Revocation is a heavy metal band from Boston, MA and they formed in 2006. They've come a long way and will be releasing a brand new album on July 11 of this year. The album is called Great Is Our Sin, and have said that this is a defining record for them.
While listening to the album, I was very much so reminded of bands like Atreyu, Slipknot -somewhat, and a few others I couldn't quite place. Those who prefer a great deal of growling and whatnot, will definitely love Revocation.
I'm usually a big one on lyrics, but in this case, for some reason I was more drawn to the music. Its heavy, and very well done. I've found sometimes with the heavier styles, things can get drowned out some, but that's not the case with Revocation. They found the perfect blend, and for that, I applaud them.
If pressed to pick a favorite song off this album, I would have to say its probably, "Monolithic Ignorance." All the songs had different special charms to them, but for some reason, that one stood out the most to me.
"Monolithic Ignorance" not only has a cool name, but has a lot of great instrumentals to back up the heavy vocals. I also really enjoy the fact that in this song in particular, the front man, David Davidson, threw in some clean vocals. It really added something to the song, and I appreciated that.
I don't want to give too much away, but I will say its definitely worth checking out. You can get the album officially on July 11, so not that much longer of a wait is ahead. You can also check out more music from Revocation over on their Facebook and official website!
While you're there, be sure to take a look at their tour dates, because starting July 26 they will be doing a tour here in the US. That tour will go through August 21, and then in October they head over to Europe to perform in Germany, The Netherlands, the UK, and more through November 11!
Use this brand new release as way to get excited and then enjoy Revocation live and stay tuned for more content about them including a biography and an interview! Both are coming soon.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
