Evile_thmbWith the daunting prospect of album number three being the recording that brought Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax worldwide fame and fortune back in the thrash heyday of the Eighties, will next gen UK thrashers Evile have what it takes to deliver that leap of faith with their new album 'Five Serpent's Teeth'?  Jim Rowland is the man with the backwards baseball cap, Hi-Tec bumpers, and all the answers.
