Hevilan “Symphony of Good and Evil” is an album that contains more than its share of battering rhythms and finely honed, razor-edged riffing, the vocal acrobatics of Alex Pasqualle are solely in the spotlight on compelling symphonies of sludgy, operatic metal like the monstrous leadoff cut “Dark Paradise” and the chillingly thunderous “Great Battle”.
The chunky riffing, heavy character and the grit in some of the vocals definitely place HEVILAN more towards the modern heavy prog symphonic metal, but at the same time the melodies, the very good use of a choir and the dynamics and energy clearly show that their roots are firmly planted into the traditional heavy/power metal soil of Brazil. And if Hevilan’s sound would have to be condensed into one word, then “powerful” would probably one of the first ones to come to mind, because the riffing is nothing short of punishing and stands closer to heavy metal than symphonic metal most of the time.
When HEVILAN get going, though, they really go at it, like powerful “Rebellion of the saints”, speed hammer “Devil within part I & II” or the excellent ballad “Always in my dreams”, where the Brazilians prove that they don’t have to hide behind anybody.
