Album Notes
THE EVERSCATHED lineage dates back to 1996 when brothers Bill and Tim Frickenstein (bass/vocals and drums, respectively) chose a warpath of dark, dismal Death Metal. As a three piece, with Brian Laurence on guitar, they were known as ENMORTEM. The band recorded and released the four track recorded demo, "Bleeding The Sorrow" in 1997. This tape featured five songs of fairly technical, down tuned gutteral Death Metal. A lack of cohesion and cooperation led to Laurence quitting the band soon after this release. Tom Flanagan entered on guitar and ENMORTEM recorded and released "Their Blood I Offer The King" in 1998. This was another four track recorded demo, but the four songs showed a clearer and more distinct sound for the band. The guitars were tuned down just a half step and there were some catchier doom passages. With this line up the band played a few shows, and in 1999, they entered Sheffield Studio to record "Manifestations Of Infernal Disgust". This was six well produced songs, where some of the odd, dissident guitar parts truly impressed. It's around this same time when the band joined forces with Brice Dalzell of CORPSEVOMIT to play in a side band called WARSHIP. Dalzell also lent backing vocals to "Reverance To The Profane" during the "Manifestations..." session. The band self released the new demo, played out, and spread the word. When Dalzell quit CORPSEVOMIT soon thereafter, it only seemed logical to finally make ENMORTEM a four piece with him on second guitar. After only two new songs and two shows as a four piece band, drummer Tim Frickenstein seemed to grow tired of playing with Flanagan and threatened to quit. Flanagan quit instead, making ENMORTEM a three piece again as the band endured it's final line up change. ENMORTEM entered RK Studio in 2000 to record a new demo called "Barbaric Displeasure". These six songs showed a far more focused and structured ENMORTEM, and some Death/Thrash vibes started to show through. Dalzell started singing some lead vocals at this time. The production was more grisly than that of "Manifestations...", but it perfectly captured the band. "Barbaric Displeasure" was mastered and pro duplicated on cassette. 2001 was spent spreading the new tape, playing some decent shows, buying new gear, and writing a bunch of new songs. In 2002, ENMORTEM were ready to record a full length. The band entered Studio One to record "Razors Of Unrest". This was ten songs, (just two from previous demos) with great production and focus. Professional promo copies were made, and the word was spread. Before the next step was made, ENMORTEM decided on a name change. ENMORTEM's past endeavors in no way represented the present song writing and purpose. The band's name was changed to THE EVERSCATHED. As the band was on a significant high, there was only one way to go. In 2003, guitarist/vocalist Brice Dalzell was severely injured at work, severing a nerve in his fretting arm. THE EVERSCATHED decided they would not be put on hiatus, they just had to struggle harder and longer. The "Razors..." release was put on hold. The brothers Frickenstein offered notable support, having to practice along with guitar parts from the CD, having Dalzell just sing or simply play single notes on a bass. Finally, the band played a basement show in 2004, and Dalzell started learning new material from Bill. In early 2005, Bill Frickenstein was injured at a show he attended, tearing the bicep on his fretting arm. Again a surgery, again down time. He recovered quickly, and the appropriately named THE EVERSCATHED played a return show. The words "Death" and "Metal" could not be more familiar to these three able Death Metal veterans. Wounds of confusion from the razors of unrest are imminent.

Transcending the Mundane

If you are a fan of classic death metal, this will be a worthy addition to your
The Everscathed is a death metal band from Chicago, IL. Their sound can be compared to early Obituary and Morbid Angel. Their music is brutal, but there is a lot of substance to it. They play with a lot of different tempos. This makes the music less monotonous. The riffs are technical enough to make the music interesting, but not too technical that the listener will need a calculator to enjoy it. The lyrics tackle the standard topics of Death Metal, but they don't come off sounding gimmicky or contrived. They really capture the sound of good 1990s American Death Metal. If you are a fan of classic death metal, this will be a worthy addition to your collection. If you are not a fan of death metal, this really won't convince you otherwise. This is a solid slab of vintage American Death Metal.
