Description

Reissue of the classic US funeral doom album from Evoken - now on Peaceville with bonus tracks. Evoken is a funeral doom metal band from New Jersey USA. The bands style draws comparisons to acts such as early My Dying Bride and also Finnish band Thergothon. The name Evoken was even taken from an old Thergothon demo track. The band was founded by guitarist Nick Orlando under the name Funereus in April 1992 and along with Rob (Bass/Vocals), Phil (Guitar), and Vince (Drums), they recorded what would be the only Funereus release, a rehearsal demo. The band eventually changed to Evoken in 1994 after several line-up changes. 'Quietus' was Evoken's second full-length studio album. It was originally released in 2001 and was recorded at WAVE Studios in New York during October and November of 1999. Evoken have become known for their thick walls of apocalyptic guitar on long epic tracks featuring strong, dark atmospherics, with 'Quietus' being a classic example of funeral doom metal honed to perfection, becoming a cult hit with fans worldwide. This edition of 'Quietus' includes the extremely rare 1992 rehearsal recording from when the band was known as Funereus , the song having never been recorded for any official release. Also included is another rare track, an instrumental originally from 2004. Evoken continues to be active, and will be playing the well-known Dutch Roadburn festival in 2011, as well as more live work and studio material to come in future.
