Biography

Boston, United States (2006 – present)

Revocation is a Death/Thrash 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.

    Yeah it's exactly as I thought when first listening to this band. Not really into revocation, but it seems like the death-version of the thrash-vektor haha.

    Damn this album is so fucking good, AOTY potential !!! Scorched Earth Policy is so badass. One of their best song with No Funeral and The Grip Tightens.

    My favourite so far on the album is United In Helotry, that solo section is one of the sickest parts I've heard from the entire Revo discography.

    IMO Scorched Earth Policy is the most killer song Revocation has ever written. So complex and layered with insane riffing, and excellent drumming hand-work.

    Deathless is on par with Teratogenesis, and blows the self titled out of the water (which IMO was their weakest album). Every body has their favorites, obviously. I think they really stepped it up and made a quality album here! I can't decide if I like it better than Existence/Chaos as it doesn't have the same thrashy major scale rock n' roll feel. However, I do like the darker, heavier territory. Its different, but its also really good. [2] Fucking nailed it ABHORRANCE666
