Biography

Boston, United States (2006 – present)

Revocation is a Thrash/Death Metal band from Boston, MA, formed in 2006 from Cryptic Warning. They combine the power and aggression of the old-school thrash metal style with the twisted musicianship of technical death metal. After 2 demos, they released their first full-length album, “Sanity’s Abberation”. A unique display of technical prowess and ferocious energy which came out in 2005. They released an EP the following year entitled “Summon the Spawn” which was followed by their next full-length, “Empire of the Obscene” in 2008 by Relapse Records. The thrashers continued their face-melting style to positive reviews releasing two more full-length albums “Existence is Futile” (2009) and “Chaos of Forms” (2011) and were featured on a Relapse Records Label Showcase album in 2012.

2010 they added touring guitarist Dan Gargiuolo and hit the world touring seen. After playing 150 shows in 13 countries, the group entered the studio to record Chaos of Forms. With new tracks such as ‘No Funeral’ ‘Conjuring the Cataclysm’ and ‘Cretin’, we can see that this band shows no intention of slowing down; both literally and musically.

    does enyone else get reminded heavily of P.O.D.'s 'Will You' when hearing the last part of 'Archfiend' by Revocation ???? some sort of tribute/reference? or just complete coincidence? what do you guys think ?

    "The Self Titled could have benefited from much better production sound...The sound is a big downgrade" Well it did help that Scion paid for everything on The EP, but big downgrade is a big overstatement.

    PS: The Self Titled could have benefited from much better production sound, more similar to Teratogenesis or Chaos Forms. The sound is a big downgrade

    Self Titled Album, Starts excellent with The Hive, and ends excellent with a brilliantly accurate cover of Metallica's Dyers Eve (especially the guitar solo). Every other song in between is pretty boring. Not terrible, as there is great musicianship and shredding guitar solos. But the overall vibe is boring. Maybe too much tech, and not nearly as much thrashing as given credit for.

    I had no problem with the vocals on Dyers Eve. I agree Davidson should have growled instead of singing it, but IMO it was still passable.

    I would've liked the Dyers Eve cover more if the vocalist stuck to harsher vocals. He sounded ridiculous with his James Hetfield impersonation .

    I don't know why they're tagged as Technical Death Metal. It's obvious that they're Technical Modern Thrash metal...

    What an awesome surprise. There's always that band that you listen to for the first time and wonder why the fuck haven't you checked them before.

    At first I wasn't sure what to make of the s/t, but after blasting it for almost a solid week, I think it's their most consistent effort yet. The songs seem a lot more death metal-oriented, and that depth and density really shines through on repeated listens. The extended instrumental section that closes out 'The Gift You Gave' is amazing every step of the way.

    After listening to the self-titled a handful of times, I'll slot it as my second favorite of their albums. I don't know if it's possible to top Existence is Futile for me.

    I know I'm in the minority, but I think this is their strongest release to date.

    Wow, the self titled is a monster of an album! Definitely reminds me why I love these guys so much.
