Evergrey_2014_1_hires

Hymns For The Broken is Evergrey‘s 9th studio album following a three-year wait from the Glorious Collision released in February 2011.

Fallujah – The Flesh Prevails (2014)

A2000

Their signature sound is best described as sacrificing the virgin cunt with a cattle prod; but you already know that. Anyway, they are releasing their newest album Constricting Rage …
