Evenfall Elapsed emerged onto the metal scene through Metalhead Community Submissions, and their debut EP album, “State of Mind,” which was released in 2019, immediately caught my attention. This band exudes assurance with their tight instrumentation, monstrous sound, and incredible energy. However, what sets Evenfall Elapsed apart is their unique blend of Eastern and Western influences. Take a listen to “The Sinking Sun” as we dive deeper into their music.
For years, metal bands from the United States and the United Kingdom have dominated the genre. However, a refreshing change is on the horizon. As our ears become saturated with Western-influenced music, we yearn for the freshness that artists from other regions can offer. Evenfall Elapsed embodies this idea, reminiscent of bands like System of a Down, who brought a new perspective to the table.
Evenfall Elapsed radiates irresistible energy through their music, a quality that will work to their advantage if they can replicate it during their live performances. “The Sinking Sun” serves as an excellent example of the band’s ability to infuse different cultures into their metal music. The song’s progressive structure and Western-oriented vibe make it hard to believe you’re listening to a band from Taiwan. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, we look for potential rather than simply great songs from new bands, and Evenfall Elapsed has the potential to make a significant impact in the future.
