Pop Evil’s newest offering, Pop Evil (eOne), starts strong out of the gate, a glorious return to good old-fashioned, popular, light Heavy Metal. Dave Grahs and Nick Fuelling prove some nice chunky guitar work interplayed with air guitar worthy riffs. Leigh Kakaty provides vocals you can actually hear! Not only can you hear the vocals but they are also of a pitch and timbre that are pleasing to the ear. Best of all, you can sing along. Frat Boys, Norebang addicts, High Schoolers, Air Guitar and Air Drummers rejoice! An album for all of us! Continue reading
POP EVIL will enter Studio Litho and London Bridge Studios with veteran producer Adam Kasper to begin work on an all new LP due out this summer. Kasper, who has produced mega-hit records for bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Foo Fighters, it was an easy choice for the band to make. “It was very important to us to choose a producer that has the credentials” says frontman Leigh Kakaty. “We also had a distinct vision on where the band could move forward and take our sound into the future. With the success of our last record we wanted to challenge ourselves and explore new and creative ways of musical expression”.
“Individually, these guys are all great players and writers,” says Kasper. “Collectively they are a force to be reckoned with. Musically this record is intricate, heavy and melodic. With their charismatic lead singer and a drummer that sounds like John Bohnam and Dave Grohl’s love child, I’m more than excited about this one.”
The yet to be titled effort will be the highly anticipated follow up to the band’s 2013 release, Onyx, which recently reach 115,00 copies sold domestically. Watch a thank you video by the band here.
