This debut release should be the nicest gift for their loyal and all at once forbearing fans. Yeah, not only true King's Evil fans that won't be disappointed with this release, but also any thrash metal fan who loves any decent thrash metal stuff from any place of this world.

, especially in the side of aggressiveness. All song is fairly linear in quality, anyway there may be some minor weakness or flaws, but basically all of it still remains quite consistent.
About King's Evil musicality, vocally they are a bit reminiscent of earlier Slayer (or even Kreator) style. However it's a real fair to say that King's Evil has a death-metal taste in vocals signature. It's mid-ranged vocals delivery, sometimes they delivered more heavier and darker with the addition of some shallow backing vocals lines. Then their guitars play, this should be one of the best aspects of Deletion of Humanoise
beside the aggressive-energetic sound and strong songwriting composition. Their duo guitarist, Yamada and Wataru, have shared both fast paced riffs and convincing solos. Yeah, there's no doubt about it, King's Evil has chosen the more aggressive-harmonized and technical approach, rather than the more techy-melodic sides of thrash. Then the drumming, King's Evil has delivered a strong and solid drumming play throughout the album. The drummer played it with ferocious-beat of striking, high snare tempo of thrashing, all is well-played in both technical way and the speed of playing. Then bass, beyond question, it is well-mixed to complete the album as superb thrash metal release.
The conclusion, within thirty five minutes of music and with eight songs inside, this album is relentless thrash metal stuff. Production quality is almost flawless with a sort of raw side to keep the album a bit old school style. King's Evil is able to create complex, intense, harmonic or melodic, and surely yes, a well-arranged songwriting composition. From start to finish, through this debut album, King's Evil offers what all purist thrash metal fan always wants...
So, with all respect: "Arigato
, King's Evil!"
