British thrashers EVILE are known for their breakneck speeds, monstrous riffing and shredding solos. Now, all over the world, music fans and video game enthusiasts are trying to emulate the speed and mastery required to perform one of the band's most well known tracks.
Since EVILE unleashed their metal anthem "Thrasher" on the Rock Band Network, thousands of fans armed with plastic guitars have been competing for a high-score on what has quickly become known as the most difficult track on the game.
In what has been dubbed "The Thrasher Challenge", EVILE's track has proven to be the ultimate test for all Rock Band players who think they've got the goods.
Watch a video of some fans attempting to master the track at an official Rock Band event at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH6aJNsnX18
Fans can be sure that when they play "Thrasher", they're getting the most genuine experience possible, as EVILE's lead guitarist OL DRAKE himself coded the track for the game. As well as "Thrasher", OL DRAKE has also added every single track from the band's latest album, INFECTED NATIONS.
