“Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings.”
― Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Much like a storm, CEVILAIN has swept onto the scene and left a poignant and lasting impression. Inspired by titans of the genre – Bring Me The Horizon, Highly Suspect, and Thrice – CEVILAIN channels their creative energies into captivating tracks whose impact is only surpassed by their energetic live performance and their ability to engage their audience. Members Cliff Menzies (Vocals/Guitar), Joel Lefebvre (Lead Guitar), Eddy Fox (Bass) and Andrew Parmelee (Drums) give every ounce of themselves night in and night out…
This is no more evident than on their 2020 release: “On Death & Dying”. The concept EP is based on the Kübler-Ross model, better known as the “Five Stages of Grief”, with each full-track highlighting a stage (Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance).
