The Black Dahlia Murder, Revocation, Etc. Members To Guest On New Nitesoil EP

“Abusement Park” Track Listing:

01. “Odio” (feat. Jessica Pimentel of Brujeria/Alekhine’s Gun)
02. “The Extinction Gene” (feat. Dave Davidson of Revocation/Gargoyl)
03. “Burn Me Down” (feat. Aaron Heinold of Hivesmasher)

05. “Mother Of Lust” (feat. Gost)
06. “D.S.I.T.S.” (feat. Doug Moore of Pyrrhon)

Godla commented:

“We started this band as a joke we thought no one would hear; a folder of sick riffs from Nick titled “Slammy Sosa”. Once I spent weeks rearranging and tracking grooves, black mailing some killer death metal vocalists to come over to my house and participate, and kidnapping one of the sickest engineers in the game to mix and master this shit in order to be released…we’re still a joke. But at least it sounds legit, and it’s all for charity you chumps!”

The first single, “Burn Me Down” (feat. Aaron Heinold), can be found below:

Guitarist Dan Gargiulo Exits Revocation

Dan Gargiulo has announced his departure from Revocation. The guitarist is leaving the group “to focus on other aspects of [his] life and other musical endeavors.”

Gargiulo said the following:

“I have been reluctant to post anything about myself in the midst of what’s going on in the world, but I feel the need to so that my bandmates can move forward. I’ve decided to leave Revocation to focus on other aspects of my life and other musical endeavors. I know they’ll continue to succeed and I’m excited to see who steps up to replace me.”

Revocation added:

“What’s up everyone, we’ve got some important news to share with you all.

Dan has announced today that he is leaving Revocation. Over the past decade we’ve toured the world together and have released 5 full length records and an EP since he joined, needless to say we’ve had an excellent run. There is no bad blood between Dan or any of the members of the band, it was simply time for him to change paths and focus on other musical and life endeavors. We wish him nothing but the best in the future and we’re excited to hear his next musical offerings. We’ll miss ya DG!

Writing is currently well underway for our next full length, we plan to continue on as a 3 piece for now but we’ll be bringing in a 2nd guitar player down the line once we start the tour cycle for our next full length.”

Godla commented:

“By keeping the set times between 5 and 15 minutes for each artist, it allows me to not only keep things moving, but mix it up in ways that conventional festivals simply can’t. Every single hour will contain big names and emerging artists right next to each other.

I’m trying to look at the bright side of our current situation, and not only make this an entertaining way to see the artists you love flex their creativity in new ways, but hope this event acts as a place of discovery for every viewer out there.

Finding a band or artist to fall in love with is the mark of a great festival to me, and it’s my honor to share the work of these amazing individuals I curated because I’m passionate about them. I’ve been in touch with all of them every step of the way, and some even managed to throw me a few surprises.

I’m honored and humbled to have all of them part of this, they truly went above and beyond to showcase their craft for the Slay At Home fest, and I can’t wait for the world to see something really special come to life this weekend.”

Money raised from the event will benefit MusiCares and Global Giving.

The experience of a live concert is irreplaceable, but my aim with Slay At Home is to provide every person in the world an experience they haven’t seen yet, right from their own devices. I’ve never been more proud to be part of the metal community and have so many great friends willing to join the fun, as we support two great organizations.”
