EVEMASTER was formed during the bleak autumn of 1996. Tomi Mykkänen (music) and Jarno Taskula (vocals) formed the band from the ashes of Finnish death/thrash band Mortal God.
After releasing the highly acclaimed demo “In Thine Majesty” early 1997, the debut album “Lacrimae Mundi” in 1998 and the second album “Wither” in 2003 it was time for a new album which was entitled “III”. It was released in Scandinavia in June 2010. The album features more mature song writing which had evolved melodically and added heavier parts in the music. The album has received rave reviews especially in Finland. The album features Dan Swanö on vocals on 2 songs (he also mixed and mastered the album) and Markus Vanhala (Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum) doing 2 guitar solos.
After the demise of Supernova Records the band felt the album didn’t get the deserved recognition they decided to work with up and coming Italian label THE GOATMANCER with the re-release of the album in 2015. This re-release is to boost the band for their next release which should be out in 2016.
Since the beginning EVEMASTER have played concerts with bands such as Anathema, Grip Inc, Pain of Salvation, Throes Of Dawn, Samael, Enochian Crescent, Profane Omen, Vader, Lacuna Coil etc.
III was voted the 10th best Finnish metal album of 2010 in Inferno magazine.
“III is not only the best Evemaster album so far but also one of the highlights of the whole genre, if we are talking about dark metal or the whole atmospheric metal genre.” – Imperiumi.net 9/10
“III album grows into a magnificent thematic epic of which multidimensionality challenges and rewards the listener time after time. Very strong Finnish knowhow!” – INFERNO Magazine 4½/5
“This is quite likely the best Evemaster have yet had to offer us. The songs are mature and catchy, so that right there will probably have a number of jaded metal fans immediately writing off the band, but if you enjoy the accessible sounds of Insomnium, Noumena, Rapture, or even mid period Katatonia you may find a lot to enjoy in III.” – Autothrall 8/10
“… pulling you along and into the overall experience: that’s another word too many acts overlook, but Evemaster have developed one which is intriguing and impressive.” – UberRock UK
