VOOR - EVIL METAL Demo (1985)



In an alternate reality somewhere, Quebec's VOOR were signed to Combat Records in 1985 instead of Possessed, and their manic, primitive jam "Evil Metal" gave its name to the music genre we all know and love, rather than Possessed's "Death Metal". In that same alternate reality, the clunky ESL lyrics of Voor's "In The Hell" became a rallying cry for Denim Warriors worldwide, and the mulleted, thin-mustached legions of Evil Metal took to the streets in a shared bloodlust for the False.

Alas, this is not the reality that we live in. Voor disappeared quickly and without fanfare shortly after the release of the ten-minute Evil Metal demo, but the atonal scribbling solos, galloping drums, and grunting, Tom G. Warrior vocals contained therein cause one to wonder....

What if?

You had me at "ESL lyrics". J'adore l'accent français que les gens ont au Québec. C'est drôle quand c'est dans le métal et c'est sexy quand ça appartient à une fille.
