EVILE‘s third full-length album, “Five Serpent’s Teeth”, sold around 680 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 35 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
EVILE‘s previous CD, “Infected Nations”, opened with around 460 units to debut at No. 132 on the Heatseekers chart.
“Five Serpent’s Teeth” was once again recorded with producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, U.K. and was released in Europe on September 26 via Earache Records.
Regarding the new album cover, EVILE vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matt Drake stated, “As is always the case with EVILE, we try and do things a bit differently from what we’ve done before, so we fancied something a bit more design-orientated this time around. It’s been done by a great artist by the name of Gustavo Sazes and he really came through for us as we were struggling to find something that visually accompanied the music, so hats off to the man! Make what you will of any meaning you think the cover may hold, much the same as you will be able to do with the lyrical content of the album; we know what it means to us, so enjoy!”
