Belgian thrashers Evil Invaders unleash hell with their latest release Surge of Insanity a live album recorded in their hometown Antwerp in 2018, along with a DVD. It rips along at a million miles an hour from the opening intro to the last reverb of the outro “Shades of Solitude”.

Jam-packed full of hits from their first EP to the latest release Feed Me Violence and you can feel the energy from these guys just oozing through the speakers as the tear it up with their own unique blend of thrash and heavy metal. At times they sound like early Kreator only to switch it up and sound like Judas Priest or Iron Maiden on speed. There is absolutely no doubt they are an extremely talented and technical bunch, thrash metal with savage riffs and solos that will astound you as they knock out hit after hit in a frenzy. Tracks like “As Life Slowly Fades”, “Raising Hell” and “Victims of Sacrifice” from their EPs sound as good if not better than some of the newer ones but the likes of “Pulses of Pleasures”, “Shot to Paradise” and “Broken Dreams in Isolation” showcase exactly where they are going with future releases.

“Feed Me Violence” just melts you face with the sheer speed and power with vocals ranging from screamed to guttural and everything in between while “Stairway To Insanity” and “Master Of Illusion” have a real Maiden feel with riffs that would not be out o place on any of their albums but done at a hundred miles an hour. Tracks like “Oblivion” are why mosh pits were invented, so you can go fucking mental with every other lunatic and when the song finishes you will feel like you have staggered out of one, simply amazing. They even have time to throw in a Venom cover “Witching Hour” or good measure.

As live albums go this is one of the best around, the absolute energy given from the band lends to a completely immersive experience and you can only give them 100% for the effort.
