Mexican blackened death metallers EVILHEART announce the departure of long time guitarist Adrian Urias.
Drummer Rodolfo Rogers comments: "After 13 years working together, Evilheart and guitarist Adrian Urias will take different paths. We will continue to work in our next album and we wish Adrian the best for his future endeavors. A new guitarist will be announced at a later time."
EVILHEART's latest album 'Quinquaginta' was re-released in 2015 on Vancouver, BC based Test Your Metal Records. The band is currently working on their follow up. EVILHEART completed their second Canadian tour this past October, which featured new vocalist Adam 'Greasy' Benito of Calgary's Train Bigger Monkeys.
Formed in 1999 in Culiacán, Sinaloa in Northwest México as a melodic black metal band, EVILHEART released their demo "Summoned To War" in 2001 later followed by their debut album "Dark In Glory" in 2014. That debut shifted the band's sound to a more black death metal direction, giving them a foothold in the Mexican metal scene and pushing them forward to share the stage with international acts such as Behemoth, Dimmu Borgir, Deicide, Amon Amarth and others.
By 2007, EVILHEART released "Storm Of Annihilation", an album that lead them to play their first overseas shows in Europe in 2011.
In 2014, EVILHEART released their most challenging work "Quinquaginta", which combined the melodic elements of "Dark In Glory" with the brutality of "Storm Of Annihilation" plus a lethal dose of speed. In 2015, upon signing a deal with Vancouver's Test Your Metal Records, the band embarked on their first Canadian Tour from coast-to-coast in support of the "Quinquaginta" re-release. The tour had some difficulties as two members had their visa applications denied, but in the end, the tour was a double-win as the band had a great response from the crowd and session singer Adam Benito from Calgary became a full-time member.

"Hickory, NC’s Rapheumets Well (pronounced Ra-few-mets) is a band heavily steeped in science fiction and fantasy. And when I say heavily, I mean HEAVILY. They slam dunk their lushly orchestral and luxurious symphonic melodic blackened death metal into a fantastical and fantastically creative and complex world that I don’t even want to embarrass myself trying to explain. But, you gotta give mad ol’ props to any band willing to dive head first into something as elaborately conceptual as this costumed and inventive septet have from the off." - Decibel Magazine
"The best symphonic metal albums understand the balance between the synths and the rest of the band, and Enders Door possesses that necessary element. Enders Door can also take you on a journey, offering a fantastic trip into unknown lands, which helps keep you on your toes. Most importantly, it lives up to the potential hinted at with The Exile, and should be an easy sell for fans of this style." - Dead Rhetoric
"The sense of epic that exists throughout Enders Door hits instantly with its mix of heavy riffs, death metal vocals, classical orchestrations & synth effects." - Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
"As you’re about to find out, this first song from the new album combines turbocharged death metal vehemence with sweeping orchestral melodies, interweaving blazing drumwork and rapid-fire riffing with cosmic synthesizer vistas and fluid soloing, vicious growls and hair-raising shrieks with a vaulting clean-sung passage that coincides with the protagonist’s decision to end his apathy." - No Clean Singing
"this album is chock-full of powerful, aggressive and moving sounds that show the diversity and complexity of the Symphonic Metal genre." - 925 Rebellion
"Enders Door – a humongous piece of synth driven, border line operatic, epic death/black metal.... To sum this album up, it is necessary to underline two things: Enders Door is massive, balls to the wall, in a sense very American in the old-school sense of bigger-better. It does not let up for a moment. It is also, for all its dramatic, heavy and violent darkness somehow rather filled with joy. For something so complex and bulked-up, there is a real sense of fun emanating from every track. Whether delivering rabid tech-death riffs over hyper fast blast beats, or introducing female vocals over multiple layers of synthesizers, strings and double kick drums, Rapheumets Well keeps it intense and inspired." - Archaic Triad
