REVOCATION have spent the last eight years converting fans to their cause with four full length albums, an EP with Scion AV, and a charismatic live show led by guitarist/vocalist Dave Davidson. The Boston-based band also features the staggeringly talented lineup of: Dan Gargiulo on guitar, Brett Bamberger on bass, and Phil Dubois on drums. REVOCATION has firmly been established as one of the genre’s finest and will continue their campaign as part of the Metal Blade Records roster. Their fifth album, “Deathless,” is a fitting debut for the label, and a definitive statement of intent from the band. The artwork for “Deathless” was hand painted by internationally recognized tattoo artist Tom Strom. An in-depth feature on the process of creating the artwork can be seen on Metal Sucks HERE.
During the recording process, the band shot a series of videos documenting their work on “Deathless“. All three episodes can be seen now at metalblade.com/revocation.
“Deathless” was recorded with acclaimed producer Zeuss at Planet Z studios in Massachusetts. The album is ten tracks of ambitious, catchy, and undeniably heavy material. Musically, cuts like “Madness Opus” showcase a more deliberate REVOCATION – restrained, if even moderately so, to deliver a slow, near-dirge like track. Alternatively, the title track highlights the diversity of Davidson’s vocals with a catchy chorus. It’s an earworm the likes of which the band had only previously hinted. The rest of the album offers a refreshing variety of music and truly feels like an “album”, rather than a collection of similar tracks. This is a refinement, achieved only through years of focusing on their craft.
REVOCATION are touring in support of “Deathless” now with Crowbar in North America the tour stops tonight in Dallas, TX and is set to run through October 10th in Houston, TX. This tour will be followed by a full European tour with new label mates Cannibal Corpse and Aeon. Following the European dates REVOCATION will head to China for a run of dates, followed by a trip down under to Australia for a string of shows.
