REVOCATION Release Making-Of Video For 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). Deathless comes out the 14th Of October. Pre-order it on CD and vinyl via Metal Blade here.


The Glorious Gone, the band previously known as Argonauts, recently performed at this past weekend’s Gwar-B-Q in Richmond, Virginia. Fan-filmed footage captured the band performing a new track and you can witness it in all its riff-churning glory below.

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


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.

The track in question is “Absorbing Black Ignition” and will be featured on the group’s forthcoming album Labyrinth Constellation, which is out on February 18th via Profound Lore. The track rips through angular, malevolent riffing in Gorgutsian fashion while chaotic vocals gurgle and growl over it all. You should enjoy it. Head over to Metal Sucks to check it out.



Revocation’s cover of Metallica’s …And Justice For All closer “Dyer’s Eve” has surfaced online for your streaming pleasure. The track appears as an exclusive vinyl bonus track on their upcoming self-titled album, due out on August 6th.

Revocation Debut New Track “Fracked”


Progressive tech thrashers Revocation are currently streaming an all new track entitled “Fracked” off of their upcoming epic fourth full length, the self-titled Revocation, exclusively over at Loudwire. The anti-fracking anthem is definitely my favorite of the teased tracks so far, a more sustained and expansive track that treads along a more progressive inclination, boasting some almost electronic sounding complimentary basswork and an epic solo section. Musings aside, you can stream “Fracked” via Loudwire here and pre-order Revocation via Relapse Records here, out August 6th. Be sure to catch Revocation on the remaining dates of this year’s excellent Summer Slaughter tour.
