TLDR: The song is solid death metal even if the video isn’t anything interesting.
“Swedish Death Metallers EVOCATION have announced Janne Jaloma as their new drummer.
Comments guitarist Marko Palmén of EVOCATION: “We are very proud to welcome Janne Jaloma as the new drummer of EVOCATION. Janne has previously made himself a name in the Gothenburg & UK scenes as a dedicated and hardworking drummer for bands such as Despite, Bloodshot Dawn & Deals Death. His technical skills as well as his groove are pure magic and the way he plays makes him a perfect fit for EVOCATION. Janne will make his live debut with EVOCATION on the release ritual scheduled for the 8th of April in Borås.”
Please welcome Janne Jaloma to EVOCATION and enjoy his amazing drum play-through for ‘Imperium Fall’ from the band’s latest album ‘The Shadow Archetype’ at

EVOCATION released their stunning new longplayer ‘The Shadow Archetype’ just recently on March, 10th! The album is a confession to their Swedish Death Metal roots while adding bits and pieces of roaring Thrash Metal to their addictive heavy sound!
Check out EVOCATION’s video for ‘Condemned To The Grave’ at:
There are two making-of videos as well as the first two singles ‘Children Of Stone’ and ‘The Coroner’ available at metalblade.com/evocation where you can also order ‘The Shadow Archetype.’ The album is out on vinyl as well as on Digi-CD (comes w/free beer underlay) and all digital outlets.
‘The Shadow Archetype’ was recorded at three different studios. Backing vocals, mixing and mastering were done at Dugout Productions. Daniel Bergstrand handled the recording of backing vocals and mixing. George Nerantzis handled the mastering. Drums were recorded at Crehate Studios together with studio engineer Oscar Nilsson. ‘The Shadow Archetype’ also features veteran drummer Per Möller Jensen (ex-The Haunted, ex-Invocator) on session drums. Per sets a new Death Metal standard on the new Evocation album with his complex and yet groovy drumming, which we know well from his time in The Haunted. Guitars, bass, and lead vocals were recorded by the band in their own studio, Acacia Avenue Recordings. “We started recording the drums in late June 2015 and did the last recordings with vocals in June 2016. So, we spent roughly a year in the studio with ‘The Shadow Archetype’. In my opinion, the production is our strongest so far. It has all the elements I want in a production; raw brutality with a distinctive punch!”
