Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: Evilterror

Story behind your band/artist name: The eighty’s metal music revolution is the inspiration behind Evilterror, a unique heavy metal trio who honors the legendary riffs and guitar licks of the genre, turning it into the modern rebirth of speed metal. Evilterror was formed in 2003 in Bogota, Colombia, led by Nathan Daniel Evilfire (lead guitars & vocals) and Peter Muller Steelforce (drums & backing vocals). Nathan and Peter’s idea for the band is inspired by the powerful rhythm of this genre and some of its most influential artists that include: Judas Priest, Ostrogoth, Raven, Running Wild, and Iron Angel. In 2012, Evilterror released their first album titled ‘Speed Metal Rulez,’ followed by ‘The City is on Fire (EP) in 2015,’ and their first masterpiece titled ‘Iron Dogs’ in 2015, reaching worldwide audiences that included Europe and Japan. Their latest album, ‘High Voltage Allowed’ was recorded by Nazca Records in Alexandria, VA and released in 2017. This album established the definitive tone of the band, leading their way to an evolutionary transition to the US music market. Evilterror shared the stage with legendary metal acts including Baron Rojo, Raven, Enforcer, Tygers of Pan Tang, among others. Their Tour of Mexico in 2017 left a positive dent with metal fans in that country and their contagious style spread to Southern California, Texas and Virginia, triggering a short US Tour that included northern states like Pennsylvania, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Their upcoming album titled ‘The Call of Rock & Roll’ is scheduled for release in October of 2018, under Reposia Records.
