Hong Kong black death metal band Evocation have released a drum cam live video from a recent appearance at Yoga Kun International Music Festival in Guiyang, China. The track 越空復仇 comes off their last full length 天靈靈 地靈靈 released 4 years ago (streaming below). The album is a phenomenal collection of 9 tracks documenting one of the strongest metal bands to come out of Hong Kong, and marks immense growth from the band’s debut full length Take Your Soul (2008). Evocation has been busy on the final touches of their brand new HIGHLY anticipated full length to be released hopefully by year’s end.
If there are any labels out there interested in black metal inspired death metal, we STRONGLY encourage you to check out this band. The music they create is some of the most original metal we’ve heard in years with their seamless use of Eastern instrumentation and ambient soundscapes to enhance the brutal nature of their music and a sense of impending doom. The band’s lyrical content is influenced by their interest in Taoist and Buddhist faiths, and blend with it a stark image of a downward spiralling Hong Kong.
This band ain’t no joke.
The pride of Hong Kong’s underground.
