What is the best Evoken in your eyes? I remember a long time ago, a friend sent me some mp3's of Evoken's "Quietus" album, and I was hooked! Soon after I traded tapes with Keith Dempe of Eternal Darkness Creations for an Embrace the Emptiness cassette, and I loved it! Soon after that I bought up all the cds I could. This band can do no wrong I think, every album they release is a masterpiece in some way. And here is a confession: Awhile back I was having a lonesome night of drunkenness, and I happened to be listening to Descent Into Chaotic Dream (from Atra Mors) and it brought tears to my eyes! That is pretty amazing when a band can do that to me. So I think this band Evoken only got heavier over the years, and I'm curious what they will do next!

Now here is a video interview with them, conducted by a (somewhat drunken) interviewer, haha!:

you mean in terms of the show? it was fucking killer, i don't really know what else to say haha. no one else seemed to be into it, which is dumb, but i'm not really surprised since the show was strangely part of a primarily hipster festival.

Sleep actually played right after, which was also great!

Merzbow had his own set 2 nights ago, which i missed because of some bullshit.

Quietus overall I'd reckon its a better mixture of atmosphere and great riffs, but the band's material overall is great. A Caress of the void lost me toward the end but its a great album, and Atra Mors is tales Quietus only by a little bit.

Quietus was my introduction and is still my favourite mainly for the complete Disembowelment worship. Of the newer stuff I really love the tracks from the split with Beneath The Frozen Soil

The Roadburn '11 performance was probably the heaviest one i've seen to date. My vote goes to Embrace the Emptiness.

From the sounds of it I probably need to revisit Quietus. A Caress The Void was my introduction to the band, it was close between that and Antithesis of Light, but A Caress The Void won out.

Quietus, mostly because it was the first album by Evoken that I heard. All of the material by them is great though. I will have to search for a video of that performance with Merzbow.

My vote as well. This one needs a vinyl release.

Really like Shades of Night...., one of the few doom things that gives dISEMBOWELMENT a serious run for its money in my eyes

Went with Quietus for exactly the same reasons.. bought it when it came out and totally opened a new level for me for doom.. although I do actually probably listen to their last couple albums a lot more.. they're all fucking amazing. Best american death/doom band ever.
