Evil - Evil's Message (Rave-On Records) 1984

I almost shit myself last weekend when I found this record in a used bin for $2.00. I knew rumor had it that King Diamond himself played guitar on this record, but after some investigating I believe that this rumor is definitely unfounded. Hell, this ep is great on it's own merit  and certainly doesn't need the King to help make it more appealing,

What you get from Evil is a powerful style of Euro-metal with plenty of nwobhm  influence. The production is top notch, the riffs slay and there is even some Iron Maiden hidden away in some of the guitar work. So don't let the cover art fool you, these Danes kick some serious ass...great record..Dave G.
