MAR 01 2020 NEW BASSIST ANNOUNCED
EVIL DRIVE announces new bassist Matti Sorsa. Evil Drive is currently recording their third album and Matti will play all the bass lines for the forthcoming album. Matti has showed that he is the right man for the job. The new album will be released world wide via Germany based label Reaper Entertainment Europe.
Matti Sorsa: It is such a great opportunity in life to join a band that I first discovered back in 2013, when I heard their demos on the internet.For me It was love at first sight(or should one say after first listening). Bands main influences could be heard such as Iron Maiden, Slayer etc.Both of them my personal favorites. It is a real dream come true to have a change to join the band that I have been fan for many years.
Viktoria: The band is now twenty years younger than on the previous album. New members have brought lots of positive energy to the band and both of them are excellent musicians. The co-chemistry is better than ever before, which is really important in a band.
