Evoken is a funeral doom metal band from New Jersey USA & were among the first wave of US doom/death bands, along with November's Doom. 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 & eventually changed to Evoken in 1994 after several line-up changes. 'Antithesis of Light', the band's third studio album, was recorded at Hermit Hole in New Jersey with Bumblefoot (of Guns N Roses fame). It was originally released in 2005 & continues with Evoken's trademark funeral doom sound; a thick wall of pounding guitar riffs, assisted by layers of keyboard effects to heighten the overall dark ambience of this doom /death metal classic. This edition of 'Antithesis of Light' is presented on the vinyl format for the first time, with gatefold sleeve. The release contains an extra unreleased song from Evoken's 2002 promo.
