Eversin is a 4 piece Thrash band made up of vocalist Angelo Ferrante, six stringer Giangabriele Lo Pilato, Ignazio Nicastro holding down the low end, and skinsman Danilo Ficicchia. The group hails from Agrigento which is located on the southern coast of Sicily, Italy.

Trinity: The Annililation is the 3rd album from Eversin. Behind the Cover art, which features a destroyed city, that for some reason immediately brought to mind a black and white version of something from Fist Of The North Star, lies 8 tracks with intriguing titles like Litanies Of War, and Flagellum Dei. Eversin proclaims 3 of the big four as influences as well as Aniihilator, Death Angel and Testament.
I can certainly hear some touches of all those bands on these tracks, but by far the most obvious influence is Slayer. Ferrante's delivery and vocal style borrows heavily from Tom Araya, as he growls out his dissatisfaction with politics and society, and there is a pummeling approach to the riffing that is undeniably Slayer. The Bass and drums hammer at the listener and provide a good foundation for the band. All in all the songs create the sensation of being strapped to a juggernaut plowing through the streets of some unfortunate city leaving nothing but destruction in it's wake.

There does seem to be a bit of murkiness to the production but if anything I think this amplifies the effect of the band. Of course that's my opinion, but certainly we learned long ago that rawness in a recording often makes for a more intense experience.

Some songs seem to be over too quickly, but I think that is more because they are an enjoyable listen and not because they are short. Eversin keeps the songs interesting and don't artificially make them longer just for the sake of length. The result is an album that you will not tire of quickly, and surely provides for a good, possibly great, live experience.

Certainly this album makes me want to find the previous Eversin releases and hear more of what they have to offer, and I recommend that you grab this release.
