On The Table Read, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, ALPHOENIX, Japan’s melodic death metal band, have released a new album, Evil Ways, with five new music videos.
Japan’s melodic death metal band ALPHOENIX have evolved to a new level of awesomeness with their new album, Evil Ways. Combining lyricism and aggression, the dramatic sound features sensational twin guitars, clean vocals, and growls has reached the realm of isolation.
The Tokyo-based band is no stranger to the global death metal scene, and all of the members are seasoned musicians, ready to reinvogate the passion for death metal music, with their genuine passion for melodic death metal as a genre.
ALPHOENIX is made up of vocalist Thor, guitarist and vocalist Shimpei (Solar Guitars endorsement), bassist Bitoku (Ibanez endorsement), guitarist Yuki, and drummer Shohei. All five musicians have played roles in some of Japan’s defining metal bands, including MYPROOF, Sailing Before The Wind, Serenity In Murder, and more. Together, they bring a new re-fusion of melodic death metal and metalcore that pays homage to the key structural features while being bold and brash with the more experimental elements.
The new album features their signature energetic instrumentals and crisp drum thrashing, with the melodic compositions that makes Alphoenix’s sound and capitalizes on their strengths. The album features heavy riffs, dramatic parts, aggressive screams, refrain guitar melodies, impressive guitar solos, and other melodic death metal elements that have been updated to touch the heartstrings of the metal heads.
Sound engineering was by Jonas Kjellgren (ex-CARNAL FORGE, ex-SCAR SYMMETRY), a talented Swedish engineer who has mixed and mastered for AMORPHIS, DARK FUNERAL, HYPOCRISY and SABATON. Cover artwork was done by Biljee Design.
“Evil Ways” is available on all major digital platforms, and their CD was released September 21, 2022 via the Spiritual Beast label, and distributed by Universal Music Japan.
