Formed in 2005, Boston, Massachusetts trio Revocation is comprised of vocalist/guitarist David Davidson, vocalist/bassist Anthony Buda, and drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne -- all of whom showcase incredible dexterity at their chosen instruments, even by heavy metal standards.
Armed with a super-technical thrash/death metal-style prizing virtuosity as much as heaviness and aggression, the group soon began attracting A&R men from numerous labels with their self-released Summon the Spawn EP (2006) and Empire of the Obscene album (2008). They eventually decided to sign with Relapse Records
, and delivered their second full-length, Existence Is Futile, in September 2009, also to very positive reviews. The band continued to accrue accolades with subsequent albums Chaos of Forms (2011) and Revocation (2013), and in 2014 they inked a deal with Metal Blade
and released Deathless, which would become their highest-charting LP to date. It would also be the last outing for drummer Dubois-Coyne, who would leave the group shortly after Deathless' release. 2016's Great Is Our Sin, the band's much anticipated sixth studio long-player, introduced new drummer Ash Pearson. ~ Eduardo Rivadavia, Rovi
