Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Tuesday, January 4, 2022 at 6:16 PM (PST)

Happy New Year, readers. I have not been posting much yet this year due to tragic family matters but am going to get back into the swing of it sporadically as I feel up to it. Wanted to share some cool REVOCATION news. The premiere technical thrashers of modern metal have today posted about a follow up to The Outer Ones:

Happy New Year heathens, album #8 is completed and is due out in the fall. This is our most diabolical record to date, we can‚Äôt wait to share more with you all when the time comes ūü§ė

Hails to the dudes. It will be interesting to see what the current line-up has in store.

I am firmly in the REVOCATION have never musically let me down camp. I love every one of their albums and think they consistently knock it way out of the park. Now the band are headlining one of the pound for pound best tour packages of the Fall. As I sit here overworked/with my own frustrations, under-valued as a human being by society and with an ulcer likely widening into a gaping black hole as we speak, it gives me dark joy to know that death metal is wreaking unstoppable chaos across the face of the USA thanks to this band’s inability to be put back in the genie bottle. Support good bands (in any genre) that are making it work. It is hard to make it out there and while I may feel like a frustrated artist, it is fucking awesome that some brilliant bands are doing their own thing and managing to carry the torch for not the most popular of rock genres (though it perhaps ought to be).

Next week, REVOCATION will kick off their long-awaited North American headlining tour. The trek will begin September 17th and run through October 20th. Support will be provided by Exhumed, Rivers Of Nihil, and Yautja. See all confirmed dates below.

Revocation are beloved around the world for being one of the hardest touring, funniest yet most insanely capable technical death metal bands in the business. They make it seem cool to be in a metal band again, kicking ass and getting things done whereas most bands are too busy bitching and moaning about what is good enough for them while scarcely leaving the boundaries of their own zip code.

Revocation have never settled and thus have made many impressive albums at this point. Some of their earliest material is now being re-released and you can hear a remixed and remastered version of “Summon The Spawn” at Decibel¬†HERE.

Revocation’s Empire of the Obscene (including the Summon the Spawn demo) will be issued November 13th on Metal Blade Records. Click¬†HERE¬†for the pre-order.

God damn, two rad tunes, one bassist! Yes, two awesome songs that both feature fret dominator Brett Bamberger. The new Revocation clip and Publicist UK‘s dark, Bauhaus-esque “Away” are two very different but thrilling jams. Tuesday, you are thus forth renamed Brett Bamberger’s bitch!

Album Review: Revocation – “Deathless”

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Saturday, November 15, 2014 at 8:24 AM (PST)


“It beckons to me, a being of immense and terrifying power”, growls vocalist and underground guitar hero David Davidson on the towering and dark spiral “Madness Opus” from Revocation‘s latest full length Deathless. Ever since the band became a 4 piece in recent years they have been proving it is clobberin’ time more and more with each release, though everything in their back catalogue is fucking intense and fun tech death with hellacious grooves. Revocation maybe don’t have the vocal dexterity of some groups but they are quickly becoming a near-perfect modern metal band anyway the last few years. If I was on Skull Island and only had this bad boy, I probably wouldn’t complain too much rocking out to this while King Kong chased me or maybe stopped to throw horns and skull punch a giant dinosaur. “The Blackest Reaches” adds more eerie chords than ever before to the band’s patented attack and the lean sense of purpose all their record’s share is still thankfully there, just bigger, stronger and dare I say…faster?

Guitar heroics and blazing leads welded to thrash parts and aneurism causing patterns with major groove take this release to another level. It is a bit stronger than their recent self-titled effort, though “Invidious” was maybe the funnest single they have released since “ReAnimaniac”. Still, this record overall takes things to another level for the hard working band and strikes a serious tone. The production from Zeuss and the jaw dropping performances here put this band up amongst the new school of greats at last, their tour chops psychotically evident on this. Deathless could stand against or with metyal from any era, however. “Scorched Earth Policy” proves they still are topical and relevant as well and that “Entombed In Wealth” and the band’s kind of subversive political moments in the past are no fluke. “The Fix” broods that “A system designed with controlling intent cannot be changed from within.” Mid term elections, anyone? The pendulum swings yet again in a parade of corporate sponsored clowns. Still, this is overall more about insanity and revering the many strains of thrash and death than anything else, and these guys bring the party. Staggering sections that would make Chuck Schuldiner (arguably this band’s biggest forefather) proud abound. Fans of Skolnik and Peterson will also be thrilled at the sweeping team work between Davidson and co-guitar bad boy Dan Gargiulo. When Davidson barks “Welcome to the new regime”, you are going to believe him.

Revocation get in the van with “Deathless” video

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Friday, November 14, 2014 at 5:13 AM (PST)


Get in the van. Hmmm, remember when Converge covered Black Flag? That was a long time ago. What if Revocation did “The Process Of Weeding Out”? That would be siiiiick. Dudes, please make this a reality.

Oh, yeah…so every time someone gets moony eyed over some newfangled halfway decent tech-death metal band with prog flourishes I’m like ,”Whatever. Revocation.” Like, I still haven’t bothered to listen much to Periphery, haha. You just don’t really need anyone else. Dudes are not only hysterical but their chops are like Mount Olympus qualifying demi-god type stuff. Metal Injection has the new video for title track “Deathless” from their latest corpse kicker of an album. The clip show them raging as only they can and features plenty to gawk at and get whiplash about.

Pointy guitars, tattoos and live footage abounds as well as a Kirk Windstein cameo. Check it out HERE.
