REVOCATION Streaming New Track “Labyrinth Of Eyes”

      Sample

Revocation have unleashed “Labyrinth Of Eyes”, the third single from the group’s upcoming fifth LP and Metal Blade Records debut, Deathless. Taking a retreat from the brutality of the two prior singles, “Madness Opus” and “Deathless”, “Labyrinth Of Eyes” is a mid-paced, technical and rather notey number, invoking Cynic-ian overtones whilst  still maintaining the darker feel of the new album. Check out “Labyrinth Of Eyes” via Invisible Oranges here and pre-order Deathless out next Tuesday via Metal Blade Records here. Catch Revocation supporting Deathless now on the remaining dates of their current tour run with the legendary Crowbar, Havok, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed For Apocalypse and later on their European run with Cannibal Corpse and Aeon and even later on their Australian run with Thy Art Is Murder, full details below.  Continue reading

REVOCATION Release Making-Of Video For Deathless

Revocation-Deathless

Revocation have released the first episode of the Making-Of special feature for their upcoming Metal Blade Records debut and fifth LP, Deathless. Shot by Naughty Mantis Productions, who recently brought forwards Whitechapel’s crowd-funded documentary, the pro-shot footage features one-on-one interviews with each individual band member on the weight and inner gimmicks of the new record. Personally, I feel the video missed the opportunities for the band’s well known comedic shenanigans but it’s a pretty tight affair. Peep the teaser below and be sure to catch Revocation on one of their upcoming tours (US with Crowbar, Havok, Fit For An Autopsy and Armed For Apocalypse, Europe with death metal peers Cannibal Corpse and Aeon and Australia with Thy Art Is Murder).

Best Of 2013: Eric’s Favorite Albums Of The Year

2013best

Hello again, fellow Aftermathers! My prolonged absence from the American Aftermath world officially ends NOW with this penultimate annual post, a small but personally necessary pittance to the plentiful albums and artists that sustained me throughout this most bountiful year in extreme music. The following thirty item list reflects full-length albums only with an aural adherence to the hardcore and powerviolence realms as per my listening habits this year. A ton of awesome death metal revivals as well as resurgences from other notables in the general metal realm happened this year (Gorguts, Carcass, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Ulcerate etc.) of which I listened(or rather actively listened) to practically NONE. I simply wasn’t feeling it at this year and intend to return to survey these releases at another time. Thanks to the Aftermath crew especially Ross Gnarly, Lane “The Machine” Oliver, and Josh Huddleston, the bands and musicians, and last but not least, you, the readers! Peep the list after the jump.
