EVANGELIST was created in spring 2008 by two individuals with clear aim to play pure and honest Epic/Heavy/Doom Metal. Major sonic inspiration came from obscure epic metal scene from US, epic doom metal pioneers and metal classics in general. Lyrical inspiration was taken from twisted minds of R.E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft, history, religion and spirituality of the ages gone by.
The debut album, “In Partibus Infidelium”, was recorded between 2009 and 2011 and released in June that year by PsycheDOOMelic Records. The sophomore record, “Doominicanes”, followed in May 2013 via Doomentia Records. In October 2014 a collaboration with CAPILLA ARDIENTE troops was revealed in form of the infamous CAPILLA ARDIENTE/EVANGELIST 12” split on which EVANGELIST delivered their own version of MAYHEM’S classic “Freezing Moon”.
In the middle of 2015 the band initiated songwriting for the third album. Unfortunately, due to health issues, works were put on hold until the following spring. In November 2016 EVANGELIST started the recordings for "Deus Vult".
