Revocation Premiere “Diabolical Majesty” Music Video

Revocation have premiered a new video for their new song “Diabolical Majesty.” This track is from their new album “Netherheaven,” which will be released on September 9.

Vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson had the following to say about the song:

“It’s always hard choosing the first single off of a new album, but we felt that ‘Diabolical Majesty‘ really captures the mood of ‘Netherheaven‘ overall. It’s a thrashing, death metal ripper that’s got a little something for everyone, whether you’re the first one to activate a circle pit at a show or if you just like to bang your fucking head. The music video was filmed by our good friends Dave Brodsky and Allison Woest, and they’ve once again outdone themselves on this one! Special thanks to the Sk8 Liborius crew for letting us rage in their space for a couple days.

Lyrically, ‘Diabolical Majesty‘ was inspired by the Satanic Temple’s ongoing struggle with the religious right and their battle to display the statue of the Baphomet in the face of censorship and legal action. To quote American author Chris Hedges, ‘The merger of the corporatists with the Christian right is the marrying of Godzilla to Frankenstein.’ These words ring even truer now that extremist Christian politicians have begun imposing their authoritarian rule as they seek to completely undo the separation of church and state.”

Bassist Brett Bamberger added:

“Filming for ‘Diabolical Majesty‘ hyped me up on every level! You can’t beat ripping a video with the crew WHILE having a session and several Busch Waters. Skating at Liborius reminded me of my first time checking out SPOT & Asbury Park when I was a kid. I don’t think I’ve even seen a vert ramp since those days since I’ve always been a tech dawg! It was really special to be able to combine all my beloved passions in the sesh & hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!”

Davidson also commented on the album:

“We’re definitely in more of a death metal mindset than on earlier albums in our catalog. We’re focusing on how we can write the best death metal-centric album that we possibly can while still pushing our boundaries. The new songs on ‘Netherheaven‘ are evil and sinister but also have a progressive element to them to keep things interesting. It’s got our stamp on it, no question.”

In other news, Revocation have also announced a North American tour with Krisiun, Alluvial, and Inoculation. Davidson said the following about that:

“We cannot wait to play a bunch of new songs on our first headlining tour back since the pandemic. We’ll be joined alongside the Brazilian berserkers in Krisiun, progressive death metal wizards Alluvial and newcomers Inoculation who combine an OSDM aesthetic with a more modern, technical approach. Don’t miss the killer lineup, come out and circle pit for Satan!”
