Ever Since / Press

“Ever Since is a Swiss band that went on a hiatus after three albums that lasted six years but is now picking up again with Bring Out The Gimp. Their brand of metal can be compared to Disturbed or Static-X, tight riffs and ditto drumwork with some keyboards added. The songs all have a thumping backbone with a vocalist that knows his limitations but knows how to deliver a melody. The tempo is high but with Step In The Hell and No Way Out they take a step back for some variation. A great combination of heavy riffing and melody make this a noteworthy comeback. The production by Sybreed main man Drop is heavy yet clear and really adds something to the mix. The keyboard sound is mysterious and all songs have a hook that grabs you. All in all a nice album by these Swiss guys. Now please come over and perform this live. Lords Of Metal (NL) 85/100”

"Neben dem letzten MYGRAIN-Album eines meiner aktuellen Modern-Metal-Highlights." Metal.de (DE) 8/10

“Ever Since made my day, no Ever Since made my year with this release, and while I’m writing this review, I can easily confirm that I listened to this album for about 15-20 times and still, it’s making progress, still I discover elements that sounds like new. Some songs have a little keyboard intro or samples that add atmosphere to the arrangements and they all have a typical Ever Since approach. People might say that everything is already written and done and it’s not possible to release an original album. Well, Ever Since succeeded! I can’t mention a band that might be similar or could be described as influential. My rating: 99 / 100”

“Ever Since sort son nouvel album après six années de refonte complète, faisant au passage le choix de l'efficacité. Des titres très bien menés, taillés pour la scène, avec assez de richesse pour qu'une écoute approfondie apporte son lot de satisfaction! Un metal qui s'inscrit dans son époque sans pour autant tomber dans les excès d'un modernisme opportuniste. Au programme, une production au poil, avec un côté froid très adéquat, puissance et tranchant au rendez-vous. Un de leurs atouts majeurs est, outre toutes leurs qualités, un chanteur particulièrement inspiré aux registres variés. Dès "Bring out the gimp" on a le droit à un éventail large des possibilités du groupe. Riffs accrocheurs, puissants, affiché dans un style mais surtout pas dans un carcan. Ever Since pioche ci et là pour forger son propre alliage dans lequel on reconnaîtra quelques éléments métalliques de Soilwork, mais aussi une certaine teneur powermetal. "Run" part sur les chapeau”

“The album titled opening track slithers in with some touchy synths and a progressive riff then kicks your bollocks right up to your throat with a ruthless Disturbed sound to it. Some well timed pinch harmonics picked through the wah pedal over the boot stomping riffs, this scene setter straps you in and you’re not getting off this ride until the final track! Second track Run follows suit with a galloping riff/synth combo and Pedro’s vocals even have a slight early Dave Mustaine roughness to it while track 3 Circles has more of the same heavy thrash pumping through the speakers. Tracks 4 and 5 slows the pace a little and showcases Ever Since’s calmer side but soon enough kicks back on again from track 6 No Way Out with more thrashy coarseness. Throughout the nine track is full of moments of real heavy brilliance and leaves you wondering why it took so long for this album to come out. The fire has certainly rekindled and will burn its way through 2014 ruthlessly leaving nothing b”

“Massif ! Et ... dans ta face ! C'est en sortant de cet album ce qui reste sur les lèvres, tant le son sale et agressif se marie bien aux riffs violents qui percutent les enceintes durant les quelques trois quarts d'heure de l'album. Technicité, brutalité et variété répondent à l'appel aux armes, liant le conflit résultant d'un méchant cocktail rappelant tantôt le black grandiloquent des bons temps de Dimmu, tantôt des icônes suédoises plus death metal à la Children of Bodom ou les formations de Gothenburg. La voix passe sans problème de mélodies claires à des growls aigus typiques du death mélo, parfois transitant rapidement dans le feu de l'action pour un résultat étonnamment crédible. Seul reproche sérieux : le parti pris sur la netteté du son est discutable, vu les compos ambitieuses”
