APOCALYPTIC, the latest 10-track offering by Sweden’s very own Evocation unleashes a smorgasbord of Swedish metal almost to a fault. This band follows the template laid by At the Gates, The Crown and Carcass right down to the notes in the solos (“Murder in Passion”, “It is All Your Fault”), making this release at times more like a tribute to those bands (“We are Unified Insane”). Despite obvious patronizations, Evocation does a solid job in recreating the menacing guitar tones (“Psychosis Warfare”) and general savagery of the style they’ve adopted as their own (“Reunion in War”).
