King's Evil (1989-present): a Thrash Metal band from Tokyo, Japan.
The Japanese metal scene has flourished for years, but few of their bands get noticed outside of their homeland, but formed in 1989 King's-Evil would be one of them. Started by brothers Wataru (vocals/guitar) and Masamichi Yamada (guitar) who were in high school at the time, it would take 12 years for a stable lineup to materialize with Takachika Nakajima (bass/backing vocals) and Eiji Murakami (drums). Their debut album Deletion Of Humanoise emerged in 2001. The album was a slice of fiery, speedy 80's-inspired thrash, strongly influenced by Slayer and Kreator. Sacrosanct (2011) followed.
