Revocation reveals new album, ‘Netherheaven’; launches video for “Diabolical Majesty”

On September 9th, progressive death metal outfit Revocation will release their eighth full-length, Netherheaven, via Metal Blade Records. For a first preview of the album, a video for the new single “Diabolical Majesty” 

Revocation songwriter/front-man Dave Davidson comments: “It’s always hard choosing the first single off of a new album, but we felt that ‘Diabolical Majesty’ really captures the mood of ‘Netherheaven‘ overall. It’s a thrashing, death metal ripper that’s got a little something for everyone, whether you’re the first one to activate a circle pit at a show or if you just like to bang your fucking head. The music video was filmed by our good friends Dave Brodsky and Allison Woest, and they’ve once again outdone themselves on this one! Special thanks to the Sk8 Liborius crew for letting us rage in their space for a couple days. 

Lyrically, ‘Diabolical Majesty’ was inspired by the Satanic Temple’s ongoing struggle with the religious right and their battle to display the statue of the Baphomet in the face of censorship and legal action. To quote American author Chris Hedges, ‘The merger of the corporatists with the Christian right is the marrying of Godzilla to Frankenstein.’ These words ring even truer now that extremist Christian politicians have begun imposing their authoritarian rule as they seek to completely undo the separation of church and state.”

Brett Bamberger (bass) adds: “Filming for ‘Diabolical Majesty’ hyped me up on every level! You can’t beat ripping a video with the crew WHILE having a session and several Busch Waters. Skating at Liborius reminded me of my first time checking out SPOT & Asbury Park when I was a kid. I don’t think I’ve even seen a vert ramp since those days since I’ve always been a tech dawg! It was really special to be able to combine all my beloved passions in the sesh & hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!”

Upon record release, Revocation will kick off a North American headlining tour with Krisiun, Alluvial, and Inoculation as support. “We cannot wait to play a bunch of new songs on our first headlining tour back since the pandemic,” enthuses Davidson. “We’ll be joined alongside the Brazilian berserkers in Krisiun, progressive death metal wizards Alluvial and newcomers Inoculation who combine an OSDM aesthetic with a more modern, technical approach. Don’t miss the killer lineup, come out and circle pit for Satan!”
