Solid mix of old school and new school death metal for the masses
Evocation's "The Shadow Archetype" is a wonderful blend of both old school and new school death metal. Combining groove and Swedish melody, the music packs a really nice punch and has an underlying catchiness to it. The vocals are a good, deep growl with a bit of throatiness to them. They remind me a little bit of Amon Amarth with a bit of Obituary thrown in for good measure. I'm really impressed with this album for the fresh breath that it gives to death metal. This is another home run for death metal as far as I'm concerned. So if you like your metal beefy and full of vitriol, then you should definitely check out Evocation.
