Revocation "Dismantle The Dictator"

Biography

Rarely does a band step to the forefront of a genre with such purpose and confidence. Revocation, the Boston-based modern metal band, have moved from relative obscurity to international critical acclaim and been anointed by the metal press and their peers alike as one of the brightest hopes for the genre at large.

Revocation was formed in 2006 by childhood friends Dave Davidson ... Read more in Amazon's Revocation Store

Editorial Reviews

Revocation returns with a new album of masterful modern metal in Chaos of Forms. Unforgettable songs bend, stop, twist, and shred at virtuosic levels while exploding with frenetic energy. As future classics Cradle Robber, Dissolution Ritual, No Funeral, Cretin and more show, each aspect of the band has been honed to deadly perfection and brings to fruition the promise that the previous full-length Existence Is Futile hinted at. Chaos of Forms proves beyond doubt that Revocation are masters of their craft and metal s finest new band.

Revocation came out with two great death/thrash albums in Empire of the Obscene and Existence is Futile. Chaos of Forms is a wonderful return to for for Revocation. Nay, it is not just a return to form, it is a perfection of the style meshing shown in the first two albums. With this album, Revocation proves once again that they can write multifaceted songs that provide the listener a unique time with sharp twists and turns.
Cretin starts the album just right, with a spider riff that is deadly.
From there, the album gets thrashy with Cradle Robber and Harlot.
Dissolution Ritual throws the first real twist with a latin inspired jazz acoustic interlude that really stands out and fits perfectly at the same time.
From there, another turn, a ballad of sorts, Revocation style, with Conjuring the Cataclysm.
No Funeral seems a little too happy and pop-ish to be Revocation and yet, Revocation pulls it off convincingly enough so that the metalhead's shouldn't have to feel embarrassed to like the song.
Fractal Entity is the only instrumental on the album and is really the only sub par song on the album, in my opinion. It is based on one riff that is changed rhythmically throughout the song.
Chaos of Forms is indeed chaotic! Very technical in the first half, then a surprising clean section that really is beautiful. An outro that really sounds like it would be a good album closer.
The Watchers starts out as a typical Revocation track. What really gets the train off the tracks is when the song goes hard rock and has a section with horns, an organ, and then a classical sounding solo. Really amazing stuff.
Beloved Horrifier is a straightforward thrash song that is surprisingly melodic.

As I said in my last review for them. Revocation is in a class of their own. This is for people who like adrenalin fueled tech death with some thrashy jazz stuff thrown in. They don't have the worn out chugging riffs (e.g. Meshuggah rip off artists today). These guys can actually write songs, provide variety and don't forget about the groove. Every song and album stand on its own. Can't wait for the next one.

If your a fan of metal BUY this CD you'll kick yourself for not buying it sooner AMAZING riffs, crazy technical-thrash guitar, with jazz and other influences that would normally sound out place, but sound so right. Definetly a tasty treat for the ears. Drags you in and makes you listen. MUST HAVE FOR A ANY metal COLLECTION. (also check out Existence is Futile)

To summarize my opinion of this band, so far this is one of the greatest meldings of sub-genres I've heard yet. Revocation filter out all the self-conscious aping of the recent thrash revival of the mid 00's and play this style with thrilling conviction. There are shades of death metal to be heard too and other audacious experiments such as a horn section on one song and solo breaks that have a pseudo-ska feel to them. I'll come forth and say that while it's easy to admire technicality in metal, it's also not the first aspect I'm drawn to when listening to the song as a whole. Too often it seems that too much emphasis on the challenges the players had constructing their music overcompensates for being unable to write any memorable guitar parts or hooks, two elements that personal taste aside are important things to attract listeners. Revocation play with expert technical precision, enough to satisfy listeners more preoccupied with time keeping, odd syncopation and swift rhythm and tempo changes. They play with a force and energy that's hard to deny.

While the other three players are no slouches, it's impossible to write this review without mentioning guitarist David Davidson's playing abilities. Compared to greats such as Eddie Van Halen and Dimebag, his solos elevate songs that already powerful songs to new heights. Check out his lead on the title cut: blistering, soulful and the kind I was humming a few seconds after hearing it. Awesome new discovery for me and I think any hype thrown their way is well earned.

I bought "Existence Is Futile" and I was stunned into disbelief at the level of songwriting, the coolest riffing next to Dimebag Darrell, if not even better (picture Dimebag being a big Frank Zappa fan and you'll be closer to understanding Dave Davidson's wonderfully twisted guitar work that has no parallel anywhere right now). Many people get somewhat overwhelmed with the onslaught of djent (I still have no idea what that even means, although it describes pretty much anybody ripping off Meshuggah or Dillinger Escape Plan) and bands trying to squeeze in forty three chord changes and as many tempo swings inside a four minute "song" that is more a collage of crazy disjointed sounds than a real song. It impresses with the obvious musicianship and then gets old real quick because even seasoned musician/fans like myself can't find anything to grab onto in the way of a hook or much less a tune.
Revocation is the thrash band that addresses this problem and triumphs mightily. Led by Dave Davidson, this outfit not only has the chops of the most formally educated musicians, including way cool jazzy breakdowns and wonderfully weird twirpy sounds courtesy of Davidson that make you laugh out loud. But this ain't no joke. The songs are tightly structured, have riffs bigger than Godzilla's balls, and keep a great thrash mode throughout.
Do not overlook this masterpiece or the debut "Existence Is Futile". Revocation will be the band to beat soon and only a few bands like Evile dare share a stage. I would love to see these Boston boys blow the great blimp Metallica off the stage for good. They are far better than any Big Four band and most second tier outfits, maybe with the exception of the previously mentioned Evile, Exodus or perhaps Kreator. Havoc and Revocation would be a double bill made in metal heaven.
