Robert Williams of Metal-Rules.com conducted an interview with Jason McMaster and Donnie Van Stavern of EVIL UNITED this past May at Encore Recordsduring the band’s record-release party for their self-titled debut album. You can now watch the chat below.
EVIL UNITED is the Austin/San Antonio, Texas-based band featuring Jason McMaster (WATCHTOWER, DANGEROUS TOYS, BROKEN TEETH) on vocals, a double guitar assault of T.C. Connally (PB/DC, CULT TO FOLLOW) and John Valenzuela (PB/DC, URIAL) as well as the brutal rhythm section of Don Van Stavern (RIOT, S.A. SLAYER) on bass and “Shakes” West (MURDERDOLLS, NEUROTICA, SEBASTIAN BACH) on drums.
Commented McMaster: “I think there are a lot of bands playing this type of metal right now, but I believe that EVIL UNITED has something different about it. There is a wide range of influence, lots of peaks and valleys to explore, without losing any of the extreme.
“It’s a pleasure to work with Texas metal alumni such as these guys; they shred but they are paying attention to the thrash and power as well as the melody.”
