EVANGELIST – “Deus Vult”
Release date: 20-12-2018
Genre: Epic Doom Metal
Label: Nine Records
Evangelist’s “Deus Vult” is a collection of songs that revolves around medieval history, religion and spirituality. With a richer musical identity, the band decided to use acoustic guitars and add more vocal and guitar layers, in order to conceive denser arrangements. Some tracks such as “The Leper King” have a strictly historical background, while some others are pure fantasy, such is the case of “Eremitus”.
Sonic inspiration comes from the obscure epic metal scene from the US, as well as from all the doom metal pioneers and metal classics in general. For the lyrical side of the band, Evangelist get their inspiration from the twisted minds of R.E. Howard and H.P. Lovecraft.
The band’s third album was supposed to be recorded in the middle of 2015 but unfortunately, due to health issues, works were put on hold until next spring. In November 2016 the band
started recordings and in the middle of 2018 “Deus Vult” was ready.
