Revocation Releases “The Outer Ones”
Technical death metal band Revocation has just released The Outer Ones, which takes their heavy sound into the realm of sci-fi.
“The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created,” says guitarist/vocalist David Davidson. “Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is, of course, some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”
While The Outer Ones is the band’s seventh studio album, that doesn’t mean their settling into their sound. Revocation is continuing to push themselves, says bassist Brett Bamberger.
“We’re really hyped on this record and I feel like the band keeps getting more proficient because we’re all working hard and practicing hard and studying,” he told Insert Review Here earlier this year. “There’s not a day that goes by where we aren’t geeking out.”
That’s obvious on the title track, “The Outer Ones”:
