EVOKEN is a funeral doom metal band from New Jersey USA. The band's style draws comparisons to acts such as early MY DYING BRIDE & also Finnish band THERGOTHON - the name EVOKEN was even taken from an old THERGOTHON demo track.
The band was founded by guitarist Nick Orlando under the name Funereus in April 1992 & along with Rob (Bass/Vocals); Phil (Guitar) & Vince (Drums), they recorded what would be the only FUNEREUS release, a rehearsal demo. The band eventually changed to EVOKEN in 1994 after several line-up changes.
Quietus was EVOLKEN's second full-length studio album. It was originally released in 2001 & was recorded at WAVE Studios in New York during October & November of 1999. EVOKEN have become known for their thick walls of apocalyptic guitar on long epic tracks featuring strong, dark atmospherics, with Quietus being a classic example of funeral doom metal honed to perfection, becoming a cult hit with fans worldwide.
This edition of Quietus includes the extremely rare 1992 rehearsal recording from when the band was known as FUNEREUS - the song having never been recorded for any official release. Also included is another rare track, an instrumental originally from 2004.
