Evil (1983-1985, 2007-2015): a Speed Metal band from Copenhagen, Denmark.
980s speed/thrash metal was the order of the day with Pete "Popcorn" Hurricane (bass), Finn Lindblad (drums), Tommy Strauss (guitars), Kim Xmas (guitars) and Pearl Angel (vocals) when they released their one and only EP, Evil's Message (1984) shorlty after the drums were taken over by Freddie Wolfat. They launched themselves at the very start of the style movement, unfortunately they apparently didn't have the suss to competely follow through to become a hit act on the main scene.
A split followed, Evil / Sortilège, in 1999 with several membership changes and break-ups following. The most recent line-up features Henrik Molin (drums), Benny Petersen (guitars), Kræn Meier (guitars) and Niels W. Knudsen (guitars), with Kim Xmas and Pete "Popcorn" Hurricane returing for a brief time. Klaus Vicious (vocals), Bob Thunder (bass) and Claus Weiergang (guitars) were also featured in this band. The most recent work, Shoot the Messenger, arrived in 2015, shortly before they split again.
Footnote: During 1982-1983 they went originally under the name Never Mind.
