Spanish thrash… Not just for kids anymore!  A must for Overkill fans.  Well, we suspect most thrash fans would bang their heads to this one, but the vocals especially remind our resident mascot, Gas Monkey, of Overkill.  One might also compare Angelus Apatrida to Suicidal Tendencies.  It’s also kind of like Fozzy, but faster.  The funny thing is that it’s actually not very heavy.  Fast, yes, but not exactly bone-crushing.  You could slam dance to it in theory, but it’s not exactly an aggressive tune.  ‘Tis good though!


The clip was directed by Adriana Lorente and Sara Cort, who already worked with ANGELUS APATRIDA on their preview clips for “You Are Next” and “Blast Off”. The band comments:
“Behind the meaning of ‘End Man’ lies the desperation of someone who has reached the limit, on the verge of exploding. Going though certain tough situations in life creates inner demons that sometimes show when least expected. That feeling of stressing intensity is present during the whole song, only letting loose when choruses appear. Adriana and Sara have once again done an amazing work adapting the concept of the song to a video by melting the meaning of this track to the inner general concept of the album and its artwork, based around the astronaut (See here!) with such an amazing and super detailed result.”

The artwork for Hidden Evolution was handled by Gyula Havancsák /, who has also created album sleeves for bands such as ANNIHILATOR, DESTRUCTION, STRATOVARIUS, GRAVE DIGGER and NIGHTINGALE. The standard track-listing for the album, which was once again recorded in Moita, Portugal at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso (ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN, ANATHEMA, etc.), reads as follows:

Hidden Evolution track-listing:
