Great Album just started getting in to Revocation hopefully going to see them support cannibal corpse in October in The kentish Forum in Octobter this year. In my personnel opinion not as good as Chaos of forms album but still love it!

This album is seriously heavy. It's probably their heaviest album, well, it is their heaviest album. It's not quite as melodic in terms of hooks compared to Chaos of Forms, not to say there isn't any melody, but there's certainly an angrier and darker vibe to this album... which is great! I love really pissed off chaotic music and this album seriously delivers. It's still got the Revocation quirkiness, like the banjo in Invidious, and the angular and technical riffs that they're known for - it just sounds a hell of a lot more serious, which is both a good and a bad thing. I kinda miss some of the catchy choruses that where on Chaos of Forms and the previous albums. I like the whole mixture of the brutal technicality and then an epic choruses that you could almost sign along to. Having said that, this album definitely stands out in terms of it's heaviness and sheer epic-ness. The songs are great, the guitar playing is FANTASTIC (I really mean that Dave Davidson's guitar playing is just superb) and it's genuinely an amazing album. Essential in any metal fan's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revocation Is Awesome! 6 Aug. 2013
By J. Hill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I haven't listened to much of Revocation prior to this, having only given their 2009 release Existence is Futile a handful of spins, but I liked that album enough to give their new release a try. I'm very glad I did. The older album is good, but this stuff is absolutely great. I know I missed an album of theirs in between, but their songwriting ability seems to have matured noticeably between 2009 and 2013.

Here's my breakdown of the new self-titled Revocation. The Hive blazes out of the gate with some brilliant technical thrash guitars and double bass drumming, then kicks into absolute overdrive with a vicious blast beat. The last minute of the track slows down for some intricate soloing, and by the time the song's done, the band has gone through about five or six different subgenres of metal in under four minutes. I'm hearing thrash, death, and progressive metal, along with the tech. sub-subgenres of thrash and death. When a band starts an album with a track like this, it really creates a massive scope for the ensuing songs.

The next track, Scattering the Flock, throws in some powerhouse groove metal, showcasing even more diversity in Revocation's sound, but not without the seamless blend of technical thrash and brutal death metal from the first song. With a sound like this, I think they'd make Chuck Schuldiner proud. The vocals are improved over what I heard on "Existence", with less straight screaming than before. There's more of a growl in there now, making the vocals sound more death metal and less metalcore.

By the time the third song, Archfiend, kicks in, I'm getting reminded of one of the best technical bands in metal, Obscura. I hear a lot of similarities in the guitar work and approach to songwriting. They definitely have a different sound, but a very similar style. Then, by the end of the song, they're playing prog-metal that reminds me of old Opeth. Really, any analysis beyond this point would be superfluous. Highlights include every track. If you're interested in just buying a few mp3's, you could close your eyes and pick one and you wouldn't be disappointed. At least, if the preceding descriptions sound like your kind of music. Maybe a couple other highlights for me would be the bass work on Fracked, which is freakin' (or frackin') sweet. And the song Invidious sounds like a death metal Wrathchild America on steroids. Tough to explain that one, but if you know that band and listen to this song, you'll get it.

To any metal fan looking for something new, definitely give Revocation a try. They've been around a few years, but like the blurb on the front of the CD states, they're the best band you've never heard. They just haven't received much attention yet, but maybe this will be their breakthrough. They deserve a solid fanbase with music this good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revocation at their best 6 Aug. 2013
By K. McGinn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I didn't really jump on the Revocation bandwagon until their last full-length, Chaos of Forms. After hitting their back catalog and enjoying last year's Teratogenesis I came to the conclusion that Revocation has to be one of the most consistent bands today. The short version of this review states that Revocation will continue that same thought. While many bands use the "self-titled" album as an opportunity to re-establish a band, Revocation firmly stands as a testament to the core sound of the band and what they stand for.

Just in case you haven't heard of Revocation, a short description would be that of retro-thrash coupled with technical death metal. David Davidson's masterful guitar work is also a key component of the band's established sound, churning out meaty riffs and shredding solos like it was going out of style. David's vocals mainly stick in the harsh realm, with mid-range rasps with the occasional roars and pseudo-sung vocals sprinkled throughout. They aren't nothing particularly outstanding, but they fit the music well and leave plenty of room for the real stars to shine: the guitars. The ending of "Invidious" will undoubtedly be one of the most crushing and whiplash-inducing riffs you hear this year. Meanwhile, the ability to create memorable riffs without diluting their aggression is practically unmatched. "Numbing Agent" and "Fracked" practically bore their way into your ears and just won't let go. Honestly, there is at least one to two riffs in each song that will fight for space to be played on repeat in your brain for days. Then the soloing throughout (some favorites would be "Entombed by Wealth" and "Fracked") is extraordinary and will certainly put a smile on any metal lover's face.

While you can make a pretty good assumption about what you are going to hear on Revocation, that's not to say that the band doesn't throw in a few curve balls for good measure. The haunting atmosphere that set's up the record is one of the first "intros" I've enjoyed in quite some time, opening up directly into one of my favorite riffs. The acoustic break towards the finale of "Archfiend" offers the listener a moment to catch their breath before wrapping things up. Also, the banjo on display during "Invidious" can only be described as awesome. Some will note that the technicality usually present on a Revocation release is streamlined a bit here, but when you can compose songs so well that the instrumental track ("Spastic") is more interesting than many other bands entire catalog, I don't think there will be too many that have a problem with it.

If you have somehow missed out on the band until now, Revocation is the perfect place to start. While it doesn't change much from previous efforts, it certainly takes what they've done and presents it in a manner that shows them at the top of their game. Revocation has been generating a ton of buzz as of late, and it's nice to see it going to such a deserving band. This is the type of album that both older and younger metalheads can genuinely enjoy as well as pull in some newcomers to the scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern Metal Masterpiece 15 Aug. 2013
By DJones - Published on Amazon.com
Simply amazing! This is one of the best fusions of thrash and technical death metal ever. Iv'e been listening to this band for years now, and every album keeps getting better and better. This is a truly talented band with furious drumming, vicious vocals, and shredding guitar solos. I cant express how much i love this album, this is a must own for any metal head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metal's most varied attack 2 Sept. 2013
By Scott Hedegard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Revocation are one band those quick to label have a tough time with. These guys are, for summary purposes, a death band, but throw in thrash, Zappa-esque breakdowns and even some warped banjo to remind one of the more chaotic moments of latter King Crimson or perhaps Animals as Leaders. It's the twist that sets Revocation apart.
The newest album is smartly trimmed down from their last couple of albums, that were great on their own, but tended to meander somewhat. David Davidson this time around has packed his amazing bag of tricks into a more compact form without sacrificing the ingenuity and quirkiness of the older material. Davidson is one of the best guitarists out there who should be in the same hero status league as contemporaries like Tosin Abasi and Fredrick Thordendahl. He may well be on his way now.
"Revocation" is death metal that will appeal to djent and progressive metal fans as well. While I personally am tiring quickly of blast beats, the band is nonetheless one of the best out there, and only other first class acts like Havoc, Meshuggah and other heavyweights can provide real competition. It'll take more time to pick this CD apart by track because it's a complex and layered work, the kind that reveals new twists and turns for numerous listens. It is one of the best overall metal releases of the year.
