Only a handful of metal bands today can claim to be carrying the torch of the future of metal. Boston’s own Revocation are one of those bands. Back in 2008, the band released their excellent debut album Empire of the Obscene, which was an insane hybrid of thrash, progressive and technical death metal, but for whatever reason, it flew under many a metalheads’ radars. However, a year later the band released Existence Is Futile, and with that album, Revocation single-handedly took the metal world by storm. People began to pay very close attention to this young and insanely talented band from Boston, and they have been ever since. As evidenced by their subsequent albums, all of which are fantastic, Revocation have progressed and matured very rapidly from a young band to a modern metal juggernaut, and the band’s latest album, Deathless, is their finest hour yet.
I’ve had the Revocation album for a little under a month now, and it’s been on constant rotation since I got it. I can safely say that it’s definitely the band’s work, and combines a little bit of everything that made their last 4 releases fantastic and put it into a pot to make what will surely become on of the best albums of 2014. Unfortunately, many of my friends have been left in the dust, unable to hear more than just the singles the band released over the past few weeks. Well, fret not! Now you can stream the new record in full! Check it out after the jump!
Anyone remotely familiar with the death and thrash scenes has without a doubt heard the name Revocation once or twice. The Boston natives have done an exemplary job of establishing their place in both genres in a very short period of time. The band has already released two singles from their upcoming album Deathless, and just in case the band hasn’t gotten you pumped enough yet, they’ve provided further enticement with a new track from the album, titled ‘Labyrinth of the Eyes,’ streaming courtesy of Metal Underground.
Revocation are getting ready to release their upcoming full length Deathless via Metal Blade Records, their first release with their new label. We’ve already heard one single from the band, and now they’ve gone ahead and given us another one. ‘Madness Opus’, described by Dave Davidson when we interviewed him as “one of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written”, is streaming now over at Noisey. Check it!
Save for one or two ardent detractors, Revocation are universally enjoyed by Heavy Blog staff. In case you missed it, they have a new record coming out on October 14th, entitled Deathless. I’ve been privileged enough to hear it, and I must say, it’s their best work yet. Just you wait.
Meantime, the band have released behind the scenes footage of the making of the new album, which you can see after the jump. It’s full of new snippets of music as well as band interviews. With more episodes to come, surely there will be separate videos for drums, guitars, and bass, and perhaps vocals as well. Check it out after the jump!
Stop what you’re doing right now!!! Modern metal masters Revocation have premiered the title track from their upcoming album Deathless, and it’s every bit as fantastic as you would expect. Listen and have your face melted off after the jump.
Revocation are a staff favorite. I’ve seen them a few times and they just seem to get better and better. I’m extremely excited for Deathless, their Metal Blade debut, later this year, but unfortunately those who wanted to see them live in the next few weeks will have to wait. Phil Dubois-Coyne, their fantastic drummer, has suffered a broken arm and will be unable to perform, leading the band to cancel a few week’s worth of shows. Check out what the band had to say after the jump.
