Since the initial article there has been one change in the line-up with Dave Lowes now playing Bass.

Slave No More, the middle of the five tracks on the EP Reckoning (available on bandcamp) is a decent example of the ability of Envenomed to produce music that is simultaneously punchy and silken as the quartet allow the strong melodies plenty of space to flood the room.

In advance of the EP – the title track which finds Envenomed launching the first new material since their introduction a couple of years ago that is a showcase of their ability to combine powerful driving metal and at the same time compose surprisingly melodic sequences.

You will have noticed this website is written with no health and safety warnings, so in the spirit, turn up the volume and thrash your neck as you head-bang with Envenomed. Inside the speaker breaking volumes of sounds lay voluminous compositions laden with melodic inflections which provide the audience the courtesy to hang their leather jacket prior to reaching for air guitar.

Envenomed have something of a chequered history, as line-up changes have slowed their progress over the past nine years. I come across many bands, sadly, with this fulcrum of development where the core element never can quite find a fit, but a line-up that has lasted long enough to produce a début LP which saw the light of day earlier this month, Evil Unseen, may find the band in different mettle. Having had the opportunity to run through the twelve track release it is a fine album for those of us who enjoy a bleeding cranium.

The roaring pace is matched by guitarists who can find spaces to explore drama and for this Envenomed deserve immense credit and I hope this is now a formulation that will find them in a happier and longer lasting space.
