Revocation Detail New Album & Announce Tour

Revocation confirm “The Outer Ones” as the title to their seventh studio effort, which will be out on September 28th through Metal Blade Records.

Tells the group's frontman/guitarist Dave Davidson:

“I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date. Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route, they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.”


“The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”

Additionally, the band have just confirmed a North American headlining tour with Exhumed, Rivers Of Nihil and Yautja. Below's where the trek will hit: More...

Rivers Of Nihil Drops Off Mexican Shows

Rivers Of Nihil was slated to perform in Mexico on February 2nd, 4th, and 5th with Beyond Creation, but the band has now pulled out of the shows due to issues with the promoter. The Rivers Of Nihil Facebook page just issued this statement:

"Sadly due to reasons that are completely out of our control we will be unable to make it to Mexico next week with our pals in Beyond Creation.

"The promoter in Mexico, Sergio Viveros Roa, completely disregarded his promise to set up any sort of travel or accommodations for us, as he had agreed to do several months ago when we were first asked to play these shows.

"We'd advise other bands considering working with Sergio to proceed cautiously. This was completely out of our control. We apologize and hope to see our Mexican fans soon." More...

Rivers Of Nihil Recruits New Drummer

Progressive death metal outfit Rivers of Nihil has amicably parted ways with drummer Alan Balamut. Regarding the split, Alan comments:

"Hey everyone. I'm sure many of you already know and some may not but I have decided to part ways with Rivers of Nihil a few months ago in good terms. The reason is simply that I need to financially situate myself (NYC isn't easy) and my urge to finish school in Music Production. I found Dylan Potts just before my departure and I believe he fits in and performs with the band in phenomenal ways.

"The whole ride was an amazing and unforgettable experience and I have nothing but respect for each member, former member, our manager, all the people I've met and Metal Blade Records. In the meantime I'll be doing session work and other music productions, and I'll be more open for touring after I finish school in 2016-- and if Rivers ever need any assistance, I'll be right there for them. I wish the band all the success for next year and beyond!"

With Alan's departure, Rivers of Nihil welcome Dylan Potts to join the ranks. To showcase his talent behind the kit, the band has filmed a new drum play-through for the track "Perpetual Growth Machine," taken from latest album "Monarchy." More...
