Boston-based progressive death metal outfit Revocation return from the Lovecraftian outer limits on new album, 'Netherheaven'. Four years in the making, the Billboard-charting trio — featuring Dave Davidson (vocals/guitars), Ash Pearson (drums), and Brett Bamberger (bass) - meticulously explore the allegorical and literal aspects of Hell as they dig deeper into the darker, more diabolical side of death metal. In short, where the previous album, 'The Outer Ones' (2018), jettisoned Revocation into the horrific maw of the cosmos, 'Netherheaven' bores deftly through the nine rings of Hell to directly confront Lucifer and his multitudinous faces. The album's stunning Renaissance-style Paolo Girardi (Firespawn, Power Trip) cover art says it all.
“We're definitely in more of a death metal mindset than on earlier albums in our catalog,” says Revocation songwriter/frontman Dave Davidson. “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."
With tracks like “Diabolical Majesty,” “Nihilistic Violence,” “Godforsaken,” and “Re-Crucified,” spotlighting the inimitable vocal talents of Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) and George 'Corpsegrinder' Fisher (Cannibal Corpse), the gifted threesome aren't holding back.
