Revocation Premiere “Nihilistic Violence” Music Video

Revocation have premiered a new video for their new song “Nihilistic Violence.” This track is from the band’s new album “Netherheaven,” which was released today (September 9). Dave Davidson commented:

“‘Nihilistic Violence‘ is probably the meanest song we’ve ever recorded. It’s got a dark and menacing quality to it that the MyGoodEye production team perfectly captured for our latest music video. Bring your hardhats to the pit for this one because shit’s gonna get rowdy.”

Revocation Premiere New Song “Re-Crucified” Featuring George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (Cannibal Corpse) & The Late Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder)

Revocation have premiered a new song titled “Re-Crucified.” The track, which features George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (Cannibal Corpse) and the late Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder), will appear on the band’s new album “Netherheaven,” which will be released on September 9.

Revocation’s Dave Davidson commented:

“Normally we tend to close our albums with a more epic style of song, but with this record, I wanted to go in the opposite direction and end with a complete ripper. Inspired by ‘Dante’s Inferno’, this song is meant to feel like a journey through hell, and due to the story-like nature of the lyrics, I enlisted the vocal talents of Trevor Strnad and George ‘Corpsegrinder’ Fisher to aid in our journey into the abyss.

Tragically, I received word of Trevor‘s passing immediately after we had finished filming the music videos for ‘Netherheaven‘, and I was completely devastated by the news. Trevor was a close, personal friend of mine, and his passing was a terrible loss, not only for myself, but for the entire metal community.

I’m proud that I could be a part of Trevor‘s immense and storied legacy in some small way. His performance along with George‘s are two of the highlights of the record for me. Rest in power Trevor, you will be sorely missed but your legacy will never die.”

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.”

“Netherheaven” Track Listing:

01. “Diabolical Majesty”
02. “Lessons In Occult Theft”
03. “Nihilistic Violence”
04. “Strange And Eternal”
05. “Galleries Of Morbid Artistry”
06. “The 9th Chasm”
07. “Godforsaken”
08. “The Intervening Abyss Of Untold Aeons”
09. “Re-Crucified” (feat. The Black Dahlia Murder’s Trevor Strnad & Cannibal Corpse’s George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher)

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!”

Goldilush (Ex-Darkest Hour, Etc.) To Release Debut Album “Fragile Zombies” In April

Michael “Lonestar” Carrigan (ex-Darkest Hour) has launched a new project called Goldilush. The band’s debut album, “Fragile Zombies”, will be released on April 30. Carrigan worked on that effort with Chris Goodwin (ex-The Jonbenét), Phil Dubois (ex-Revocation), Timothy Java (ex-Dead To Fall), Paul Seymore, and Kenny Gardner.

“Fragile Zombies” Track Listing:

01. “Rattle”
02. “Imposter”
03. “Acid Rainbow”
04. “Overdrive (Go For A Ride)”
05. “Pink Mercedes”
06. “Party Every Night”
07. “A Little Sympathy”
08. “Love Vulture”
09. “Shiver”
10. “Better Than You”
11. “Honey Ear”
12. “Rain On My Parade”
13. “Feel Like Nothing”
14. “Draino”

Carrigan commented:

“For the past few years, I’ve been slowly and diligently working with a few friends on some new music. We bonded over our love of tunes with loud hooks, heavy distortion, & bad attitudes.

While the outside world plunged further into chaos and uncertainty, we honed & harnessed that negative energy and transformed it into 14 crushingly catchy jammers. Every week we will be releasing a new song until our album-Fragile Zombies-is released on April 30.

I wanna thank Kenny Gardner for all his hard work, dedication, and good vibes. You are one hell of a producer and an all around awesome dude!! You made this the most fun recording experience I’ve ever had, and IMO this is the best sounding album I’ve ever been a part of.

Thank you to Timothy Java, Phil Dubois, and Doug Adams for lending their incredible drumming skills and breathing life into these songs!

Chris Goodwin – Thank you for sharing the mic with me. We’ve been buds for almost 20 years, and we’re finally putting out some music together! Your knack for notes is truly a gift to the world!

This first song is called ‘Rattle’. It’s about an old friend of mine. Turn it up!”

Three tracks from the record, “Rattle,” “A Little Sympathy,” and “Imposter,” can be found below:
