Evoken band

Evoken band
is from Lyndhurst, New Jersey that is influenced by the Australian band
Disembowelment, the American band Winter, and the Finnish band Thergothon. The band name Evoken was taken from the Thergothon song found on the Fhtagn nagh Yog-Sothoth demo. The band was founded by guitarist Nick Orlando under the name Funereus in April 1992. It was with the original line-up of Rob (Bass/Vocals); Nick (Guitar); Phil (Guitar) & Vince (Drums) that they recorded what would be the only Funereus release, which was a rehearsal demo released in 1992. After briefly changing their name to Asmodeus the following year, the band eventually decided upon the name Evoken in 1994. Band is one of the earliest U.S. doom/death metal bands that are still active today along with Novembers Doom and Rigor Sardonicous.
