(7/10) This four track EP boils metal down to its essence. Evil Invaders haven't found a new niche and there thrash metal is still very much influenced by bands like Exodus and some others. However, the passion that the guys put into their songs is worth some respect. It's the wildness and storminess of the young guys that makes them to an interesting thrash act.
"As Life Slowly Fades" is a furious opener. It comes with so much power that blows life into the listener instead of slowly letting it fade away. It's a four minutes power strike that leads to "Raising Hell" in which Joe sounds, with his high pitch screams, like the little brother of John Cyriis
The songs on the 'B-side' are known already. "Pulse of Pleasure" and "Victim of Sacrifice" found a spot on this EP as live versions. Both tunes sound authentic and real, simply how lives metal music should be captured on an album.
Evil Invaders might use the cookie cutter a approach a bit too much on the full-length albums, but on this EP things end up in an entertaining twenty minutes headbanging session that should be checked out by thrash enthusiasts.
