Evildead is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California, formed around December 1986. It was originally conceived as a side-project of guitarist Juan Garcia and bassist Mel Sanchez, but became their main band after their respective bands Agent Steel and Abattoir broke up. They were soon joined by three of the other former members of Abattoir: Phil Flores on vocals, Marc Caro on guitar and Rob Alaniz on drums, although Caro was replaced shortly by Albert Gonzales. Since then, they have experienced a number of lineup changes, leaving Garcia as the only remaining original member left.

During its nine-year existence, Evildead released only two full-length studio albums, one live album, and two self-released demos "The Awakening" and "Terror", released in 1987 and 1994 respectively. After their split with Steamhammer, as well as failed attempts to sign to another record label and record what would have been their third album, the band broke up in 1995. However, in 2008, Evildead reunited and had performed live on several occasions since then. They had also restarted work on a new album, and released their first song in 20 years, "Blasphemy Divine", on their SoundCloud page in 2011. However, Evildead announced their second breakup in October 2012, once again leaving their third album unreleased. A second reunion of Evildead was announced in 2016.
