Bassist, Denny Hahn-Keyboards, and Vince Verkay-Drums.

Evoken - Recordings Complete

"NYC's doomsters EVOKEN have also completed the recordings of their new album, to come in 2005.

The album is now tentatively titled "The Last of Vitality" (might change !)

We also have an anticipation on the songs titles :

Mournful Refusal
Antithesis of Light
Darkness Visable
The Last of Vitality

We asked the guys to describe the album in words, and here it comes directly from their pen.... :

"This album will show more variety in structure and sound. Yet, will still keep its dark, heavy, and ominous overtone. This definitely has more structure, yet has subtle differences from previous work. Each song has a swelling and sweeping, darkened atmosphere that will be felt from opening track, to final note. 7 songs plus one intro will come together like a life ending story. The clean guitar sounds as if a distant tolling bell warns of an impending dying sun. The rest of the instruments will complete a sound that we will let the listener await. Some surprises will be found on this album that will show Evoken will continue to expand its sound, its song structure, and influences, while still committing to their doom laden foundation.
Nobody has heard a more cold, haunting, and livid Doom metal album until now""
