Live Evil are a band from the Czech Republic that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of electronic music and gothic metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Black Tracks" which was released by MetalGate Productions.
Electro industrial sounds start off the album and also starts mixing in with more of a heavy and symphonic sound a few seconds later that also utilizes a great amount of melody and the solos and leads also stick to a melodic musical direction and a few seconds goth style vocals make their presence known on the recording.
At time s the vocals start throwing in aggressive shouts along with female vocals being added into the music at times and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and you can also hear elements of modern metal in the bands musical style and some songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word samples and at times elements of death and black metal can also be heard along with a brief use of high pitched screams. and a later track brings in melodic guitar leads.
Live Evil creates another recording that takes electro industrial and mixes it in with an extreme form of goth metal to create a very heavy yet melodic album, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and sci fi orientated themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Live Evil and if you are a fan of industrial and goth metal, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Amper" "Midnight Bay" and "We Stand Alone". 8 out of 10.
